Vintage Wedding Inspiration: 1950’s Wedding Shoot

What do you get when you put?Whim?+?Hive Events?+?Carla Ten Eyck?+?Hartford Prints?+?The White Dress by the Shore?+?Jim Altieri?in one photo shoot together?! A kick a$$ shoot that actually feels like a good old fashioned party instead of work!?We hope the design of this shoot inspires you to add a little bit of 1950’s nostalgia to your wedding or rehearsal party.

{whimspiration}?The inspiration for this shoot came from our culture?s love of nostalgia. A longing for a simpler time…all-american happiness, when all anyone needed was their happy family, a hula hoop and jello mold to have a little fun at a party. ?Whim clients always ask us for ways to meld the past & present in to their wedding designs. So we went vintage on ya’ll – an airstream, bouffants, hobnail vases, snapdragons & begonias, deviled eggs & jello molds, mad Men-esque fashion, old films and a picnic table that mom would be proud of!?Tucked in the woods at?the Essex Conference Center & Retreat,?the venue is perfect for an outdoor party and wedding.
