A Bohemian Winter Wedding with Vintage Flair

Happy 2015! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and a happy celebration into the new year.

Let’s begin the new year with some old fashioned glam! Check out at our modern take on a 1920’s Bohemian Wedding that we designed.  We were so lucky to work with some incredibly talented local wedding professionals and were totally inspired by the Speakeasy vibe at Hollywood Schoolhouse.  Thanks to Courtney Bowlden Photography for capturing all the vintage details – this shoot just makes our hearts go pitter-patter!

Hollywood School House www.olivedesignhouse.com

We wanted to pay homage to venue’s original build time and play up its amazing features like the rustic exposed brick, classic hardwood floors, over sized dark wood bar, antique furniture, and crystal chandeliers.

Some true vintage and vintage-inspired garments and accessories provided by Pretty Parlor Bridal Boutique reflected the space perfectly and nodded to the 20s/30s era.

Bridal Bouquet www.olivedesignhouse.com

Flowing floral bouquets and arrangements by Distinctive Design Florists set an elegant yet whimsical tone for the day.

Wedding Ceremony www.olivedesignhouse.comWe’ve created a casual yet charming ceremony, using a collection of vintage books wrapped with twine, handmade decor pieces, and of course beautiful fresh flowers.

Playful paper wands sat amongst the seats inviting guests to join in the celebration.

Seattle Farm Tables provided the beautiful handmade barn-wood table that was fit for a celebration with family and friends. The rich wood tones of the table were a perfect backdrop for the cream colored plates and gold flatware that we selected from AA Party Rentals.

We fell in love with the floral napkins from World Market which added a subtle touch of pattern and color. Loose but sophisticated flowers, mismatched decanters, and more handmade fabric garlands were displayed in the center of the table.

We thought involving natural elements like the bamboo chairs from AA Party Rentals would nicely mimic the details of the design of the menus and table numbers.

One of our favorite features inside the venue is the beautiful dark wood bar, we added some color and jazzed it up with a handmade tassel garland, touches of gold, and our collection of vintage decanters.

Unique bite sized treats dripping in details like gold frosting and hand painted flowers created by Janti Sun added a sweet finishing touch.

invitation suite www.olivedesignhouse.comIt was important for us to ensure that commonalities in design elements of both printed goods and decor were tied together and noticeable in the finer details. For example, the bamboo chairs used in our table design were represented in some of the graphics used in the invitations and paper goods. For the envelope liner, we created a custom pattern with a repeating shape that is also found in the gold flatware and pedestal vases.

With the use of a modern color scheme and repetitive elements, all of the invitation pieces worked seamlessly together hinting at history while still remaining current and unique.

 As a final thank you, mini bottles of liquor displayed with a thoughtful tag were offered as a reminder of this chic vintage inspired affair.
