Gatbsy-Themed Fall Wedding Inspiration

1920s fall inspiration

Today’s beautiful styled shoot, captured + designed by Shannon Elizabeth, pulls inspiration from The Great Gatsby and melds it with a bundle of warm + comforting details that represent the fall season. The shoot took place on the grounds of an old, abandoned reception center that feels reminiscent of an overgrown English garden. Such a cool, rustic backdrop! We’re madly in love with the timeless, 1920’s bridal style + the autumn-inspied floral design by St. Thomas Floral. And with tons of gorgeous details, perfect for incorporating into a fall wedding or celebration, there is so much prettiness to pin + share with your wedding artists! :)
