Mid-Century Metals Wedding Inspiration

mid century metals inspiration

We’re big fans of mid-century decor + design here at GWS. So, as soon as we laid eyes on this super pretty shoot, which takes all the best elements of this fun + stylish era and translates them beautifully into picture-perfect wedding inspiration, we were definitely smitten! Kelsey + Talon of Feather and Twine were the talent behind the lens + Jennifer Laura Design conceptualized + designed the session. And choosing 5226 Elm in Houston for their backdrop was definitely a fab choice. The crisp, white gallery walls were just begging to be adorned with all kinds of mid-century pretty, and the breathtaking outdoor courtyard was the perfect spot to set up a sweet, stylish tablescape + snag a few pretty portraits! See for yourself…

Majorly love this swagged chain ceremony site installation and the bride’s lovely protea + ranunculus bouquet, which included artfully infused metal touches, like gold + copper nuts and bolts!

Winifred Bean’s Tulipe dress is one of our all time faves + was a perfect fit for the tone of the shoot. It’s currently available in the GWS shop, so pop over there for more details + to make it yours! Oh, and it comes in blush too!

The table was filled with fun metal detailing, our fave being the installation of washers, which Jennifer spray painted gold + fashioned as a twist on a table runner. And underfoot there was a pretty pile of layered rugs – something we always love!
