Mid-Century Modern Wedding Inspiration

mid century modern inspiration

Vintage, glam, rustic, whimsical – seriously we love it all. And today’s mid-century modern styled editorial is definitely speaking our language. The team (led by Ellie Koleen Photography + Drops Of Honey Designs) shot at Historic Seven Sycamores in Ivanhoe, California. The space was originally a citrus packing house built in the 1930’s and the vintage windows were brought in from an old school house when it was remodeled to become a wedding venue. Pretty awesome, right?

We love the long-sleeved dress by Houghton (from The Dress Theory) + the desert-inspired florals by Brown Bunny Flowers were such a perfect fit for this design-centric shoot. So, couples who hope to capture a bit of this fun era for their big day be sure to take a few notes + pin a few ideas. They just might come in handy later!

Romantic Destination Wedding in Los Cabos Mexico: Ann + Kyle

beach wedding

Although they love Mexico as much as any couple possibly could, Ann + Kyle (self-described as somewhat traditional) had trouble finding a venue formal enough for their wedding until they laid eyes on Palmilla in Los Cabos. Ann tells us, It was our literal Heaven on earth: the food, the people, the chapel on the hill, everything is a dream. They included lots of meaningful, family-oriented details into their celebration and the incredible design by Lisa Vorce CO + florals by Mindy Rice Design brought a strong sense of warmth + charm to the destination setting.

Kyle + Ann invited the amazing Elizabeth Messina to Mexico to capture their special day + we don’t doubt you’ll find a favorite photo or detail to swoon over for the rest of the afternoon!

More of Ann + Kyle’s beautiful wedding can also be seen in the premiere issue of GERALDINE Magazine, available for purchase here. Elizabeth photographed the cover, which can be seen below, and shares more details with us about this beautiful, new publication:

This is a wedding magazine for creatives. I love GERALDINE Magazine’s emphasis on artisans. It’s innovative and soulful. There is a wonderful ensemble of features, from real weddings to profiles on inspiring people and the magazine’s thick matte pages feel wonderful in your hands. I feel truly honored to have photographed the cover story for the premiere issue.
