60’s-Inspired Smog Shoppe Wedding: Shannon + Nick

60s inspired wedding

Guys, Shannon + Nick have some serious style! But we’re sure you could already tell for yourself from that opening image. For their incredible, timeless Smog Shoppe wedding, they were inspired by 1960’s style, Mia Farrow and “cool cats looking cool” (awesome!). They incorporated traditions they felt passionate about + ditched the ones they felt weren’t as meaningful to them – and we encourage all couples to do the same!

Their day was filled with all kinds of beautiful details crafted by The Love Riot + Jesi Haack Design, which you’ll see in a sec, like rustic hanging floral boxes, a lazer cut escort card backdrop and some the most incredible ceremony site draping ever! And we like that they put a big emphasis on the party aspect of things, too, inviting Pharmacie LA to whip up delicious drinks + keeping the party going strong with 80’s new wave + timeless garage rock courtesy of DART DJs!

And we’re super glad Steve Cowell was there to capture + share it all with us today!

Our accidental first look made for a special surprise moment! Instead of a posed/planned moment, which would have been lovely, Nick popped out of an elevator to find me being photographed on a landing in the lobby of the historic Culver Hotel.

And since we kinda fell in love with Shannon + Nick’s wedding playlist, we thought we’d share it with you guys!

Get a planner. Prioritize where you want the money to go, realizing that you can't have everything you want. Don't be afraid to break tradition and add your own elements to the ceremony, ie, a "diamond" capped walking stick for an 11 yr old to escort his new aunt down the aisle.

Autumn Woodland Wedding Inspiration from the Netherlands

woodsy netherlands inspiration

Today’s fun styled shoot comes to us all the way from the Netherlands! The team behind the pretty wanted to show brides that you can have a romantic, bohemian bash, even in the fall, and that you don’t have to let the season dictate your color palette! Here the stylist, Shirley at Bloom Wedding, used lots of pink + blue hues, mixed with the more traditional fall reds, oranges + yellows, to create a rustic + romantic setting perfect for a warm Indian Summer day! We imagine this editorial translating perfectly to an intimate, woodland elopement or vow renewal. Let’s have a look at the lovely photos, captured by Eppel Fotografie!

Playful Colorado Farm Wedding: Molly + Jeff

wedding party

Lovelies, meet Molly + Jeff! They’re a super laid-back + fun-loving duo who tied the knot at the sweetest little farm in Lyons, Colorado. We really love their wedding for so many reasons, but the bold, happy color palette, verdant, whimsical floral design, and awesome renovated airstream stand out as a few of our absolute favorite details! And in true farm wedding form, Molly + Jeff’s guests mingled with the likes of baby goats + chickens and found their seating spot written on an old ranch window placed in the back of a vintage work truck. Sounds charming, right? Lots of pinnable wedding ideas for sure!

Big thanks to EP Love + A Vintage Affair for sending this one our way!

Molly couldn’t have looked more ethereal if she tried! Her Tara LaTour Blanca gown (from Anna Be) + perfect floral crown crafted by A Florae are just SO GOOD!

My absolute favorite part about the day was our first look. It was so special to have those few sweet moments together to embrace, breathe, and truly feel the magnitude of what we were about to do. It's easy to get caught up in the little details, but in the end my favorite memories are of the feelings that were evoked by being surrounded by the people that we love the most.

So Molly + Jeff not only incorporated that rad airstream for photos + that old, vintage farm truck for their escort card display, but their getaway vehicle was a red 1972 VW bus! These two know what’s up! :) Big thanks to everyone below for all their hard work in making this wedding so amazing + congratulations to the happy couple! GWS wishes you nothing but the best!
