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!

Modern Art Museum Wedding: Kathleen + Allan

From just a quick glance at that photo above, we knew we’d love Kathleen + Allan BIG time! They’re creative, fun, and a tad offbeat, and they wanted their Riverside Art Museum wedding to reflect just that! When it came to the day’s event design, their goal was for everything to feel effortless, but still stylish, and to incorporate as much of themselves (and the things they love) as they could into the celebration. And the museum itself had just the quirky feel that they were going for; they loved that they could have the ceremony in one of the galleries and an alfresco reception out on the rooftop! We think it sounds pretty perfect, too!

Caleb John Hill, thanks so much for sharing these beautiful photos with us today and Kathleen + Allan, congratulations! We wish you all the best!
