Retro-Mod Moto Wedding Inspiration

side by side motorcycle

There is a pretty constant stream of pretty vintage weddings + inspiration floating around the blog-o-sphere daily – and we aren’t complaining! At GWS, we love a good vintage-inspired celebration! But we also know that so many of you are looking for design ideas that skew more retro or mid-century modern, so today’s gorgeous shoot, photographed by the lovely Jessica Claire, is sure to provide you with some super fun + colorful inspiration! The Amorology gals did an incredible job of styling this editorial to portray a stylish, retro-mod feel with an adventurous undertone. According to the team, Every good relationship craves a little adventure + by showing this duo hitting the road in a retro vespa and side car, in a send off like no other, we hope to inspire couples to go somewhere they’ve never been.

The team utilized the hubcap wall at STUDIO 1342 to invite guests to “find their name and park it” with custom plexi air freshner escort cards created by Pitbulls & Posies. Love it!

More from Heather of Amorology, Our table was made up with a gorgeous lush assortment of flowers in shades of burgundy, pinks, caramels + gold which was accented with teals + jade in the glassware and plates. Rear view menus sat at each place setting upon custom hexagon chargers that we created while place cards lay upon carefully chosen plates to give a nod to spoked wheels.
