If we had a time machine, we’d (most likely) pop back to the ’70s for some rad wedding crashing! Similarly obsessed with retro weddings, the team behind today’s editorial is drawn to all things disco! Together with Anything But Gray Events, we are bringing back the bold, + mellow yellow feels from the ’70s in this inspired shoot at The East Angel.
This styling has all the buttery colors we cherish so much from the ’70s with a modernized twist. And there’s no shortage of disco vibes as the team went to balls to the wall with decor…literally! After a very stressful 2020, it’s time to bring back these mellow yellow vibes with a warm color palette + pops of unexpected surprise. Peterson Design and Photography is groovin’ from behind the lens:
Modernizing retro styles starts with elevating those classically used colors + designs. Roseville Designs nails it with this invitation suite.
You say dramatic bridal cape. We say when + where? Amanda James Designs is the true gem, creating this embroidered gold + floral bride cape. Indeed, it adds just the right amount of extra drama to the bride’s streamlined, sexy jumpsuit. The badass bridal look compliments the groom’s smooth, caramel-colored suit from Friar Tux.
We’re team ‘Men in Marigold!’
Rad Retro Wedding Ceremony Backdrop
Why hello, mellow yellow. Flowers by Lady Buggs brought the wow factor with ombre, retro wedding installations throughout!
So many statement looks here. Especially the backdrop from West + Rose.
Bridal glam is brought together with makeup by Despina Scandalis and hair by Lio Ramirez. Not to mention the encrusted bridal crown, which is a chic nod to Amanda Gorman! If you need even more sparkle (we always do), check out the geometric-inspired engagement ring from Jewels by Grace on the bride’s finger.
Disco Balls to the Walls Wedding Reception
The only way to turn up a retro wedding is with modern cocktails! After a long night of boogieing, kick your platforms back with a colorful cocktail from Cali Craft Cocktails on this groovy bar.
Mellow yellow ombre tabletop decor all on brand with the groovy wedding inspo. Rentals from La Pinata Party Rentals.
Because you can’t ever have enough sparkle, Sugar Studio incorporates a real, rotating disco ball into the multi-tiered wedding cake! In true retro wedding fashion, the cake is adorned with that same ’70s swoop. Talk about top tier.
