A Great Gatsby Wedding

Posted on 5th May 2014

The Great Gatsby has enticed and entranced us for decades. The recent release of the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio was a fresh reminder of why this book has captured our attention and imaginations. It gives vintage a whole new beauty and allure, and it makes the perfect style for a wedding.


A Great Gatsby styled wedding is vintage, sophisticated, and bold, with rich accents and vintage jewelry, dapper style, and elegant lines. The bride and groom in this Gatsby themed wedding beautifully captured the style of the book.


A lush, natural setting is the perfect backdrop for this Gatsby styled wedding, paying homage to the bold, vintage style, while providing a pleasant contrast to the cream and ivory tones throughout.


The groom’s wooden bow tie of choice for this momentous occasion was the Floyd. The grey fabric aligned nicely to the groom’s cream colored tux, and the dark hardwood stands out against such a light background. The result is simple, elegant, and beautiful.


The groom wasn’t the only one to wear such fine hardwood for this Gatsby styled wedding. The groomsmen wore the Clyde another of our wooden bow ties made from a dark hardwood.


This Gatsby styled wedding is vintage, elegant, and sophisticated, a bold reminder that you can indeed repeat the past, and that it is beautiful.

Heather and Antonio: A Vintage Southern California Wedding

Posted by Lacey Wilcox on 4th May 2014

Heather and Antonio were married in beautiful Southern California. For their outdoor ceremony, they wanted a rustic, vintage style as the theme for their wedding day. Their vintage wedding featured a soft color palette, handmade details all around, and bouquets of roses, dahlias, and amaranthus.


The key to Heather and Antonio’s success in creating such a beautiful rustic wedding is their attention to detail. Almost every aspect of this wedding was handmade. Friends helped them DIY antique furniture finds to provide decor, table areas, and seating; the flower girl boxes and ring bearers book stacks were made by hand; and the invitations and stationary were done by hand as well.


Heather and Antonio wanted their wedding to be an opportunity to display their unique personality and style, as well as the individual styles of the members of their bridal party. Each bridesmaid chose a different dress in the same color. Groomsmen wore 1920-s themed ensembles, with white shirts, black trousers, vests and suspenders, newsboy style hats, and of course, wooden bow ties.


Antonio and some of his groomsmen wore the Floyd, our wooden bow tie made from walnut, etched with a plaid design, and wrapped in light grey fabric. Its tone and color coordinated perfectly with the soft, vintage palette for this rustic outdoor wedding.


Heather and Antonio, congratulations on a beautiful ceremony, and the beginning of your life together. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your vintage wedding day!
