How to Plan a Luxurious and Romantic Vintage Wedding in an Urban Venue
Today I have some spectacular creative wedding inspiration from Wedding Business Club member Marianne Blackham Photography. She recently photographed the intimate vow renewal of Hayley from Fairytale Pursuits.
Marianne and Hayley combined the vow renewal with a styled shoot so Marianne could show how to plan a luxurious and romantic vintage winter wedding in an urban venue. She’s often asked how to make this happen so Marianne is here to share the details so you can successfully re-create this theme yourself.
To add a luxurious touch make sure the place settings reflect that goal.
Include a champagne flute, wine glasses, as well as a glass for water. Make sure there are the appropriate number of plates and utensils, as demonstrated below.
If the venue is urban but a vintage or romantic feeling is desired then make sure to use decor to reflect that.
For example the DJ brought vintage equipment to add a vintage touch to a very urban venue. Also look for vintage landmarks around the venue to get pictures at to add a vintage touch . . . as demonstrated below.
