Last October, I had the best time collaborating with a team of fabulous wedding creatives to put together a Route 66 Inspired Wedding Shoot. This was seriously one of my favorite things I’ve done as a wedding designer to date, which is why I am so happy to share the images with you today. Everything turned out so well that the whole thing was featured on Style Me Pretty! I wish I could take credit for the idea itself, but that claim belongs to our talented photographer (and my foxy fiance), Tim Ronca. The two of us took a trip down Route 66 and came upon a little town called Newberry Springs. We knew right away that this was the perfect backdrop for our couple’s wedding.
I took the idea to Kelly of Kelly Makes Things and Whitney of Five Sparrow Design Studios and the three of us ran with it, designing each and every vintage, fun and quirky detail to the nines! As you can see, the smallest details coupled with the already fantastic background (and a beautiful couple) make for some gorgeous shots!
Before I completely dive in, let me pause to give credit where credit is due and show a little vendor love:
Planning & Design: Marisa Nicole, Weddings & Events, Photography: Ronca Productions, Styling & Design: Kelly Makes Things, Graphic Design: Five Sparrows Design Studios, Floral Design: Margit Holakoui Florist, Vintage Rentals: The Vintage Table Co., Venue: Bagdad Cafe
One of my favorite set-ups was the “fuel up” area: It is amazing how bringing just a few of the right items together can create a super cute refreshment area. All we needed was an old table, doughnuts, coffee and a fun sign set-up next to an old gas pump and voilà:
Every-time I look at this sweets buffet, my mouth waters (we got to eat the left-overs and let me tell you, the red velvet cake was seriously yummy)!
Since our couple just loves a good road trip, we thought we’d have the wedding guests help Greg & Ginger figure out where they should explore next. As they give the bride and groom their road trip location suggestion, they are able to share something personal with the happy couple while signing their ‘guestbook’ at the same time… two birds, one stone!
Of course, with names like Ginger & Greg, designer cocktails are a must!
And when the day is done, the happy couple hit the road, seeking their next adventure!
