I’ve featured many weddings from JL Designs here on Lost in Decoration. It’s a great event planning firm in Orange County, CA with a real eye for beauty and sense of style. This tablescape was designed for a backyard party with a winter theme. I love the silver succulents!
I love this carnival inspired wedding featured on The Bedlam of Beefy. This theme is a great way to show off the personality of this couple. To me this wedding says fun, playful, and casual, all the way down to the bride and groom’s Converse sneakers and Keds. I also love the kissing booth and strung cafe lights. How dandy!
This Sunday evening to celebrate our independence day, I plan to attend the Liberty Belle Spectacular on the Empire Hotel Rooftop. It’s sure to be one hell of an event, filled with the spirit of the roarin’ ’20s, and hosted by Dandy Wellington (photo above), one of those fabulous New Yorkers I’m proud to know. He was actually just featured in this great article in Time Out New York on the ’20s scene around the city, which includes suggestions from Dandy of where to eat, drink, and do everything ’20s.
The Liberty Belle Spectacular will include a number of great performances by the city’s burlesque community and Gelber and Manning, a jazz duo famous for their Vaudevillian style and loyal following. It will be the perfect way to party like it’s 1776, maybe I’ll see you there! Tickets are $20 online (click here), or $25 at the door.
One of my favorite blogs on my blogroll is Merci New York, a blog that focuses on weddings and events in New York City. Today’s edition featured this shoot for Nonpareil Magazine an online publication, which was inspired by the TV series Mad Men. I’m a sucker for that show, it’s probably my favorite show ever on television. I’m sure I’ll be posting many of my own Mad Men inspired posts after it’s season four premiere in late July!
If you haven’t noticed, I’m a sucker for weddings and parties with a vintage flair. That’s why I loved this wedding by JL Designs. The wedding took place at Strawberry Farms in Orange County, CA. Their flowers included ranunculas, billy balls, cone flowers, privet berries, millet, and blackberry branches.
I’ve always dreamed of dressing a bridal party with matching vintage hats!
Instead of large extravagant centerpieces, the couple opted for vintage inspired vignettes. This is a great way to cut on the cost of flowers and add a little personality to any event. I also love the romance of cafe lights strung haphazardly across the ceiling. I encourage you to visit JL Designs’ blog for more photos of this wedding and others they have done. You won’t be disappointed!
