A Romantic Vintage Backyard Wedding

Three of the wedding industry’s most creative pros make a backyard floral fantasyland

When floral designer Kate Holt of Flowerwild, wedding planner Rebecca Stone of Duet Weddings, and uber-talented photographer Jessica Claire collaborated on this fantasy bridal shoot in Hollywood, CA, their talents for unique styling and creative design really sparkled!

The trio got together with the idea of creating an inspirational backyard setting for an intimate wedding with grace, subtle details, and unexpected romantic touches.

The model/bride’s vintage wedding dress was discovered by Kate at Unique Vintage, and set its handmade flower appliques, french lace, and beautiful detailing set the tone for the day.

This breathtakingly unique bridal bouquet is made of huckleberry, french anemones, and sword fern, and clasped with a fern frond brooch. It’s not symmetrical or traditional, yet it looks completely fresh and classic.

The table was dressed with depression-era glass containers in dusty rose and amber colors. There was scattered pomegranates and sugar-dusted fruit scattered within and in-between the arrangements, giving the table a decadent and romantic feeling.

  1. Delicious fried green tomatoes with cherry tomato relish and olive chow chow..Our wedding was catered by friends of ours who really got our concept we really wanted a down home feel to the food with a little carnival flair . They came up with all kinds of delicious ideas such as warm doughnut holes and hot chocolate served at the end of the evening hand-churned ice cream the guests got to churn the ice cream during the cocktail hour — it was a big hit with the kids! and a summer pie buffet..Sabrina and I made the cake topper with help from our friend Lian of — he took the illustration of Daniel and me from the and laser cut it out of basswood.
