Vintage style bride Denver- wearing charming pillbox hat.

Vintage Retro Wedding

We knew we wanted a retro/vintage vibe, so the color palette of red, turquoise and black was a given. The bride loves to play games so a thrift store search for game boards was in order… The bride envisioned towers of tissue honeycomb balls, so we put her Dad to work designing a way for the tissue balls to stack instead of hang. The wedding reception was to be small, fun and delicious so we created a menu that included:

  • smoked chicken thighs & leg
  • pulled pork sandwiches
  • potato salad
  • coleslaw
  • deviled eggs
  • strawberries & grapes
  • coconut cake
  • snickerdoodles & peanut butter cookies
  • Mama Donna’s famous caramel corn
  • cotton candy
  • bottled sodas
  • a candy buffet

The bride wanted to play games so fresh flower centerpieces would have been a waste when they were moved to play games. The solution was flowers made from paper cupcake liners. The paper flowers in thrift store milk glass vases sat on top of thrift store game boards for a very colorful table.

The open photo booth was a huge hit with all the guests both young and old. The kids at this wedding had a blast with a Twister game, the photo booth, the candy, the cotton candy.
