Gypsy Soul – Vintage-Inspired Edmonton Wedding Inspiration

What happens when you take a little bit of vintage style, throw in a touch of bohemian flair and add two creative souls with a passion for all things weddings? Well, you get the latest labour of love from myself and my good friend Lyndsay Greenwood of Lyndsay Greenwood Photography!

This shoot started as an idea floating around in Lyndsay’s head. Tired of not seeing eclectic and bohemian inspiration that matched her own style she decided that if she couldn’t find the inspiration anywhere, she would create it! She called on me to help her streamline all of her ideas and thoughts together in a cohesive design and together we pulled together a team of talented vendors to bring the vision to life.

The focal point of this particular table design was a spunky little guy named Alberto. Taking a cue from the antler trend that is popping up all over the wedding scene we decided to go one step further and dress up a skull that was gifted to Lyndsay by a relative. The ladies at Best Buds Flower Co really went above and beyond to dress him up with beautiful and unique floral elements. In addition to Alberto our table featured two floral arrangements in deep red and purple hues. Surrounding those we used single blooms in a carefully curated collection of containers from both mine and Lyndsay’s personal collections in a mix of gold, milk glass and blue glass vases.

We really wanted the whole design to feel equal parts vintage and bohemian so we utilized a lot of thrift store finds such as our gold and brass candlestick holders which housed deep burgundy tapered candles and the mixed pattern china place settings. However we did bring in some pieces from Special Event Rentals to help balance things out. Our china sat on top of a gunmetal silver coloured charger plate and was tied together with a pale blue satin napkin. As well a burlap linen was used as a base which helped the vintage lace overlay really pop.

We had such a great team of vendors on board to bring all of the other details together. Our bride Lauren wore a champagne toned lace gown with a beautiful key hole back detail from Delica Bridal. We went non-traditional for our groom Jeff and decided against wearing a jacket. Instead we styled him with suspenders and a bow tie in a deep burgundy from Derks Formals.

Kelly from Lovesky Design created a unique postcard style invitation and menu set using a bold font on a simple kraft paper. It was the perfect stationary choice to showcase amongst such a vivid colour palette!

Another one of my favourite elements was the dessert! (Who doesn’t love dessert?) Rix’s Cakes and Bakes created a simple but elegant naked cake perfect to toast a boho couple’s nuptials! Touches of greenery and sugared berries were the perfect touch to tie the design all together.

Lyndsay and I cannot thank our team of vendors enough for their contributions to this styled shoot! We hope this gave all you boho brides some great inspiration for your own big day!
