That 70s Wedding

I'm not one of those people who tries to emulate a certain look from an era like 50s' rockabilly or 60s' mod. I like vintage and retro furniture, clothes, music but I'm not tied down to one decade. Lately, however, I have been feeling a little boho (some people would say I have always been this way) and I've been channeling a lot Jane Birkin and a little Carly Simon. The wedding is kind of going in that direction too. Sometimes I wish I could just really GO there.

Simple, long-sleeved gown (that I make myself, obv), big hat (my mother totally wore a HUGE-ass hat to her 1977 wedding).

Groom-style straight from the closet. And areception small enough it can fit inside the house.
(PS: How amazing is that wallpaper!)


Intimate, sunset ceremony.


And a sweet, sweet ride.

I love the sunset in that photo. It gives it such a warm, happy glow!

i would LOVE a 70s feel wedding but i'm with you, i don't think i could fully commit. these pictures remind me of my fiance's parent's wedding. they got married in a backyard - and the groom was wearing a blue tux and earth shoes. amazing.
