Dramatic & Moody Vintage-Inspired Wedding

People ask me all of the time what my favorite era for design is... Is it Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Victorian? I love those in-between periods; the era just "before" Art Deco reached it's zenith, or just after the Victorians were at their most elaborate. I like the fluidity of one style merging into another. It's a subtle blends of styles that gets us out of the cliche and into the creative! When Rebecca and Ryan asked me to inject a little Art Deco style into my Art Nouveau Honeysuckle invitation design, I said, "let's give it a try!"

The Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia served as the perfect backdrop for their wedding day. They based their wedding theme around a vintage and macabre style, with the decor inspired by the 2015 film, Crimson Peak. The over-flowing florals were gushing out of book shelves, card catalogues and over the fireplace mantel. The details are moody, elegant and lovely. Check out the gallery to see a few of the details.
