‘Rock and Roll Meets Psychedelic’ – 1970’s Groovy Wedding Inspiration

Today I have a real treat for you with this super cool 1970’s styled shoot. The shoot took place in August of this year at City Market Social House in Downtown Los Angeles. I love it when I get sent shoots that are a bit different. It is so refreshing to see different colours, styles and of course all the amazing outfits and props in this shoot. ‘The suppliers involved wanted to take a design concept from start to finish to feature new design combinations’  I just love this shoot, the warm earth tones, moving into the pinks and reds are just adorable. The funky furniture, the table scape and of course the two models, all make this shoot so cool and funky. Perfect if you are looking for some retro wedding inspiration or a move away form the ever popular green and white decor.

 This groovy 1970s’ concept is a groom and bride split between major Rock and Roll vibes and Psychedelic Femme Fatale.  Our groom’s side is gritty, masculine and 70’s fabulous, while the bride’s side it vibrant, ultimate glam and dripping of the spirit of the 70’s queen.

More about the shoot

We had a unique opportunity to do a twist on the 70s between the designers and friendors that were all aligned with the design concept. What started out as a fun content piece quickly turned into a full fledged experience because of the enthusiasm of the creative teams.

The groom’s ceremony space draws from the fashion of the iconic band Queen with ghost chairs flanking the trifecta of reclaimed wood triangle arches, setting an edgy backdrop for the nuptials. The Bride’s ceremony is all about glam! An 8 foot gilded birdcage at the end of the aisle is adorned with the plushest of ostrich feathers, resounding the feminine vibes and leaving no detail of glam behind. Reflective gold ceremony chairs are the perfect compliment for this unique and fabulous ceremony moment.

The groom’s lounge is all 70’s rock and roll with a black and grey tie-died sofa, glass skull accessories and disco balls thoughtfully strewn to keep the party vibes going all night. The bride’s lounge features a colour extravaganza from the pink channel sofa to the bright florals that cascade on the rattan backdrop. The raw edge details and vintage cane and tufted marmalade coloured bench are in perfect harmony with the rattan wingback chairs that are adorned with pink flower power.

The styled table is where the Rock and Roll collides the Femme Fatale. On the groom’s side it is an incredible duel with the edgy, deep textures of velvet, amber goblets, one-of-a-kind Rose Copper Louis dining chairs, a dark and rich palette for the place settings and a rare vintage peacock chair. On the bride’s side it is nothing but bright sophistication with white tulle, gorgeous white florals seeming to bloom right out of the table, a mix of turquoise wine glasses with blush pink goblets and a beautiful place setting of marble, blush and rattan. Let’s not forget the bride’s peacock chair thoughtfully embellished with daisies.

The pivotal moment of this union meets in the insanely creative centerpiece with the most gorgeous and artistic floral representation of the iconic Mick Jagger and Bianca wedding day aesthetic! A brown velvet suite jacket is bursting with an arrangement of bronze and copper florals, perfectly capturing the wild style of the time, while the gorgeous white wedding hat plucked straight from the Bianca fashion chronicles seems to be floating in mid air with white florals floating down onto the table. If this isn’t the most unique and gorgeous capture of the juxtaposition between the masculine and feminine 1970’s vibes, we don’t know what is!
