From France to SoCal: A French Vintage-Chic Wedding

While the couple, Elizabeth and Benjamin live in France, they decided to celebrate their wedding in Southern California where they managed to combine his vision of chic vintage style with French colors. Prepare yourself for some seriously dreamy photos!

The wedding took place alongside the sea in Laguna Beach, California, with a French vintage-chic style and a color scheme of mainly green, ivory and mint.

The dress, with its delicate lace embroidery on the shoulders and neck and a big bow on the back completed the bride’s elegant, retro look. Her tiara and accessories had a vintage touch, highlighted with pearls and antique gold accessories. Meanwhile, she chose heels that were adorned with tiny stars in pink and gold. With respect to the bouquet, white toned flowers with subtle green foliage polished off the vintage-chic style. The groom wore a super stylish suit combining ivory colored accessories with soft blues, yellow and earth tones. He complemented her look with a boutonniere of yellow roses tied off with a turquoise ribbon.

The bridesmaids dresses were accessorized with headpieces made from fabric flowers and bouquets very similar to the bride´s, in white.

As for the decoration, one of the stars of the show were the vintage jars which were a mix of turquoise and green and different shapes and sizes. Floral arrangements in white, ivory and green stood out beautifully on the tables, where placenames and pieces of wood were also used to complete the look. To continue the theme of French vintage-chic, both the menu and the invitations had a refined vintage look in a color between turquoise and green, very similar to the color of the bridesmaids´dresses.

White wood furniture was the ideal accompaniment to the rest of the chosen color scheme. At the ceremony the vintage jars with flowers on the chairs looked very romantic with their green ribbons. A very nice touch was the décor consisting of old wedding photos of the couple´s parents leaning up against little, wooden trunks.

The white, iced wedding cake stood on a turquoise cakestand and included a special and personalized touch with the cake topper – the couple and their cat.
