It’s no secret that I admire Audrey Hepburn in every way possible. So when I met Paulina, a bride who shared my adoration for Audrey and two of my favorite films, Sabrina and Roman Holiday, well, let’s just say it was a match made in heaven. Only made more perfect by their backyard garden wedding location. Paulina was actually introduced to Audrey Hepburn by her fiance, Joe, who took her on dates to watch classic movie films at Stanford University. How sweet is that? Not only a fan of classic films, they both love vintage and classic style. Therefore the wedding theme is influenced by the parties and styles from Roman Holiday and Sabrina. A mix of vintage meets classic with a romantic, garden party vibe. Follow on Facebook and instagram (@kaellalynn) this weekend for behind the scene images of this design come to life!
There are many ways to interpret The Great Gatsby for your wedding, from vintage roaring 20s to Art Deco glam. The book and original movie had a great impact on me in high school, so I’m looking forward to seeing the new novel adaptation. How about you?
Today, I wanted to provide some soft romantic Gatsby inspiration that honors the classic. Starting with a soft palette, adding glamorous pearls, jewels and gold, and introducing architectural art deco shapes rounds out this romantic Gatsby inspired wedding design.
I’m interested to hear what you think of the style in the new movie, so come back to share your thoughts on the story, fashion, style, modern music, etc. Do you find it too flashy or are you loving the over-stylized approach? What aspects of Gatsby style would you pull for your wedding design?
One of the reasons I love my job is getting to create a moment, a day, a memory that warms a person’s heart and shows them just how important they are to all those around them. So getting to do just that for my husband in celebration of his 30th Birthday was very special. And it was a surprise!
I wanted to be sure the party reflected his personality. Known for his bow ties, it was only fitting they be central to the theme. Given he is such a charming, smart and modern man, the word Dapper came to mind and everything fell into place from designing the invitations to pulling together some great vendors to create the perfect party.
Photographer, Kelly Freedman, captured the details and the photos were recently featured on entertainment and lifestyle blog, Pizzazzerie.com. After you’ve viewed the photos below, be sure to head to the featured post here for more details from the event. Scroll below for all the vendors involved.
The wedding design below will come to fruition this weekend. When bride, Cassie, told me their wedding venue reminded her of Alice in Wonderland meets Narnia, my eyes grew wide. And wider still, when she and her fiance, Pete, were completely on board and excited to have a woodsy and vintage Alice in Wonderland inspired theme.

Loving the modern take on mod right now. Did you see Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2013 runway show? As Rachel Zoe would say, “it was mage!” We’re seeing this bold, graphic pairing all over the place from fashion to interiors. It’s 60s mod and modern at the same time. I’m pretty much obsessed and dying to do a party or wedding inspired by black and white. Try incorporating it into your paper goods, fashion accessories, linens and details.
