{shoot} roaring twenties

Remember the Roaring Twenties?  Most of us do not remember when the Jazz age blossomed, Flappers redefined the modern women, Art Deco was all the rage, or when Dance Clubs & Speakeasy's were in vogue.  We can take inspiration from this era and use vintage touches like nbarrett photography did in this amazing Flapper photo shoot.  Start your journey by using vintage inspired invitations like this by Southern Fried Paper.  Imagine a vintage Radio playing your favorite Jazz tunes like this one from Rent My Dust Vintage Rentals.  Add a touch of old lace, vintage family photos and ribbon wall to help your guest find their tables.  Reinvent your table-scape to include vintage linens, china, flatware, and vintage inspired menu cards.    Go soft & romantic with your flowers like this gorgeous light pink astilbe bouquet and lovely old roses boutonnieres by Bows And Arrows.  Make your dessert bar opulent with loads of beautiful desserts  and gorgeous layered cakes by Layered Bake Shop, that are as pretty as they taste.  Be sure to add a touch of the unexpected like this miniature green cabinet and use old books as risers.  Don't forget to add a vintage family keepsake for photo opportunities of the bride & groom. Take every opportunity to make your special day unique.
