Shades of Mustard + Teal: Retro Wedding Inspiration in Rustic Wisconsin

October 4, 2018

We’re big fans of decade-inspired weddings here at Fancier. Putting a retro twist on your wedding day plans gives you the perfect reason to try out a new look, spend the weekends discovering forgotten items and incorporate just enough vintage aesthetic to make your wedding day both familiar and fresh at the same time. Here’s what the team has to say about this adorable retro wedding inspiration shoot in rustic Wisconsin:

Our vision for this styled shoot was the perfect intersection of ’60s retro and modern whimsy. Our first order of business was finding a unique outdoor wedding venue and we quickly selected The Farm at Dover. The Farm at Dover is located in southwestern Wisconsin and is quintessentially midwestern. The property boasts a woodlands ceremony area, acres of corn fields, an immaculately restored barn, and a Victorian guest home all decorated to the nines by owners and prop designers, Tom & Juan. It was the ideal backdrop for crafting our vision for a wedding shoot that featured nostalgic details coupled with a contemporary playfulness.

The team tells us: “We went with a gown from White Dress Boutique that felt timeless with its combination of a modern silhouette coupled with classic floral lace embellishments. We elevated our gorgeous bride’s overall look with colorful yellow touches, such as her block heel pumps and embellished starburst earrings.

We just LOVE to see aesthetic elements repeated throughout wedding day details! On this hand-painted sign the team tells us: “For the tablescape, we instantly fell in love with the Mid-Century aqua Viking Wheat dish-ware found at Relics Vintage Rentals. We used the wheat elements of the dish-ware as inspiration for our signage by R Plus Ink Calligraphy.

Colorful, hand-painted greenery in a floral arrangement? Yes please! The team fills us in on the styling of this adorable 60’s tablescape: “To round out the table, we added a few eclectic retro touches using a muted,  film-like color palette. This included aqua lanterns, Mid-Century clocks, and gorgeous amber Fenton bubble glassware. Special shout out to Carly of Ever After Wisconsin for creating the gorgeously colorful Jello salad — the perfect ’60s touch! For the florals, Milwaukee Flower Co. did an amazing job of capturing the whimsical vibe with locally grown poppies, calla lilies, garden roses and hand-painted greenery.
