We are so thrilled to see Carondelet House and Tres LA featured in Chic Vintage Brides for this sophisticated, vintage wedding!
Elizabeth explains, “I am huge fan of period dramas, so the wedding was inspired by shows/movies like Downton Abbey and Pride & Prejudice. I wanted it to feel dramatic, romantic, and vintage, so we incorporated light neutrals with pops of dark, dramatic color like deep red and navy blue. We chose details that would add an element of luxury like velvet table cloths. Carondelet House was perfect for the vibe we were going for, it was a former residence built in the 20’s and converted to an event space that kept a lot of that original detail and charm – we didn’t have to do much to make it look great.”
“In many ways, the whole vibe of the wedding started with the shoes and I bought them before we were even engaged. They were from Boden and when I saw them I knew I wanted to wear them when I got married. They felt very vintage and set the tone for everything else. Unexpectedly, I found my dress at the first store I went to. I loved it when I saw it on the rack and I loved it when I tried it on – luckily, my mom loved it too because we don’t always see eye to eye on fashion choices. I wore really simple jewellery by Marchesa because I wanted the dress to be the statement. And I had fresh flowers in my hair, which I loved! “ – Elizabeth via Chic Vintage Brides
