Vintage-loving brides, this one is for you! Infused with a whimsical 50’s vibe, this vintage Valentine’s Day bridal shower theme is teeming with romance and love. When vintage china, hankies, pearls and delectable confections with pops of red are involved, well that’s just the cherry on top. This editorial is delightfully crafted by Tess Woods of Inspiration and Design Photography in North Carolina, an admitted vintage fanatic who used her own personal collection with the Ritchie Hill estate as the backdrop. It has a charming chemistry that is so unique we can’t help but be smitten with this idea for a bridal shower. Valentine’s Day certainly puts us in the mood to pour over the girly prettiness of these details, not to mention drool over the selection of Nona’s Sweets gracing the tablescape.
Vintage Valentine’s Day Bridal Shower Theme
Set at the Ritchie Hill southern estate which was designed and restored to host – yes, historic events, this enchanting venue is located a short distance from Charlotte, North Carolina. Acres of gardens surround the once family home that was restored in 2014. The star of the day wore a 50’s inspired short and sassy dress from Darlynn’s Bridal polished off with darling patent leather red pumps. As they say, never underestimate the power of red lipstick and high heels! Accenting the already gorgeous look with gloves and pearls, this bride delivers a bold statement that certainly has a wow-factor with a flawless makeup look by Vamp! and a sophisticated updo masterfully reflective of the era by Alexandra Nicole, AN Hair Studio. Playing on the nostalgic romance of the day, P.A. Reavis Designs wrapped a precious vintage handkerchief around the lovely spray of fresh floral for a distinctive bouquet tying in the theme. From the tablescape, sweetheart table and stylish bride this styled shoot is adorably packed with sugar and spice that can be replicated into one special vintage Valentine’s Day bridal shower theme. Pin away, pretties and happy day of LOVE!
