Who doesn’t love the sophisticated style of Art Deco? If I could do it all over again, I would have a vintage inspired wedding, harkening back to the days of the bobs, flappers and speakeasies. More importantly, the 20s were an era of luxury and glamour which makes it right up my alley. So when Celestina McCormick of Cellardoor Weddings needed stationery and a cake topper for her styled shoot, I jumped at the chance to participate.


I wanted the stationery to make a real statement with era-appropriate accents and gorgeous gold Gatsby-esque details. I incorporated a black laser cut sleeve featuring an Art Deco pattern into the invitation design. The holes in the delightful waterfall design give an enticing peak to the gold invitation inside. The same Art Deco pattern was used as the envelope liner so guests get a little teaser as they open the invitation. The retro fonts were carefully chosen and are reminiscent roaring deco days. The starbursts on the inserts add subtle style.





I carried the Art Deco motif over to the table IDs using popular musicians of the 20s with the signature black and gold. The circle table menus were cut to lay perfectly flat on the chargers.




And now my favorite part—the cake topper! I was looking to add some more glitz to the cake, which was fabulous on its own, so I created the topper out of gold glitter acrylic with the couple’s names in elegant calligraphy. I love how it pops off the white top tier.






I hope this styled shoot gives you some ideas for your Art Deco wedding and gets you inspired for your nuptials.
