Yellow + Pink 60s Themed Wedding in Palm Springs

Get ready for a bright and bold wedding! Captured by Andy Rodriguez Photography, Lindsay and Scott were married on a gorgeous June day in an outdoor ceremony in Palm Springs, California. The couple chose a 50s/60s theme with a vibrant yellow and pink color palette. They also incorporated their love of music into the event with customized records, a cd of music and guitar pick keychains for each guest along with music themed table names. Since Lindsay and her bridesmaids are NFL cheerleaders, it was fitting that guests threw brightly colored mini pom-poms at the newlyweds as they walked down the aisle!

A few words from the bride:

Scott and I meet years ago at the YMCA. We would workout the same time everyday and smile at each other for MONTHS! Finally one day I got up the courage to say hello…That was the day I knew he was the one. No one had every made me feel the way he did. In fact, I called a friend of mine the very same day we met and told her “I think I just met my husband!” Eight years later we were married! Scott also surprised me a while back when the YMCA was getting redone and asked if he could buy the ab machine we met on. They of course gave it to him! He’s very romantic and thoughtful.

Our inspiration for our big day was 50s/60s retro glamour mixed with modern day glam. Palm Springs is one of our favorite places in the world and was also our first vacation together! We knew it was the perfect destination for our wedding! We choose our colors pink and yellow (two very popular 60s wedding colors) and from there we added our details. We are both huge music lovers so we definitely wanted to include that. We painted each guest a hot pink record with a center label with info about the band. It was used as a charger and also as a favor they could take home! We made a cd of songs that are meaningful throughout our relationship. Made a custom label with Led Zeppelin and a case with a stamp that read Scott and Lindsay Palm Springs 6.15.13. We also had custom keychains made out of  records in the shape of a guitar pick and had a “All you need is love” on them! Other little favors we had were, custom pink and yellow beer coozies, yellow sunglasses, candy, with striped bags to put them it! Also we made 12 different gold painted records one for each table. Each had a different band/musician. Some of our favorites: Prince, Elvis, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Pearl Jam, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Bob Marley, The Doors. Other accents were chevron ( my mom handmade all the chevron napkins and table runners). Daisies were also apart of our wedding. My mom and I made at the daisy ball centerpieces! Another fun detail to our wedding was the pom-poms we had our guests throw at us as we walked back down the aisle! Our photographer got some great shots of that! Special moments other then The first dances, and cutting into the cake and the toasts were our slide show that my sister and brother-in-law made for us. It was the first time we saw it and tears were flowing. It was amazing and truly was one of the highlights from the entire night! During the reception we wanted it to feel like a concert and a real party! We transitioned from dinner to dancing by toasting to my parents (who just had their 30th wedding anniversary a few days prior) with a shot for everyone who wanted on in custom shot glasses that said “Cheers to Mike and Sally 30 years!” From that point on it was a party! Everyone was dancing and having a great time! Our band was amazing! At the end of the night we kept the concert feeling going by exiting down a row of our guest with glow sticks! We! hopped in our vintage 70s red Mercedes and my dad drove us away… It was the best!

Our wedding was by far the best day of our lives. It really was perfect to us. From the location, the sunshine, making our wedding party stay with us, my brother-in-law who we chose to marry us, dancing with my daddy to Led Zep (our favorite band) kissing for the first time as a married couple, kissing my mom before leaving on our vintage Mercedes, watching everyone dance laugh and have a great time! It was truly a night to remember for everyone who was there!

Modern Yellow Warehouse Wedding on the Brooklyn Waterfront

I am so excited to feature today’s wedding for many reasons: first off, its gorgeous! Secondly, the bride has been a long time reader of Modernly Wed and used this site for inspiration… so wonderful! Captured by With Love and Embers, Meaghan and Bruce were married on an October day in a chic warehouse space in Brooklyn, New York. The couple had a laid back wedding bursting with personal details. A lovely color palette of yellow, gray and shades of green tied together the attire and decor. Be sure to read more about the day from the bride!

A few words from the bride:

Although not technically “high-school sweethearts,” having gone to the same schools for 6 years, Bruce and I officially connected at a party three weeks before our High School graduation. Despite the timing seeming completely off, Bruce and I were virtually inseparable at the party, and by the first week of that summer, we were dating. Nine years together — Bruce planned an elaborate proposal scheme over many months. Using my sister’s birthday as a cover, he asked me to marry him in my parent’s backyard, in an inflatable bouncy-house (it’s as great of a story as it sounds). It was perfect, and we couldn’t have been more excited to finally marry each other.

When I began to plan our wedding, Bruce and I made a list of our top priorities for the big day. Overall, we wanted to make sure our wedding reflected who we are as a pair, and we knew we didn’t want it to feel like a stuffy affair for our guests. We wanted everyone to have a blast, and feel relaxed and happy while celebrating with us. Bruce and I both love great food and craft beers, so the menu became one of our top priorities when looking for our venue. We also knew that we wanted to get married in a non-traditional setting, and wanted our wedding to be in Brooklyn, to truly give our guests a unique New York experience. With both of us being from New Jersey, a lot of our family and friends have grown up exploring “the city,” but that really only included Manhattan. Brooklyn was the borough I had been living in for quite some time, and it was where Bruce and I rekindled our love for each other, and New York, so we really wanted to share that with the people most important to us.

While we didn’t have a theme to the wedding itself, I relied on the use of color to create a uniformed look, and carried our palette of yellows, shades of gray, and natural green throughout, with accents of white and black. I designed a geometric pattern inspired from aluminum letters I had bought, and used it as a detail in our invitation suite. I also designed a large-scale poster which we used as our guest book. It was a really resourceful idea because not only did it allow me to use one of our professional engagement photographs, but it also became a casual piece of art after the wedding (it is now hanging in our apartment with everyone’s beautiful messages written on the glass).

We agreed on sharing a first look together with our photographers prior to our wedding ceremony. While this certainly isn’t for every bride and groom, it was one of the best decisions we made. Our first look together was the most intimate time we had with each other the whole wedding day, and it allowed us to enjoy our cocktail hour with our guests since we didn’t have to spend that time taking pictures! It was a really beautiful and genuine time between the two of us. We were so excited about marrying each other, and it was wonderful to just calm our nerves a bit and be together.

The best part of our wedding was when Bruce surprised me with a vocal performance I Will Follow You Into the Dark, by Death Cab for Cutie accompanied by my cousin’s boyfriend on the acoustic guitar. It was incredible, romantic, and magical, and there was not a single dry eye in the place! I could not believe that my husband was up there in front of all our guests totally sounding like a rock star. I will never ever forget that moment, and how full of love that room and my heart felt.

Fresh Yellow + Green Wedding in Madison, WI

I adore the bold, bright colors of this fun wedding! Captured by New Angus Studio Photography, Kelly and James were married in a beautiful garden on a sunny July day in Madison, Wisconsin. The couple, whom both work on Capital Hill, wanted to bring a fresh, modern sensibility to their midwest wedding. A lovely color palette of bright yellow and green, Kelly and James’ favorite colors, was used throughout the attire and decor. They included a nod to their first date, a bicycle ride, on the invitations and save the dates. Wisconsin Governor and Kelly’s former boss, Jim Doyle, obtained his license to marry in order to perform the ceremony for Kelly and James. Kelly’s uncle played bag pipes during the ceremony and reception. Each bridesmaid chose her own green dress and the groomsmen wore their own blue suits. Simple yellow tulip bouquets and boutonnieres completed the look. Such a fun and beautiful wedding!

A few words from the bride:

James and I met through mutual friends. We’re both active cyclists and our first date was a long ride from Washington, DC to Mount Vernon.

James and I were adamant that we did not want a cookie cutter wedding. My favorite color is yellow and his favorite color is green. So we went with those colors and wanted clean/fresh/fun/unique and I think we accomplished that. One of the items that we settled on almost immediately was having my Uncle Pat play the bagpipes in our wedding. It was such a fun treat to have him play at the ceremony and as we entered the reception, one of the many highlights!
