Colorful Retro Elopement Inspiration in Philadelphia

Hope Helmuth

Claire Eliza of Bridal Musings -

“A feathered mini-dress, badass bridal jumpsuit, colorful florals & retro vibes? Uh please, we are so smitten with this groovy take on elopement style photographed by Hope Helmuth. Set in the swanky Philadelphia restaurant Louie Louie, we find our vintage dream bride dressed mod in her BHLDN mini dress made fabulous in feathers. With a glamorous ballerina bun, dramatic lashes & punch-bowl colored bouquet she’s a vision in mid-century cool.

The florals & design, too, show off the retro flair of this charming space. A colorful & thoroughly modern bouquet are brought into the age thanks to a bold black ribbon (bringing your eyes to the vintage tiled floors). Stationery & signage provide even more statements of nostalgia thanks to bold typeface and contrasts of black.

From Hope Helmuth Photography: Palm trees, marble and groovy fur-galore! Our elopement inspiration took place at a trendy new French bistro in Philadelphia, PA. When I dreamt up this shoot I wanted the story to be bursting with colors and warm vibrant hues. Our photoshoot ironically fell on the day that Pantone announced coral, the color of the year.

Becky from Ram Florals made all of our psychedelic flower dreams come true! The arrangements incorporated bold colors with a dash of festive pink poinsettia. We drew a lot of inspiration from the posh interiors of Louie Louie.

I really wanted our bride to have a Brigitte Bardot, French Riviera vibe. Kelly Hursh created a nostalgic updo reminiscent of an early Jane Birkin look. This beauty inspo was completed with a soft retro lavender eye by Shimmer and Spice.
