Inspired Creations – 60s Mod Wedding Inspiration

The week’s final Inspired Creations Contest entry before the weekend is so incredibly fun, it’s really the perfect way to kick off Friday morning. It’s bold, colorful, a little quirky and full of energy, a unique inspiration shoot with a decided 60s mod feel that was styled, art directed and photographed by Nicole Pfeiffer. She teamed up with The Saginaw Art Museum, Paper Platypus and Designs by Noelle for a result that is fiercely hip and undeniably fun.

She used the clean lines of the architecture at The Saginaw Art Museum to help shape her vision, keeping ease and accessibility in mind as she gathered assorted dinnerware, accessories and trinkets to pull the look together. For the table Nicole collected an assortment of objects in fun shapes and colors, with the occasional pop of zebra print pattern to keep it a touch unexpected.

The bride and bridesmaid wore authentic 60s-era vintage dresses and stylish accessories like colorful tights, chunky owl-shaped necklaces and beaded headbands that I just adore. The idea of sourcing things locally and reusing old, found objects is reflected throughout the shoot. I love the bold, colorful paper flower bouquets from Paper Platypus and the pretty hand lettering of Designs by Noelle carried throughout the stationery design.

I love Nicole’s focus on collecting vintage wares and repurposed objects for a funky and fresh, budget-friendly look that’s really easy and simple to recreate. A few weekends roving local flea markets, antique shops and garage sales would get the job done. And using a museum or another venue with great lines and a neutral color palette is a great foundation when planning an event. Thank you so much, Nicole, for assembling your insanely talented team to create this stunning design for the Inspired Creations Contest!
