Have yourself a Merry Retro Christmas with this boho vintage styled wedding shoot in LaGrange, Georgia!
Shayna Chapman of S. Chapman Designs and Peyton Boles of Bob & Ginger Co. collaborated on this unique editorial using on-trend elements and vintage family heirlooms.
The result is a high-style look that is both nostalgic and modern.
Shayna explained how a casual conversation turned into creative inspiration:
Over the summer, a close friend of mine who was visiting from Texas, and I sat chatting over coffee at our local Starbucks. We had been talking for some time about collaborating on a styled shoot; however, the only problem was we knew we had a short period of time before she went back home, and we wanted the shoot to be one of a kind.
We tossed around several ideas, and in our scattered conversation, we quickly realized that both of our moms – who are avid lovers of antiques and sometimes junk – have brought out brightly colored vintage Christmas ornaments every year to decorate our families’ trees.
Although we thought of them as tacky when we were growing up, we now found ourselves creating a photo shoot based on these colorful yet boho vintage pieces. From there, the idea of “I’m Dreaming of a Boho Christmas” was born.
We thought it would be fun to feature as many cherished family items in the shoot as possible. Elements such as my great-aunt’s 1930s fur coats, vintage chairs, china plates, and our moms’ ornaments can be found amidst the other boho vintage treasures we decided to use.
We created what we thought to be the perfect boho vintage Christmas wedding. There was a lounge with one of a kind furniture pieces, a retro Serro Scotty Sportsman camper strung with colorful Christmas lights and wooden spools to set your coffee on.
The newly married couple had dinner for two on the dock with signature cocktails, more twinkle lights, a cake for two, and of course, our Christmas ornaments. Lastly, they would finish the evening reminiscing about the beautiful wedding they just had under the southern oak tree that danced with Christmas lights.
This retro winter wedding shoot was staged at Three Oaks Farm in LaGrange, Georgia. The team of contributing professionals include makeup artist Helena Bonner. Model Chyna Hearn wore a gorgeous gown from Uptown Gowns while modeling with her real-life husband Dalton. Images of this unique shoot were photographed by Kayla Duffey Photography & Christa Summers Photography.
We hope this unique Christmas boho vintage styled shoot put you in the holiday spirit! – IDY
