modernly vintage

After this week’s stunning Portuguese tile shoot I’ve been really inspired by architectural elements – both old and new. Today’s modernly vintage wedding inspiration board combines these two things along with an unexpected color combination.

Modern vintage wedding inspiration with an unexpected color palette |

Vintage: The lacy detailing on the wedding dress, a Tuscan villa, weathered metal chairs, and that adorably styled bar cart.

Modern: The asymmetric design of the bridal bouquet, the clean lines of the wedding invitation suite, an unexpected color palette (yellow, red, and slate), and of course, strappy architectural platform shoes!

Details to adore:
