A 1960s Vintage Mod, Abalone Wedding Styled Shoot by Abby Weeden | Nashville

Inspiring design & color can open up a world of ideas when you’re planning your wedding. In today’s styled shoot, photographer Abby Weeden and planners Ryder & Rhodes dressed the model in 1960s-inspired attire with a powder blue wedding dress and cat eye sunglasses to match. It’s not something we see often in weddings, but creating a scene with these off-beat elements is what makes us swoon! The vendor team threw it back to the 1960s and mixed in today’s modern style with an elegant farm table scape, geronimo balloons, and flowing details. Plus, the soft Christmas lights at nightfall make this shoot very holiday-esque! See more of the blue wedding details below along with an excerpt from Abby herself!

From the photographer + designer, Abby Weeden: This whimsical meets classical styled shoot brings together modern, vintage, and unique elements to create a beautiful palette that could merge into any season of the year.  This shoot was inspired by a magnificent 60’s gown with a skirt that is layered in shades of periwinkles and blues, reminiscent of a beautiful abalone shell. Bringing in elements of 60’s mod with Becca’s modern beehive hair-do and white glam sunglasses, we see a exquisite bridge to modern fashion and aesthetic. Vintage Abalone was an incredible collaboration of Abby Weeden Photography & Design,  The Pick Inn, Ryder & Rhoades Event Design, White Ink Calligraphy, Baked in Nashville, Foxglove & Heather, Grand Central Party Rentals, and David Alan Salon. We hope that this shoot can provide inspiration to those looking to incorporate vintage looks into an otherwise contemporary wedding.
