Have you been searching the internet and every wedding planning magazine you can get your hands on for the perfect 70’s inspired wedding?
If you’re looking to be inspired this shoot is nothing less than perfect for that role. Hear from Terrie Nelson at Terrie Images who put together this special styled shoot showcasing over 20 different vendors!
What was the theme for the shoot?
Our theme for the shoot was the 70’s Era and we really wanted to highlight a bold color palette that complimented that era!
Reason for choosing the venue.
We really love that The Orlo is a historic venue that would complement the 70’s era aesthetic we were going for and we especially love the blue exterior of The Orlo!
Tell us the story and inspiration behind the shoot.
When I created the mood board for this shoot, I wanted it to be colorful, funky, fun and packed with details. I wanted two color palettes, I wanted one palette that screamed the 70’s era and one that was within that color palette but much softer. We had a bold palette and a pastel palette.
We wanted to recreate an era, a 70’s Era, and pack it full of details but also make it editorial and high fashion. The entire shoot was very intentional in sharing a bridal perspective on the 70’s Era!
The venue was historical, blue, and cozy. It kind of feels like home. We knew The Orlo would be the perfect backdrop for this 70’s Era styled shoot. This shoot was colorful and dreamy!!!
We wanted the florals to be vibrant enough to compliment two color palettes, bold colors and pastel colors. The florals were ombre and asymmetrical for a fine-art look and the velvet hand-picked chairs complimented the colors on the table.
The textures were textures that would elevate the color palette. Like the table linens from Kate Ryan Event Rentals. The linen was soft velvet in colors that shaped either a soft look for our spring palette or a bold look for our summer palette.
Our bride, Emily Jo was selected for our editorial look. She is a high fashion model and we knew pairing her fierce looks with blue eyeshadow would bring out the funk that the 70’s era is known for. The makeup was a combination of soft looks and one bold look with eyeshadow to bring together the color palette!
We also knew that her overall look paired with her makeup, hair and that hand-made feather gown designed by Julia Marie Chew would be the perfect combination for a high fashion 70’s look! Every model came and represented the 70’s era very well! They were fun, vibrant, and present!
They were especially perfect in front of Tampa’s Tap Truck!! That pink was all of my pink dreams and it especially bought together our pastel color palette!! The cherry on top was the yummy charcuterie board!! It was definitely colorful and it sure looked appetizing.
The champagne wall was placed with the intention to remind you that the 70’s Era was the era of fun and happiness. The colors of the 70’s era just make you happy inside! Am I right?
Speaking of happiness…..what’s happiness without a yummy cake!!? We wanted two cakes! We knew two cakes meant twice the fun and the designs were inspired by simplicity and details! The all-white cake was created to show brides that you can have less on a cake and still create an impact!
The second cake highlighted the colors of the ’70s and the design was perfect for what we were aiming for! Every single vendor brought so much magic to this shoot and we are so grateful for their talent and their perspective on the 70’s Era!
Can you describe in detail what you provided for the shoot?
I provided a concept and design based on the 70’s era. I also provided photography services! We had an incredible team help bring this vision to life!!!
What would this look cost if a couple asked you to provide it for a wedding?
Our pricing begins at $3,000. Every experience is tailored to our couple’s personality and vision!
Hear from the vendors in the shoot:
I have the true honor of serving and bringing happiness into couple’s lives on their wedding day through my art! All Elysian Art Styling Surfaces and Backdrops are hand-painted with unique colors and textures and finished with an archival varnish to help protect the creations for years to come.
“Beloved Light” was used for this shoot and used as a backdrop for many versatile and beautiful looks including detail and cake shots. Collection creations start at $185 and if you are interested in a larger Custom Backdrop, please reach out! This is a wonderful way to bring meaningful art into your special day, and then be able to hang it in your home for years to come!
Your guests will love the unique vintage 1958 Dodge Panel Truck bar while enjoying their favorite local brews and beverages. Our dedicated and professional staff will help make your wedding day memorable. It’s all in the details. From the customized beverage menu and bar to the flowers, catering, and more.
Pre-planning tasting suggested helping us plan the perfect experience for your guests. For this event, Terrie organized an amazing event and we were amazed to see the artistry at work. From the venue to the models, the wedding attire to all of the extras, Terrie didn’t leave one detail out.
Being a part of special occasions gives us such pleasure. To be able to put a smile on the faces of our guests is what our business is all about. Our vintage truck sparks a feeling of nostalgia in its beautiful pink hue that Terrie was able to match perfectly to a wedding dress in the exact color resulting in an amazing moment captured. And how fun is it to pour pink drinks straight from the taps?
The cost to rent the tap truck depends on the size of the event and the custom menu. It can range anywhere from $500 – $3500.
I enjoyed using my creative side and lots of colors and textures with the flowers for this shoot. Bold and bright are different and fun to work with. I’m always happy to work within a couple’s budget to help make their day special and unique for them.
For this specific shoot, I created multiple different looks. Table arrangements that had a rainbow ombre effect made of two individual arrangements ($150), two large floral towers that created a floral arbor installment for the couple ($250), a bouquet for each bride (larger and more colorful $100, smaller with peach colors $75), boutonnieres ($10 each), arrangement for the front of Tap Truck ($80), extra flowers pieced into the champagne wall ($20).
A 70’s brown/Anemone wedding Cake and White/daisy wedding cake were provided for the shoot.
We understand the incredibly high standards clients expect when it comes to their meaningful occasion! We use only the finest and freshest ingredients for all of our cakes and believe every bite should taste as good as it looks!
Price started at $9 up to $12 per serving depending on the design and Sugar Art.
