Retro Romance: Catherine & Benjamin in Gilbert, AZ
Catherine and Ben began dating after meeting in church, and were subsequently engaged a year and a half later. For their wedding, they chose a 1940s theme, based on the bride’s love of the music and style of that era. They brought their retro aesthetic to life through various quirky details such as having the bridal party dressed head-to-toe in traditional 1940s attire and with décor that featured repurposed hatboxes, vintage furniture and chandeliers. A soda bar served old-fashioned beverages from glass bottles and a projector played Shirley Temple films onto a screen — collectively setting the tone. They chose a color palette of pale blue and sunny yellow for the joyful feeling the shades conjured — serving as the perfect complement to an outdoor wedding.
