ethereal disco

terryn, one of my amazing friends in los angeles, was recently featured on the blog green wedding shoes...



the inspiration for her celebration was "ethereal disco." in her words:

"It’s amazing how a couple of disparate words put together can really conjure up a distinct feeling. The feeling those words evoked for me was my theme, sort of a juxtaposition between acoustic and electric. I feel very connected to the earthy, bohemian, laid-back style of the ‘60’s, but I also really gravitate to the more vibrant energy of the 70’s. I also got really inspired by circles and the geometric designs found in nature. The colors we chose, purple and yellow, felt like they lived in that world: vibrant and electric, and yet found easily in nature."

i am madly in love with her concept - the colors, the artwork, the venue, and the vibe. you can read more about it and see all of the beautiful images here.

terryn bought and altered a vintage bob mackie dress from 1974 (my personal vintage) which i find totally stunning...



although it has been almost five years since my own wedding, the designer, event planner, and hopeless romantic in me simply LOVES to get all starry-eyed over a gorgeous occasion such as this one.

congratulations, terryn + jon!

I was going to say something about her fab dress, but then I got distracted - I can't believe it's been almost 5 years since your wedding!

It's lovely! And that Save the Date video is adorable! I think I love her bouquet the most. Those colors are just wonderful together.

The dress and the photographs are beautiful! I love seeing alternative ideas for wedding dresses - my mum's was an egg shell blue colour with a white hat - very late seventies!
