Sol & German’s Eclectic Wedding

For Sol & German, who met while studying for their entrance exam to med school in Argentina, they wanted something a little out of the ordinary for their wedding day and therefore chose an eclectic mix inspired by Friday the 13th, rock n roll and a vintage 1920’s theme. “We really did not plan it all out from the beginning, pieces started coming together as we thought of colours and styles. Metallics was our colour palette – rose gold, copper, chrome, and antique gold, anything shiny!”

“Stars , flowers and metallic colours was our main focus! We DIY’ed so much, looking back it was crazy how much we did! We made a path of hand cut paper stars stuck in the grass on little sticks, we made flower crowns for the guests, had mini tambourines and tassels, all pretty glitter and metallic colors. We had copper chairs which were incredibly cool! We made our own flower chandelier out of wood and wire and hung it from our gorgeous ceremony tree.”

Sol’s favourite part of their wedding was their 1920’s crescent moon prop – and I must agree with her, it is truly phenomenal and such a wonderfully authentic vintage photo prop! “We made it with plywood and hand painted it with a friend – it was 8 feet tall, everyone loved it so much! We also had cotton candy, handmade our giant jenga and cornhole games. Everything we had was made with love and our guests seemed to enjoy it so much, it was so worth it! Best part is we got to keep everything and currently have the moon as décor in our house!”

When it came to wedding fashion the theme was rock n roll and vintage glam! “As the bride it took me a very long time to find my dream dress, shiny bling and tulle was just not cutting it! I finally found my Carol Hannah ‘Senara’ gown in NYC and it was love at first sight! Gold threaded linen, gold paint splattered veil, a gorgeous gown to say the least that totally fit my vibe! As for the groom we wanted something vintage at first but ended up finding the coolest suit that looked almost leather like, black on black with skull socks and a top hat we found at goodwill for $9 , we were so excited how we pulled his outfit together so nicely!”
