A Gatsby-Inspired Art Deco Wedding at the Gardens of Bammel Lane in Houston, Texas
Inspired by the Roaring Twenties, everything about Andrea Hersey’s (29 and an engineering manager) and Matthew Rowe’s (27 and a landman) wedding felt like a lavish party at the Gatsby mansion. The details of their glamorous soiree, from the decor to the stationery and even the dress code, were influenced by the art deco era, which mimicked the elegance and extravagance portrayed in 'The Great Gatsby' book and feature film. The glass conservatory at the Gardens of Bammel Lane in Houston, Texas, set the stage for the heartfelt ceremony, where Andrea walked down the aisle to a song from the Gatsby soundtrack, “Young and Beautiful” by Lana del Rey. After she and Matthew exchanged their own vows, guests partied outside while the venue was flipped for dinner, transforming the night into a chic celebration under a canopy of string lights. Andrea and Matthew decorated the space with vintage art deco pieces, including many family heirlooms and F. Scott Fitzgerald quotes. They even had a classic champagne tower and a 1920s getaway car. Their Jazz Age party had one big modern twist: Susie’s Cakes made a massive three-tier square wedding cake with a bold black and gold geometric pattern. Lauren at Bourbon and Lace Events helped Andrea and Matthew pull off all the details, and Alicia Pyne Photography was on hand to capture it all. See below for more pretty Jazz Age wedding inspiration.
