Carissa and Adam chose a happy color palette of pink, purple, aqua and yellow with accents of gold and glitter for their retro-music-themed bash. A mixture of mod fabrics and floral prints and more than 1,000 handcrafted hanging paper blooms brought their decidedly one-of-a-kind nuptials to life.

Lavender roses, stock and feverfew in white vases sat on floral runners at the reception.
Yellow ranunculus boutonnieres added a pop of color to the groomsmen's lapels.
The couple’s invitations included a “vinyl” CD with their favorite songs from the ’60s and ’70s. Guests were instructed to listen to them as they got ready for the event to get them in the spirit of their retro wedding.
Color blocking inspired the reception decor, with each row of tables featuring a different color scheme of pink, yellow, or purple accents. The centerpiece from the pink table had a charming mix of pink dahlias, roses and ranunculuses.
Color blocking—from the cake display to the tablescapes—was a dominant theme throughout the reception.
Instead of flowers, the bridesmaids and groomsmen held gold and teal tambourines and round, hand-painted signs that spelled out “all you need is love”—a message inspired by The Beatles song of the same name. “The signs expressed the theme of the night and acted as extra décor. The tambourines, however, were used for a jam session to ‘Hey Jude’ after I walked down the aisle,” explains Carissa.
At the ceremony, the aisle led to a giant. hand-painted floral mural by the Stationery Bakery which acted as the altar backdrop. On either side of the mural were aqua walls with cascading paper flower vines flowing over them.
The oversize bridal bouquet featured scabiosa, dahlias, feverfew, ranunculus, jasmine vine, maidenhair fern and seeded eucalyptus, all in pink hues.
Hundreds of pink and yellow paper flowers hung on vines over the aisle, adding a unique and memorable accent to the mod ceremony decor.
Carissa chose nude wedge heels with an ankle strap that would allow her to dance my heart out without feeling constrained (but still matching my theme)!.
The couple hung colorful handcrafted paper flowers wherever they could, and color-coordinated the blooms with the reception table decor.
Pink and yellow paper flowers added a charming, retro vibe to the ceremony decor.
“I wanted a unique but beautiful bohemian glam look,” Carissa says of her gold gown. She accessorized with a floral crown.
