Justin + Baker: Art Deco Wedding at The 1940s Air Terminal Museum
Justin and Baker celebrated an art deco wedding reception at The 1940s Air Terminal Museum after returning from their New York wedding. As avid travelers and followers of fashion, these two inspirational concepts made for a resounding design. There is no other place that these two would rather be than soaking up the culture while on an adventure. Stylized fashion is something both are drawn to and art deco resonates with them as it has the distinguishing features of being simple, symmetrical, and purposeful. While it is written that art deco went out of fashion after WWII, it has resurfaced in the 21st century and continues to inspire all of us. As a wedding stylist, I consider the art deco design to be some of the most timeless pieces of art ever created. These timeless pieces don’t ever go out of style, kinda like the love of Justin and Baker. Sometimes you just meet two people and you know that love is love. There is a something far greater and words can never truly describe how special the love is. I am thrilled to have styled and planned their celebration of love.
This art deco wedding had a foundation celebrating the of hues of greens and blue with hints of platinum. The centerpieces, accenting some of their favorite flora, were stylized to gracefully shape each of its elements as a unique art piece. Less is always more in regards to the art deco style and it always leaves a dramatic statement. The lounge at the 1940s Air Terminal Museum could not have been any more perfect and was embraced by accenting the seats with colorful geometric pillows. The lounge was finished with floral interwoven on a geometric grid backdrop. To complete the look, an epic stage outfitted with Edison bulbs and chiffon created the nucleus to dance the night away. But, not before we enjoyed every last morsel from the food stations! The food was stylized to celebrate the design and even Gatsby himself would have been impressed. Some of the highlights enjoyed were the hand-sliced caprese station with sea salt display, braised brisket over garlic and herb waffles, and the roasted poblano cheese grits with bourbon barbecue sauce topped with confetti slaw. And, of course, we all saved room for the delicious wedding cake designed to resemble the building and the decadent chocolate cake to celebrate the need for exploration. Happiness all the way around!
