Inspiration for a Classic Wedding With a Modern Touch

Over the summer, I partnered together with Wedding in Houston to put together a styled photoshoot at the historic colonial-style Mansion at Colo Vista in Bastrop. We wanted to inspire couples who wanted a  classic wedding with a modern touch, and The Mansion at Colo Vista was the perfect setting for just a thing. This beautiful property sits on 700 acres, offering a breathtaking view of the Colorado River. They have modern amenities offering the perfect backdrop for the classic couple who want to add a modern touch to their ceremony.

Inspiration for a Classic Wedding With a Modern Touch

Classic weddings are not always in vogue, but adding in some modern touches, brides and grooms can truly make their wedding timeless. What are ways that couples can do this?

Using classic florals like roses and greens, but designed in modern styles. Another idea is to utilize classic types of cutlery and dining-ware with modern furniture, like tables and chairs. It’s a beautiful juxtaposition of old and new, merged together. Make it more modern by adding in a title card or menu with trending phrases and fonts.

When it comes to what to wear, it’s quite easily to mix a classic wedding look with a modern touch. There’s nothing more classic than a black tux, but a modern twist is using velvet material. Doesn’t our groom look so handsome and dapper?
