About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I am an Art Nouveau and Art Deco enthusiast and former anthro geek with an eye for luxe materials and design.

With my background in anthropology and history, I have a love for antiquity. I love all things Victorian and Edwardian and all the luxury of the Gilded Age. I have a special fascination for the Jazz Age and old Hollywood glamour of the 1930’s intrigues me. I have been sewing since I was 8 and crafting long before that. I found my love for creating bridal couture while spending my engagement creating items for my vintage wedding in May 2011.

As I began searching online for inspirations for my wedding, I found limited information in regards to weddings and most invoked “flapper” styles, which are not art nouveau nor art deco.  So I decided to share my ideas and the creation processes for all the aspects of my wedding and hope that other DIY and Vintage brides may find this blog useful.  I welcome your comments as well as your own ideas.
