Vintage Travel-Themed Wedding Inspiration

Vintage Travel Wedding Inspiration by Alexandria Odekirk Photography and Dotted Events 35

While we might be seeing less and less themed weddings these days, they can be the easiest way to create a cohesive, styled look across your day, from your stationery to your florals, and your table decor to your cake.

And if there are two enduring concepts that are timeless, versatile, and so easy to do, it’s vintage-inspired and travel-themed weddings – and today’s styled shoot brings both together!

Captured by Alexandria Odekirk Photography and styled by Dotted Events, this Chicago wedding inspiration, featuring real couple Kristina & Adam, is romantic, whimsical, and oh-so-chic.

Old-timey suitcases and old maps and globes, international desserts and reclaimed crockery, both themes beautifully tie together, and I think you’ll agree, the results are pretty gorgeous…

From the Photographer

Inspired by Logan Square’s newest event venue, The Joinery, I (Alexandria Odekirk Photography) and Dotted Events decided to spearhead a photoshoot full of story, whimsy and details.

The couple we are featuring met in Panama several years ago during study abroad. They loved our concept- a wedding that expresses their love of vintage and casual-chic styles.

We added some touches of Latin American flair to showcase how they met which served for the appropriate background for our shoot!

Our location was at The Joinery Chicago in Logan Square.

The Joinery is “new” but an old warehouse that the owners had their eye on for years. It fits in perfectly with our vintage theme – everything has been repurposed!

The ceremony is full of old suitcases, and we utilized old machinery in the Joinery to display different aspects of the wedding.

For example – the couple’s bucket list (a place where family and friends write out where they should go) was placed on an old machine.  The bar is on top of an old filing system!

In our current cultural climate… I personally believe travel plays a big influence. I have always felt people who want to experience the world and other cultures are so much more accepting and open to everyone – how it should be!

Love is love.
