Fabulous Retro Engagement Party by Carla Ten Eyck

It’s such a pleasure to bring you Part II of this gorgeous retro shoot from Carla Ten Eyck – the engagement party! Don’t miss Part I for all of the styled wedding goodness. All of the fabulous styling from Monday’s feature is here again, along with some stunning casual retro looks, perfect for an engagement party or rehearsal dinner! Our hep cat bride and groom celebrate their engagement with their equally groovy bridal party at a stylish picnic with the personal touch of Whim Events. I love the simple bunches of monochromatic snapdragons as the perfect pops of color to our rustic chic table! The real star here, for my money, is the vintage film equipment by James Altieri’s Vintage Cinema – add in the hula hoops, vintage board games, and s’mores by the campfire and you’ve got some good clean fun!
