Great Gatsby

Roaring 20′s Themed Wedding: The Great Gatsby

I envisioned a glamorous 1920’s gala affair after viewing the nostalgic historic Northern Hotel in Ft. Collins.  I loved the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  Fitzgerald had an imaginative sense that captured our hearts with the story telling of lavish parties, gorgeous fashion, and grand conceptions, that pulls the romance out of all of us.  I decided I wanted to share some romance with all of you, Gatsby style!


La Vie le Gage Couture Events Wedding Planning has been drawn into the spell of romance that Fitzgerald conjures.  Designing this Gatsby inspired styled shoot filled the senses for fashion, color, and symbols in conception of style.


The 1920’s Romantic era, was a period of great change and emancipation.  The Romantic era allowing artistic freedom, experimentation, and creativity lures our senses from the start.  Art Deco’s flowing lines, dictates splendor from the start.


The staircase of this luxury historic hotel gives expected grandeur of the 1920’s.  The Northern Hotel in Ft. Collins, Colorado in its’ prime was frequented by notables like Franklin D. Roosevelt, Olivia DeHaveland, and John Wayne!


Samantha Randall of Samantha Randall Photography brought an echelon of conception with distinction, because of her attention to details.  Renee Rodriguez of Chin Chin Papers further enhanced the Art Deco theme by designing the paper suite.  The gown designer Claire Pettibone truly captures the quintessence of romance.  I was thrilled that Cate Malone of Little White Dress embraced the Gatsby theme by providing a gown, and accessories.   Elizabeth Postawa of Lavishly Couture Jewelry was ready with pure fantasy finery to take us back in time, while Samantha Koch of Lady Charm Artistry performed her expertise for memorable looks.  Marie Conrad of Emici Bridal brought bling to Deco level with the bridal and bridesmaid bouquets she designed.    Susan Dillon of Kitty Mae Millinery & Accessories provided the use of an eye catching creation!   Timiry Krieger of Dora Grace LLC allocated a dress from designer Bill Levkoff.  Christine Yocum of Art & Style Baking created enchanting tasty cookies fit for this fantasy wedding!  Rachael Teufel of Intricate Icings imaginative perception added one more layer to this illusion translating into the reality in our dreams.

“Enjoy the journey of Gatsby and Daisy, as they dazzle us once more with their famous love affair!”
