50's Wedding Inspiration at The White Sparrow


Featured today on Wedding Chicks! This vintage wedding styled shoot was inspired by a classic 1954 Buick Skylark. Jenny McCann, our photographer, spotted the car driving one day in her neighborhood. Since then, she dreamt of a way to tie in the elegance of a wedding at the White Sparrow Barn with the fun, vintage design of the classic car. Head over to Wedding Chicks to see the full feature!


Our venue, The White Sparrow, provided an incredible blank canvas to make our own. This barn, perfectly nestled along the outskirts of Dallas, provides the feeling of a grand reception while still maintaining the integrity of a quaint, country barn. The bright, neutral space perfectly accommodated our color palette of deep pinks, blush, bold and pale yellows, and cream.


Jenny McCann captured the setting effortlessly through the use of film. From the grainy, black and white boudoir session to the bright, ethereal sunset shots, Jenny perfectly told the story of Brandon and Elizabeth, a couple who were married just before the groom was called to duty for the U.S. Military. This classic wedding shoot was the wedding shoot they never had, due to their time apart while Brandon was deployed.


We + You provided the lush, stunning floral display. The asymmetrical garland full of blooms was strung across the White Sparrow Barn doors to make a sweet ceremony setup, and their cascading bridal bouquet gave the perfect nod to the 50’s.


The stationery suite provided by Blue Eye Brown Eye gave us so many fun details to play with. From the watercolor escort cards with loose, scripty calligraphy to the custom signature drink menu, Blue Eye Brown Eye added an entirely different element of fun and color.


We were thrilled to feature a stunning vintage gown from Gossamer. The gold beading and intricate details made this dress so truly unique. This gown was perfectly accessorized with a gorgeous vintage flower-diamond ring from Trumpet & Horn.


This shoot was conceptualized on the simple thought of a classic car, but truly showcased the timeless love between our couple. Each and every detail helped to combine effortless fun with elements of luxury. I can’t thank this group of vendors enough for their amazing contributions! See the full list of vendors below:
