Real Weddings: A Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding in Cape May Courthouse, New Jersey

“He looked at her the way all women want to be looked at by a man.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

There’s something so romantic about the Gatsby era. The Roaring 20’s were known for glamour-gold and glitz were everywhere. Black and gold Art Deco patterns were everywhere. And, of course, champagne and alcohol were a huge focus for the flappers.

Kevin & Veronica’s Gatsby inspired wedding is everything. The vintage touches were everywhere.
