These wonderful photos are from Bella Umbrella, a Seattle based shop with the world's largest selection of vintage and vintage style umbrellas for sale or rent. They ship worldwide. These beauties are from the early 1900s through the 1960s. I of course am especially enamored with the pagoda umbrellas and Asian parasols. These have been featured everywhere from Vogue, Bazaar, Martha Stewart Weddings, and In Style Weddings. Critical for an outdoor wedding in a rainy city like Seattle, they add a chic, stylish, sophisticated, and Chinoiserie note to any wedding, rain or shine. The owner started the business after collecting seventy five vintage umbrellas for her wedding guests to carry at her own wedding in the event of showers. For a garden wedding, I would have my wedding party carry these instead of flowers. After the ceremony, they make a beautiful backdrop. I also love the idea of them suspended from the ceiling for decoration. This idea is cost effective, earth friendly, unique, and incredibly chic.
