Julie + Chad

I adore this intimate wedding from photographer Jennifer Bowen. Jennifer writes about Julie and Chad’s wedding:

Julie and Chad’s wedding was whimsical, avant garde and vintage inspired. The bride coordinated the event herself, including most of the details. The flowers were feather adorned and her gown very vintage & romantic. Their ceremony took place outdoors at a Paradise Valley, AZ resort (Montelucia) and was lit completely by candlelight. Their cocktail reception was “station” inspired, so that there was a cigar bar, wine bar, gelatto bar, fondue station and more… and was also light mainly by candlelight. They had a photo booth, live dueling pianists and lots of candles. The bride organized an entry way table to greet guests that was lined with tall vases of over-flowing moss like creations, silver frames, candles and several other silver vintage centerpieces. This small storyboard does not do the full event justice, but it was a very one of a kind affair!

Chelsea + Kurt

There’s something so intimate and sweet about winter weddings. Chelsea and Kurt hit the mark with combining vintage, handmade, and recycled to create with their cozy February wedding in Illinois.

Chelsea wore her mother’s wedding gown from the 1970s. For favors, Chelsea and Kurt gave handmade jam that they picked the berries for themselves. Taking advantage of nature’s bounty, they used a fallen tree in the woods near them to use for homemade decor, including the cake stand, envelope holder and candy buffet.
