This sweet wedding photograph by Katie Lewis Photography was nostalgic of all sorts. There are classic blue mason jars, pretty tiffany blue bottles, baseballs, paper pinwheels, and the Chevelle. But what really struck me when I saw Natalie + Dane was how much they reminded me of what the quintessential high school Prom King + Queen should look like. When I found out that their venue was held at an old high-school-turned-lodge, all the bells and whistles went off for me. This wedding is sweet and dainty, and just reminds you of all the good ole days.
There were quite a few sweet details I love from this wedding. Natalie looked incredibly gorgeous and sweet in her simple tea-length wedding dress, her jeweled bouquet, and what girl doesn’t want a getaway car in the classic Chevelle? I also love the idea of having guests signed baseballs instead of a traditional guest book, and how cute were all the chalkboard signs?!
Happy Monday lovely crafties! We apologize for a few unexpected site issue over the last few days. And we since we that will have left you dream in pretty details we have a couple of weddings heading your way this week that will make up for it all. Do you ever dream in vintage details? I do. Regularly. So when you see Christi and Blaine’s vintage perfection, you will seriously be thinking it’s a dream come true. With all kinds of bride & groom crafted treasures like pennant banners and linens from vintage sheets and table number stands from vintage forks and the dreamy pics from Katie Lewis Photography, you won’t want to wake up from this fantastic backyard fantasy! That’s right! Put another heart (or five) next to my love for backyard for beauties!
From the bride:
I tend to stray from traditional styles and to be honest, I really like to be in control! DIYing it allowed me to put our personal style into things and make it our own; while maintaining a comfortable atmosphere for our vintage backyard wedding.
Well if this is what “control” looks like, call my next post Fifty Shades of Vintage Weddings! Christy is a serious no holds barred, DIY Bride! I’d pretty much give anything for the hankie invites she hand selected and sent to match their guest’s personalities (favorite color, etc.), and those frame stands that Blaine created out of out of vintage forks are divine! From the pinwheels to the pie stands created from vintage tea cups and plates, I am totally hooked. The only pain involved in this party had to be waiting to tear open a bag of chocolate buttons! Everything about this party is pure pleasure!
A big thanks to Katie Lewis Photography who captured and shared this fanciful fete! Thanks to Christi and Blaine for creating these little splendors, and most of all…Congratulations!
