It’s days like today that I love my job. Like, *stupidlovemyjobohmygoodnessgracious*
This wedding today, of Haylie and Aaron, is just that good.
Before I get to the good stuff and let the bride take it away, I just want to note all the scrabble details (drool) and funky retro vibe of the couple. They made their wedding all about their interests and personalities, creating an awesome event for their guests.
From the bride: Aaron & I are both really creative and laid back, so when we got engaged, we decided that we wanted our wedding to be a reflection of our personalities. Aaron and I both love old stuff so we used a lot of our vintage items from our home to add into the décor. There were a lot of old cameras, radios, family photos, birdcages and steamer trunks. We even used a trunk to make our seating chart. We rented 2 vintage 1960’s Shasta travel trailers & set them up in the front of the barn for a place for people to gather and hang out in. We were both really excited to use Bambi, my 1960 Rambler on our drive from the church to the reception. Aaron surprised me by decorating the car with pompoms and old tin cans, it was so special – it ended up being one of my favorite parts of the day! He and our friend Francis Dawson, an amazing succulent designer and artist, used an old Vespa frame that we had and planted it with succulents and it looked unbelievable!We both love to dance. Along with our amazing dj, one of our other close friends came and spun Vinyl 60’s soul music that really got everyone dancing! Everyone was dancing all night long! Aaron’s mother is the succulent whisperer, so she made our centerpieces from pickings out of her own succulent garden, & filled some of them with knick-knacks from Aaron’s childhood. I made our table numbers from found photos of other vintage weddings and scrabble tiles. Our cake topper was a surprise from Aaron’s sister- it looked exactly like us! One of our favorite details from the wedding was the guys’ boutonnières, made by Francis Dawson. He was able to incorporate my collection of vintage skeleton keys. Each one was different and they were just the coolest thing ever! For our favors, we found these awesome vintage resin coffee cups, and planted succulents in them for our guests to take with them.
