When it comes to adding personal touches to your wedding (or any awesome party, for that matter), there are few better routes to take than handmaking some special details. Love Janet Photography and Kimberly of The Dainty Lion joined together to create this lovely shoot full of ideas perfect for any intimate fête!

vintage wedding ideas

c-handcrafted-encinitas-wedding-ideas-015The Dainty Lion: I have always been inspired by nontraditional romance. For this photo-shoot in particular, I wanted to highlight how unique elements can add character and charm to not only love but our celebration of it. Of course no bash is complete without items handcrafted from the heart, which is why I created the lace hearts, ruffles, vintage bottle labels and feather backdrop to complete the design.

  • Hello,

    Lovely post.. It was truly awesome. White bouquet of flowers are always a piece of attraction in wedding. Your wedding collection images are wonderful..

  • Beautiful decoration, such a great taste!

  • Where did you get vintage frames? They look lovely and what a genuine idea for place cards!

  • Was the cake topper handcrafted too? I wanted something like this in neon colour… something like a diner banner.
