Vintage Milk Glass and Moss Centerpieces

I’m smitten by the work of Christina Moreno. I’ve never seen vintage vessels, such as milk glass vases, look so modern. I’m particularly loving the milk glass and moss designs. They would make gorgeous wedding centerpieces, being a chic alternative to flowers. Decorative moss also lasts several years, which means you get to use them again to decorate your house. Check out her Etsy shop and her blog.

Sarah + Rick’s Backyard Chic Wedding, Part II

Continuing with Sarah and Rick’s intimate wedding shot by rockstar photographer Jessamyn Harris. There are so many DIY details – from planning to design, they did it all. The bold and bright color mix of orange, red and aqua and colorful paper lanterns in this outdoor setting made for a perfect summer wedding.

From the bride, Sarah:

“The idea for the favors originated when my mother lucked into a bunch of gold picture frames. With some help from friends and family, Rick and I created individual collages for every single guest at the wedding! The collages inside the picture frames then doubled as favors and place settings. The materials we used in the collages helped personalize the wedding. We used leftover red, turquoise and gold paper from our invitations, plus images from vintage Hungarian matchbook covers to reflect our time living in Budapest, and images from wedding-themed vintage jazz sheet music to reflect the love of early jazz that brought us together.”

Sarah + Rick's Intimate Backyard Chic Wedding, Part I

We have so much good stuff going on today! We will start with this beautiful backyard chic wedding, shot by Jessamyn Harris no less. She shares, “this was a college friend’s wedding. It took place in beautiful Glen Ellen, on the bride’s family friends’ estate (where she spent many summers and weekends). And it was beautiful, with oak trees, Sonoma County views, bright colors, lots of music, and family style dinner.”

From the bride, Sarah:

“My dad passed away when I was seventeen, and one of my keenest regrets is that he couldn’t walk me down the aisle. So instead my dad’s band played the processional. It was really special since they basically hadn’t played together since my dad passed away. They even had my father’s guitar on a stand, symbolizing him, with them while they played.

(The chuppah was) made by friends Judy and Don, made out of cloth that a friend brought back from India, and a Tibetan temple (to reflect Sarah’s mom’s Buddhist beliefs).”

“One of the most important parts of the day to us was the ceremony, which we wrote entirely ourselves. We’re both writers, so we knew we had to rock our vows. I have to say, Rick’s vows had the whole place in tears. Our friend Garth Silberstein acted as our officiant for the interfaith ceremony — and 12 hours later moved to Jerusalem to attend yeshiva! Our friends Neal and Jessica catered the whole event with wonderful local organic food, from local artisinal cheeses to heirloom tomatoes to pesto crusted chicken. It was the best day of my life, hand down. There was just so much love.”
