I love when brides submit their own weddings! Callie emailed me last week sharing a bit of her vintage wedding, with a 60s inspired “woodland” theme and a vintage dress to drool over. A vintage wedding dress worn by Twiggy? Yes, please! Let’s dive in to this super mod wedding fete.
From the bride, Callie:
We got married last November, in a cozy historic lodge in Berkeley, California. We fell in love with the lodge the moment we walked in. With wood floors, vaulted ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and located in the middle of the secluded Berkeley Hills, part of the East Bay National Park District, we new it would be ideal for our 1960′s woodland themed wedding. And it was indeed super cozy and intimate. We had about 75 of our closest friends and family attend an extremely short ceremony lasting just over five minutes and officiated by my husband’s favorite cousin followed by a vegetarian supper paired with delicious wines from my hometown of Santa Ynez, CA (made famous by the film Sideways), backed by 1960′s folk and rock soundtrack (think Neil Young, Love, and the Zombies) spun by my two girlfriends who I used to DJ with back in my early 20′s. We walked down the aisle to 13 by Big Star and walked away to La la la love you by the Pixies.
Her story is so good, I didn’t have the hear to edit shorter. It’s that worth it! (more…)
