Vintage Romance Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Joyeuse Photography

I have the utmost respect for today’s bride and her dedication to celebrating all things vintage and Old World-inspired. Not only was her wedding gown a true 1950s dress, but she also sourced each of her bridesmaids’ dresses to fit with the 1950s fashion look she envisioned. Joyeuse Photography was the perfect complement to realize her aesthetic of a vintage holiday wedding!

From the bride, Jaimie: I had always envisioned my wedding feeling like a Christmas Eve service. I wanted it to be a night wedding with lots of candles, creating an environment that was warm, intimate, ethereal, and holy.

I love the intricate and high quality craftsmanship of vintage clothing, furniture, and decorations so we started searching antique malls to find details that would create that old-world, romantic feel. We also decorated with antique pieces that belonged to both sides of our grandparents’. It was so special to use pieces connected to their daily lives and legacies of life-long marriages. We wanted to use light blushes for the bridesmaids to give some color but mostly we were decorating with antique lace and muted browns, golds, and cremes. To create more light in the space and to aid the whimsical feel, we found dead tree branches at our local recycling center, connected them with wire, and put them in tree stands. Then we spray painted them golds and browns and strung Christmas lights and other decorative pieces from crafts shops like Hobby Lobby and Michaels.

We found the archways at antique shops and decorated them with lace that was my grandmother’s, as well as decorative pieces and lights from craft shops. We used lace pieces dipped in modge podge on our candle holders so they would cast intricate patterns when they glowed and found glass medicine bottles in antique shops and decorated them with muslin, ribbons, and buttons for the flower vases on the reception tables. After the ceremony, the bridal party led a candle-lit processional to the reception site. The house party passed out branches with tiny brass bells that we had attached with wire and lace so everyone could make noise celebrating!

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? I think it is very important for Brides to find ways to make their wedding extremely personal and meaningful to them. In the years to come, what will be most important is that memories of your wedding remind you of the warmth in your relationship and that you can look back and say you made choices that were consistent with what is important to who you are as a couple. I would also suggest that couples allot time to nurture and grow the relationship outside of wedding planning.

My goal is to capture beautiful moments by using a natural, artistic, and light photographic style.

Wedding Design

It seems like yesterday we were ringing in the New Year, but St. Patrick’s Day is already right around the corner! What better way to celebrate than with a styled shoot stuffed to the brim with emerald green, gold glitter, and balloons? Jasmine Nicole Photography and Shannon Qualls of Parties and Potty Training partnered up to bring us heaps of wedding inspiration to bring out the Irish in all of us:

From the photographer, Jasmine Nicole: This styled shoot was definitely a labor of love! The concept and planning was done in a little under 2 weeks with an amazing team of 10 friends and vendors. As the photographer and concept creator, I love all things glitter and knew that St. Patty’s Day coming up was the perfect opportunity to create a styled shoot all about glam. We paid particular attention to every single detail and hope that you enjoy our hard work as much as we had fun in putting in all together!

Alexis June Weddings

Hello beautiful! We’re Brandi + Ryan, the husband-wife photographers behind Alexis June Weddings. So who is Alexis June? They are the two loves of our life, our daughters, Kierstyn {whose middle name is Alexis} and Kaija {who was born in June}. Two years ago we sold everything we own to pursue our dreams and move across the country to NYC. We’ve been married for nine years and still crazy in love. Ryan speaks Norwegian. Brandi loves everything about Norway. Ryan has his MBA from Notre Dame, but loves to cook. Brandi was a journalist in the United States Air Force and eats everything Ryan cooks. Together with our girls we live in Atlanta, Georgia and cherish every day together.

Being wedding photographers is an honor and a privilege, to be a part of one of the most important moments in a someone’s life is deeply personal. Capturing a couple’s love story together makes what we do even more special. We have laughed, we have cried and we have experienced those joyous moments when its more about two individuals joining as one and less about the details. It’s about the marriage. It’s about the future. Love is a gorgeous thing and we are truly passionate about what we do. We believe everyone has a story and it should be told.

This is our story, what is yours?

North Carolina Bohemian Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Sassyfras Studios

As soon as we saw bride Kelton’s blue floral wedding dress, we knew we were in for a real treat. The rest of the images from Sassyfras Studios surely did not disappoint, with a wedding whose feel was formed loosely around inspiration from patchwork quilts. I can’t emphasize enough how crazy I am about bridesmaids wearing neutral while the bride sports a colorful wedding gown!

From the bride, Kelton: I wanted a very individual feel, something that truly reflected our two personalities. Neither Cole nor myself are what you would call “traditionalists,” so we just embraced it and followed our hearts. In fact, the only theme we followed was ‘stay true to ourselves.’ The only color scheme that recurred was ‘patchwork quilt’ (which is not a color, but the feel for the colors I wanted present).

Cole and I both have graphic design backgrounds, so we designed all the stationery for the event. We had recently bought a foreclosed home and replaced all the old windows. We used the windows for hanging floral arrangements and for mason jar chandeliers which we hung from the crossbeams in the chapel and the reception hall. We used old canning mason jars that my mom had stockpiled for our floral arrangements and candle holders, just attached some twine and shear ribbon to spruce it up a bit. I found old picture frames by the side of the road and used them for our name tags. We attached wire to the frames and hung the frames from the front porch of the reception hall and clothes pinned the names of the guests to the wire. We collected a variety of lanterns for softer lighting and lit the walkways of the property with white paper bags that we had cut out designs for a better shadow to be cast.

On the front porch we had a table with a small reclaimed wooden box, we used the remainder of the 6″x6″ natural card stock from our invitations and a collection of stamps and pens to allow guests to leave us a note or advice or just documentation to remember the day. We got local in-season flowers, whatever they had, and requested a couple buckets be primarily blue and purple. We had a class at the flower farm and they had all floral tape and pins provided and gave us some pointers on bouquet and table top arrangements, and just let us have at it. I had my bouquet made of off-white peonies, my dress was purple/blue/grey pattern, and I had my bridesmaids wear off white dresses of their choosing.

I wanted to play on the color balance, so I had the colored dress with white flowers and my bridesmaids had white dresses with the purple/blue flowers. I also really liked the idea of turning the white on the bridesmaids and my taking a color… role reversal. Being an old kids’ camp, I had spotted some old bunk bed frames on the property, we made cushions from old fabric and used them for an outdoor seating area. Finally, we designed pins in 4 different styles all saying “LOVEFEST BOONE 2012.” It was a theme in our other printed items. They were placed in a bucket next to the note writing station for guest to grab.

Neither of us live in Boone, NC but have close ties to the area, so most all of our guests were commuting from various places. With all the effort needed to pull off this event, I felt that all our guests had a strong tie to the event itself. It was a busy wedding year for our extended group of friends, but universally we continually get the friend leaning in and whispering about what a magical day it was. My overall feeling was that we really went for it… everyone really went for it, dancing, partying, laughing, crying, we did it all and it was everything I thought the day could be and so much more… it makes my heart swell just thinking back on it all.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Don’t fall for the nonsense of well-meaning family and friends, and when you feel like you’re getting overloaded, take a step back and get real with yourself, because in reality its what really matters to YOU that should be showcased. Stay true to your vision. Don’t let yourself get lost in the wants of others. It is a fine line to walk, but a very important one. The benefits of sitting back on your day knowing that its about THE LOVE you share with the person next to you is the best feeling of all.
