Classic Vintage Bride

Pearls are, without a doubt, the uttermost symbol of bridal style. When I saw Sarah’s wedding on Justin and Mary Marantz blog, her modern use of pearls caught my eye. Several gorgeous accessories, with none of them being the traditional pearl strand necklace. Sarah is the epitome of a classic vintage bride: lace wedding dress, pearls and a timeless look that she pulled off gracefully.

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.”
