Vintage Orange Crate Art Labels

I love to wander the aisles of a library or bookstore, it seems like on every trip I always come back with something interesting. This time I found a book at the library called “Orange Crate Art – The Story of the Labels that Launched a Golden Era”, by John Salkin and Laurie Gordon, with dozens of original vintage crate label designs. These are perfect for an outdoor Summer wedding! I envision a beautiful wedding in California using these pretties:

You can find this book at most libraries and also here.

Lacee + Jason’s Monterey Wedding

This wedding shot by the uber talented Caroline Tran is full of beautiful details, with plenty of vintage inspired ideas. Lacee and Jason are from Utah, but went to Monterey, California to have their wedding. They couldn’t have picked a better location. Their venue, Old Whaling Station Adobe by the Monterey Pier is the perfect spot for a vintage garden affair. Lacee got her cute little tea length wedding dress at Beautifully Modest.

Here’s what Caroline has to say:

I want to give Free Wedding Photography to a deserving couple!


Because I know there are couples out there who have gone through amazing obstacles just to be together. There are couples who are struggling financially and could use a break. There are couples who have done so much good for others, it’s about time they had something done for them. That’s why. And I want to hear all about it.

Please email us your story & a picture or two by November 12th, 2009. Entries should be emailed to both amanda {at} and caroline {at}

The deserving couple will receive:

Unlimited wedding day coverage
20-25 faves blogged within 1 week
400-600 professional 4×6 prints
CD with 400-600 high res images & release
Online viewing for 60 days

Fine Print (please read):
Wedding must take place in 2010. If I am booked on your wedding date, and you cannot change it, then you must forfeit the prize and it will be offered to the next qualifying couple. This giveaway has no cash value. Your email must be received no later than 11:59pm PST on November 12th, 2009 in order to qualify. For weddings over 150 miles from Charlotte, North Carolina, travel fees for Caroline Ghetes and her assistant will apply (hotel & car for 2 days, and depending on distance, roundtrip airfare for 2). If you are unsure what travel costs may be, please email me at caroline(at) to acquire approximate quote. Past clients or currently booked clients do not qualify for this giveaway. Family members and friends/acquaintances of Caroline Ghetes also do not qualify. I will announce our top 2 deserving picks on November 19th, 2009, after which the public will have until November 30th, 2009 11:59pm PST to vote for their favorite deserving couple. The winning couple will be announced here on Ruffled and Caroline Ghetes’s blog on November 30th, 2009. An email will be sent to the winning couple and if multiple unsuccessful attempts have been made to reach the couple or for some reason they are unable to claim their prize, then they will forfeit their winnings to the next qualifying couple. Please do not submit your story unless you intend to follow through with the prize, should you win. In other words, don’t mess around.

Brides & Grooms may nominate themselves by submitting their story and a photo or two. Friends and family may also nominate the bride and groom of their choice, however the bride & groom should be aware of the submission. This is just to avoid them booking a different photographer during the contest period.
