Here’s a little bit from the bride, Cait:

So the whole inspiration for the wedding started when my mom and I were in Anthropologie and saw this awesome table cloth. We started to get all these ideas from it. The colors, the patterns, the fact that it was a little retro vintage put the theme of the wedding into play. So we went with a retro vintage theme with bright bold colors. I had so many different details I wanted to have at the wedding and thinking about all of them it was overwhelming and my mom did not think it would work.. but it all worked out! I wanted to use the old vintage suit cases because they were retro and vintage and tehy were in my colors, I wanted to incorporate the old bikes, hence one of the reasons we rode off on a tandem. I wanted to use the old typewriters which were very cute but to be honest not the most effective way to get notes from people. That is the one thing I would have changed about the day. So the cake was all based off of the tablecloth. If you look at it, all of the patterns are from the tablecloth. That was really fun to design and Cakes de Fleur did an awesome job!

The food was another story. So I couldn’t decide on the food but wanted to have all my favorite foods so I decided to go with a favorites theme for the food and have “Nate’s favorites” and “Cait’s favorites.” This was the best idea in the world! Because Nate and I both had what we wanted at the wedding and it was delicious. Our caterer was so awesome and totally worked with us. I don’t know of another caterer that would have done what we did. I would recommend her to anyone and she is very well priced. So the cute menus and all of the signs were made by my friends. My menu was teryaki salmon, granola, fruit, salad and my favorite dessert “caramelitas”, nate’s menu was bratwurst, little chicken burritos, Greek pasta salad, hummus and chips and his favorite dessert “caramel brownies.” I know the menu sounds random but it was so fun to have a substantial meal at a wedding and everyone loved it!
One other thing.. besides are wedding cakes we had a brides cake and a grooms cake which also resembled our favorite things. I had a friend and a cousin make these cakes. My cake was an Alta ski resort cake because one of my favorite things to do is ski and Nate’s was golf cake because his favorite thing to do is golf. It was so fun to have that addition too, because not many people have both a brides cake, grooms cake and a wedding cake.

We had one other dessert. We had a cute little ice cream shop.. because I absolutely love ice cream! We made our shed into an ice cream shop and had friends make home made ice cream and then our wonderful caterer mades this amazing caramel toffee popcorn that we mixed with the ice cream with delicious sauces. It was all that I wanted. It looked like a cute old vintage ice cream shop!
So if you can’t tell it was the most wonderful day in the world! I loved every minute of it! I am so grateful to my mom and all the hard work and time and pain she had to go through to make this day so great! Every one was so helpful and so great about everything! I loved it!

Vintage Gold and Green Tablescape

Kristy Rice, the artist behind the hugely fabulous Momental Designs created this vintage inspired tablescape based on her hand painted stationery designed just for the shoot! I fell head over heels over the paper flower cake topper, which she also handmade. The vintage charm doesn’t stop there…the eclectic mix of vintage vases in amber and white combined with gold place settings under vintage black china are all visually tied together with a paper table runner that Kristy painted as well. So much inspiration!

Absolutely loving the stacked vintage cake stands:

From Kristy Rice of Momental Designs:

Designing a tabletop concept has always been a dream of mine but I held off on so many occasions because frankly why would a stationer design a tablescape? Finally the inspiration struck one crisp fall day last year while sketching in Jim Thorpe, PA and I knew I could hold off no longer. I wanted to bring a unique, somewhat paper-centered approach to the world of tabletop shoots… My vision included a look that was both lush and romantic with a distinctly artistic edge. The inspiration began with a simple idea for a cake stand. I collect vintage milk glass and had recently purchased a yellow glass cake stand for my renewal celebration this coming May. I started to vision and sketch a three tiered cake incorporating these cake stands with of course my Sculpted Bloom Paper Flower as a topper. Truly all other design elements grew from the cake concept!

The hand painted runner is perhaps the centerpiece of the table overall. I sat for 12 hours one afternoon drawing freehand peonies along 15 feet of rice paper. Each bold, black outlined peony sketch was then filled with watercolor in shades of gold and green. To soften the look overall and give a more used look I filled a spray bottle with brown shimmering watercolor paint and sprayed the entire surface. Daniel Lanton, our amazingly talented photographer didn’t simply record the details but he instead captured the spirit of the location and the creatives behind the look.

We were attempting to give this tabletop a spring backdrop but doing so on a beautiful early November fall day made it quite impossible. Instead we went with our instincts, completely dismantled the table and relocated to the gorgeous bridge location you see in the final shots. Yellow leaves were dripping from every surface – quite magical.

Sarah + Reed's 4th of July Wedding, Part III

What about a summer wedding with lots of activities for everyone? Sarah and Reed’s wedding had croquet, tug-of-war, and a parade from the ceremony to the reception lead by an accordian. Basically, their wedding makes everyone jealous to those who didn’t attend (like myself). Big thanks to Joel and Mary from Blue Window Creative.

Sarah and Reed are talented videographers from Grow Film, and on their wedding day they let their guests use their cameras to record the day. The result is magical – the imperfections make it so much more special. Some of their guests had never used a Super 8mm camera before!
