From the bride, Liz:

While we were dating, I introduced Josh to my favorite old black and white movies- with Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, etc- and he’s quick to admit that our many nights on the couch with popcorn fostered his love for classic films. When it came to our wedding, it seemed only natural to shoot for a very city, very old Hollywood feel. I’m sure you know that with a limited budget, that’s next to impossible! So, we kept it simple with a dessert and champagne reception at the church, and tried for that vintage vibe with some live jazz and antique touches. Knowing our financial limits and time constraints (6 month engagement!) really helped us zero in on what we could feasibly accomplish, and focus on doing that the best we could (instead of wasting time, energy and money on trying to do the impossible).

We incorporated a few vintage touches – like the cake topper, old mailbox, amber glass cake stands, and 1940′s engagement ring ads (all from ebay!). Handmade pieces included the cake and cathedral length veil (thanks, Mom!), silk bouquets with personalized cameos, and (another nod to days-gone-by) our guestbook of old family wedding photos.

“Our song” is Sparks, by Coldplay, so we finished the day with a sparkler-lit exit. A little sign by the vases of sparklers had the lyrics, “I saw sparks.” I slipped into a vintage ivory minidress (ebay again!) and birdcage veil, and we raced out to our getaway car, a 1940 Chevy Super Deluxe. In the end, our wedding didn’t feel kitschy or themed. Just sort of classic and personal, like it reflected our taste for bygone eras.

Tori + Austin’s Madly in Love Session

I can’t stop staring and swooning over this hopelessly romantic photoshoot. The fabulous Sarah Yates shot these and sent them to me as soon as they were ready and I could hardly wait to share with you. Wishing I was in Sunny SoCal right now…

Canadian Backyard Wedding

This relaxed Ontario wedding is all about style. Matthew from This Moment Forever sent me this wedding and I knew at first glance this one was so Ruffled. Their intimate affair took place at Kristin’s parents’ backyard in Ontario, Canada. Favors and most of the decor were made by Kristin, another great point such lovely DIY, budget conscious wedding. The groom, Andrew, wore jeans – an idea that I am sure many grooms out there will consider after seeing this!

A few words from Kristin’s mom about her daughter and son-in-law’s wedding day:

The entire wedding (preparation, ceremony, photo shoot, and reception) took place at Kristin’s parent’s house, located in the country north of Brampton, Ontario. The ceremony was simple; the seats were bails of straw draped in white sheets; Andrew (the groom) built a rustic fence for a backdrop; the music was performed by Kristin’s family and friends (she’s one of eleven children, and they’re all quite musical). The photo shoot took place a few meters away from the ceremony on a grassy hill, and a few more choice spots (like a crumbly old house and some broken down walls) were also on location.

The reception was in a tent at the bottom of the hill – again, just a few minutes walk from the ceremony. The tent was surrounded by game areas, so the guests could play things like horseshoes and croquet while they mingled during cocktail hour. The decorations and favours were done by Kristin and her family (like the homemade applesauce and strawberry jam) as well as all the treats on the dessert table.

Big thanks to Matt from This Moment Forever for sending this incredible wedding!
