From Nickel Images: I am so in love with this wedding. It oozes these two people’s personalities perfectly. Lucy and Bret met swing dancing a few years ago, and ended up falling in love and eventually, getting married! What I LOVE is that Bret fully embraces vintage, and does so in a stylish, classic way. Just look at his details. Lucy found her vintage 1930’s gown at a boutique in Seattle, along with her sisters 1950’s dress and her mother’s 1930’s gown. Lucy’s veil was also made from vintage and re-purposed netting and embellishments.

For the wedding, they combined all sort of elements to create their perfect centerpieces. Lucy and her mom crochet the red doilies, the wood was from her mom’s house, the touches of cotton were from Bret’s grandparents cotton farm, and the couple even reused wine bottles as vases (they cut the tops off).

Other noteworthy details were the flags for the ceremony. The venue is located right in a flight path, so in order to embrace the airplanes that flew by (about 1 a minute), Bret and Lucy gave their guests flags to wave as they went by. Talk about a great comedic relief during the ceremony.

The Reception was full of dancing (with a live jazz band!), the cake was made by a friend, and in the end, it was a beautiful reflection of what makes these two complete.

DIY Montana Wedding

Rachel and Brian created a beautiful soiree set in the picturesque Montana mountains. Just about everything was handmade by the bride during a very short period – one month planning their wedding which even included making her own wedding dress. Captured by Rachel Nickel of Nickel Images who sent over this wedding. Brace yourself for an intensive DIY session!

From the bride, Rachel: Brian and I planned our wedding in a month! I don’t think anyone was too surprised because we are known for being sporadic and adventurous. Our vision for the wedding was to make it inspirational, meaningful and different. We love nature and are very outdoorsy so we wanted that to be a key element. We also wanted our friends and family to feel special and valued and incorporated that into our wedding. I’m a huge fan of all things vintage and Do It Yourself so I wanted that to be a key element as well.

We were vintage farm and nature inspired. Our colors were blue, peach, yellow, green and brown. Our DiY projects were almost everything. Decorations, food, invitations, flower girl dresses, bridesmaid bracelets, my wedding dress and flowers.

Advice for brides planning their wedding now: Stay true to what’s important. What was important to us was our friends and family celebrating our marriage everything else was less important. Since we planned a wedding in a month there were definitely times I was overwhelmed and stressed and times I thought things were less than perfect but then I realized all that stuff didn’t even matter. The day’s perfect even if everything else is imperfect because you are marrying the man of your dreams. What’s more perfect than that?
