Alyssa + Howard's Vintage Michigan Wedding

I have a very soft spot for Michigan weddings since I got married in Detroit, so this gorgeous vintage wedding in Ann Arbor makes my heart skip a beat. If that wasn’t enough reason for me to squeal to the point where my neighbors may think I am crazy, Jessica Johnston was the photographer in charge of capturing this wedding. A little side note, she was my very own wedding photographer. So needless to say, I am very excited to share another vintage wedding shot by Jessica and Nate Johnston.

The bride did everything herself, from the wedding cake to the flowers. Alyssa found her vintage wedding dress on eBay and her t strap shoes are Channel. They got married in her parents’ backyard in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The only vendor they hired besides the photographers was the caterer, by Katherine’s Catering. I am blown away with her bouquet. If Alyssa doesn’t own a flower shop, she should definitely consider it!
