Kick off your heels and dust off your picnic baskets, because this wedding is a total midsummer pick-me-up. Jennifer and Josh skipped a formal reception and decided to have a vintage picnic wedding with pops of Americana throughout. The cutest part? They used picnic baskets as their centerpieces and aisle decor! Thanks Whitney Huynh for sharing this summer wedding with us.

  • Be using that idea of guests sitting on blankets for the ceremony. Very cute.

  • Beautiful wedding, beautiful pictures! Nice work, Whitney!

  • Shelly

    What a beautiful wedding! The pictures are awesome! Very very cute ideas! Great job Whitney!

  • I wish my wedding was that beautiful :D

  • Inspiration! Totally going to try this for my wedding – thank you bunches!

  • Molly

    I love the picnic theme – beautifully done. If I could just beg other brides to not release balloons though: often times these lovely party favors end up in parks or oceans as not-so-lovely garbage.

  • what a lovely blog! Beautiful vintage style picnic wedding! I love the handmade elements.

  • her dress is too too cute! and love the bridesmaid dresses too!

  • I absolutely LOVE how the guests were sitting in the grass. What a wonderful feel for the whole wedding!

  • Sarah

    Oh my goodness. We’re planning a vintage/picnic wedding ourselves – this just shows how beautiful and romantic it can be. LOVE all thr photos – what a cool couple :)

  • Picnic and garden weddings are so romantic! These call for sexy flat shoes because they won’t sink into the ground unlike stilettos. The Badgley Mischka Dasher are perfect for picnic weddings!

  • VOW Floral

    the ceremony picnic is a brilliant idea

  • Lisa

    So pretty. Love the baskets with flowers. But I must second Molly- future brides, please make sure balloons are not released. Wildlife can be injured or killed by deflated balloons. They can become trapped, or mistake it for food and then they starve to death. So sad.

  • Ali

    Her dress is absolutely gorgeous. I = jealous.

  • Valerie

    Love the idea, but not sure how to do invites for a wedding like this so that people know theyd be sitting on the ground.. I’d hate to have guests wear something that makes it tricky to sit down. I also think depending on the guest lost it light be good to have some park bench style seats for older guests.
