After months of planning and prepping, our month of vintage style weddings has come to an end all too quickly. It seemed to pass in a blur. (Does this sound a little too familiar, kind of like wedding planning?) We are so thankful for all the great wedding professionals and couples that shared their awesome planning tips, gorgeous photos and love stories. We fell in love with our couples and their beautiful weddings from glamourous to DIY; shared tips on florals, decor, cakes and more; and featured inspiration from oo-la-la boudoir to whimsical engagement shoots. We’re going to do a quick summary for those who missed any and want to catch up, or for those who want to relive it with us all over again. Sit back and enjoy everything that was vintage this month!
When it comes to planning a vintage wedding we first defined vintage as a style not a trend with the help of Shannon Reeves of Shannon Reeves Events. Then we shared tips and inspiration for florals, cakes, invites, venues, wedding dresses from Chelsea of Everthine Bridal Boutique and of course, one of my favorites, vintage decor and rentals from Found, Maggpie Vintage Rentals and One True Love Vintage Rentals.
Along the way we had a little help from our friends who created something special just for us. A vintage inspired boudoir shoot from Katherine Henry Boudoir and a sentimental DIY from Viva L’Event. We also featured beautiful styled shoots from Live View Studios (here and here), Courtney Dellafiora Photography, the gals from Viva L’Event and Tessa Marie Photography.
And of course, our favorite features, the real vintage style weddings with super sweet, sometimes funny love stories from wonderful couples. We had a classic Southern vintage wedding as sweet as pecan pie by Zoomworks Photography, the love story and vintage teal peacock wedding of Katelyn James as photographed by Jasmine Star, a rustic vintage DIY wedding so fun and bright with a giggle-worthy love story by Amanda K Photography, a sweets display using vintage drawers at a vintage garden DIY wedding from Simply Rosie Photography and of course, our sweet courthouse wedding by Ginger Diaz Photography.
Lastly, we can’t forget our always popular inspiration boards. We included some glamorous blush and bling, modern gilded gold, pink and mint shabby chic, and even a boudoir with photos from Danielle Fletcher of Boudoir on Film. My personal favorite – the classic Southern vintage wedding inspiration board featuring work from Alissa Ferullo.
Hope you had a chance to catch up with all the vintage goodness this month. We had such fun bringing you this special edition focused on a style that is here to stay. Thank you, thank YOU from the bottom of our hearts to all that contributed and to all that viewed and commented. You inspire us!
And since this month was such a hit, we’re thinking of doing it again. What style would you like to see next – garden, modern/contemporary, rustic, beach? Let us know and let the brainstorming begin. :)
