I am a BIG fan of vintage elements in weddings. I love the idea behind taking something old and making it new or reusing things or taking something popular from years ago and updating it to reflect your own personality and style.
My sister took my mom’s wedding dress and had it tailored a bit so she could wear it at her rehearsal dinner. And, if you have seen my dress – you know I was all about the A-line and tea length style of the 1950s, so I had my mother-in-law make my dress from a 1950s pattern.
The other “new” thing in wedding land is using vintage cameras and film to shoot weddings. I fell in LOVE with Layer Cake Films when I started reading wedding blogs a few years ago. The 8mm videos, reminiscent of The Wonder Years opening, to me was just so cool. Another thing that seems to be popping up all over the wedding world and in the DC Metro Area as well, are Holga Cameras.
My own wedding photographer had her holga on hand the day of my wedding, and got some pretty cool-looking shots from the day!
