“Every single aspect of my wedding was so hand tailored with such love. It was completely beyond amazing. Everything from my catering, my decorating, my ceremony was all done by people that I know and love.”
We’re getting back into the swing of things for 2015 with our first real Virginia wedding feature of the year. Kelly & Tree planned a completely DIY wedding created entirely by themselves, their family, and friends. And they did it in some SERIOUS vintage styling. These bridesmaids dresses are ones to remember (though unfortunately no longer for sale on Etsy) – they are GORGEOUS. And Kelly ROCKED her vintage hair & dress. Check it out!
Each of the paper flowers I made had button centers from my mom’s button jar so each one came from a coat or sweater that some one in my family wore at some point. They are made out of scrap paper books which are comprised of several different patterns in coordinating colors so it made it really fun and easy to mix and match while still having a really cohesive feel. I went with dusty blue and yellow because I’m not really a fan of traditionally fall colors.
We wanted to use the freight shed in Yorktown because of its beautiful view of the river its also where we took our engagement photos. Its the beach we spend our summers at. It was very important to me to not spend an arm and a leg on anything I love the idea that something doesn’t have to be expensive to be beautiful. my husband is a local police officer and I am a bar manager so neither of us wanted to break the bank. I got my dress and shoes off of ebay! One of my favorite details is a vintage mirror from the 1920 that I found at the habitat for humanity store for $20 a friend of mine painted it with the blue that matched our colors but distressed it so the original gold came through and repurposed into a frame to hold my seating assignments.
