I can barely contain myself.

I am INSANELY excited to share today’s real Washington, DC wedding with you. It’s one of my first wedding features, where I got to feature both the couple’s engagement session and now get to blog their AH-MAZING vintage, thrift store wedding.

You might remember Erin & Karl from their laid-back hipster engagement session at the illustrious Glen Echo Park. (If you don’t … go check it out, it was one of my favorite e-sessions to date). And, if you think their Maryland engagement session was awesome, just wait until you see what they did with their wedding, and all the truly stunning details that one of my favorite DC wedding photographers captured, Lisa Marie of Sweet Tea Photography.

Both the wedding ceremony & reception were at the historic Inn at Fredericksburg Square. It provided the perfect backdrop for the vintage theme that Erin and Karl wanted to incorporate for their wedding. Lisa herself went to High School here, and she told me she had so much fun showing her co-shooter, Michelle, around her old town. I am sure you will quickly see why…

Erin’s beautiful, simple ivory dress was from JCrew, a few seasons ago. She had ordered it used online.

Love their simple pale pink & ivory color palette for the bouquets.

Real bridesmaids in patterned dresses!!! LOVE!

LOVE this group shot!

Just wait until you see all the awesomeness that is vintage, Fredericksburg, VA. It is absolute eye-candy!

In the hours prior to their 4pm ceremony on June 5th, 2011 bride and groom, Erin and Karl separately gathered with close friends and family to prepare for their upcoming wedding.

More from Erin on her entire, vintage bridal ensemble:

My veil and lace jacket are both vintage. The veil is from an antique mall in Louisville, the Crazy Daisy, and is circa 1920s. The lace jacket is from Etsy, and slightly older, maybe around the early nineteen teens. The dress is a super simple ivory J. Crew dress, which is a few seasons old and which I ordered used online.

That’s it for Part 1 – be sure to check back on Thursday for Part 2 of Erin & Karl’s fabulous, vintage thrift store wedding thanks to Sweet Tea Photography!
