Before we dive back into today’s first wedding…my sweet, sweet mom is blogging over on BACKSTAGE. Make sure to check it out if you want to meet another SMP team member! And you just might get to see a little, 5 year old Abby getting ready to do her thang!

OK, moving on. Sometimes I know that you guys will love a wedding that we feature. Sometimes, I know that I love a wedding that we feature. Today, I know that everyone will love the wedding that we are featuring. It’s just that kind of wedding…the kind that can easily capture a girl’s heart with vintage touches and perfectly thoughtful details. It was traditional and yet hugely personal. Photographed by the team at Carla Ten Eyck, it was simply lovely.

From the bride…

My Mom hand made all of our table runners, the pillows that decorated a window seat, and she also hand made ricotta cookies as favors, with a handwritten note inside the boxes. Needless to say she was busy! One of the pillows was my old baby pillow, which my mom surprised me with a couple of days before the wedding. Thanks Mom.

vintage wedding handmade touches

Myself and my Maid of Honor also hand made all of the escort cards. We dipped over 200 tags into tea, to give them that perfect vintage look. We then bought a cool vintage looking rubber stamp, stamped each tag, and then hand wrote everyone’s name. They were decorated with beautiful bows up at the top. I also hand made all of our table numbers. We took old large mason jars, tea stained small doilies, then wrote a table number on the doily, and lastly took a chandelier crystal to give it that extra bit of vintage glam. It was alot of work, but it was worth it!

Sweet tea and lemonade….we are huge fans of sweet tea and couldn’t imagine a party without it. So, we actually got one of our favorite restaurants to make it for us for our wedding. And we of course couldn’t just have regular glasses, we had it Mason jars, again to keep in with the whole vintage theme.
