Vintage Wedding by Justin and Mary, III

I knew you guys would go bananas over this wedding. The wedding itself is gorgeous…but really, with this one, it’s all about the bride. She is insanely gorgeous and will no doubt inspire a ton of you to add a little bit of vintage beauty to your wedding style! And there is no one better to have photographed her than Justin and Mary Marantz. They captured that sweet, demure fierceness that I have fallen totally in love with.

And if you love them as much as I do, make sure to vote for the Marantz’s to with Top Knots on PDN Mag’s current contest!

From the bride…

For our escort cards, I purchased various peacock, 1950s and complementary themed postcards from the Etsy sellers listed above. I then used my home printer to print the name of the guest and table number onto labels by Martha Stewart. The labels were fixed to the postcards and framed in simple frames purchased from a chain store. I asked Colleen of rockabillybebe (Etsy seller) to design the table numbers to match some of the escort cards. I loved the 1950s vibe and the contrasting colors of the card against the rest of the reception decor. She was a pleasure to work with!

The bride took a relatively simple, traditional invitation design and added a single peacock feature to each tied together with a white ribbon. SUCH an incredible way to add a bit of glamour to your paper suite without spending a fortune!

Vintage Wedding by Justin and Mary, II

Justin and Mary are the best. That’s just the only way I can think to properly introduce them. They are loved by photographers and brides alike (and bloggers, of course) so when I get to feature one of their picture perfect weddings on SMP, I always get a little more excited than usual. Which says a lot seeing that I am always “jumping for joy” or “squeeling with glee.” And this wedding just happens to be about as good as it gets.

The wedding was held at the Fisher Chapel United Methodist Church in Romance, West Virginia with a reception following at the Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences. The bride rocked an adorable tea length gown and had each of her bridesmaids wear a different peacock accent…a necklace, a headpiece and a belt. The brides headpand was inspired by Castle Bride couture by Kristin Fox Vintage and the veil was purchased on Ebay.

Vintage Wedding by Justin and Mary, I

I gave you a little sneak peek of this gorgeous wedding earlier today, but it’s time to get to the really good stuff. I first saw this wedding while shooting a From Inspiration to Reality feature with Justin and Mary Marantz. All of the vendors stood around the camera gushing and gushing and gushing about this stunning bride and her amazing sense of style. I basically begged to feature it on SMP and I am so happy that we finally get to do just that!

From Justin and Mary

The wedding was actually in Romance, WV! I know….it doesn’t get any better than that. The theme was an Audrey Hepburn/Going to the Chapel type of wedding. Rachel’s dress looked entirely different when she bought it, and she had a tailor chop about four feet off of it, take it apart and put it all back together again to make it the incredible tea length one she ended up with!

Rachel actually wore two pairs of shoes that day: some insanely fierce vintage Christian Louboutins for the ceremony and some sassy red Kate Spade’s for the reception. The jewelry for the whole shebang was from Tiffany’s. Terry also sent over a HUGE Tiffany’s amethyst ring that morning for Rachel to wear as her something new. Terry’s band had to be specially made for him because he broke his knuckle when he was younger. So they came up with this James Bond worthy hinge ring with a secret release. It’s the only one like it in the world and had to be rushed in the day before the wedding!
