There are so many gorgeous and well done DIY details in this vintage chic beauty photographed by Jenny DeMarco that I’m not even sure where to begin! I’m absolutely loving the soft color palette of peach, coral and light green. The florals and are beyond gorgeous, the burlap infused seating chart is super charming, but my fave might be all those lovely, antique mis-matched chairs. So, so cute!

From Jenny DeMarco…I could try to explain just how much fun this amazing couple is and how much laughter and joy was at their wedding. Erin was so passionate about having beautiful details that kept with her overall look and feel of their rustic country wedding, but also told guests things about her and Jud as a couple. So much of Erin’s inspiration came from her love for Jud and their families, including many an inside joke such as the infamously adorable owl cake, (which was a threat to her mother that she was going to have an owl themed wedding). Their love of music played a big role in their wedding inspiration and was showcased by using photos of the couples favorite artists as decorated table markers.
I loved that during the reception the DJ used a song by the artist of each table as their cue to dismiss. In addition Erin made a mixed CD of some of their very eclectic taste of favorite songs which included everything from Willy Nelson to Celine Dion. The family also used many of their own items for the decoration. All the china used at the dining table is owned by Erin and Jud’s families, and the cookies were all homemade special family recipes. Jud even bought out his 72 Chevy truck to use as the gift table. One of my favorite details with the couples initials that Jud painted when he first started dating Erin. It was nice to see that piece of their history together at the wedding.
Petal Pushers and Your Wedding Your Way did an amazing job with Erin’s color scheme which included peaches, corals, spring greens, all of which Erin found together in a colorful potholder, what a way to stumble upon your wedding colors! Erin also had custom wedding stationery created so that everything from the labels on the cookie jars to the menu’s and programs all coordinated. Overall, not only did the wedding look incredible beautiful, but the details were heartfelt and personal which made for a wonderful celebration.
From the Bride…The overall theme for the wedding was vintage chic. We used our favorite musical artists and turned them not only into tablemarkers. We used all vintage black and white or sepia photos for the table markers to keep the theme. We also used the classic rock theme to incorporate the escort cards which were also used as CD favors. One specific item that was the most meaningful to us was the ‘e + j’ in the side of the truck. Jud painted that in the when he first bought the 72 Chevy truck when we first started dating. I am very thankful that Jenny captured the picture and the way the vintage quilt is hanging over the end of the truck is beautiful. It really had a symbolic meaning to us. What I remember the most about the day of the wedding was walking down the aisle and seeing the look on Juds face. I will never forget it. He couldn’t keep his eyes off me. Even if I turned away he was still watching me. I also had a moment with my father saw me for the first time. We were taking photos and he just walked out of the door and looked at me and we both just started crying. That was also a meaningful moment that I remember.
