Vintage, Elegant Wedding, IV
August 6, 2009

I knew you guys would adore this wedding as much as I do! It's easy love...with perfect details tucked in every corner and a bride and groom that are madly in love. Photographed by Meg and Charles at Meg Baisden Photography, the wedding is pure gorgeousness!

From the beautiful bride, Laurin...

I love getting crafty, so anything I thought I could do myself I tried.  (Not everything made it off my kitchen table, some things I tried only a mother would love!)  The style was a little vintage, a lot eclectic, and a tiny bit preppy.  The invitations were stamped with old stamps I collected from Ebay and I did the calligraphy.  We had so much fun picking stamps for each guest's invitation that felt special to that person.  (So many states, professions, hobbies, causes, music to choose from!) My mom and my godmother hand postmarked all the invitations from Rosemary Beach's adorable and tiny post office.

For the flower and table arrangements, we took full advantage of Kenny's mother's favorite pastime- antique shopping.  She loves to scour flea markets, estate sales, antique shops and Goodwill for old pieces of silver, glass containers, French jelly jars, and old linens.  They were perfect and it was fun to use things that were part of our family.  Our floral designer, Christina from Nouveau Flowers, is pure magic.  I also made the flower girl basket.


For favors,  we had a galvanized bucket full of pashminas for the female guests- which were very useful once the sun went down.  My mom and I sewed on small personalized clothing labels that had our names and our wedding date.

More in a bit!
