Abby is in Texas this week, so I have the pleasure of bringing you today's wedding, an eclectic, diy event full of fabulous details. Brought to us by the always amazing Blooms by Martha Andrews, this wedding is a colorful nod to 1940's vintage style. Plus, the bride is a graphic designer, sooo we get the extra treat of some really fabulous invitations, programs, and stationery. Just look at the inside of the envelope... love. I couldn't have said it better myself.

From the beautiful bride, Erica...

We wanted to have an eclectic vintage outdoor wedding. When we visited Newcastle Wedding Gardens for the first time, I just knew it was the perfect place for our wedding; the setting is one of incredible natural beauty mixed with old world charm. And I just loved the idea of having our reception in a BARN! Tory and I decided to do photos before the ceremony, and I'm so glad we did. It was really special to have that first moment between just the two of us.

My bouquet was adorned with a brooch that was my great grandmother's. We had a basket of vintage hankies that I had collected from eBay near the guestbook; an attached sign invited guests to take one for their happy tears.

The obviously-talented-bride created tons of the details herself and lucky for all of us, she has been kind enough share a lot of her diy secrets on her blog, Barnyard Chic. More coming your way in just a few.
