Vintage Wedding by Justin and Mary, III
December 8, 2009

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!
