Texas Wedding with Modern Vintage Style, II
February 3, 2010

It's Chantale, once again from La Belle Bride, and I'm back with some more pictures of this eclectic wedding that combines eco-chic, vintage and a touch of modern, all rolled up into one sleek and charming wedding.

Style-wise this wedding is truly a treat, isn't it?  For me, yellow and gray are two colors that look fabulous together.  The color scheme seems to flow perfectly throughout the day from the flowers to the seating cards, right down to the tablescape.  All this and I haven’t even gotten to that darn cute bike yet.  I’m all about props for engagement/wedding pictures and I am just lovin’ that adorable bike in their photos.  It’s almost too much cuteness for me to take today.  I gotta go lie down.

More from our gorgeous bride, Baovy:

I really enjoyed how resourceful I was in planning DIY projects. I had bought gray fabric and asked one of my bridesmaid’s moms to sew table runners. With the leftover fabric, my bridesmaids and I made chair sashes and also covered an old memo board to display escort cards. The escort cards were handmade from extra invitations printed on recycled paper. We diligently cut and glued the surplus invitations and reply cards to make cute escort cards. Pinning them to yellow ribbon with mini clothespins was the final touch.

We donated to the Lance Armstrong Live Strong Foundation in lieu of traditional wedding favors. This was especially close to my heart, as I have had many family members pass away to cancer, including my beloved mother.

Above all, we wanted our wedding to be a fun and special celebration with our friends and family. Despite getting married on one of the coldest days known to Texas, our guests were warm with the love and laughter that filled our beautiful wedding. Vu and I could not have been happier with how everything turned out!
