I just love a bride who sees a vintage cigar box and thinks: ring bearer box, I want to be her! There's more where that came from. With help from Inviting Occasion, this couple created a vintage chic wedding day that include an impressive array of perfectly mismatched flowers, stylish sweets from Lido Bakery & New York Food Company  and original invites by Minted. Luckily, there are so many more Amanda Bevington Modern Photography images to lust over in  full gallery here.

From Inviting Occasion... Kristy and Dave were married at the magical La Venta Inn in Palos Verdes Estates, California. Their day was filled with lots of vintage charm and many special DIY touches from the bride that honored family and friends. Each thoughtful detail was created with love, and LOVE most certainly surrounded this very special couple on their wedding day!

The bride found a vintage cigar box from the '20s at an antique shop, then made it into a ring bearer box. It was decorated by the best man’s wife, Anja Buehring. Vintage Pepsi and RC bottles filled with beach sand from in front of the bride and groom's house honored the bride’s grandmother and groom's mother, who had passed away, during the ceremony and symbolized the families uniting. The bride's grandmother’s rosary and a vintage brooch from her mother-in-law were placed on the bridal bouquet. Vintage skeleton keys from BHLDN were made into guests table seating assignments and hung on a small tree. Beneath the tree was a hand-made quilt from the bride's cousin, Tonya Albers, made with pictures of groom's mother and bride's grandmother. Etsy wish tags of birds kissing hung on the tree during the reception for wishes for the bride and groom. Vintage anniversary clocks donated by groom's stepfather were displayed with old family photos over the fireplace.
