Our next couple’s wedding is a rustic glam affair filled with personality and DIY’s galore.

Using a color palette of mint, rose gold and loads of SPARKLE this wedding is just too adorable for words.

More Sparkle

I have always had a LOVE for ANYTHING that sparkles, so I wanted to incorporate my love of sparkle with some of our favorite colors. We chose Mint, Rose Gold and Taupe as the color palette.

DIY Inspiration

I made almost everything for the wedding. The bouquets, the boutonnieres, the centerpieces, the backdrop for the ceremony and cake table, as well as the chalkboard signs.

A Rustic Venue

We knew The Windmill Winery was the place we wanted to share our love with everyone. It had everything we were looking for. Rustic glam. It was the perfect spot for a DIY wedding, and it couldn’t have been any more perfect, from the team that helped make this day happen, to the venue itself in how beautiful and serene it is. I truly felt like I was in a fairytale.

Wise Wedding Advice

One thing we didn’t want to spend a whole lot on was paper goods. We had an awesome friend help design our invitations and the rest my husband and I did on our own. Fun, but definitely time consuming.

Don’t stress the little things and enjoy every moment. Sometimes I wish I would’ve taken my own advice. Also, soak in every moment because the day does pass you by in the blink of an eye. Live. Laugh. And Love!

Wedding Keepsake

My favorite DIY project my husband and I did was our guest sign bench. We wanted something unique and something we could cherish every time we walk through our front door. We found a vintage headboard on Craigslist and found an old wooden bench on the side of the road!

Luckily, my husband is a smart and crafty person when it comes to building things. It came out to be one of the most amazing decor pieces for our wedding and it means so much to us.

Country Rustic Chic

The idea of country rustic was running through my mind and I wanted a venue that would fit exactly that idea. I Googled all sorts of venues and Windmill Winery just caught my eyes from the pictures of the previous weddings held there. I couldn’t have picked a more perfect venue that fit us. We fell in love instantly and knew it was the perfect place for us!

Retro Summer time Wedding Inspiration

retro wedding ideas @weddingchicks

This retro styled shoot was inspired by the nostalgia for summer nights. A slightly subdued color palette of pinks, aquas and reds are used in just about everything. From the beautiful flowers by Petals by the Shore to the blue ombre wedding cake, this shoot has the perfect retro vibe with a slight modern twist that we totally love!

Retro Vibe

With Lori Nansi’s makeup and hair, and florals by Kelly Shore, we crafted a shoot featuring tones of subdued reds, pastel aquas and pinks. Highlighting a retro vibe with a modern twist, the model’s pastel pink hair and adorable A-line Vera Wang dress fit in perfectly with the vintage amusement park.

It’s all about location!

Glen Echo was the perfect backdrop, as it happens to be the oldest amusement park in the US. It was in operation through the 1960s as such, and it retains so much of that faded vintage vibe and retro rides, signs and little treasures hidden throughout the grounds.
