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.

Charming Venues

The wedding took place in a charming, incredibly tiny church, Mother of Sorrows. We loved the intimacy of this location. The reception would follow at Conrad Botzum Farmstead, an incredibly lovely barn from 1898 located in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Thoughtful Details

It was important to add personal touches throughout the venue so I made sure to add family pictures of parents and grandparent weddings, my own centerpieces, a cake bunting, card box, welcome sign, hand-painted table numbers and so much more.

A little goes a long way

I loved the inside of the barn from the moment I saw it and knew it would not take much decor to make it even more beautiful. Centerpieces of flowers in mason jars, lanterns, soft pink linens, burlap napkins, and a string of mason jar lights would be all this space needed.
