The bride, Marcella, is a teacher and the groom, Cameron, loves to read, so we personalized the decor with a really cute book and travel theme as they are big travelers as well. The couple lives in Brooklyn, and the wedding took place at the LOVELY Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Each table had a stack of vintage books (that served as a favor for each guest to take home), postcards made by the groom (who is an amateur photographer) of cities they have traveled to together with travel tips from the couple, and gorgeous soft yellow flowers. We used airmail envelope as escort cards, and the groom had vintage polaroid cameras that we used to decorate the escort card table along with a huge stack of books and a vintage globe. Each table represented a different city that the couple had traveled to together, and the postcards with the groom’s photography really livened up each table. The books were a great way to add height and visual interest inexpensively as the bride and groom collected the books at used books stores, stoop sales, and from friends over several months. The end result was an extremely personalized, visually dynamic table that did not break the bank!

    The vintage books as wedding favors – LOVE it. Can you say more about what kind of books? I would assume travel books, in keeping with the theme of the wedding.

    Love the expressions. Sometimes you can capture the funniest moments and not realize it until your processing the photos. Great!

  14. Thanks for all the kind words! This couple was SO much fun to work with (as I am sure shows in the pictures). The books were honestly a random assortment. Luckily they had a smallish wedding at 125 people, but still, collecting 125 books is no small task!
    xo, Ara
