A Simply Shabby Chic Wedding

Before we dive into this week’s Sweet Treats we had to share with you Mary and Dana’s backyard wedding. Mary actually found a vintage green tandem bike in Santa Cruz that she wanted to use as her wedding theme … and after discovering our Tandem Bike Free Printable Wedding Invitations Templates, she was all about it. We love it! She also looks pretty darn cute in our Vintage Bride Tee shirt captured by Jessica Burke Photograpy. To see more delicious photographs be sure to see the entire wedding gallery.

Fortunately for Mary, her mom owns an antique shop, Junk in the Trunk … how cute is that name? So sourcing a lot of her decor was relatively easy. The milk bottle vases were found at various flea markets that her mom frequents, and the banners were made by the bride herself and she sells for holidays in her mom’s store. How stinking cute are those personalized wine labels? Remember so many more shabby chic wedding ideas to see in the wedding gallery.
