From The Bride:
I love accessories and I am very detailed oriented. My something blue was a ring my grandmother gave me that she bought from forever 21 a small blue flower with a pearl center. Now get out your hanky my sweet grandpa gave me a old hat pin my great grandmother wore for my something old we put it through the center of my sash which was tied in a bow. The pin had a crown on it and he said it would bring me good luck. My something borrowed was my grandpa’s hanky he passed away a few years ago and we were extremely close. I tucked his hanky under my sash which I sure was glad to have during the ceremony. My necklace came from charming charlies and my hair accessories was ordered off ETSY.
My fiance is a good old country boy and getting him to wear a bow tie was not an easy task! All the boys ties were ordered from ETSY and believe it or not their attire came from JC Penny’s :).
We really wanted to do something different during the ceremony and our pastor came up with the best idea. He read a verse that stated “let no man tearth a sunder” and tied our wrists together which remained tied as we walked down the isle husband and wife :). The reception was rocking with our live band the Twang Bangers and our smores bar. Everyone’s feet were tired and belly’s full as we drove away in BJ’s grandfather’s old bell air the perfect ending to our perfect day.
Collecting antiques runs in the family and the majority of our decor came from my grandma’s antique. Trista Whitely my wedding planner really got in my head and made my vintage eclectic vision come to life. When it came to picking out photographers I knew instantly the Picsee Studio were the ones for me! They captured our wedding day flawlessly and made our retro vibe beautiful. My dress was designed by Melissa Sweet the style name is Dora. The sample I tried on was grey, torn and about 10 sizes too big but I knew that was my dress and 20 years from now I will still know that was the perfect dress!
