It’s pretty much impossible not to fall for this adorable vintage DIY wedding. Not only does it feature a beautiful bride with a stunning dress, a beautiful garden setting and wonderful vintage details, but the couple’s cute-as-pie little daughter as the sweet flower girl! (Who I must admit, almost upstages Mummy and Daddy’s special day!) But, really the icing on the cake has to be the amazing snaps by Studio Verite Photography. They re-created the perfect vintage atmosphere with nostalgic images which instantly transport you back to the early 1900’s. All-in-all this is one delightful affair which will tug at your heart strings.

Our wedding took place at the Twin Oaks Garden Estate in San Marcos, CA. The venue has a charming little old school house and fit perfectly with our vintage/diy theme. Our colors were blush, khaki, and grey. I love the look of burlap and it was used to wrap the bouquets, boutonnieres, and in our cake topper. Since Brian is from the desert we encorporated succulents in the flower arrangements.
We tried to save money as well as give our wedding a personal touch with DIY projects. We made and printed out our invitations and wrapped them with twine and flowers. I printed out pictures of our couple guests, hung them on twine in a frame, and used them for our “Sweet Love” dessert bar sign. My husband found an old window pane and we used a chalk pen to turn it into our seating chart. Our finger print tree was painted by one our good friends who was also one of the groomsmen. I also bought a lot of stuff from Etsy. To save money on flowers I ordered and assembled paper tissue balls in our colors for the ceremony gazebo. The little ring bearers newsboy caps and bow ties were ordered from Etsy as well as our cake topper.
One of my favorite memories was my sister’s maid of honor speech. She is super shy and rarely talks in front of people. (One of our cousins joked that it was the first time he’s heard her voice) I was so proud of her. Another great memory was watching our 1 year and a half daughter dancing the night away on the dance floor. She was having so much fun and made the cutest flower girl ever.. but I am biased haha. We are so happy to have these amazing pictures to remember our special day. It was perfectly us.
