From the vintage furniture and dinnerware to the Hogwarts-style family dining with lay-flat greenery and flowers, I wanted every detail of our wedding to be elegant but casual. I wanted our guests to feel like they were at a giant family dinner so we had trays of food brought to each table and passed around like you would at Thanksgiving. The vintage rentals were a last minute addition from Vintage Ambiance and I am so happy that we did it, they added a seamless transition between the historic industrial building and the bright pops of white, jewel-tones, and greenery.
One of my favorite parts of the wedding planning were the DIYs. Over the past few months I made the card house, alternative guest book, menus on vellum paper, acrylic signs for the table assignments, drinks, photo booth, and yard games (all using the same-ish technique shown here), and giant jenga. Similar to what I did at my bachelorette party, I also purchased a Snapchat filter from SamsSnapShop on Etsy for the wedding day, such a fun and easy detail!
As always, a giant THANK YOU to Lora Grady Photography for all of the stunning photos, Designs by Courtney for the gorgeous flowers, and Vintage Ambiance for the furniture and dinnerware. You guys were an absolute dream to work with!! Check out our wedding photos in last weeks post found here and keep an eye out for the final DIY photo booth post next week!
