We have a BEEEEAUUUTIFUL Summer wedding to feature today, courtesy of Paul Rich Studio. I love their “time” theme – executed with antique watches, clocks, and clock parts. The groom’s clock/gear/charm/wheat boutonniere can only be described as a thing of beauty. Seriously – all the vintage clock details in this wedding bring a tear to my DIY eye.
And, HOLY WEDDING PARTY, BATMAN. I counted 19 groomsmen and 13 bridesmaids – that’s bigger than some people’s entire weddings. Jessica and Jeff are obviously well loved. And judging by the smashing party they threw (that included custom made-to-order pizzas!!!), I can see why.
From the photographer, Paul Rich: “Jessica & Jeff hand-crafted and designed nearly every single detail to their wedding day. They incorporated the element of time into their wedding theme with antique clocks and clock parts used throughout the day from reception centerpieces to bouquets and boutonnieres.”
“Jeff and his father custom built a chuppah for the ceremony as well as a door frame to hang portraits of deceased loved ones. The door frame also acted as an area for the wedding party to gather behind in an open field without being seen by the guests (especially the bride). It made for a very dramatic entrance.”
“There were a tremendous amount of details throughout the wedding with the bride designating two friends to meticulously execute the vision for her day.”
Congrats Jessica and Jeff!

This summer Midwest wedding has the sweetest little details, you can’t help but smile when you’re browsing through the gallery! It’s vintage and rustic and modern all rolled together – and it totally works. I love their underlying bird theme – from the logo on the napkins to the bird nest ring “pillow” to the bird cage card holder, which was found at an antique shop and spray painted yellow to match the wedding’s color palette.
Anna is a graphic designer, so naturally she designed all of their stationery and signage. The couple also made centerpieces out of cut recycled wine bottles and napkin rings out of wired tree bark and sola flowers (made from tapioca wood).
This event was a family affair, with the bride’s dad building the arbor for the ceremony as well as the bag toss game, and several relatives pitched in to make the heart mint favors.
After the ceremony, a freak storm moved through which made for some dramatic pictures.
And you can’t have a vintage wedding without a vintage get-away car, complete with DIY fabric sign made by the bride.
Congrats Anna and Jon!

Holy detail shots, Batman! Today’s couple has tons of them to share.
Jessica and Travis had a beautiful outdoor Virginia wedding that spoke to their worldliness and compassionate nature as a couple. They utilized a travel theme for their wedding day by naming the tables after places they have traveled. The couple also donated to several organizations they support instead of creating favors for the guests to take home.

Charming and sweet is how I would describe today’s Real Wedding. Tiffani and Adam had a wonderful outdoor wedding, and built their day from the ground up. The couple created and collected all the decor for the tables, a friend catered the entire shindig, and Adam and Tiffani crafted their own wedding rings.

I officially dig the color combo of pink and green. It’s bright, spunky, and full of sass – a perfect vibe for an outdoor summer wedding. Amy and her mother created all the decor and tablescapes for the wedding, as well as pulling together all the flowers, and crocheting the (hot pink!) doilies. The groomsmen also rocked some awesome matching pink socks and ties, a trend that I love and has no sign of slowing down – a great way to infuse some whimsy into your photos.

Sam and Jake had a flash mob to “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” from Footloose, and they had a Lost-themed wedding.
I believe I can go home now.
Their wedding is just fantastic. It’s so them (they bonded over Lost the first time they met), and it’s a great interpretation of the themes of the show without being too over-the-top or cheesy, which I love. They used the Dharma stations from the show as table themes and it took off from there. All the decor was created by the couple who sourced items from thrift and craft stores.
