As the New York days get longer and warmer, spring fever quickly turns into an ache for hot dogs, hamburgers, pickles and chips. I mean what’s better in the summer than a great picnic with family and friends? I know one thing- this awesome vintage picnic wedding does. Complete with a bride as bright and happy as the fun yellow flats that compliment her amazing tea length vintage style gown, add a gingham groom, some yellow billy balls, and some throwback games and you’ve got yourself one heck of a shindig.
Mindy, the bride, said “I didn’t want to just go to one store to supply all my needs but wanted to hand pick each item to make everything look organic.” Job well done, Mindy! Combining some great flea market finds with upcycled vintage pieces she already had like the hand tatted doilies and runners created a casual vintage feel. No cookie cutter wedding here.
This is why you have to love DIY brides. Everything about these weddings is so original and fun that feel like you were a guest. Do make sure that you check out the gallery to see the great job Peacock Photography did capturing the colorful pieces that really give you a flare for Mindy and John David’s personalities.
Congratulations Mindy and John David!

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!

Good morning, wedding lovers! Today we are featuring the ethereal wedding of Lauren and Ben, who held their nuptials on a private residence abutting a walnut orchard. A symphony of yellow, blue, and white with pops of sunflower goodness, the personal details of the day are on display. From the individually selected bridesmaid jewelry to the chalkboard table numbers, the wedding was a day of love, friends, and family with a sunny California backdrop.
I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of seeing grey as part of a wedding palette. Case in point, this stunning Southern affair, complete with DIY centerpiece decor and pillows handmade by the bride. Paired with bright yellow (one of my favorite colors EVER), it all makes for an illuminated day even in the midst of all the rain.

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of jam favors for weddings, especially those in the summer during peak berry season. I know the year is beginning to wind down, and we’re moving into apple season (someone PLEASE make apple butter favors), but berries evoke that warm feeling of bright summer days that last forever. The favors were a fabulous addition to Adalie and AJ’s reception, and they even had little pig soap favors made for the children who attended since the bride loves pigs. Adalie’s mother was instrumental in designing and acquiring the decor for the wedding day, since the bride and groom live in Washington. All of her vintage rustic touches created a homey and intimate atmosphere, highlighted by bud vases, mason jar luminaries, and chalkboard signs.

There are lots of great words for swoon – being giddy, be overcome, go gaga. I’m partial to the goofier synonyms, seeing as how I’m a rather silly person, but there is nothing ridiculous about Adalie and AJ’s beautiful Pennsylvania wedding.
The first piece I fell in love with was the bride’s dress. It’s a fabulous dress for twirling, and sets the tone for an ethereal and natural wedding. The crown of flowers in Adalie’s hair, and the vest of the groom and groomsmen. . . look at that, there I go to swoon! The sweet chapel wedding was the perfect top to the first part of the day, very intimate and full of love.
