From the bride & groom: Our wedding day was simply perfect and I could not have asked for a better day!  When I began planning for our special day, I knew that I wanted it to have a vintage feel with an elegant touch. Immediately, my first stop was my Aunt Janice, our decorating extraordinaire.  I gave her my vision, my colors, my random ideas that didn’t make a lot of sense, and told her to run with it… I trusted her 1,000% to make it perfect! 

We had a little over a year to prepare, so we began collecting family heirlooms and portraits to add the special touches to our day.  We had old pictures, family bibles, and other special pieces that we wanted incorporated.  Aunt Janice turned my random thoughts and MANY Pinterest snapshots into something wonderful and unforgettable. There were many nights spent making flower arrangements and decorations.  In fact, every flower (including my bouquet, bridesmaids’ bouquets, and all boutonnieres) were handmade by my Aunt Janice and Aunt Sharon!!!  They are some AWESOME ladies!  My family and I bagged all of the favors and birdseed and the delicious deserts as well.

The aim was to create my dream wedding on a budget… and we DEFINITELY accomplished that!  We truly had a great team on our side that kept things running as smoothly as possible!  Of course there were challenges, but we were determined to not let anything stand in our way.  The most memorable part of the day was the First Look! (seeing each other before the wedding) I will forever and always be grateful to J+A for suggesting it to me… despite my wishes to be super traditional!! Experiencing that moment… just the two of us… was priceless! THANKFULLY, I have the pictures to help me remember that moment (and our entire day) for the rest of our lives!

Vintage Chic Wedding Theme in Citrus

I want to send out a big hello to all of our lovely Californian couples and talented vendors! We always get to see so much amazing, chic and stylish inspiration coming from the West Coast of USA, and I’m so excited to be able to share all the gorgeousness with you here at the Love Wed Bliss blog! Speaking of chic, we’re kicking things this wedding week with the prettiest little wedding theme ever. Meghan Wiesman Photography, along with an awesome group of vendors, created this stunning vintage chic wedding theme shoot, just bursting with citrus colours and modern shabby chic style. (Australian brides may also want to take note of the wonderful way they incorporated Kangaroo Paws into the florals!). I would just love to see this stunning theme brought to life by a lovely couple out there…. hint hint!

From the photographer: Vintage Chic was the look we were going for with this stylized shoot. Bringing a modern shabby chic twist with vintage elements. We wanted to show that it’s possible to have vintage elements without going heavy on vintage and keeping it bright, fresh and beautiful. The flowers were bold and along the lines of a citrus color palette. We wanted to use flowers you wouldn’t expect – Golden Yarrow, Pincushion Protea, Kangaroo Paws, Snap Dragons and King Protea… just to name a few.

We added in small vintage book page elements as an accent. Book page flowers were also in the flower arrangements, bouquet, boutonniere, and the bride’s ring. The alter was made of long strips of fabric and lace strung between two hoopa poles. Several amazing vendors collaborated to make this shoot a success:
