A Whimsical & Homespun Vintage Texas Wedding

submission-73

It’s international Saturday whoop!! This week we are in Austin, Texas for the beautiful wedding of Jessica and Jonathan.

Jessica and Jonathan wanted their wedding to be vintage inspired with much of their day homemade. They had so many wonderful blush toned details and decoration at their wedding reception. With personal touches such as Jessica’s late grandmother’s brooches in her bouquet and Jonathan’s great grandmother’s quilt as decoration. Amazing.

Whimsical, romantic and charming.

Thanks to Caroline + Ben Photography for sharing their images with us today.

The vision… I knew I wanted a vintage theme from the start. I have always loved vintage shopping and I thought it would be so much fun! My favorite part of the wedding process was searching for all of the vintage mirrored trays used in the center pieces, and other details used for decor. One of my favorite finds was the rusted heart chair. We also used vintage and antique pieces from our families to add a personal and sentimental touch to the wedding. I had my late grandmother’s brooches in my brooch bouquet, and we used my husband’s great grandmother’s quilt as decoration.

What is your favorite photograph from the wedding and why? Oh, it is so hard to pick just one! They are all amazing and so fun to look at. But, one of my favorites is number 71 in the pre ceremony album. It was taken right after our first look and was not posed. I think it shows how happy we are and how excited we are about what was about to happen.

The Dress & Accessories…  The dress was by Avy & Aster from Unbridaled. The veil was also from Unbridaled. The shoes were Bridal by Butter that were bought online. The jewelry was bought at Eliza Page. My hair and makeup was done by friends.

The flowers… I made the brooch bouquets that the Maid of Honor and myself carried. The rest of the flowers were bought wholesale and we arranged them ourselves.

Groom’s attire… The groom bought his suit at Joseph A Bank.

Beautiful bridesmaids… The Maid of Honor’s dress was bought at Old Navy on clearance for $10. Woop!

Event planner… Leah with Austin Elite Staffing for day of coordinator.

The details & decor… I made the invitations myself. The save the dates were bought online from Wedding Paper Divas. The favors were home made by the groom’s mother and grandmother. Linens were from Premiere Party Central. The vintage furniture was from Loot Vintage. I added twine, burlap, and vintage lace to the mason jars that were used in the center pieces. I also made the hanging mason jars with tea lights that hung from the trees during the ceremony.

Catering… Salt Lick Barbeque.

The Cake… The cake was by Simon Lee Bakery. The macaroons and jordan almonds were from La Patisserie.

The ceremony… I loved that our officiant used love letters my husband and I wrote to each other to make the ceremony more meaningful.

Memorable moments… I don’t think I could pick just one moment that made it such a great day. It was all of the little moments that added up to such an amazing wedding. Walking down the aisle with my mom and dad to meet my husband is probably at the top of the list though.

Advice for other couples… My advice would be to not stress too much over the little details. When the day comes, you don’t notice if something isn’t exactly how you pictured it. Also, to make sure you take the time to enjoy the day because it goes by so fast.

Oh such a perfect day and i adore a first look. Thanks so much to Jessica and Jonathan for sharing their gorgeous wedding with us today XOXO Lou

  • Wow! You’ve given me such hope. I’m putting a ring on it and my love and I are marrying next year. Her father’s deceased, so I’ve decided to foot the bill. I’m thinking DIY and this is the best example I’ve come across so far. Are those flowers tissue paper? You two make a wonderful couple by the way. I hope to post our wedding photos on this blog next year. Perhaps our DIY will inspire the next couple’s!
