Vintage Wedding prep

Sometimes your daughter surprises you. Chaiya had always, always wanted peacock feathers, navy blue, jade green and the glam of a Gatsby style wedding. Then she and Dylan went and had engagement photos taken....on two separate days.

Then She knew what she wanted...a vintage wedding with lace, feathers and lots of old fashioned charm. We ordered yards and yards of trim, created the most amazing centerpieces and clothing accompaniments. Many hours of laughter and shopping and love filled the weeks before her wedding. It was a time I will cherish forever. Her wedding prep was a lot of fun. Honestly the hardest, least fun things were that dreaded guest list and figuring out the food.   

After going back and forth a great deal on venues, we just finally made the choice of our beautiful backyard. Even though it ended up raining for a large part of the reception...everyone was a good sport about it. We transformed the backyard into magic. There was badminton, croquet, and other yard games. So much about her reception was love, family and community.
