When you hear "Vintage Wedding" what visions start to dance in your head? According to Pinterest, that might be an abundance of burlap, suitcases, babies breath, books, wood slices and doilies. Some may see rich stained antique furniture, typewriters, antique cars and sepia photos. We each picture "vintage" in our own way, and there is really no right or wrong way to see it. ALTHOUGH, I'm sorry ladies burlap and lace do not make a vintage wedding. I have heard it may times "We are having a vintage wedding", my reply "ohhhh how perfect, what style of vintage are you going for? Tell me more." client replies "you know like.....hay, burlap, lace, roses....." (Thanks pinterest! Not vintage).
Since our name is "Ever After Vintage Weddings" I thought I would share with you what our vision of "vintage" would be. When we hear "vintage" we think quality, traditions, sayings like "they just don't make things like they use to". We dream of soft textures like satin ribbons around the waist and in the hair. Not like fake shiny "satin" today, but rich soft textures with the perfect subtle sheen. We picture flowing silk dresses and detailed lace fabric. Creamy colors of aged paper, and stunning calligraphy that was common and visable in every letter. Like sitting for tea with friends in a European rose garden surrounded by silver pieces you can't help but admire. The sparkle of cut crystal, and the shine of brass. This is vintage to us. A timeless vision of family heritage, friendly charm, and romance.
When coming up with the design for this project. This is where I pulled my inspiration from. We took our vision of vintage, and mixed it with a touch of modern. With such an amazing team of vendors, it's no surprise I am so in love with how everything turned out. Thank you so very much to everyone who helped bring this shoot to life! Special thanks to my dear friend Jennifer who helped me all day putting everything together, and to Emily for having the most amazing eye for detail. I am spoiled with Emily's passion for what she does. We simply love working with The Ganeys!!
