One of My Favorite Wedding Posts!
This wedding I saw posted on 100 Layer Cake and photographed by Max Wanger has to be one of my all-time favorites! The details are incredible:
1) Holly and Billy were married at the Overbrook House in Buzzards Bay, MA. They rented the 1920’s farmhouse for the entire week and had their entire wedding party stay with them.
2) She created the invites and stationary herself, inspired by vintage champagne promos she found at the Paris flea market. Her save the dates were little notebooks where she imagined guests could write down important info (like directions) leading up to the wedding. Her invites were printed on vintage hankies… inspired by gifts that her mom has always brought to a wedding or given as a gift to friends when their daughters were married. She printed all of her fabric pieces (including guest totes) using a laser fabric printer.
3) Her bridesmaids all wore J Crew, but in different colors.
4) Holly’s dress was a handmade vintage 50’s cocktail dress she found on vintageous.com while she was in China for work. Her petticoat came from ebay, her shoes J Crew, and all of her jewelry and other accessories were vintage finds from etsy.
5) he collected different fabric throughout the year and used it to make corresponding button escort cards and napkins, in lieu of table numbers, for each table. She used the extra fabric to make cocktail napkins for the bar and the bunting flags that hung in the dance hall. Holly made the groomsmen’s ties using the same fabric.
6) Holly’s friend Ann is an amazing baker and offered to make all the cakes for the wedding herself. And by all the cakes, that means one for every table. They served and sweet and delicious centerpieces that went perfectly with the vintagey Paris feel of the tables.
7) Holly’s dad surprised her by sprucing up her childhood rowboat and making a “just married” sign for it.
8) Billy made the chalkboard and escort card board from frames he found at Goodwill.
