• {Real Wedding} Amanda & JR: Simple & Classic Vintage DIY Wedding

    Sometimes it is refreshing to see a simple, classic-with-a-touch-of-vintage wedding.  Today is one of those times.  There isn’t an abundance of “stuff” or of DIY projects, although the bride did DIY the favors and florals.  Sweet and simple is on the agenda for today!  Enjoy.

    A little bit from the bride:
    I wanted to keep things simple and classic and a touch vintage, so details like a bird cage veil, a magnolia arch and a collection of found bottles & vases all got me really excited as I started to pull things together. My dress had the slightest tinge of pink to it so I played off that with flowers in a range on peaches, pinks and olive greens. We ended up finding all of the flowers we used to decorate at Whole Foods, the grocery store and then a small local florist. And my mom was a huge part of bringing it all together. When she got into town, she ran countless errands with me – tracking down just the right flowers, scouring the city for the perfect hair accessories to hold down my veil, and gathering countless bottles. It all came together surprisingly smoothly, though.

    The combination of the gorgeous photos by Moss & Isaac and the lovely venue (Parkside Mansion) showcase the bride’s vision perfectly I think!  What do you think?  Is simple and classic your style?

       If it is possible to crush on a company then I've had a major crush on @passivejuicemotel for a while. They mix retro and modern references in such a clever way that I find myself thinking that whoever is behind this brilliance and I should be besties. Besides their Snoop and Ice Cube tees that Calvin has sported in the past, these are some of my current favorites. And how good is that John Snow tee for the holidays!?  Not sponsored, just crushin'
       Everything is awesome! Unless you're Calvin apparently... #fallbreak #bucketlistbeforebabythree #fredrickfamilyxmas #backtomybelabumbum #legoland #30weeks #fredrickpartyoffive
