Vintage Wedding Style

Katie, a photographer from Philadelphia and her fiance Jason were married in the Cobblestone Courtyard at Lauxmont Farms.  They love vintage items; perfect for a rustic barn reception.  So shopping they went, then brought me boxes and boxes of really old rustic crocks, blue Mason jars, teapots and cups, old drinking glasses, and tons of old, old books.  Some children's books and elementary readers, some old Bibles, one titled "The Devil In Bucks County", and "Runaway Ralph".  Each table was different and definitely made for interesting table conversations.  So we stacked them up, and filled all the vessels with flowers in lots of colors.  Katie's bouquet was white Mini Callas, Freesia and white Majolika Spray Roses with silvery-white Artemesia/Dusty Miller.  I wish I had a picture of Katie in her wedding dress.  She was a picture of modern/vintage loveliness.
Bridesmaids wore  beautiful chocolate brown satin dresses and had bouquets with Miracle Roses, Lemon Drop Roses, mini Sunflowers, Asclepias, Motso Moto Asters, Lilies, Dianthus, Artemesia, Dahlias and Athos Poms and Mini Gerbera. 
Boutts. were Craspedia (aka Billy Balls) and Kangaroo Paws

Handmade details make a wedding so personal.
One of the best handmade details I have ever seen,( of which I have a picture on my cell phone), is a cake topper made of paper.  It is  bride and groom that seriously look just like Katie and Jason, clear down to her dress and his suit!  Whoever made that could market them and make a boat-load of cash!  Truly adorable.  When I figure out my new phone I'll post it, but don't hold you're breath.  Not only am I not a photographer, I'm not a techie either.
Best of everything to a very adorable couple. Here's to Katie and Jason!
