A Rustic Vintage Wedding

From the moment I attended this wedding, I knew I wanted to share it with all of you. I have known this couple since the start of their relationship and could not have been more thrilled to watch them tie the knot this summer. You know when a couple’s wedding is truly about the love they have for each other and how genuinely passionate it is? That is Brook and Cara. Hands down, one of my favorite couples.

Their wedding was gorgeous. Brook and Cara wanted a rustic/vintage look and a natural feel to the wedding. They had lots of friends eager to help design their perfect day. Cara even did all the decorations herself – she is amazing. And one of the most naturally beautiful people I have ever met. There was not one dry eye when she stepped out.

One of my favorite parts?! The favors! Centerpieces were adorned with fresh peaches and guests were given darling brown paper bags to fill up with the fresh fruit to go!  The couple’s monogram was found on personalized wine bottle labels. For all who know me,I have a slight obsession with fabulous logos/monograms and this one tops the charts! The picture of their program with logo above is one is one I took at the wedding because I was already gushing all over their wedding!

Thanks for letting me share it with my readers, Brook & Cara!

    Do you know where she got her dress? I love it! I am thinking country/rustic/vintage wedding as well! My future mother-in-law will be making my dress, though. However, I would need to find it and try it on so she could see and picture it better. If you could email me back if you know where she got it I would appreciate it so much!
    Thanks! Megan

    Thank you so much! I bought the dress at Arzelles on West End. It’s by Mikaella and it was originally strapless. I hope this helps! Have fun with your wedding planning. Blessings on your day and through your marriage!
