I love a couple who embraces a rainy day. This rustic/vintage backyard wedding at the bride’s parents house is proof that rain on your wedding day is nothing to fear. Also, let’s not forget the years of good luck. Lisa and Rick are way too cool to let a thing like this ruin their day. The outdoor ceremony had to be moved onto the dancefloor of the tented reception area.
This wedding is vintage meets glam with a romantic twist. There is nothing more intimate than having your nuptials at a family member’s house and then using your family heirlooms as wedding décor. Items include small oil borrowed from Groom's parents & books are from Bride's parents. They are some serious DYI moments at this wedding too- Signs through the yard made by Groom and Bride, and Groom made small crates for centerpieces. They also both made the solar lights that hung in the trees outside of the tent.
Lisa looked flawless in a vintage-style lace dress, a birdcage veil, a vintage fur stole and tons of sentimental pieces of jewelry.
As avid dancers, the reception was filled TONS of dancing and a special choreographed dance where the bride had to change into her fancy dancing shoes. The guests and their awesome dancing skills made us feel like we were watching an episode of “Dancing with the Stars” but even better.
When this awesome celebration was all said and done, guests (including us) walked away (thru a sparkler exit) with a wonderful gift from the bride and groom- a bodacious compilation CD. - We listened to it the whole way home and knew that this would not be the end of our relationship with Lisa and Rick- they are just too cool to forget! I adore this couple and have the fondest memories of their big day! This Vintage Rainy Day Wedding was the perfect kickoff to Lisa and Rick’s amazing future together.
Check out Lisa and Rick’s engagement session here with a 1933 Plymouth. I think a vintage or classic car is the best photo prop around! No matter what era the car is from, there is just something romantic about older cars that you can't get with even a modern luxury car.
