I was just reading event designer Ariel Yve's blog & she described Sarah & Chase's wedding as "romantic vintage" which is the perfect description. Sarah & she dreamed up the most lovely, timeless day.
Every detail was perfect, down to the Melissa Sweet dress & heirloom handkerchief in Sarah's bouquet.
Camille of Modern Day Design created the stunning bouquets of pink peonies for the bridesmaids & white for Sarah. I adore Camille's website & you must go there after here! I probably go on there once a week just to enjoy the pretty.
While I was photographing the cocktail hour I just kept thinking of a 1920's garden party. Flowers EVERYWHERE, soft color, buttons, moss, chandeliers & crystals hanging from the trees to catch the afternoon sun.
Sarah spent months collecting the vintage post cards on which the guests could write a message to the bride & groom.
Each place card was held by two pearl buttons sewn together & another as a base. This is one of my favorite details from the day. It's the little things like this that bring the whole look of a wedding together.
A little after dinner treat - cookies! Some favorite family recipes were there as well as the classics. Cookies are my thing so I had to try one chocolate chip. It was delicious.
I usually don't write this much about a wedding, but I thought I just had to let you in on some of the story behind the details that made Sarah & Chase's wedding so dreamy. I have to also mention Marvin, the Ukelele player. He played Somewhere Over the Rainbow for their first dance & if you have heard the Hawaiian version of that song it's so romantic, especially live. We got to chat a bit during dinner & Marvin is a cool guy - which is not hard to understand since he lives on Maui : )
Thanks again to Sarah & Chase & their wonderful, fun families and to Ariel Yve & all the talents who contributed to this perfect day:
