This week’s wedding has too many darling vintage details, I don’t even know where to start! I will just let the adorable bride, Caitlyn, and the fab images do all the talking!

The beautiful Caitlyn shares all the details:

From the get go Nick and I tried to stay focused on keeping the wedding as intimate and personal as possible.  It’s so easy to get carried away with all the possibilities available so we tried to incorporate some things that had special meaning to us.  For example, it was important for me to incorporate my grandparents since they were unable to make the trip to Rosemary Beach.  I had our florist wrap a rosary around my bouquet that belonged to my grandmother and has been in my father’s family for years and I wore a pearl ring and earrings that I borrowed from my grandmother on my mom’s side. Also wrapped around the base of my bouquet was a bonnet that I wore as a baby and was folded into a hankerchief;  later it can be folded back into a bonnet for Nick and I’s first child, and so on. My mother-in-law completed the “something old, something new” saying by giving me a six pence for good luck to put in my shoe.

I have always loved all things vintage and have been shopping in my mom and grandmothers’ closets for as long as I can remember. Go along with the vintage style, I knew I wanted my dress to be completely lace and above the knee. I found the gloves and a vintage shop on Magazine Street to complete the style. It also wasn’t right to start our life together on our wedding day without our dog, Phoebe… she completes our little family!  She “got ready” with me and my bridesmaids that morning and then went with me to meet Nick on the boardwalk for our “first look.” Nick and I are both from New Orleans, so  a great band and delicious food were definitely necessities, but we finished off our night keeping in true New Orleans tradition with a second line out of the park.

There were a few projects that we decided to take on ourselves. To formally ask my bridesmaids to be part of our wedding I made a paperdoll chain with each of their names on it. We also did our wedding favors which were individually wrapped caramel apples and we put our wishing tree together, but our florist really vamped it up and put his spin on it to make it even prettier. We truly couldn’t have asked for a more perfect way to celebrate our marriage and the details are what really did it for us!
