Vintage and minimalism meet in this charming white wedding captured by Casey Green Photography. With a historic courthouse as their backdrop, this couple set the scene for a beautiful wedding filled with meaningful details and a simple vintage touch. I love the cake display on the grand piano! Such a dreamy setting!
We spent many of our dating years centered around the Decatur area, so we felt right at home choosing our wedding venue in Decatur Square. My husband and I don’t have a very conventional style, but we both wanted a traditional white wedding. We chose accents of soft grey, navy, and a rich green. The all white marble ballroom was a perfect canvas to build on.
My mother used the skirt of her wedding dress to create pocket squares embroidered with the date for all of the men in the bridal party. She also took apart her dress bodice to create a beaded bag for me. My family also follows the lucky tradition of putting a handed-down sixpence in the bride’s shoe.
The ability to choose our own vendors and have free reign with decor was the most important consideration to us while planning. We visited so many venues that forced couples into using their cakes, their decor, their vendors, florals, etc. and we wanted something uniquely us. We felt we couldn’t have the day we wanted with so many limitations. The Historic Courthouse in Decatur allowed us the freedom to have a wedding that felt like “us.”
My husband and I honeymooned in Japan, so we had our guests write notes in a book about Japan instead of leaving just their names in a traditional guest book. I also created the table numbers out of vintage Japanese postcards.
The best part was marrying my best friend! We were so blessed to be surrounded by such loving and supportive family members and friends. (They’re also very patient – we dated nine years before we got married!) The day was more perfect than I could have ever imagined.
