If a bit of rustic charm is your kind of vibe, you will love this sweet Austrian barn wedding from Velvet Love! With an open back tea length wedding dress and cute mason jar centerpieces, this wedding is intimate with vintage touches. We love the dreamy hillside ceremony under a tree!
We wanted to have an intimate celebration in vintage style.
My engagement ring is actually made of the old wedding rings of my parents.
I wanted my dress to have teacup length to fit my personal desire to move freely and of course to fit our vintage style wedding. The groom wore a light Italian suit to suit the nice and warm weather in May.
We wanted to create a happy and romantic mood for us and all our guests. We never expected the day to be perfect but it actually turned out exactly that way, even with the small rain shower during our ceremony.
Our favorite parts of the day were the wedding ceremony, our photo-shooting and of course the first dance.

From the designer, planner, and florist Florals by Fittsy: Since I was young I’ve always had a strong connection to mermaids. I mean they’re beautiful, feminine, mythical, stormy and mysterious. So naturally I wanted to create a siren-inspired photo shoot set against the expanse of the deep blue ocean and the textured backdrop of the rocky coast. The idea was to tell a classical story of shipwrecks and mythical lore, not only the beauty but also the danger of the siren’s call with a modern elegant aesthetic.
The color inspiration came from the Disney’s version of The Little Mermaid being purple and green (less the red hair) and blue for the general ocean environment. However, I really didn’t want to do a literal take on the colors, but a color story that reflected the theme in an organic way. The bouquets were intended to feel like they were pulled from the sea – wild, tousled, and murky. I used a vintage, bronze, compote bowl randomly given to me by my grandmother and focused on loose variations of greenery with hints of delicate flowers sprinkled throughout. The tablescape was setup against a sea grass and ocean backdrop, along with the calligraphy welcome mirror. The mirror was from a barn estate sale in Wells, Maine. The table featured Anthropologie plate and glassware, vintage tapered-candle holders from Etsy, and tiny dried starfish sourced from Cabbot Mill Antiques in Brunswick, Maine. The sea glass name cards and handcrafted seashell and coral bottles were the final touch to a table set for mermaids galore.
