Recently Tara Whittaker featured a wedding on her blog, with great examples of how to add vintage touches to a modern wedding. As we scrolled through the photos, there were 3 things that really impressed us:
1. Vintage can = elegant. Krista & Jeremy were married at the Delta Kananaskis and took full advantage of this luxury hotel with its magnificent, mountain views by adding the vintage touches they loved.
2. Classic vs. Kitsch. We loved the fact that for their wedding decor, they invested in lasting pieces that will become family heirlooms. The hutch they used for their dessert buffet was purchased in a thrift store, re-finished by the couple and now sits in their living room.
The groom (and a few of his friends) were vintage car buffs and they used these restored beauties as their wedding cars and during their wedding photographs.
3. The fashions were completely 2012. The bride's gown (Watters) had a romantic feel with a modern sensibility. The skirt was comprised of layers of lace.
The bridesmaids also wore flirty Watters dresses but Coutu Kitsch necklaces provided that mix of old and new.
Congratulations to a classic couple (with vintage hearts), Krista & Jeremy!
