Real Wedding: Angie + Tyson’s Fun Backyard Wedding

Happy Monday! I have such a gorgeous wedding to start the week off! The bride, Angie, is a clothing designer and the groom, Tyson, is an artist. They live in Montreal and had a gorgeous backyard wedding last month.  Angie wore an incredible vintage dress she purchased for $5!! What a find! And wait until you see the bridesmaids dresses she made :)  There were so many incredible small details that went into their day. All photography by Kamp Photography.

You will see all of the wedding party with what looks to be war medals. These were all custom made out of wood, and featured the name of each individual person.

The ceremony was held in the backyard of Angie’s parents and was officiated by Tyson’s brother.

Friday Favors: July 23rd

Etsy Wedding Finds

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend. We are taking out a wall in our house between the kitchen and living room – actually in progress right now! So I’m excited for a more open living floor plan and have some other house projects to do this weekend, plus some shopping/prepping for a fun shoot next week.

Before we head out into the sun, let’s talk about how awesome etsy is. I know – you already know it is! But every week (ok, day!) I find something new and fun there. And, yep, etsy is now one of our sponsors – so excited to have you! I used etsy to find some great things for my wedding as I’m sure many of you did also or if not, you need to check it out! Some of my current favorites include these just married burlap banners, cute cake toppers, handmade heels, a sweet ring and gorgeous wedding dresses by Joan Shum. What are your favorite finds?

And some other fun things from around the web in case you missed them:
