When you’re as laid back as Christy + Mike are, it’s a must for your wedding day to reflect that. A sweet + casual morning wedding with a vintage-inspired theme, rich fall florals, little fairy flower girls, and a happy, easygoing vibe fit the bill for these two, and we think their day will inspire other couples planning a non-traditional celebration, too! By hosting a lunch reception, in lieu of a large dinner event, C + M found the perfect solution for doing something a little bit different from the norm and keeping costs down in the process. To personalize the day + make it their own, Christy tells us, Our inspiration was drawn from us. We tried to throw a party that we’d love to attend…a boozy-bluesy luncheon sounded fantastic!
Thanks so much to Erin hearts Court for sending these lovely images our way + big congrats to the happy couple!
Christy already has a vintage vibe in her everyday style, so she wanted to make sure her wedding day look reflected that. She looked beyond lovely in Tadashi Shoji (found at BHLDN) – and with Joan Ao (Bella Sol Salon) on board for hair + Raul Velasquez (Rauliev Studio) providing makeup, she looked just like an Old Hollywood movie star!
And how killer is that fall bouquet by The Little Branch? Love, love, love!
You guys! Those little fairy flower girls! Too sweet…
Processional: Sun King – The Beatles + Here comes the Bride
Recessional: Be-Bop-A-Lula – Gene Vincent
First Dance: Wondering- Mr. Airplane Man
Our favorite moment was the drive from the ceremony to the reception. We rode in an old vintage car decorated with flowers and streamers it was so fun honking and waving to everyone just the two of us.
Don't spend much more than 15 minutes apart from each other... It's so easy to get separated with all of your friends and family there. We're really grateful that we experienced our wedding together.
