Real Wedding: Gracie + Dave’s Vintage Picnic Wedding

I just love how fun, happy + colorful this wedding is – and the fact that Gracie had a bunch of butterflies in her hair!!! Gracie told me she wanted a vintage picnic theme for her wedding. Her favorite moments of the day were: seeing all the colors, the cupcake eating, ribbon altar, and just knowing that everyone had fun. :) Congrats to Gracie + Dave!

Any advice for those planning now? Personalization is best! Make sure not to accept tradition for tradition sake. Make new ones!
