Handmade Vintage Circus Wedding: Romy + Kevin

vintage circus wedding

Romy + Kevin had the sweetest vintage circus wedding last summer. So fun to hear that Romy got a lot of her ideas from GWS also! :) Romy + Kevin are a fun couple and really just wanted their wedding to be fun! Romy has always loved the circus and wanted their wedding to reflect that, but in a tasteful way and I’ll think you’ll agree she succeeded in both! Their wedding took place at the beautiful Murrieta’s Well Winery in Livermore, California and included lots of DIY elements. Romy spent over a year making crepe paper flowers to incorporate with the bouquets, table arrangements and boutonnieres. She also painted lots of little animals to use as the balloon weights and stacked them for centerpieces. Working with a close friend (and bridesmaid), they designed the fun circus invitation suite and all the other paper details. Big congrats to the happy couple + thanks so much for sharing your day with us today! :)

Romy also crafted the cute bird cake topper and made the mini pennant garland out of washi tape for the cake. Kevin built the red + white scalloped cake stand and boxes for their circus themed dessert buffet.

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

My favorite memory of the wedding was towards the end when all of our family and friends surrounded us with hugs on the dance floor and we all sang Al Green's "Let's Stay Together". That was the absolute peak of my evening!


Our Advice To Those Planning Now

Document everything with photos as much as possible! Even though the planning process is stressful it is still part of the wedding. I tried to take as many pictures as possible while making all of our projects because both Kevin and our friends worked together on everything and I wanted to cherish that as a part of our wedding memories!

Thanks so much Romy + Kevin! If you want to see more of Romy’s details, check out this post on her blog.
