DIY Vintage Wedding St Petersburg Florida


“Every single detail for this wedding was steeped in tradition. The bride’s family has a long history in St. Petersburg and they chose the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club as a venue that would celebrate this history – Jessie’s grandparents were members in the club’s early years and their family went there often growing up.”

“When they picked this venue they envisioned a celebration that brought the family together and tied in sentimental details like catering from their favorite restaurant growing up, heirloom quilts that her great grandmother made, signs that her father hand made, table runners her mother sewed, macaroons that her sister baked and a slew of other incredible details and stations that were all hand crafted and curated by her mother.”

Vintage Reception Dress

“Jessie shortened her mother’s wedding dress and wore it to her rehearsal dinner to kick off the weekend and to represent all of the important women in her family she wore her mother’s purse, her grandmother’s wedding rings and her twin sister’s bracelet. She also wrapped her bouquet with lace from her sister’s wedding gown and finished it with a brooch from her grandmother.”

“Jessie’s grandparents met on the pier during World War 2, so we took all of her wedding portraits there as a nod to that and were so glad that this was a part of her wedding before it was torn down.”

Vintage Art Deco Cake Toppers

Admittedly, it’s true that I will take any excuse to think about/talk about/dream about cake. CAKE! Glorious, wondrous cake. Today’s excuse? This collection of vintage Art Deco cake toppers, perfect for a 1920s themed soiree, and the ideal accompaniment to delicious cake.

First, this delicate vintage paper-scrap piece, adorned with silver-plated glass glitter. This piece is a true keepsake, packaged and boxed with a space inside to hold mementos.

Vintage Style Parisian Wedding | Kali + Justin

You would think an intimate, vintage style Parisian wedding would be absolutely dreamy from start to finish, just a perfectly romantic vision of loveliness… and in this case, YOU WOULD BE RIGHT.

Vintage Style Parisian Wedding

This stunning Parisian wedding from Paris Photographer Pierre is pure romance! Paris itself is so much more than just romance of course: it’s a gorgeous city, vibrant, filled with history and art and culture. But there’s a reason the idea (and reality!) of Paris looms so large in so many romantic dreams: it is undeniably, swoon-worthily romantic.
