Vintage Wedding

Well, it's been awhile since I've been able to post a post. 
(So busy with buying and selling our home.)
The best part about moving is that you get to redecorate a whole new house!!!
I've been very busy making boards on
of all the kids new rooms.
In my spare time I did help a friend set up a vintage themed wedding this weekend.
I think it turned out beautifully.
It helps when the bride has style and great pieces to work with.
Makes me wish I had pinterest way back when I got married.
Ah, c'est la vie.
So, here are a few pictures of vintage done right.
This was the milk and flavoured water bar.
The whole look.

 Love the pops of colour.
This is where the bride and groom exchanged rings.
Some of you  might remember this pallet.
Just a sweet little corner. 
Loving all the old windows and an old fashioned bike.
( you have to know the guy who rides this bike to really appreciate it)
Just a sampling of some the cakes.
This was where the actual cake cutting was to take place.
The barrels were taken straight from the field,
a little scared of
what little creatures
 might have died in them.
Candy table.
This is where all the different cakes were going to be on display.
 I love the furniture she found for this area.
Tables were missing the fresh flowers,
but they were going to be
white hydrangea's
 inside the mason jars.
I love how the whites, creams and neutrals gave such
 a great back drop to just the right amount of colour.
Time to go and pack a few more boxes.
Can't wait!!


  1. What a sweet theme for the wedding decor. You did a super job. Love the soft colors, interesting furniture pieces and the pallets! Who would think those pallets could look so "sweet" when dressed up the way you did them. Good job!

  2. Beautiful Vintage wedding and very creative. LOVE IT!! take care, Darlene

  6. Gorgeous! Kind of makes me wish I had more time/energy/money for planning my wedding! I totally would have done something along these lines. Oh well, guess I missed my shot :)

  8. So beautiful Karyn!! How generous you are with your time and talents. And at least you have 4 children's weddings to plan and you can make all your/their wildest wedding decoration dreams come true. (And I'll help!)
