When done right, a wedding’s décor can make an already happy celebration just that much more perfect. That’s the kind of night it was at my friends’ vintage-inspired wedding.
After an outdoor ceremony, the reception took place in the indoor-outdoor space of a converted barn on a working farm. The backdrop of rolling hills and planted crops perfectly suited the vintage items that decorated the tables, the walls and the dessert bar. In this carefully-thought-out wedding, everything just felt right.
They had the vintage details down. From an old wooden chest holding programs, (which also doubled as fans!), to galvanized metal tubs storing bottled water to old spoons and wooden boxes decorating the tables, this wedding couldn’t have been more vintage perfect.
Their colors even nodded to vintage. Bridesmaids wore pale, pale blue flowy dresses and groomsmen sported bright red vests and ties. Chinese lanterns in the same colors canvassed the ceiling of the barn, hung between strings of lights.
Kelsey and Jon Pierson know how to have a wedding vintage-style. Check out some pictures from the vintage event below!
[Simple, yet stylish vintage decorations adorned the tables. Old blue Ball mason jars showed off flowers. A wooden box on each table held vintage trinkets (left). Guests received a small mason jar, which they could fill with goodies at a candy bar (right).]
[A sign welcomes guests to fill an individual mason jar with munchies from the candy bar to take home. The candy bar held gourmet goodies like habenero jelly beans and chocolate covered sunflower seeds, as well as more tradtional candy.]
This beautiful wedding had my vintage-loving heart a’ fluttering all night. Or maybe that was the heat of Missouri in July. (The couple later thanked guests for “sweating it out with them” if that gives you any indication of the temperature.) Either way, this vintage wedding couldn’t have been more perfect.
Keep Up With Red Leaf Style!
