These two shy partners rocked their vintage bibliophile Stardust wedding

I wanted my wedding to have a classic old Hollywood style. Since we are both bibliophiles who bonded over a love of the stars and Neil Gaiman, we picked Stardust as our inspiration. I was inspired by the images of paper moon photo booths, which fit perfectly with the vintage and astronomical themes that we wanted. I'm also a burlesque dancer who can't image a wedding without glitter.

Superheroes, motorcycles, & an heirloom dress slayed us at this Pasadena wedding

Osdael and Breseida’s Pasadena wedding was completely customized to their personalities, including showcasing their love of motorcycle riding by replacing their guestbook with their personal motorcycle helmets. That’s one way of keeping everyone on your mind, literally. They both tied in their love of superheroes in to the cake, cupcakes, and the groomsmen’s cufflinks and socks. Y’all know we love a good comic book and superhero wedding! Hulk smash that cake.

Have tea at this vintage-inspired wedding with the “dress-cued” vintage dress of our dreams

When a vintage fashion blogger, Frances, married her sweet husband, Doug, we couldn’t stop ogling their fashion, tender looks, and amazing venue. They’re both choir singers and had a Catholic ceremony followed by a relaxed brunch reception at the historic Community House of Hamilton, MA, which included tea and games.

Prepare yourself to witness the $50 vintage dress Frances was able to “dress-cue” into this current amazingness. Those sleeves, that collar, her hairstyle! And Doug’s tie matches it all perfectly. We have so much love for this vintage-inspired wedding in Massachusetts.
