vintage wedding chic

i've been heavily involved in the wedding planning of my dear friend jessica, who is set on a modern vintage affair with lots of rustic touches, antique elements, and rich colors. naturally, i'm now obsessed with all things vintage, and had to share some of our best inspirations.


there's something very personal about an eclectic vintage aesthetic — from the dress, to desserts, to mismatched pillows and antique birdcages, each style choice speaks volumes about the couple. and of course, the look never goes out of style.


favorites? the amazing birdcages handing in the trees and above the tables, lit with candles and bedecked with flowers. and the vintage tins bursting with colorful bouquets are stunning.

its the cleverness of vintage decor that is probably its biggest charm. an old watering can on a distressed wooden chair is suddenly chic when it becomes an unexpected vase. how can you not fall in love?

I'm nuts about old bird cages and elaborately decorated teacup/saucer duos. Fantastic inspiration board!
