This details of April and Chris’s unique handcrafted vintage wedding were amazing! The groom explains, “Everything was either made by us or purchased from antique stores or craft fairs as we really wanted to have a unique vintage wedding. We started making our own things to save money, but it really turned into making the wedding truly “ours”. All in all I made about 800 flowers. Yet with all the many antiques we planned to use, from furniture to popcorn machines, to guitars and hundreds of antique books, our families feared it would be too much.
But we knew all along what we wanted, and it couldn’t have turned out better!” And with Stephanie A Smith Photography behind the lens, they have these amazing images to look back on.
The groom’s favorite moment was when they said their vows. The bride was very nervous about reading her written vows in front of everyone. To calm her jitters, the bride and groom played a quick game of rock, paper, scissors. “April won,” Chris explains, “with rock crushing scissors,” so he said his vows first. How cute is that?
