Vintage Inspired Wedding - Brandis & Ronald
Happy Wednesday Guys....I hope you are ready for lots of vintage inspired goodness today...we have two AMAZING features for you today and I'm so excited to share all the loveliness with you...first up...the "vintage inspired" wedding of Brandis & Ronald...their wedding story is simply beautiful...first of all, they are a beautiful couple...Brandis is such a sweetheart...I'm so happy to share their special day at the cafe....capturing all the beauty of their wedding day is our friend Barett Henry of Civic Photos....Barett's work is so beautiful and so romantic...I love his style and I'm so happy to have him stop by the cafe today...and we're also excited to share Brandis & Ronald's wedding story with our beautiful friends at  Essence Magazine Online.....let's check out all the magic....Enjoy!!


Brandis shares all the details with us....."I planned my wedding while in nursing school. I did lots of DIY projects during all of it as well. Growing up I use to look at pictures of my grandmother when she was younger and I fell in love with the way she dressed, her 40's hairstyles and etc. I started to wish I lived in that era! So when it came down to planning my wedding...I wanted to "go back in time" and bring back that 40's - 50's look like I'd seen in my grandmother's photos....they are so classic!

The most memorable moment for me in the aspects of planning my wedding was seeing all of my hard work come together! When I seen how my wedding cake (which hand designed) actually looked, when I seen how my wedding invitations came out (which I designed using photoshop), the menu cards etc. It was a beautiful moment.

The advice I have for other brides is to be creative! Use items that you can keep for memories (i.e. my bouquet was made of brooches, pearls, and silk fabric flowers....I wanted something I could keep forever and put in a shadow box..not flowers that would wilt and die). I would have never thought that our wedding would be featured in so many wedding blogs. All I knew is that I wanted our wedding to be different...and that I would not regret a thing!"











Brandis and the ladies are all so GORGEOUS...loving this image of them!
