Where do we begin? How about UH-mazing!
If you’ve seen Ashley and Craig’s engagement session (click here!) you know that they’re those cute, quirky, friend-next-door sort of folk that enjoy vintage things – and have a fantastic sense of humor to boot. The details of this wedding are almost too much to blog (we could add another 100 photos!) – and all the effort behind this DIY wedding is hard to image – it truly was a joy to photograph! We wish we could photograph this wedding every day…Ashley and Craig – if you ever get into wedding planning, look us up! When we say vintage DIY wedding – we mean it…literally everything was homemade, from the most awesome invitations we’ve ever seen (printed on towels!), and felt bouquets to the flags at the ceremony, the endless hand crafted origami cranes that decorated their outdoor venue, the brilliant seating for the ceremony itself, and the limitless little details that filled up the Hampton Barn….we could go on for days…so we’ll just let you see for yourselves, below. Thank you bothl – you truly are the best. Scroll down to the bottom of the photos for a list of vendors! – Clint & Petia
From Ashley & Craig:
Bridesmaid Dresses: Believe it or not they are from Le Chateau! I wasn’t into the whole idea of formal attire that we had to order months in advance and really wouldn’t know exactly how they would look on the girls.
Tea Towels: The tea towels were bought at IKEA and the screen printing was done by a local company in our town (no longer in business). The neat graphic was supplied by Wedding Style Guide (styleguide.com.au) and I modified it to work for our invitations. The response card and information card were made in the same manner.
Hair & Makeup: The task of beautifying us was thankfully in the hands of Lifescapes Salon (http://www.mylifescape.com/)
Music: We were fortunate enough to have two incredible local bands play at our wedding. The Houseplants (http://www.myspace.com/thehouseplantsca) and The Bremen Town Players (http://www.myspace.com/dufferincountymuseum).
Vintage Plates & Mason Jars: Collected from thrift stores (mostly salvation army ones).
Wood Cutlery: Aspenware Compostable Cutlery (purchased from Canada Green Natural Products – http://www.cagreen.ca)
Catering: Delicious BBQ provided by BBQ Gourmet (http://www.bbqgourmet.com/)
Jam Tags: Domestifluff (http://www.domestifluff.com) and altered to suite our needs
Soda Pop: The most amazing pop you’ll ever have with the most incredible packaging – Boylan Bottleworks (http://www.boylanbottling.com)
Paper Straws: Urbanic Paper Boutique (http://urbanicpaper.com/index.php)
Bouquets: DIY with inspiration from Princess Lasertron (http://princesslasertron.com)
