Spring DIY Vintage Inspired Wedding

Jessica & Sean

March 31

Clinton, Tennessee

From the Photographer: Sit back and enjoy this wedding with a glass of sweet iced tea and a warm slice of peach cobbler! Jessica and Sean’s southern wedding was March 31, 2012, at Mt. Hermon United Methodist Church — the cutest little white country chapel in Tennessee (built in 1894) that you have ever seen! And their wedding reception was at the Museum of Appalachia. Their wedding included lots of personalized and sentimental touches, including hand made bridesmaids dresses in vintage patterns, a quilt-square guestbook, tea-stained place cards from etsy, wood burn signs hand made by the groom, and antique china the couple collected at rummage sales and antique stores over the course of their engagement. The couple even found a plate from the same pattern the groom’s grandmother had – and that plate was for his mother on their wedding day. The groom & groomsmen had personalized cufflinks with their initials on them, and the bride also wrapped her bouquet with a lace doily her great-grandmother hand made. After dashing out of the little white country church, the couple drove off in an antique 1960’s Corvette Convertible. Their wedding cake was made by a friend, Charlotte Click, who was also the mother of one of the bridesmaids, who the bride had known most of her life. ~JoPhoto

Chelsey & Austin

July 2011

Maryville, Tennessee

From the Photographer: “This is an eco-chic wedding that was jam packed with DIY details, including bird houses, wood table centerpieces with mason jars filled with bird seed and tea lights, burlap table runners, silverware tied with twine, a “just married” banner draped across the head table, personalized hand fans for all the ceremony guests, and on and on and on! Oh, and be sure to check out their wedding cake with the hand made love bird cake topper on the wood cake stand too! At the end of their wedding celebration, all the guests went out into the field at Smithview Pavilion and lit and released Chinese sky lanterns. It was an amazing send off, and a fabulous ending to their wedding day!”-
