When planning their wedding, Sarah & Matthew new they wanted a classic look with some vintage flair, and most importantly they wanted their special day to be fun for everyone. And I tell you guys, this sweet couple thought of everything & everyone, sunglass favors for their guests to wear during the ceremony, a cocktail hour that included a mash potato martini bar – plus lawn games, a sweets table and party favors just for the kids. And to me their black, white & red color scheme is the perfect combo for their classic/vintage look.
Special thanks go out to Shandro Photo for sending this magnificent wedding my way!
From the Bride, Sarah:
How did you meet?
Matt and I met when we were 18 at a New Year’s Eve Party. We were each others New Year’s kiss and started dating after that night.
What were your Wedding Planning Inspiration and Style?
I really liked a vintage style, I tried to go classic with a fun edge! So we had a mashed potato martini bar, a sweets table, goodie bags for the kids, games at cocktail hour, mini golf, etc. We just wanted to make it a fun day for celebrating.
What are some of your favorite memories of the day?
Some of my favorite memories were the first look with the red balloons, reading our personalized vows to each other, getting to enjoy the cocktail hour with our guests, and remaking the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie cover with my bridesmaids.
Do You have any advice for other brides?
My advice for the other brides would be to have fun with it and make it personal. I loved the personal touches we put throughout the wedding, from our vows, to a “Wish you were here” table (pictures of pass loved ones who couldn’t celebrate with us), to the centerpieces that were wedding pictures of all the previous people who got married in the families and their love story. Also, plan, plan, plan. I made sure everything was so organized that the day went off without a hitch! No stress for this bride!
