Last fall, Erica and Collin got married at Webb Barn in Connecticut. Their wedding had all the elements that we appreciate here at PH+C. Erica’s 60's dress was found at vintagewedding.com and her veil was made from her mother's veil, to which she added new tulle and lace. Her bridesmaids bought vintage dresses from the 50’s and 60’s that they found themselves at thrift stores while the groomsmen's shirts were chosen to match the same vintage feel.
One of the highlights of the wedding was the band, aptly named The Barnstormers, which consisted of the bride, groom, father and brothers of the groom, and mother, father and aunt of the bride. Weddings are meant to be a reflection of the bride and groom and the people in their lives. This is really best highlighted by incorporating your personal talents and creativity into it!
Among the homemade decor was a giant wooden cut-out painting of Collin's father's guitar. The decorative guitar was originally made by Collin's uncle as part of a float designed by his late wife. Upon arrival to the barn, guests were served hot cider. As a gift for all the guests, they gave a mix CD.
Erica and Colin had their fingerprints imprinted on their wedding rings.
Isn't it great to see two people not giving into conventional wedding brouhaha and creating their own, creative, inspired day? Heck yes!
