A Vintage Summer Wedding

A couple weekends ago my family and I traveled to St. Louis for our cousin’s wedding.  And boy was I glad I remembered to bring my camera.  I know wedding month has ended, but I just had to share this adorable wedding!

Matt and Candace were married at the St. Louis Zoo in the reptile exhibit.  Then we went over to a local brewery for the amazing reception.  You could really see Matt and Candace in all of the details.

When guests walked in they were greeted with a lovely table decorated with pictures, favors and other personal artifacts.

Pictures of their parents and grandparents on their wedding day were hung with clothes pins.

As party favors, guests were asked to take small birdseed treats home to feed the birds.

Instead of using a traditional guest book, Matt and Candace had a tree outlined.  Guests were asked to put their fingerprints on the branches and sign their names by the “leaves.”

Table cards were hung with clothespins on an old vintage window.

Each table had a gorgeous arrangement of wildflowers in old blue mason jars and table numbers adorned with hummingbirds.

Congratulations Matt and Candace!  Thanks for letting us share in your special day.

    I have never seen the tree thumb print guest book before! That is such a great idea, and really creative. Love it ❤
