{real wedding} kristen + sam's vintage wedding

Today’s wedding is pretty special. The bride & groom, Kristin & Sam infused their artistic love of design, photography, and music into a beautiful, romantic celebration that was full of personality and fun.  They are living proof that elegance and style can be achieved on even the most shoestring budget.  
  The programs, printed on brown kraft paper, featured their silhouettes and resembled an old-fashioned playbill.  The floral design captured an easy, prairie aesthetic in gorgeous pastels.  
 A year ago, they were already scouring flea markets for fabulous antique pieces to decorate their casual, outdoor ceremony and reception in a favorite park pavilion. Many details were DIY'ed by Kristin, a talented mixed media artist. 
The couple also showed off their collection of antique cameras in a sweet, stylized photo booth during the reception.  
One of Kristen's projects was an altered book entitled "Great Lovers" in which she carved out a little box to store both the rings and text of their very personalized vows.
