You are in for a summery wedding treat today! A pretty yellow and navy palette, nautical preppy details, and lots of cute personal elements make this wedding really special. Did I mention gorgeous florals? And the lovely photography from Micah and Megan just makes this wedding over-the-top good!
I love how these photos make me feel like I’m there in this moment.
And what is better than a big red double decker bus???
Yellow florals + milk glass = perfection

A little bit from the bride Maria:
I love all things vintage and knew I wanted our wedding to have some unique elements. It all started with my lace dress and the seaside garden venue. I spent over a year collecting milk glass vases from local antique and thrift stores to use as centerpieces. The milk glass collection was one of my favorite elements and the florist brought my vision of loose blooms and non-matching centerpieces to life.
The color combination of navy and yellow was a way of bringing a nautical touch to the wedding. Using all yellow flowers (except for the bridal bouquet) seemed perfect for a spring wedding. We found a shop on etsy that made coordinating yellow ties for the groomsmen and the cutest seersucker ring pillow https://www.etsy.com/
shop/tuxandtulle. The wedding and cocktails signs were also from etsy https://www.etsy.com/ people/RomanticPlanet.
Many of the details were DIY to save money and to keep with the vintage look. I made the chalkboard style table numbers, card box, umbrella pail sign, and worked with an up and coming graphic designer on the programs and seating charts. Our cake topper was vintage and the lace table cloths were antique and made by my great grandmother.
How did you make your wedding YOU?
We focused on a couple of pieces that made our wedding feel more personal. I decided to incorporate black and white wedding photos from both sides of our family using some of my great grandmother’s antique frames with couples who inspired us and as a way of including those who were no longer there to celebrate. My sister (maid of honor) and I both wore brooches in our hair that had belonged to my grandmother.
It was important to my husband to have his pride and joy, his 1966 Ford bronco included in our big day. I surprised him with the Fitz’s soda at the bar (since it is his nickname and a signature drink) and a pair of Burberry cufflinks to wear.
