A little vintage glam...

Today I helped Sarah decorate her wedding; which was held at a country club near starved rock (I love the area around starved rock, it is so beautiful!) Sarah loves vintage items and wanted to incorporate touches into her wedding.  Her goal was to create a room that was dramatic but not stuffy! 
By incorporating vintage brooches, gold, black and feathers we ended up with the perfect vintage glam look:)

The bridesmaid's bouquets featured roses, hydrangeas, silk ribbon, a brooch and feathers!

 All of the boutonnieres and corsages were handmade from paper to resemble one of my favorite flowers - anemones.  Fresh anemones are not available with black centers in the fall, soooo my paper bouts and corsages were an alternative and actually turned out better than using real anemones!

Sarah began collecting milk glass as soon as she became engaged!  She sprayed them black to stick with our theme, it also made the vases look much more elegant.  Each table hosted different vases which made the decor so unique!

What a beautiful wedding!

I've been meaning to share some pics from our french market - here are a few great ideas and pretty fall things to look at:)

Have a great weekend!!

Traci -

The tables and decor is simply stunning! Great colors together and love the brooch idea. Who would have thought to paint milk glass ~ another creative idea. The bride had to be pleased with your work. Looked like a beautiful day for your market. Missed you at Na Da Farm.
