“Christine & Andre’s wedding was held on a beautiful autumn day, it was full of fun and relaxation. The couple created their own decorations and took care with each item, ensuring it was well thought out and meaningful to them. The feel of the day was very vintage and DIY. Most importantly the two were very much in love and focused on each other the entire day.” - Picture That Photography
“My favorite memory is our entire wedding day! It was everything I had dreamed of and was so grateful to celebrate our love with our closest friends and family…
..Since we had 17 months to plan our wedding I had a lot of time to craft! Our DIY projects included the table numbers, the paper flowers made from old French books, the favors, the photobooth backdrop and many of our flowers were from Andre’s mother’s garden!
..My something blue and something borrowed was the garter Andre’s grandmother wore on her wedding day. My something old was an antique French ivory shawl I purchased from Etsy, and my something new was my dress!
..When planning, stick to your own style and make your day unique and only what you and your fiance envisioned it to be.” – Christine, the bride
