The vintage theme returned at the reception. The tables had lace tablecloths and crystal. The cake tables were antique dressers. There were also various messages on chalkboards. The centerpieces were cascading floral arrangements.
Erin's dress was amazing. Her dress was made of lace but it was not a simple gown. It had wonderful capped sleeves of lace.The details of the bodice were wonderful. The train was also incredible. She had a beautiful headpiece that accented her hair and she wore a pearl necklace with drop earrings which completed her ensemble.. Creston looked so handsome in his tuxedo. The bridesmaids wore simple short dresses. You would definitely expect that from a more relaxed vintage themed wedding.

They continued the vintage feel by using the grounds. They were married outside under the steeple of the chapel with vine adorning the edges. They took pictures with an old swing from a tree and used an old truck as a prop as well. But even though their wedding had definite Southern charm, it was also elegant. The bride and groom made a stunning couple. They were definitely not dressed as though they were at a simple affair.
