Bridal Inspiration


When I saw the wedding photos of my dear friend Vaughan and his wife Angela, I gasped for air. I loved the vintage feel. Often times people ask me for advice on wedding details, so here is one I’d like to showcase because knowing them makes it all that much more special and they worked on every aspect to make it stand out.

With their blessing here is a little info on the nuptials; Angela made her bouquets from old brooches she found in shops, online, and in Goodwill. One of the cute details of the bride’s bouquet were drapped buttons that were from her great – great grandmother’s dress. The bride’s Alfred Angelo dress was off the rack, hair was swept sideways in an updo and makeup was by MAC. Vaughan’s suit was super stylish and different (I expected nothing less). The couple lives in South Florida so a 3-piece suit was not the obvious choice, the groom chose a vested grey ensemble, blue shirt, fedora and the men in the bridal party including the groom wore Chuck Taylor’s!


The couple did all the signs, flower arrangements, and I imagine thought of the mini Patron bottles given to the guests. The ceremony was held at an old school square in Delray Beach. A New Orleans style jazz band marched all the guests to the reception which was held at a restaurant called DaDa dating to 1924. The party revellers continued the celebration at Delux in Delray Beach were a band entertained everyone. Last but not least, the images were captured by Steve Lawson – he did an amazing job. Congratulations once again!!!
