Today I’m sharing this chic coastal New England wedding from Katie Slater. I love the classic and elegant feel! And how gorgeous is the bride’s statement necklace that was handmade by her godmother? So stunning!
When starting to plan for the wedding, I knew I wanted to incorporate a classic, soft vintage look. I knew I also wanted to integrate the colors of navy and shades of peach. I also started to fall in love with mercury glass, which tied in a vintage feel with an elevated elegance. From there, I started my research, flipping through magazines and studying wedding blog sites.
My necklace was assembled by my godmother after finding out that I wanted a statement piece. She also sewed a monogrammed patch that was inserted on the skirt of my wedding dressing.
The white frames, which were incorporated for the table numbers and table arrangements at the welcome table, were all found at second hand stores. My aunt refinished them and distressed them to carry out the vintage feel.
After deciding I wanted mercury glass for the vases and votives on the tables, my mom started to collect them wherever she could find them. I also thought it would be interesting to have different mercury vases on the tables. Instead of a guestbook, we had two instant cameras and sharpies for guests to take pictures of their own and sign the pictures for Bennett and I to keep and see the moments we missed.
My favorite part of the wedding day was actually the last dance. Our DJ without previous notifying us, asked all our guests to gather around Bennett and I while we were in the middle of the dance floor. He played a song and we danced surrounded by our loved ones. It was a moment that allowed us to soak it all. It was a perfect ending.
