Sharing this super sweet red barn engagement session from Elizabeth Ann Photography today. An old barn in a field is the perfect location for the rustic and outdoors loving couple.
Today I’m sharing this romantic New Orleans wedding from Tying the Knot. I love all the meaningful and vintage details, everything is so classic and chic! And they have one of my favorite ideas, a live painter. Having a live painter capture your day is such a sweet way to record your memories and cherish them for generations.
Our wedding was such a special time…a time filled with so much love and so many cherished memories! It wasn’t just the day itself, but the whole process that made this time so special. The days spent with my Mom, planning and putting together all the little details that made our day so special and intimate, are days I’ll treasure forever!
It was very important to me to include and carry on the memories of loved ones who were no longer with us! By doing so, there were many old family photographs scattered throughout our reception venue. My grandparents cake topper also adorned the top of our wedding cake. Antique vases, china, silver and lace belonging to my great grandmother were used, as well.
Being a December wedding, I wanted to capture the feel of an intimate, cozy Christmas gathering. My expectations were more than met… it truly felt like “coming home”! The love of family and close friends that surrounded Aaron and me on our wedding day will be with us always!
The best part of the whole day though, was the beautiful marriage ceremony, celebrating the love Aaron and I have for each other!

So excited for this fun new vintage fashion series here on Glamour & Grace! There are some vintage bridal looks that are so iconic, what bride wouldn’t want to emulate it? With this new series, Get the Look, I’ve hunted through hundreds of gowns to find the perfect modern pair.
First up in this series is Jackie O. Her silk taffeta bouffant style gown was the design of Ann Lowe. With it’s off the shoulder cut and ruffled details, this is definitely an iconic gown. Though it was actually reported that Jackie didn’t really like the gown because it accentuated her small bust (something to remember in your own gown hunt, look to flatter your shape!)
In my hunt for the perfect look alike, I stumbled across this Peppermint Pretty gown that was actually inspired directly from the Jackie O original. If you are head over heels for this exact look, this gown is perfect for you!
If you are really in love with the bodice cut of the Jackie O gown, here are some of my favorite current off the shoulder favorites. From tulle to lace to chiffon, these gowns are great choices to get a modern and romantic update to the iconic original.
If it’s the ruffle detailing that makes your heart flutter, here are some gorgeous ruffled skirt options to make you fall in love.
For her veil, Jackie wore a Juliet cap styled veil that was worn by her grandmother. The cathedral length lace and tulle veil is stunning, here are some of my favorite Juliet caps of a similar style.
What do you think? Are you in love with the Jackie O look? Are there any other vintage brides who’s looks you’d love to have?
