Our Vintage Style Wedding

| |

After only 3 months of planning, we pulled it off! Three months earlier our preferred venue had a cancellation…so we went for it! I wrote a few posts that may give you some ideas on planning a DIY wedding, rustic elegant style. Today I’ll just share the photos.

Wedding Venue Cincinnati

We were married at French Park in Cincinnati, Ohio. We loved the venue, but being 200 miles away made it a roll-up-your-sleeves-and-DIY-wedding, all the way. It wasn’t easy planning a wedding site-unseen (only via virtual tours)…but it turned out pretty well overall.

 My kids. Ethan is almost 15 and my daughter, Avery is 10. Our dresses are from David’s Bridal, all off the rack ;-)

 We had an outdoor photobooth. Lace curtains hung from a tree surrounding an old, vintage frame.
