Becky gathered family wedding heirlooms from generations for the vintage celebration.

Guests were greeted on the front porch with bride and groom Barbie dolls in vintage wedding attire tucked inside a flower urn. Once inside, the main decorative attraction was a fresh floral arrangement inside a 1950s powder-pink bridal gown. All floral designs were by Deb Huber, a family cousin and interior decorator.

Heirloom dishes displayed custom sugar cookies and creme-filled cupcakes. Two masculine surpirses awaited the groom: antique golf clubs accenting the bar area; and a “tie the knot” table of neckties from years gone by. A Gourmet popcorn tree with tags that read “he popped the question” added to the take-home treat selection. A stone wine bar was transformed into the “He Put a Ring on it Saloon” with signature drinks like, “Brown Eyed Bride” and “Lucky in Love Lemonade.”

A getaway suitcase for the honeymoon was packed with a mirror and brush set from the 1920s, a wedding purse from the 1950s, bridal magazines, and a going-away dress from the 1930s.

An antique wedding topper and tiny bridesmaid dolls added charm to the décor.

With a party this fun and creative, we’re sure Brett and Jessica’s wedding will be a hit this May!
