Heather and Antonio: A Vintage Southern California Wedding

Posted by Lacey Wilcox on 4th May 2014

Heather and Antonio were married in beautiful Southern California. For their outdoor ceremony, they wanted a rustic, vintage style as the theme for their wedding day. Their vintage wedding featured a soft color palette, handmade details all around, and bouquets of roses, dahlias, and amaranthus.


The key to Heather and Antonio’s success in creating such a beautiful rustic wedding is their attention to detail. Almost every aspect of this wedding was handmade. Friends helped them DIY antique furniture finds to provide decor, table areas, and seating; the flower girl boxes and ring bearers book stacks were made by hand; and the invitations and stationary were done by hand as well.


Heather and Antonio wanted their wedding to be an opportunity to display their unique personality and style, as well as the individual styles of the members of their bridal party. Each bridesmaid chose a different dress in the same color. Groomsmen wore 1920-s themed ensembles, with white shirts, black trousers, vests and suspenders, newsboy style hats, and of course, wooden bow ties.


Antonio and some of his groomsmen wore the Floyd, our wooden bow tie made from walnut, etched with a plaid design, and wrapped in light grey fabric. Its tone and color coordinated perfectly with the soft, vintage palette for this rustic outdoor wedding.


Heather and Antonio, congratulations on a beautiful ceremony, and the beginning of your life together. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your vintage wedding day!
