Real Wedding | Amy & Joel

Amy & Joel | Vintage Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Amy and Joel’s vintage inspired wedding was truly a blend of cultures. Joel and Amy met overseas and dated long-distance— she was living in Rome, and he in Ohio. They gave their relationship a fair chance though. After months of Skype sessions and handwritten letters, they found themselves in love. Joel proposed shortly after moving to Rome, and they began planning a perfect-for-them wedding that reflected all they hold dear: friends, family, and special touches. They had many Italian friends fly in for it, and had Italian traditions incorporated into their wedding day— Scripture read in Italian during their ceremony, Italian food at their reception, gelato with the wedding cake, and the Italian ribbon-cutting ceremony as Amy left for the wedding ceremony. We also fell in love with all of the charming, special details from the day.

Amy is a darling artistic person, and made most of the decor herself. Including the vintage paper backdrop at the reception. The bunting is made from her grandmother’s scrap fabric bin and Amy hand-drew the olive-leaf motif on their invitations and program. Vintage also played a big role in the decor — They served dinner and dessert on china that Amy collected at vintage stores and yard sales for months before the wedding. It’s the little, personal details that always end up being the most meaningful. Amy wore a gold bracelet — the same one worn by her mother, sister and grandmother on their wedding days. While out on a regular weekend trip to the farmer’s market near her parents’ house, Amy met a woman selling flowers and decided that wildflower bouquets would be the most natural accompaniment to her sweet wedding decor. Homemade buckeyes and maple syrup favors were the finishing touch to their heartfelt, made-with-love celebration.
