Two back to back Australian weddings in one week, that’s exciting! The beauty of it, is how entirely unique from each other they are, but all the same lovely. As for a theme, Erin + Noah would say it was a 50s, 60s, colorful, eclectic, vintage, mismatched, with a rugged twist wedding. Did they DIY much? Oh yes, there was lots of that going on. With the circle of talented friends E + N have, and the fun “crafternoons” they hosted to gather everyone to paint, sew, write signage, and glue, all the old drawers, doors, and scraps of wood were transformed to create the foundations for their wedding!

Much of the aim of our wedding was to reuse materials, source older things, and work around that aesthetic of eclectic vintage. We love old things, and we wanted our wedding to reflect recycling,  and treasuring and passing on the old. We also aimed at only buying things we felt we could reuse in our home for the future. Like the custom sign we had over our dance floor that we cant wait to hang in our home!

Our friend Monica (designer and owner of Green Peas for Breakfast Design Studio) accepted the task of making custom invitations, and did such a great job! We were inspired to have a hand illustrated portrait of us, using the colour palette of the wedding and bringing in all  the elements, to set the tone for our guests! It was tremendously important to us to LOVE our invites, and we really did!

Love that the wedding party included groomspeople (not just men). Guys have best gal pals that got to represent too!

Because of our love for the doggie nation and how its a known fact we have bleeding hearts for doggie rescue, we decided to do the table numbers as dogs, and included our own dogs, and some friends dogs to seat our guests! Noah is a talented illustrator and designer and he hand drew all the dogs.

Noah thought I was nuts at first, but I wanted to collect all the crockery for table settings, and all the bottles/jars/vases for the flowers from thrift stores. We are avid thrifters and got pretty excited at the idea of collecting 70 sets of mismatched awesome settings. I love vintage plates and tea cups so it was pretty much a dream come true for me to have an excuse to seek these all out! We were very dedicated to finding them all, and starting searching as soon as we got engaged, so we had about 18 months to find everything! Overall all the crockery- table settings, only cost us $120!

Field roses, milk thistle, snow berry, hydrangeas, chrysanthemums, orchids, and asters, all created a fresh picked feeling as if you just went out and picked a big bunch of beautiful!

They also made all those pillows for the lounge area using vintage fabric. Always a great idea when you can DIY something for your wedding then reuse it as decor in your home after!

This is getting us excited for outdoor summer parties!
