DIY vintage inspired wedding: Liz + Dara

Liz + Dara are a playful bunch. They’re also nature lovers and spend a lot of time outdoors, so it seemed natural to plan an outdoor wedding. Their wedding venue, the historical Oak Tree Manor, could not have been more perfect. Wait until you see the oak tree they got married under! Liz wasn’t sure how lawn games, whimsical details like coke bottle escort cards, or vintage decor would all come together, but the outcome was prettier than she could have ever imagined.

I first spotted Oak Tree Manor on a wedding photographer’s blog, and I was blown away by photos of the incredible old oak tree. The venue was even prettier in person, and the family that runs it was very friendly and flexible. We loved the vintage charm of the bed and breakfast. We toured several other venues afterwards, but none compared to Oak Tree Manor. We returned one evening after dark to see the whole venue lit up by strands of cafe lights, and that cemented our decision – we emailed in our contract the next morning.

I just fell in love with this venue. It feels so homey. Especially with the large screen for photos...reminds me of an outdoor theater :)

certainly like your web site but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I’ll certainly come back again.

Great location with a very entertaining theme!

Dara on Aug 1, 2013

I really love the invitation design, I wish I could get my hands on it. Is there anyway to get more information on how this was done?

Stephanie Denova on Oct 28, 2013

This wedding is absolutely gorgeous and very tastefully done! I've fallen in love with those invitations and am also wondering , as the comment above, if you have a post about how they were made? Or is the design available for purchase? Thank you
