See that smile on Michelle’s face? That’s the smile of a bride who just radiates warmth and cheerfulness. It’s the smile of a gal who chose her wedding color story based on what shades would make guests feel happy, and looked to her favorite childhood games, foods, and memories to set the tone. Pretty sure this must’ve been one of the most fun weddings ever for everyone in attendance. Thanks to Tin Sparrow Studio for sharing the photos with us!

Michelle says, I lived on a farm until I was 7, so that was a huge part of choosing our venue, The Kaaterskill. I loved the nostalgic feeling it gave me and tried to tie my childhood memories into the decor. We actually only looked at one venue and stuck with it because it had everything we wanted.

Would you believe us if we told you that Michelle’s gorgeous vintage wedding dress cost a grand total of $150 including the veil? Yup.

I tried to add in fun and unique experiences where I could, and one thing that I was really excited about was our musical processional parade to the ceremony site and recessional parade to cocktail hour. We chose Bibio’s song “Lovers’ Carving.” We had a couple friends play it on banjo and accordion, and tried to get guests to join in on the singing, clapping, and ribbon twirling.

  1. Yay! Thank you so much for the feature. The wedding was amazing and a lot of fun. I am selling a lot of the decor right now actually, check the link! Thanks again :)

  2. Wonderful! The colors are amazing and I love all the details.

  3. Very beautiful decor. Lovely.

  4. Wow! What a fun and beautiful wedding. I want to ask about your cake — was it tiramisu? It looks scrumptious! And that pony game? I’ve never seen that before.

    Congratulations to the two of you! Xxoo

  5. @ Cristine

    The cake was made of layers of spiced carrot cake interspersed with maple cream cheese icing, per the bride’s request. :)

  6. The horse game was something I used to play when I was little.. we would just give each horse a number and race using dice. My husband made the horse game board using colors from our wedding!

  7. Also, is it possible to credit my seamstress who worked on my wedding dress (We cut the sleeves off, took it in, and added a tulle skirt!) and created 3 bridesmaid and 2 flower girl dresses!
