Nancy + Trenton’s classic vintage inspired wedding was so full of thoughtful details, where to begin? For starters, Nancy designed the bridesmaid dresses! And she learned calligraphy. Plus, they hit up antique shops for brass décor… See what all those long hours added up to in these shots by photog Phil Chester:

We love Nancy’s vintage bareMinerals makeup. See how to achieve this 1940s Rockabilly inspired beauty look in this post.

She had a 3am campout at the Monique Lhuillier sample sale to snag this (brand new!) gown. Sooo worth it.

On the bridesmaid dresses: Their dresses were vintage inspired, all different, but with a common theme, beautiful delicate ivory lace over vintage floral patterns (inspired by Valentino). I designed each dress with each girl’s personality in mind. The dresses were made by my aunt, Marina Rodriguez – seamstress and alterations specialist.

We had a two year engagement and I started planning the day after he proposed to me, so for two years I planned out every detail of our special day. Nancy DIYed pretty much everything, from the backdrop to garlands to all the calligraphy—which she taught herself. Her advice to DIY brides? Time management is key, especially when you only have weekends free.
