Real wedding: Kate + Nick

Categories   Real Weddings

We have Kate’s pretty wedding to share today. Remember her beautiful invites? There’s more paper pretties tucked into this post too.

We’re massive fans of Kate’s blog Wit + Delight. You all must know it too, yes? She has such a beautiful, curated style. And her wedding is the same: classic and romantic, but not stuffy in any way. Check out her lovely wedding inspiration also!


Kate collected vintage keys, tied with perfectly designed personal tags, for her escort cards. She hung them on large antique picture frames at the foot of the stairs. Isn’t her take so perfectly sophisticated?

Mix and match silver, vintage china, different centerpieces for every table… strewn with acorns and other lovely bits… Pretty pretty.

And how sweet is their lil video below?

Thank you so much for sharing your day with us, Kate! Congrats to you and Nick!

You know what makes me so happy about this wedding? The bride has the most beautiful blog filled with gorgeous details and yet she kept her wedding so simple! Of course there are so many beautiful details present but its their love for one another that shows through the most! NOT, all the kitschy and gimmicky details. Best of luck to the new couple! You look beautiful:)

I love the old keys and vintage place settings. Your choice of the old car for your ride is much nicer than a traditional black stretch limo!

Kate and Nick spent many months collecting every special detail and garnish for their wedding day celebration. Their kindness and graciousness was truly appreciated by all the vendors that helped them in the planning process. The love from their parents, family and friends truly shown through on the wedding day! I felt honored to help them "plan" for this fabulous day!

I really enjoy seeing the photos. The one I liked the most was the one where the couple is kissing inside the car and the photo was taken from outside. It was like a movie scene kind thing. Another I really enjoyed was the one with the old keys. But all in all, every photo has a story and it was fun watching the whole album.
