It's been a while since we've featured a real wedding here on Always a Bridesmaid, and this one is one of my faves. The bride and groom are adorable, from her handmade headpiece, cut-out shoes, and David's Bridal dress down to his facial scruff and vest, and they planned a unique event that feels fresh, cozy, and classic. My favorite details are the handmade altar--those hanging frames are incredible--and a created cigar lounge for the men (the bride's idea!). Also to love is the fact that her bridesmaids helped serve family style dishes, the chairs making up the head table were vintage and mismatched, and various self-selected lamps and candle sticks adorned the dessert and guests tables. For more gorgeous photos (and an unending wealth of inspiring wedding ideas), head over to Green Wedding Shoes, and for the full story of this wedding, head to the amazingly talented Kristen Marie's blog, who is responsible for all the incredible photography (find her photography site here).
