Over the past couple of years I have been to an incredible amount of weddings. You know how you get to that age where EVERYONE you know is getting married? Well, I’m of that age where everyone is either getting married or having a baby.

Each wedding is special and beautiful and has their own personal style. Recently, I attended a wedding of my dear friend Brittany Adams (remember all those blog posts of myself and those cutie girls on our bachelorette trip). Brittany has an amazing sense of style and a fabulous personality and it really was captured by her wedding. I was so inspired by her wedding that I’ve decided to do a little mini-series of posts. I’d describe it as an elegant vintage, rustic wedding. I hope you enjoy – it’s truly WEDDING EYE-CANDY!

Don’t forget to follow my “Tying of the Knot” Pinterest board.

The wedding took place in Dallas, Texas in the beautiful gardens of Marie Gabrielle. The wedding had an elegant, vintage rustic style. Brittany said, “We wanted a look that was elegantly rustic and felt organic. Not country at all, but more of an elegant vintage garden. Jamie and I are both city dwellers, but also very outdoorsy, so we wanted a look that displayed sophistication without glitz.”

Moss-detailed invitations from Southern Fried Paper set the tone for the wedding.

Wedding programs in the shape of fans came in handy during the outdoor ceremony.

The check-in table had two vintage typewriters for attendees to type their name for the guest book.

Brittany has the sweetest Daddy. He surprised Brittany with these amazing mid-19th century, stained glass windows from a church in Wisconsin that was being torn down. They turned the ceremony area in to a breathtaking outdoor church.

The aisle was covered in rose petals in an ombre effect.

Here comes the bride! Dress by Reem Acra from Stanley Korshak. Her veil is a custom design from Stanley Korshak.

Bridesmaid dresses are from J. Crew.

The dapper dudes! Love the bowties and suspenders!

Amazing bouquets by floral designer, Bows & Arrows.

The boutonnières were mixes of flowers and succulents.

The flower girl and ring bearer walked downt the aisle holding a banner.

Just awe-inspiring right!?! Part 2 of this amazing wedding coming up later this week! Come back for more wedding eye-candy!

This is my sTORI being written as you read. – Love, Mommy Tori

        Were the stained glass windows a copy from a specific place of worship?
        If so which which church?
        If not are there any specific pictures of just the windows?

        These were from an old church that the father of the bride found. Unfortunately, I don’t have any other picture of them.

    I am obsessed with the stained glass windows!! Any way I could be connected with the brides family to see about purchasing from them? I am getting married in April of 2020 and am looking to recreate this effect!!
