the girl next door

intimate vintage wedding

There is something so romantic and ‘hollywood movieish’ about falling in love with the girl next door, growing up, asking her to marry you, and having an intimate lakeside cottage wedding. There must be a movie about that somewhere, I just can’t think of it. Intimate, home style weddings lend themselves perfectly to unique floral details and accessories, and here are a few of the best ideas out there:

  1. So sweet! Love all the floral elements, and this kinda makes me want to have a wedding do-over just to take photos at that little fishing shack!

    • LOL wedding do-over 😉 you should see how often I bug my husband for a vow renewal now that I’m posting all these ideas!

  2. Is that the bridal’s wedding dress… such beautiful wedding dress, jealous of her.
