Handmade Wedding in Huntington: Missy + Jason

Posted October 31, 2011 | 9 Comments

Missy and Jason’s handmade wedding in Huntington, WV was filled with magnificently crafted details. Their handmade wedding started with a ceremony at Verde Farm, a beautifully landscaped farm with intimate settings for the sophisticated bride and groom. With a vintage feeling handmade wedding in mind, this couple incorporated a wishing tree with hanging tags, mason jars with lace and flowers, and handmade burlap and lace flower girl buckets with button details. Two other handmade details handily crafted by the bride were fabric bunting banners and curtains, along with handmade shaped programs that doubled as fans for guests with which to stay cool. Capturing Missy and Jason’s handmade wedding in Huntington with detail was storyteller photographer Kelli Dailey from Third Line Studios. Kelli fills us in on more wedding day details after the jump…

Kelli tells us, “The bridesmaids wore 3 different dresses and carried parasol umbrellas. The flower girl’s parasol was from Etsy and read “Here Comes The Bride”. The centerpieces at the reception consisted of various vintage items collected by the bride from thrift and antique stores, including lace doilies, milk glass vases with flowers, tea cups, old books, typewriters, dress forms with pearls, bird cages, and more. Their first dance was a surprise to the groom where the bride had recorded herself playing the guitar and singing the song “Feels Like Home”. The wine served at the wedding was purchased in California from multiple vineyards while the bride was living there for a 10-month contract job.”

Favors: Shortbread cookies shaped like vintage buttons baked by
Cindy Barker at For Goodness Cakes and wrapped by the bride and bridal party with parchment paper with tied ribbons and handmade tags.
