If you’re planning a vintage wedding, you won’t want to miss today’s Real Vintage Wedding feature! Corey and Matt’s New Haven, Connecticut wedding was beautifully styled with DIY details and plenty of vintage wedding accents. The bridesmaid dresses were all handmade by Soho Mode using vintage fabrics, the bride sewed vintage hanky bunting to display in the reception room, vintage pins were used for the table seating chart, and field flowers were displayed in tea tins for chic vintage wedding centerpieces. Instead of a wedding cake, the couple used one huge cupcake and used vintage hand-stamped forks (“I Do” and “Me Too”) with a small photo placed between the prongs of the forks. Their wedding photographer – Michelle of Michelle Gardella Photography – beautifully captured the day from start to finish. She tells us, “Corey and Matt are one of those couples that truly make this world a better place, simply by being in it. Their love for one another completely lit up the entire day, and even complete strangers on Yale’s campus stopped and swooned. While their wedding was filled with wonderful details, and meaningful decorative touches, what I love most about this day is that the focus was on what really matters- love and family.” We couldn’t agree more. Read on to see how their vintage wedding day unfolded after the jump!

Michelle also tells us, “Truth be told, it was completely freezing that day. But nobody seemed to notice. Not one person complained. Because really, it’s impossible to be anything but happy when you’re around a love like this.”
