Vintage Wedding: Corey + Matt Tie the Knot!

Posted April 12, 2013 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 4 Comments

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!

Bridal Hair Style: Twisted Bun

Posted August 31, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

One of my favorite sources of hair inspiration is The Beauty Department, a beautiful blog run by the lovely trio of Lauren Conrad, Kristin Ess, and Amy Nadine. These ladies showcase easy-to-follow beauty tips with my favorite being the hairstyle ideas. These easy-to-follow tutorials cover tips such as to blow-dry properly (avoiding cowlicks and frizz) and how to get party-ready hair. My hair used to be very short and over the last year and a half I finally grew it out past my shoulders. It’s fun to have the length to finally try out new hairstyles (like these braided ones that I adore) and share bridal hairstyle ideas with our readers. Today, we’re sharing this bridal hair style which is a type of twisted bun. It was spotted via The Beauty Department and will look great for your wedding day (or bridal shower, engagement party, rehearsal…). Give it a go at home a few times or ask your hairstylist to assist. With your wedding day hairstyle, it’s always a good idea to do a trial run to make sure it’s the look you love before the big day. Take a peek…
