My dear friend's Apple and Martín got married last weekend and I was honored to be a guest/coordinator at their vintage inspired wedding. For this wedding, style was everything. Apple's dress was a tea length, lace, 1950s original. She paired it with mustard yellow heels, and when it got chilly, a brown leather bomber jacket. Very cool, right? It gets better. The bridesmaids wore handmade cotton dresses from Etsy, the groomsmen were all in bow ties that Apple made and grey cardigans, and Apple and her bridesmaids carried gorgeous fabric bouquets. Also made by Apple! Here's a look--I was able to take some Instagram shots. Aren't they adorable? And that cake plate...you guessed it, made by Apple. 2 vintage plates, one vintage vase, hot glue...voila! Here's a comprehensive list of everything Apple made for her wedding, and that her amazing bridal party helped me set up:
DIY -Bow ties for the groom and groomsmen -Bow tie necklaces for the bridesmaids (so cute!) -Bow tie, cuffs, ring pillow for the canine 'flower girl' -Fabric flower bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids -Pocket square for the groom -Fabric flower centerpieces -Yarn wrapped small vases and mason jars and votives for mis-matched centerpieces and accent decor -Tiered vintage cake plates -All invitations and signage w craft paper and stamps -The table numbers -Fabric pompom flower garlands for the walls of the reception room and the bar -A 'guestbook' made of fabric squares for guests to write little notes, then pin on a clothesline strung up in the bar -Large fabric hand painted bows for every dining chair -All props and signage for the photobooth -Escort card favors that included goat's milk soap from Etsy and small bingo cards for the game played later in the reception
The reception was at the Fort Mason Center Conference Center and was catered by Villa Del Sol. The location was a perfect mix of San Francisco charm and blank-slate-DIY-possibility. I had a wonderful time and I'm so happy for my friends. Congratulations, Apple and Martín!
