Our vintage WEDDING...

A lot of people ask us about our wedding. So I have decided to made a "small" post about it.

My husband and I have known each other for 15 years but we married in April 2006 when we bought our home sweet home.
We choose to have a small wedding, not a big event where you must invite all your cousins and parents friends with whom you have nothing in common. Only our witnesses, brothers, sisters in law and parents.

Of course our wedding was vintage inspired!!!

The party took place in a lovely small 50's hotel with a great view of the city, Thionville.

There were 2 vintage cars for our wedding. The bride's car was a 55 Cadillac Convertible and the broom's car was our 59 Cadillac specialy decorated for this great day!

It was a windy but sunny day. I was really proud of my bouquet with beautiful soft colors matching with my dress and some pearls to match my wedding ring, so romantic!

So let's speak about the most important thing for a girl: her wedding dress!!! Mine was not a real wedding dress, but a light pink vintage prom dress from the 50's with a matching stole. My shoes were 50's lucite and gold leather high heels, I realize that I have no pictures of them from this day... I was wearing silk white flowers on my hairs, white gloves and pearl jewels. I also had a white rabbit fur stole for the evening, also from the 50's.

The groom was also really elegant with his brown 50's suit. I don't know if you notice his 40's silk tie with 2 HEARTS, perfect for a wedding...

The most outstanding feature of this wedding it's that it was organized in only 3 weeks!!!! Fortunatly it was early Spring so we could chose the restaurant we wanted. I already had the dress, so I just had to look for accessories.
