A Romantic, Vintage Charm Real Wedding With Gorgeous Claire Pettibone Bride

I have the. most. beautiful. wedding to share with you all today. A romantic, vintage charm real wedding. The gorgeous bride looked sensational in her embroidered Claire Pettibone gown and I love the addition of the boho style rose gold head jewellery.

There really are so many gorgeous details in this wedding and Tara and Paul make one helluva good-looking bride and groom.

A Romantic, Vintage Charm Real Wedding With Gorgeous Claire Pettibone Bride

Our wedding venue, Alder Manor, Yonkers in New York had the exactly the vintage feel I was searching for,  it was perfectly imperfect and our wedding just had to be there.

 Claire Pettibone herself customized the ‘Kristene’ gown for me with an open, embroidered back.  I knew the dress would compliment the vintage vibe of Alder Manor perfectly.

Hearing Paul speak the vows he had written was one of the most memorable moments of our day.  Also, our family and friends forming a tight circle around us and screaming the lyrics to “halo” at the top of their lungs during our first dance was pretty amazing too!

One of the things I absolutely adore about this wedding is not only the fact that it’s gorgeous but, it ended with what looks like, a bloody good party! One of my favourite moments of my own wedding day [after the vows and getting married of course] was the party. It’s probably one of the few times you’ll have everyone you love all together to rock on out!

I’d like to say a massive thank you to talented wedding photographer Dan O’ Day for sharing his beautiful work and a huge congrats to Tara and Paul, I hope married life is treating you well :)

Please do leave the happy couple some blog lovin.
