Happy Tuesday! We hope you had a lovely holiday weekend! Yesterday may have been the unofficial end to summer, but we are still holding on tight over here! Athena and Ray’s wedding in Virginia has everything a summer affair needs. A beautiful outdoor setting, a ton of gorgeous florals and a set of DIY (by the groom!) stationery that will knock your socks off. Soak in all the summer pretty while you can! And, don’t forget to join us later this morning to see more from their sweet summer wedding captured by Spence Photographics and planned by Pretty Entertaining.
From Athena: We wanted a classic, timeless wedding. The majority of the vintage decor came from Ray’s grandparents who frequented auctions. It was really special to be able to use some of their things in our wedding. We went with a very classic color scheme (white, green, and navy). Most of the inspiration came from Pinterest (of course!), but I wanted to make sure that it was still unique and not the typical Pinterest wedding.
