A Vintage Collegiate Wedding

If there was a trophy to be given for the most unique wedding theme {while still keeping it classy}, Alison and Chris would surely be the proud owners. When they first described the vision for their Norman Rockwell inspired or "Vintage Collegiate" Wedding, we fell in love. The couple had the help of Ritzy Bee Events to design and coordinate this incredible affair that took place at the Dumbarton House in Georgetown, DC. They incorporated unique elements to reflect history, one of which was an actual vintage postcard from Washington, DC that was used for their RSVP cards, and then displayed at the reception along with a variety of other old trinkets. Alison and Chris chose to use vintage stamps with their invitation suite, each one carefully selected to fit the theme and reflect themselves... a Dolly Madison stamp relating to the Dumbarton House, a Maine stamp representing where the groom is from, an Indiana stamp for where the bride is from, in addition to a variety of other DC related ones.We absolutely LOVED their idea of making monogram buttons to attach to little bags of cookies as wedding favors... pretty much everything about this wedding was adorable. The attention to detail in every area made their day glitter. We hope to be able to share some other fun details at some point, but for now, enjoy these pics!
