Real Wedding: KIM + PHIL Photography

I always love a sweet vintage inspired wedding, and this one is at the top of my list!  Everything from the 1920's inspired flapper dress, to the vintage Buick and to those amazing handmade paper flowers, is beautifully detailed to capture the essence of the roaring twenties!  Here is what the bride, Charlene had to say:

We were inspired by the "no care" attitude & "just have fun" vibe of the 1920s.  We both loved the story of The Great Gatsby, and how carefree everyone seemed whenever they'd go to one of Gatsby's parties. We wanted to create that kind of laid-back, fun atmosphere. The Dunsmuir Estate fit the bill perfectly for that, and since it was more like a park rather than a hotel banquet hall, it allowed us to have a more casual feel for our wedding. We encouraged people to just be comfortable; even to sit on the grass on picnic blankets. For our give-away/dessert table, we wanted people to take home things they might actually want and use, and as far as we know, nobody minded free sodas, cookies, candies and coffee grinds! =)

So fabulous!
