Hey lovely Brides-to-Be. DGM is starting a new feature called Real Brides to bring you the most up-to-date fashion, receptions, and details of real weddings. Know someone who might be interested? Have them email me their story with a few photos and we’ll add them to our list!
Lets meet the beautiful Chelcy! She married her high school sweetheart, Ben, in June 2010 at a beautiful ceremony site overlooking a lake in Texas. Chelcy’s wedding had small-town charm with big city vintage glam. What a great combination!
The bouquet arrangement is stunning! I’ve never seen one like this before and it compliments the lace on her dress. Also, props on the birdcage veil. Those are so hard to pull off and Chelcy looks beautiful!
What a fresh color for the bridesmaids, right? It makes the girls look beautiful while keeping Chelcy the center of attention. Their flowers add that bit of charm I was talking about earlier.
The men opted for a cream color suit rather than a traditional black tuxedo. I love that they match the sunset.
Can’t get enough of these chair decorations!
A sand ceremony is perfect for this outdoor, lake setting.
The perfect size train on her dress too, don’t you think?
oooooh! Beautiful, stunning centerpieces!
Love the pearls around the tealights!
The gift table. I’m not sure why I didn’t think to have a vintage birdcage at my wedding. It’s PERFECT!
Check out this kids’ table! Isn’t it the cutest, most fun thing you’ve ever seen!? I love the use of buckets as well as the lack of coloring books! What a creative, entertaining idea.
Now on to food. YUM! The cake matches her dress! Love it!
How sweet is this?! Ben and Chelcy sang to each other at their reception! *Note* Ben is a musician and wrote all of the arrangements for their ceremony! What a lucky girl Chelcy is!
Rose petals as you leave. Totally classy and environmentally friendly.
