I recently stumbled upon the beautiful photography of Meg Kroeker while perusing ffffound one day a couple weeks ago and immediately sent her an email asking if I could share more of her work on Once Wed. I was of course absolutely thrilled when I received an email back with a link of images from the wedding of Steph and Emery below. How can you resist any wedding where the bridesmaids where vintage prom dresses?

So inspiring. She must have some secret sources, though, because I see a lot of vintage clothes and I don’t run across a lot of dresses like that. Beautiful.

The colours remind me of the Mari Antoinette film and the whole wedding has a very cool vintage vibe.

I was so shocked (& flattered!) when some of my friend’s stumbled upon my wedding photos on this blog! That is so awesome, I am glad you all share my appreciation for vintage! Thank you thank you!

Lots of questions about the bridesmaids’ dresses.. let me tell you, that was the trickiest part! I wanted the wedding to have an eccentric vintage feel (think: Marie Antoinette) So, my bridesmaids’ dress criteria consisted of: dresses in different pastel colors (peach and baby blue were our wedding colors!), similar styles & fabrics (lots of tuelle!), and all from the same era (about 1950’s-1960’s or so!) This proved to be the trickiest part.. but so worth all the efforts we put into finding them!

The blue one was actually found at a small town thrift store for less than ten dollars, what a find! The peach one I had found months earlier, (and originally purchased for myself!) at a local vintage store. The purple one was also a second hand store find! After we found all the dresses my mother-in-law did some minor alterations on them, such as hemming them all to just below the knee, so that they were all the same length.

My advice for those of you looking for unique one-of-a-kind vintage dresses: be persistent with checking your local Goodwill or second hand stores! All of these dresses were easily under $100.. I think even under $70! It’s fun to break from the tradition of having all matching dresses in matching colors!

We are so pleased with everything! The photos turned out amazing! We wouldn’t change a thing.

Good luck with your planning!

This is very inspirational indeed. It’s a style I don’t think I’ve ever seen adopted over here in the UK. The mix of vintage and punchy color images (instead of B&W) make this work in my opinion.

The bridesmaids colors are so pretty- they remind me of the fairies in Sleeping Beauty!

This is the most beautiful wedding ever! I am so inspired by this. My fiance and I are getting married in a theatre and we are going for the vintage look. We want the same suits for the men! And the bridesmaid dresses are so incredible! Stunning! The bride beautiful. Breathtaking. Incredible!
