You might have already seen this wedding recently here and here on Ruffled, but after seeing Jess and Mike’s wedding last week on Heather Waraksa’s blog I couldn’t resist posting it on Once Wed as well. I have such a soft spot for small and intimate weddings. There is just so much love and happiness beaming from the images below I knew it would be the perfect bit of inspiration for any couples out there considering eloping or a city hall wedding. Plus, how amazing is the bride’s vintage wedding dress and shoes?

I love her whole look! Kind of a hipster/vintage bride with a very natural vibe. Photography is amazing too – really captured the intimacy of the whole thing.

Gorgeous and so intimate!

Reminds me of shots from a Sophia Coppola movie, So hazy and dreamy. Simplicity is so beautiful!

Proof that extravagance doesn’t compete with personality!

I love the photos, so pretty. They truly capture this couple and at the same time they look like they jumped out of a fashion mag.
