Monday Vintage Finds: Kristin + Patrick’s Vintage Inspired Elopement in Austin, TX

So this isn’t just a regular ol’ Monday Vintage Find … it’s a super special one because we get to take a look at one amaaazing elopement that incorporated a number of vintage elements all pulled together with beauty, grace and style. Between the boutiqe hotel venue, the rad vintage car, the divine shoes and all the vintage touches, I’m in bliss …

From the bride, Kristin:
Tell us about your wedding style …
I used the classic 1950s style as our inspiration. We also tried to keep things very simple and personal. Our friend and photographer, Paige, styled the wedding with her own things. She did a wonderful job.

Personal touches?
I think that the most personal thing was our brooch bouquet. We found almost all of the brooches ourselves at antique and thrift stores. Amanda then put the bouquet together for us. Another personal touch was that we created the ceremony ourselves with the help of our minister. Patrick wrote a poem and we each wrote our own vows. It was so special.

Favorite part of the wedding day?
It would have to be right after the ceremony when Patrick and I went inside our hotel room for a few minutes and reflected on the importance of the day. We then rejoined our friends as David played our favorite song.

Advice for brides?
Don’t get so caught up in the details that you forget to have fun and live in the moment. I highly recommend a creative videographer. I love looking back on our wedding.
