Through decorating with a soft palette and elegant decor, a classic wedding filled with a touch of vintage came to life at Ivy Hills Country Club in Newtown, Ohio—just as Jen Koehler (26 and in hospitality management) and Zac Koehler (26 and a US Air Force pilot) had envisioned for their nuptials. "We were going for an early-1900s feel, and we thought the carriage house and the clubhouse with grand rooms, tall ceilings and detailed woodwork emulated all the grandeur of those eras," Jen says. The dress Jen wore embodied the classic style of the wedding: an ivory Maggie Sottero dress with a bodice covered in beaded detail. Her veil trimmed with rhinestones matched the dress beautifully, and she jazzed up her look with a pair of gold sparkly heels. Baby's breath in glass mason jars lined the ceremonial aisle, leading to a large tree with a beautiful backdrop of the country club's landscaping. Inside the venue, white flowers mixed with greenery decorated the middle of dining tables, surrounded by tall white candles that added a romantic glow. In addition to the intricate spread of candies, guests indulged in the the two-tier white wedding cake with silver art deco designs depicted on its surface—our favorite detail of the day. See all the other vintage-inspired details we loved at this classic occasion, below.

Jen's silver engagement ring rested among the wedding rings exchanged at the ceremony. "The ring is a gorgeous emerald-cut stone with a vintage-inspired halo and a solid, palladium band," Jen says. "Zac built and designed the ring all himself, and it still takes my breath away."
The ivory V-neck dress had a bodice accented in beads and lace, which reminded Jen of a 1930s style. The dress fell elegantly to the floor, designed by none other than Maggie Sottero.
The bright blue halter-style bridesmaid dresses stood out from the wedding day's soft palette. " I chose a peacock blue for the bridesmaid dresses because peacocks were all the rage in the 1920s, and I thought the blue would look beautiful against the greenery backdrop of our outdoor ceremony," Jen says.

Jen loved the look of calla lilies and made the bridal bouquet and all the bridesmaid bouquets just that. Beautiful white calla lilies and green leaves embodied an elegant look, tied together with a gold ribbon wrap.
Jen and Zac joined hands in front of the large tree where they got married in front of friends at family at Ivy Hills Country Club in Newtown, Ohio. The beautiful landscaped scenery served as the perfect backdrop for the occasion.
The white folding chairs that lined the aisle at the outdoor ceremony had mason jars hanging from blue ribbon. A collection of baby's breath filled out the glass mason jars—a classic flower for a classic wedding.
Jen picked out a medium-length white tulle veil made of (and trimmed with) rhinestones, which blended in well with her classic ivory wedding dress accented with rhinestones on the front.

Centerpieces filled with white roses, hydrangeas and baby's breath elegantly decorated white-covered dining table tops at the reception.
In addition to the classic wedding cake, a candy bar had all kinds of sweets and treats for guests to enjoy. A large "K" in gold sparkles and feathers decorated the back of the display, adding a touch of vintage style to the mix.
The art deco-inspired wedding cake really embodied the theme of the day. Two white tiers decorated with the vintage design sat on top of a blue cake stand with dangling crystals.
