Melissa didn't have a specific theme in mind, but instead chose details that they both liked. The result was a vintage, natural celebration, filled with neutral tones and loads of personalization.

George proposed to Melissa just six months after their first date! The couple had known each other for years, growing up together in the same small town in Illinois.
Fun blue and white lettered menus outlined the late-night snacks at the reception. The chocolate pretzel pies and S'mores bar were a hit with guests of all ages.
Vests and neckties lent a timeless look to the groomsmen's attire.
Antique key bottle openers were ideal favors -- the couple's last name is Key!
Melissa's stunning Matthew Christopher Bardot gown had a sweetheart neckline and strips of tulle that flowed around the full ball gown.
The vintage style of the wedding spilled over into the attire, with the groomsmen wearing black tuxedos with vests and neckties, and the bridesmaids in neutral-colored gowns.
Chocolate pretzel pies were served up at the reception, and provided much needed fuel for those who had been on the dance floor all night.
Melissa provided her bridesmaids with basic instructions, and then let them choose dresses that had vintage flair and a bit of beading.
The evening ceremony was held in an outdoor courtyard at 5226 Elm. The area has lovely landscaping, so with the exception of string lights no extra decor was necessary.
The men wore masculine combinations of hypericum berries and seeded eucalyptus on their lapels.
At the end of the celebration, the newlyweds made their way to an antique limousine before heading off to their honeymoon in Colorado.
The couple took a spin to an Alicia Keys song for their first dance.
