Anissa wanted to support other artists, so she chose gifts and accessories from her favorite Etsy shops.

“Russ and I are closet romantics,” says the bride. They played Louis Armstrong’s La Vie En Rose for their first dance.
Russ wore a red-tipped carnation and blue eucalyptus and his groomsmen sported red gerbera daisies on their lapels.
At sunset, guests made a beautiful arch from sparklers that were tagged with the couple’s names and wedding date.
Blue agave, red carnations and colorful paper pom poms combined with bamboo plates and mod napkins for a festive, garden-style tablescape.
Red garden roses, tulips and dahlias popped against the bridesmaids’ blue dresses, while sprigs of blue eucalyptus tied in perfectly with the fabric.
The guys wore patterned, Tiffany-blue ties with blue vests and crisp, ivory suits. Russ represented his Texas roots with a pair of freshly-polished cowboy boots.
Vintage Cocktail Hour Ideas
