Real Wedding: Angie and Tyson

Sunday, September 26, 2010

































All I can say is $5.
$5 is what Angie, this stunning bride, paid for her wedding gown.

Five Dollars!

Now that I've gotten that out of my system, I am free to chat about all the other things I love about this wedding, which include the flowers, the reception, the kazoos, the bridesmaids dresses, the dreamy photos, her bow ring and that wedding gown. How, you might ask, does one find a five dollar wedding gown? The bride purchased it (and its matching veil) at a vintage store that charges by the pound-luckily tulle is light.

Angie and Tyson were so set on KampPhotography as their wedding photographers that they actually moved the date of their wedding; while it sounds a little crazy, I can't imagine more beautiful photographs. I completely applaud their decision. They were married in Angie's parents' yard and Tyson's brother officiated the ceremony, ensuring this was an intimate, family affair.

Tyson is a talented artist who designed the papers and many of the wedding's other charming details. Angie, a Montreal-based clothing designer for Norwegian Wood, made all the lovely bridesmaids' dresses with fabric from QuiltHome; the same fabric served as placemats at the reception. The bride wore vintage jewelry and a favorite leather belt-have you ever seen a more stylish bride? Those charming war medals the bridal party wore were actually all designed by the creative bride and her friend, then laser cut by Mike of furni. Each featured the first initial of the wearer and made an absolutely lovely tribute to their participation in Angie and Tyson's wedding.

In keeping with this wedding's homemade feel, Angie's sister Pam baked their adorable cake. Red velvet cupcakes were baked with a Design*Sponge recipe by close friends and Etsy-ers, and Grandma Johnson's famous popcorn balls were prominently featured on the dessert table.


Before the ceremony, the bride and her 'maids collected wildflowers from her parents' yard: foxtails, bullrushes, grasses, canola and nasturtiums, then supplemented them with asters and astramaris from the local grocery for color. The reception featured chairs from the local town hall and savory treats from Naleway Catering, a company Tyson once worked for!

  1. wow wow, i love everything about that wedding and the pics are great...a little nutty to move the date of your wedding for a photographer but the pictures are breathtaking so I guess in this instance it made sense.
