If Emily Henderson was naming the design style of this wedding, I am betting she would go with "Vintage Airmail Americana." Talented and creative duo Lina and Sante embarked on their engagement with a long list of vintage shops to hit and DIY projects to knock out of the park. I had the honor of serving as their day of wedding coordinator, helping it all come together.
Rather than pay to rent pricey tableware from their caterer, Lina and Sante combined their own family china with pieces they collected from antique stores and ebay.
Taking the DC theme by storm, Lina collected vintage DC post cards which were included in each reception place setting so guests could write the couple a love note in lieu of signing a traditional guest book.
All pictures features here are either my own, or by their fabulous wedding photographer, Anne Robert Photography. psst, she takes her pictures with film!

a little note from me to you:
I am excited to finally be launching "parties" on my blog. The page has been chilling in my top nav bar for months. While I have a few back parties to share with you, idea boards I have completed for friends and clients, and even more exciting ideas planned, I haven't had the bandwidth to get this up and running. So with the new year, I figured I would make the push and give it a go. And this wedding is especially near and dear because while decorating this venue, my brain starting spinning about Behr's first birthday party, which is this Saturday! I cannot wait to share that with you next week.
p.s. can you believe that my itty bitty baby will be ONE on thursday?
