DIY Vintage Carnival Wedding by Yvonne Wong Photography

This wedding is going to steal your heart with its sweetness and ounces of fun. Sent over by the incredibly talented Yvonne Wong, the bride and groom threw together the best DIY vintage carnival themed wedding I've ever seen. And as if the bride's sweet little dress, hand designed and printed invitation suite (OK she hand designed and printed everything herself), and bouquet wasn't cute enough, due to time constraints the day of, Yvonne treated the pair to a day after session. With vintage his and her bikes. And that same little white dress. Oh lovely day! There are far too many details from this gem of a celebration for me to keep rambling on. Enjoy the prettiness guys and enjoy your Thursday! I am off to find some fabulous new additions to my girl cave. You know, the one I shared over here :)


{From the Bride, Yun} The ceremony and reception was held at Eva Restaurant in Seattle. We invited about 50 guests and it was a cozy and intimate affair. Adam and I decided on a vintage carnival theme. I designed the Save the Dates and invitations and printed them on my little Gocce screen print machine. My in-laws went the day before to buy flowers at Pikes Place Market and everybody pitched in to make the bouquets and floral arrangements. I made the little flags (printed and glued) for guests to grab after signing in at the guest book, created little tags that said "Tears of Joy" and tied them around bundles of tissue, hung up homemade bunting, and bought "ole time" candy and put them in glassine bags. Part of the fun came from the combination of the photo booth provided by Yvonne and the wax mustaches in the favor bags. Hilarity ensued! I even made a little dumbbell weight to add to the carnival theme. Needless to say, it was a big hit with guests. I think this wedding is a testament to the DIY spirit. Anything can be done with a little creativity and a good printer! The day after the shoot was casual with our vintage bikes (his/her bikes from Craigslist). So fun!
