Vintage Irish

So I've been quite busy lately preparing for a big move and our wedding.  I'm finally ready,and have a few moments, to show a few sneak peeks of the fruit of my labors.  Here are some pictures of the wedding elements.  Thank the Lord, it is coming together, piece by piece.  Only a few more weeks to go!  It will be an exciting time as I start a new life in a new place with the sweetest man in the world.
I adore my invitations, made by They were designed by my talented sister-in-law, Aly. They were printed on an antique printing press on handmade paper with antique ink, salvaged from an old print shop.

A tiny peek of my dress. I'm wearing my mother's dress that I altered.
My ringbearer's  moss shamrock "pillow".
I collect vintage postcards and I love these tissue paper flowers that were made for the Wedding Shower that my church family threw for my fiance' and me. I bought an antique hankie that had green lace edging and hand embroidered our initial on it.


  1. Please ignore the off-center cut on the invitation. I mailed all my good invitations, this was just an extra boo-boo one. Jake at Le Paper would never put out a real invite w/ that error.

  2. LOVELY! These photos are all so beautiful! I love that the invitations are printed on an antique press with salvaged ink! How amazing! Love the shamrock as well and the dress will be great! Many wishes for the start of a wonderful life together!
