A Vintage Wedding

The couple, yes deeply in love.  The photo says it all.  The first time they stepped foot into my shop "Restore & Rework" I could tell they didn't have a care in the world except that they would have each other.  They knew they had a date to get married and it was fast approaching.  With a ton of work still to do they had a need to create a vintage wedding and I obliged.  Glad I did, here is a snapshot of their day.  Loved working with both of them to prepare for this special occasion and I must say being my second wedding, I think I nailed it.

 At the park just after getting married, just lovely.  Of course I brought in a few things to help with the photo but really it is all them, they are just made for each other.

 While the guests and couple were at the wedding ceremony I prepared the reception a backyard vintage wedding reception with all the bells and whistles.  Sure there were some challenges but I thrived on all of them.  I designed my share of special touches just to their liking and used recycled and re purposed props for the occasion.

 Chalkboards made with old storage drawers and a water hose holder.

 Welcome guests, here is the itinerary for the day, enjoy.


Find your name and then look at the Domino for your table.  An original design by "Restore & Rework" using a oil pan an old ladder, glue and magnets.  It worked like a charm.

Ladders are so useful, a bare spot on the lawn now becomes a focal point.

As the guests arrived each table was designated with these numbers using recycled wood from a park bench.  Each table had it's own personality no two were the same, 16 tables in all I think the guests welcomed the display.

An idea created to accommodate photos of the couple.

Thank you deeply for the opportunity Matt and Leeanne I hope your day was as special as you expected it would be.  Cisco

  1. Cisco - I agree that you nailed it. So much attention to detail. The energy of love between two people can really fuel creativity, right? You are onto something here. Dusty and old, yet nostalgic and romantic - your "props" set a wonderful tone for a heartfelt event. Congratulations and thank you for sharing with us. I wouldn't change a thing you did. I am a big fan of flowers and they probably could have had a few more/bigger arrangements to compliment your pieces.
