Wedding Madness: Theme selection

I love all things vintage. Cars, movies, music, dresses, aprons, furniture, you name it! When my step dad asked me where I wanted to go on vacation when I was 11, can you guess what my answer was? Graceland! Even as a kid I loved all things old, especially from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. So picking a theme for the wedding was a no brainer. I wanted a vintage 1950s styled wedding. It also helps that my wonderful fiance loves the classic look of vintage things as well! Here are some pictures that inspired me from around the web!

He popped the question! I'm ENGAGED!

April 11, 2014 the man of my dreams proposed to me in the most perfect way!
My senior sorority formal was a 1920's theme so we were all dressed up for the occasion, Andrew (or Drew as I call him) in a suit complete with suspenders and bow tie, and I wore a long black beaded gown and a jeweled headband across my forehead flapper style.
The formal was held on a rooftop in downtown Oklahoma City and the evening was perfect, not too hot or cold. Little did I know Drew had conspired with my roommates (who are also in my sorority) to spread the word that when the song "At Last" by Etta James came on to form a big circle around the dance floor.
Well if you can't tell, I burst into happy tears! It was the most perfect engagement I could have ever imagined. 
The ring is absolutely perfect. The center stone was the stone in my moms ring from my dad so it had sentimental value. The setting has a vintage feel about it which I love. 

So now the planning begins! Stayed tuned to go along with me in the wedding planning process!
