Vintage Beach Wedding

A follow up to my below post...Lyndsey and Matt were married at Semiahmoo Resort & Spa in Blaine, Washington on a gorgeous sunny day. I had so much fun with them and the talented vendors that made the wedding amazing. Lyndsey is my cousin through marriage and such a delight! She owns a funky antique store in downtown Bellingham, Penny Lane Antiques, and has such a great sense of style from her clothing to her cute cornflower blue house decorated with vintage flair. I started planning their wedding a little over a year ago and am excited to share photos compliments of Michele M. Waite Photography. I am in love with Michele's breath taking photography! (check out her blog as well)





To pull together Lyndsey's creativity and her abundance of antiques into the wedding, design genius, Steven Moore came on board. Steven is my idol! Everything he dreams up and creates is unique, stunning and above and beyond expectations. The tent was transformed into a colorful beach oasis with elements including a vintage red bicycle, large coy fish swimming in tall cylinders, coral, custom sewn damask and burlap table runners, a hand painted chandelier, vintage sea life note cards, an array of bursting red floral and Lyndsey's aqua blue antique vases. It was the whimsical beach wedding Lyndsey had dreamed of.










Thank you Matt and Lyndsey for letting me play a role in your wedding. Hope you had fun on your wine tour honeymoon in Napa Valley!

  1. Gorgeous! I love that color combo. Especially love the red chandelier!

  2. What a lovely wedding - the colors are so fun, and the photos are beautiful!

  3. Wow! Just WOW! The pictures are beyond gorgeous... being there, though, I must say that a picture (or a few) just isn't enough to really grasp how stunning the reception was. There wasn't a detail that wasn't done to the nth degree. I'm a details girl, yet, everytime I looked around, I discovered a new angle or item of beauty. I only wish that YOU had been MY wedding planner those many years ago:). Kudos to you, Michelle, you are absolutely the most fabulous wedding planner on the West Coast!!!

  4. Gorgeous- period!
    P.s. love your new pic too - bellissima!

  5. HOLY SMOKES! There are so many elements to this wedding that I LOVE! First the photographs are awesome. Love the veil and bike, the blue and red details. Thanks for sharing. This needs to be featured in a magazine! Beautiful!

  6. Stunning, simply stunning! I love the vintage and eclectic feel of this wedding and red and blue is one of my favourite colour combinations! You did an outstanding job and as a previous posted stated, it is definitely magazine worthy.
