Andrea's timeless grace and style made it clear that her classic essence needed to be reflected in her wedding day details. One such element was Andrea and Michael's custom created crest based off their new monogram. The crest was incorporated throughout the day as a traditional element appearing in surprisingly modern ways such as the tiny crest adorned flags in the reception's signature cotton candy martinis. Themes are another popular trend for 2011, and the bride and groom opted to tie in their crest throughout several facets of their big day including invitations, menus, and even their gorgeous cake.
Other vintage elements included "pale pink linens with floral applique cream overlays" and a "stunning family tree, covered with pictures of grandparents and parents and lit by garden lights." Including older black and white photos of your parents and grandparents on their wedding days is a simple yet chic way to add a vintage touch to your reception decor. In addition, pale colors, such as the pale pink linens used at the reception site, give the essence of classic taste without an outdated look.

Look for more vintage trends in 2011! Happy New Year!
