almost three years ago to the day, i was involved in a collaborative project to help throw a free wedding.
many of the vendors from the notwedding that year decided to throw a contest to award a wedding to couples who applied and the one that got the most votes would win a complete wedding – free of charge.
i was a pair of helping hands at the notwedding that march (more to share on that soon), and was asked to come on board when they were in need of a wedding dress. in their minds, the perfect dress was light, airy, full of beautiful details – and sky blue. (it’s not every day you find a sky blue wedding dress!) starting with an old vintage slip that we found in east atlanta, and several yards of sky blue silk chiffon, we began cutting and draping a dress. along the way, i helped make a ring pillow and hand-bound the guest book which was covered in a vintage piece of cloth.
the day was sweet and such a fun celebration to be a part of. the vendors came together in a fun collaboration of whimsy, charm, and sweet romance, which was everything this couple was about.
it was such a pleasure to get to know and celebrate kaitlyn and sam. enjoy the pictures below, and if you want to see even more images from our labor of love, it was featured on oncewed here and here (and more).
