A Vintage Themed Wedding: Kelsey and Chris

There is something about a vintage themed wedding that is all the more heart warming and romantic.  Maybe it is the added sentimentality that goes with the vintage decor or thoughts of simpler times…..

Let me just show you what I mean!

Let’s walk into the reception!

wedding cake and centerpiece

wedding cake by Bakers Nook - Ann Arbor, MI

The bases for the wedding cake and the centerpieces were made from layers of two by fours that were glued and bolted together.  The initials were branded right into the wood from a custom branding iron that was made by the father of the bride.  He welded the pieces together to create the brand and then heated the iron in a camp fire to sear the wood.
