Today we are featuring a darling DIY Vintage Carnival Wedding shot by Aria Photography. Many of the details were created and crafted by the bride and her family…. the “enter signs”, pendents, windmills, tissue-ball-pom-poms, circle signs, the mailbox, orange “Photo Opp” wall with turquoise vintage frames… all of these little details added to the environment of the vintage-carnival theme perfectly! I love it when a bride gets really involved with the planning of her wedding and puts a lot of time and thought into every aspect of the event!

How they met: We met through Myspace 3.5 years ago! Yes, that’s a true story! We had a mutual friend, and started talking online for about a month. We met in person with a group of friends, then started dating very shortly after that! We dated for 3 years and 5 months before we were engaged!
Best part of the evening: The best part of the evening was definitely when everyone was dancing at the end of our reception! No one seems to really dance at weddings, but everyone danced at ours, and it was a blast! I loved celebrating like that with all of the people I love!
