Amanda and Michael
Vintage Glam Wedding
With the help of their loved ones, Amanda + Michael spent practically every day of their two-year engagement designing and collecting and crafting away. From the elegant invitation suite to the fabric and lace flowers to Amanda’s absolutely stunning gown, almost every gorgeous little detail in this Seattle soiree was a DIY.
"I spent the first three months of our engagement drooling over wedding blogs and the billion wedding magazines I had collected since being a little girl. I found myself gravitating towards something timeless with a neutral and metallic palette. I then asked Mike what he wanted our theme to be and he said with serious enthusiasm, “Indian Jones.” The world stopped and for a brief second I thought, “What did I get myself into?” After many questions trying to get to the bottom of what about Indian Jones he liked, we came to the conclusion it was the time period. The late ‘20s and early ‘30s—how well-made everything was, how dapper the men looked and glamorous the women, the attention to detail—and so our vintage Hollywood glam theme was born."
"My dress was made from start to finish by my mom, a seamstress turned chocolatier. She executed my vision beautifully, and hands down beat out every high-end gown I tried on. From the fabrics to hand-beading the bodice (yes she beaded the entire thing!) and the embroidered blue heart from my dad’s shirt who passed away unexpectedly the September before, I literally could not imagine anything more stunning."
