Vintage Glam Weddings Blog

I received an email from Naomi today, that she submitted the images from her wedding  to a Vintage Glam Weddings blog and Amanda, the editor decided to feature them. I’m glad I was able to capture all the details and decorations Naomi and her sisters made. They are so creative. Naomi told me that this blog was her favorite place to look for inspiration when she was planning her wedding. Now by sharing the images from her wedding day she can be an inspiration for other brides. If you are a person who loves to be involved in creating unique, handmade wedding decorations, loves vintage inspired weddings and needs some ideas, definitely check  Vintage Glam Weddings blog.

Naomi & Florin | Wedding

I thought that if you had a wedding in May you could be sure the weather would be perfect. Well, I was wrong. Last Saturday was cloudy, rainy and cold. I woke up and I was thinking how unpredictable weather is, just like life. You never know what a new day is going to bring. We can plan our lives, but each day can surprise us with something we never expected.  Naomi and Florin, we had a great time with you and your family. You all were so friendly, kind and happy. It was a pleasure for Paul and I to document your wedding day. As for the weather, it seemed like nobody even noticed how cold it was outside. We wish you a lot of love, happiness and many sunny days :-).
Naomi put a lot of work into making all the details and decorations look so great. Her sisters helped with the flowers. They made those beautiful bouquets:

Oh… how I liked Naomi’s dress. I so wanted to try it on. It’s from David’s Bridal. Design: Oleg Cassini.

Naomi’s shoes (by Irregular Choice) were very unique and beautiful. Green is her favorite color.

This beautiful feather clip was made by Jennypickle.

Jules from “Makeup By Jules” did a great job with Naomi’s makeup.  Her new website hasn’t been launched yet, but you can contact her via email: jules at makeupbyjules dot com.

While I was photographing Naomi, Paul went to boy’s room to take pictures of them getting ready.

Ceremony took place in Elim Romanian Pentecostal Church

Naomi and Florin chose White Eagle Banquets for their reception. We liked this place. Elegant interior and good food!

  • Vintage Beautiful « - [...] May 22, 2009 by Michelle Found these absolutely gorgeous photos from Ana Guziak’s blog [...]

  • Anna - Hi Kit,
    The dress was from David’s Bridal. It is a design by Oleg Cassini. However, you won’t find the dress on the David’s Bridal website. She purchased it separately, but also from David’s Bridal. The sash that comes with the dress is more like a 1″ wide ribbon, hardly a sash. The sash was altered by Naomi from it’s original design. The veil also was from David’s Bridal. I hope you will find the right dress for you:-)

  • Monica Remchek - Maid of Honor - Wow – These picutres are great! I absolutely love them!!!!!

    Naomi & Florin! Congrats, you look great!

  • Katy - Hi there,

    I came across your pictures while searching for engagement rings under google images. Your pictures are tremendous! I’m looking to get an engagement ring made, and I was wondering if you knew what the beautiful green stone was made of? Thanks!

  • Anna - Hi Katy,

    The stone is a Peridot. And the outer stones were diamonds.
    Take care.

  • Julie Campbell - Anna,

    These Pictures are gorgeous!! I did the make up for the wedding. May I post a link to your page from my website? I am currently using one of Naomi’s photos and would like to just make a hyperlink to your page. I will also be adding a credit and contact info page, should you want me to put your info there as well. Please let me know. Thank you!!

  • Bridal gowns - These pictures make me feel being a bride is a great idea. So beautiful, so romantic, so moved…

  • Ryan - Anna

    Do you know where Naomi and Florin found that ring? Or did they have it made for them? I’ve been looking for a peridot ring, but so far, I haven’t found anything graceful enough.

    Any help would be much appreciated.


  • Tammy - Hi Anna,
