She accessorized with a silver belt and crystal necklace, and wore her hair in a low updo. She carried a bouquet of peach and pink garden roses, white pincushions, white peonies, and pink astilbe. Her ‘maids opted for a unique skirt and shirt combo, donning light pink skirts and taupe scoop-neck shirts. They accessorized with various statement necklaces and carried bouquets of ranunculus, peonies, stock, and dusty miller. The groom and his men were clad in dark suits and dark blue ties, the groom stood out with a plaid pastel neck tie. The couple tied the knot in front of 150 guests in front of a wooden cross. Guests sat in white folding chairs marked by pastel floral arrangements made by the groom’s family. “I have always loved antiques, so I knew the vintage feel was what I wanted to go for,” Betsy said. “Most of the decor came from various family members.” A vintage welcome table greeted guests at the reception which featured framed chalkboard signage and white porcelain plates for guests to sign. Guests sat at round tables with white linens and a blue and white striped table runner. “I really just wanted a wedding that was relaxing and fun,” Betsy said. “I wanted people to come, sit down, have a good meal and enjoy themselves on our special day.” There were multiple elaborate desserts for guests to indulge in. They filled up on a two-tier white buttercream cake adorned with pastel flowers, a two-tier square chocolate mousse cake topped with fruit, and miniature pies. After eating and dancing the night away, guests were given peanut favors and held sparklers for Betsy and Adam’s send-off, for which Betsy changed into a lace and tulle tea-length dress. “It will all come together,” Betsy said. “I think I have told that to every bride that I have talked to since I got married, but it is so true!” See the full board here.
