video // Northwest Vintage Wedding Fair: Seattle, WA

I’m never one to resist getting tantalizing close-ups of tulle and shortcake. So earlier this spring I delighted in filming a little slice of the glittered, glammy spectacle that is the Northwest Vintage Wedding Fair. Let’s just say that there was enough vintage elegance and eye candy and antiquated treasures and sweetly scripted invitations and feathery fascinators and Broaches (with a capital B) to put an F. Scott Fitzgerald garden party to shame. I would tell you there was vintage chocolate, but thank goodness there wasn’t—just freshly made, oh so au currant confections and yes, floaty voluminous shortcake that absconded with my heart. Organizers Laurie Kearney of Ghost Gallery and Rosemary Wagner of Rosemary Wagner Photography have nurtured an atmosphere of homemade intimacy and approachability missing from the sterile, sweeping expanses of large-scale wedding expos. It seems like the perfect place for couples to find meaningful, extraordinary vintage items and services offered by vendors who truly care about their craft. As Rose aptly put it, it makes me want to get married again. This time in a gorgeous little felt cloche. Daintily nibbling my fairytale shortcake while pummeling our custom heart-shaped pinata. Can’t wait for next year’s vintage wedding fair!
