Best of 2012- Sara and Derek

January 11th, 2013

Sara and Derek’s wedding is filled with beautiful vintage details that we just fell in love with! From the bride’s vintage inspired turquoise heels, the birdcage veil and a lace cap sleeve dress! Sara shares a few of her favorite things from her wedding below!

Derek and I got married on October 13th, 2012 at the Historic Mankin Mansion. It was a sunny, clear afternoon with blue skies. We had the best day celebrating with our closest family and friends. Every single detail of the wedding was specially planned. My mom, sister, and I spent countless weekends crafting, designing, and analyzing. Some of my favorite details were the handmade the bouquets of burlap, lace, and broaches created by my Mom, and the mirrored centerpieces crafted in the garage by WC. Everything came together seamlessly to be the vintage- inspired wedding I had dreamed of!  We feel truly blessed to have chosen to get married at HMM. Jocelene, Martin, and the rest of the staff orchestrated the day with professionalism and ease.  The other vendors were equally as amazing; Red Shutter Studios Photography (Rod & Tara), A Sharper Palate catering, and Pearls Cupcake Shoppe were some of our favorites. At the end of the day, we became Mr. & Mrs. Creger, and that was by far the best part of all!:)
