Wedding Sparrow doesn’t only feature bigger budget weddings, we love a DIY wedding as much as the next bride especially one that’s as full of love as this one from Lily Glass Photography. Shot on film and with a picnic style reception at home, this vintage wedding is made perfect thanks to bride Reika’s big day style…

From Lily: “I had the pleasure of photographing Arthur and Reika Kadlec’s simple yet stunning summer wedding. Together we decided that film would be best the medium on which to capture their day as they married during an intimate family ceremony in an old stone chapel in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, with a picnic reception at Art’s childhood home to follow. Reika’s dress was a labor of love as she searched for the perfect style and fit, finally creating one herself by pairing a short lace dress from Madewell with a custom-made sheer skirt. Every detail of their wedding day was meaningful and intentional — from the vintage china to grandma’s linens, to the juicy delicious peach favors their friends from The Peach Truck brought up from Nashville, to their choosing a caterer that provides not only delicious food but also social justice (Freedom a la Cart). Art and Reika have such a sincere love that encourages and sharpens those with whom they come into contact – their love makes you want to love better, to love genuinely. And so it was no surprise that their wedding was a celebration to begin their lives together, but also a downright party during which they danced and hugged and high-fived the friends and family that they hold so dear. There were folks from all over the world and never have I seen wedding guests intermingle so well as this evening, which I think testifies greatly to the kind of folks that Art and Reika are.”
