  1. We plan to incorporate antique/vintage "junk" into your wedding.. with TONS of Pewter.. Pewter.. Pewter! I have a variety of containers and trays we have collected over the years and it is the BEST base for our color combo of muted Purples and charcoal grays.. We will have antique frames everywhere.. for signage, photobooth props and with chalkboards in them for food and drink menu's! An old school/weathered desk to serve drinks on before our beach ceremony will be the perfect fit for the surroundings and feel of our day. We also have both collected fun vintage books who's covers we love, we will use those here and there for decor and centerpieces.. heck.. Antique/vintage "junk" will be everywhere!!
