Erika and William met at a former co-worker’s retirement party. “We have been inseparable ever since,” says Erika. For their Sept. 28, 2012 wedding, they wanted to show their love for each other and share it with their guests. “Our love for each other is timeless, and we are soul mates,” says Erika.
PERSONAL TOUCHES: Erika made many of the decorative items, including the tablecloths, 24 beaded chandeliers that hung from wagon wheels, and flower-decorated willow balls that hung from the guests’ chairs.
DÉCOR: The theme of vintage, rustic glamour was accented with shades of copper, light pink, ivory, eggplant and a shimmery burnt-sugar color.
UNIQUE DETAILS: Erika was the third in her family to wear her wedding gown. Her grandmother and mother had worn it for their weddings. Erika’s grandparents’ wedding was on Sept. 28, 1940. “I walked down the aisle 72 years later in my grandmother’s and mother’s wedding gown,” says Erika. “If my grandmother was still here, she would have been so proud.” The gown was altered for Erika.
Both Erika and William work for an airplane manufacturing company, Ericka as a manufacturing representative and Will as an assistant airplane mechanic.
