Boho Bride

The ladies from A Vintage Affair had told us about this dress they had tucked away in the back. It was straight out of the seventies, lots of ruffles, very lacey... but Wowza, it's a whole different story when you see it on. Shannon you are beyond gorgeous!




Sarah Mayerson Design crafted this beautiful headband that completed the look.

Merry Christmas to all

We at A Spoonful of Vintage wish you a happy Christmas. Thought I would share a Christmas greeting from 1912 that I came across in an antique shop in Kalispell, Montana. The fact that Christ-mastide was split in two just made me smile.

Snaps for straps

Here a flirtatious, fifties frock is made modern with shimmering ankle-straps.



The talented ladies at Cakeworks came up with the idea of glamming up a simple cake with vintage broaches. Brilliant!

The Rockstar Bride

No tea cups or Grandmother's lace here. In fact, we thought that our model, Clare, looked as though she were about to steal away and marry a young Mick Jagger.

Behind the scenes

A few fun outtakes from our bridal fashion shoot with Clare, Samantha & Shannon.

Welcome

We are a group of Calgary wedding vendors with a soft spot for vintage. Maybe you hear the phrase "vintage wedding" and visions of Grandmother's lace, tea cups and doilies pop into your mind? As a group, we love the idea of adding just a "spoonful of vintage" to your modern wedding. This quote in a recent issue of Canada's Style at Home, sums up how we feel about the value of vintage.

The world often feels so homogenized. You could be in Brazil or Toronto or wherever and the decor could be the same. All it takes is that one antique, that one flea market find to make your home different than everyone else's. Bob & Cortney Novogratz.

Amen. They may have been referring to home design, but this certainly applies to weddings as well.

A Spoonful of Vintage consists of group of wedding vendors that can make your vintage dreams come true. We are:

A Vintage Affair, Vintage Bridal Fashions
