Kellie + Clay = Beautiful Fall Thanksgiving Wedding w/ Lauren Apel Photography

Rent My Dust is so happy to bring you this amazingly beautiful Thanksgiving wedding today from Lauren Apel Photography of our vintage Bride, Kellie + husband, Clay.  Kellie is an extremely talented Stationary designer at BEARD + brush.  Be sure to check out her wedding invitations below.  Kellie, her Mom and daughter came to visit us in September to see what they could rent for Kellie's outdoor Fall wedding.  Kellie immediately found our vintage fox stole and fell in love with it.  She even went and got her wedding dress out of the car to try it on together.  She was so beautiful that I almost cried.  Kellie found lots of vintage goodies that day including our mismatched wooden chairs, mismatched china, wooden sewing drawers, antlers, and a few more sweet items plus the fox stole.  Last week Kellie emailed me her wedding photos from Lauren Apel Photography and I did cry after seeing what a beautiful story that unfolded before me in pictures.  Huge thank you to Lauren for allowing me to blog this today and another huge thank you to Kellie for allowing Rent My Dust to play a small part in her wedding.  You can also check out Kellie's blog of her budget conscious wedding at BEARD + brush



Our sweet bride, Lindsay and her Mother's Vintage Wedding Dress

In this world of vintage rentals we meet brides everyday.  All of our brides are awesome and we are so very blessed.  On occasion there is a bride that just seems to touch your heart like no other.  That is what our vintage bride, Lindsay did the moment we first meet her.  She is not only beautiful on the outside but even more beautiful on the inside.  We became fast friends.  Then she told me that she was wearing her Mother's own wedding dress from the 1980s.  I thought that was so amazing.  What bride actually does that anymore?  None that I know of.  Then the brand name of the gown came up and she said it was a Fink.  I had to laugh because my very own wedding dress was a Fink.  Then low and behold, Lindsay saw a photo of myself in my wedding dress and she said, you and my Mother have the very same wedding gown!!!!  Of course I couldn't believe it that in this huge world, I would find a bride that would be wearing her own Mother's gown and that gown just happened to be my wedding gown.  What are the chances of that?  I would venture to say that the chances are very slim. 

Last weekend was Lindsay's wedding where she married her very best friend, George.  It was a magical wedding and reception.  In the middle I had to take a moment in time to just stand there with tears in my own eyes as I looked at Lindsay and thought she was one of the most beautiful brides that I had ever seen.  And to top it all off, I got to live vicariously through Lindsay's Mom and enjoy seeing her daughter walk down the aisle in a wedding dress exactly like my own.  What a treat that was for me.  A memory that I will always cherish.  So of course today I had to share some photos of Lindsay in her gorgeous vintage "Fink" wedding gown.  And I hope Lindsay doesn't mind but I also had to share a photo of myself in 1982 getting married in my own "Fink" gown.  Thank you to Lindsay and her Mom Jacqui for sharing this awesome day with me.  It is a day I will cherish a lifetime!

Special thanks go out to Stephanie Rose Photography for these amazing photos of Lindsay!
