Whimsical vintage-inspired lakeside summer wedding

When friends would ask Emma about their wedding colors, she’d smile and say, “All of them!” That’s what our bride and her guy Thomas were all about: color, whimsy, and sparkle set against the down-to-earth backdrop of their Lake Winnipesaukee five generation family cottage in New Hampshire. They worked with Events by Sorrell and Lotus Floral Designs to bring vintage romance and the vibrance of summer to their intimate lakeside wedding, while Kate Preftakes Photography captured their “magic of the woods” affair in the dreamy images below!

Such pretty rings!

The bride says, Our style in all things is colorful, eclectic and vintage, and I knew I wanted to wedding to reflect that, so I asked our florist to make the flowers multicolored and burst like wildflowers that had just been picked and place them around the venue in old bottles, boxes styled with antique furniture. Each bridesmaid even more a different shade found in the bouquets and groomsmen ties and boutonnieres. 

Our groom donned a mauve-pink suit with a floral tie to match the vibrant wildflower vibes.

Emma’s dress looked like dotted Swiss disco balls—fitting as her friends call her the disco queen—and reminded her of the lake’s water glistening in the sunlight.

Just too many cute littles in this lakeside wedding!

Magical wildflower vibes, check!

Blush, blue, yellow, and gold, along with a tent full of twinkle lights elevated the earthy, rustic setting.

The whimsy cake table became a centerpiece and a grand execution of my woods magic vision. A vintage French provincial dresser bursting with flowers in each drawer and strewn with old teacups and chocolates backed up against a tree with a giant mirror hung above. Something Alice in Wonderland might have stumbled across. The old timey vibe was carried through the night by the 18-piece swing band that set us back to the 1930’s. It was perfect for the old New England setting.

Such a beautiful, intimate wedding!
