Rain couldn't damper the festivities at Michelle and Mitch's vintage outdoor wedding. With the sky darkening, the lovebirds happily exchanged vows surrounded by 175 guests, who managed to remain dry during the ceremony. Afterwards, however, the stage had to be moved indoors so the band could play. "They played long past their time in freezing temperatures because we were having such a good time," explains Michelle. While the weather may have been less than ideal, the vintage outdoor wedding was filled with so much charm that celebrants couldn't help grinning from ear to ear. From a wedding cake homemade by a friend of the bride to the hand-painted wooden signs; the framed fabric table numbers to the whimsical birdcage card box, every little detail was sweet and thoughtful. As a final touch to the vintage outdoor wedding, guests were treated to a massive candy station.
