Real Wedding: Casey & Louis

Posted by

Posted by Shira Savada, Real Weddings Editor


It’s almost officially fall—hard to believe it, but it’s true. I just managed to survive our August heat wave, and now I’ve started thinking about the cooler temperatures and crunchy leaves that will soon be under foot.

So, I thought I’d feature a true fall wedding this month. The super sweet wedding was so wonderfully shot by Kate Headley and dreamed up by the couple.

Casey and Louis, a crafter and a Navy Petty Officer, put together a small wedding inspired by retro elements of the 1940s, Japanese culture, and Louis’ naval background. The result of this somewhat eclectic mix of inspiration? A truly enchanting wedding. 


The bonus? The couple pulled it off on a low budget. By shopping vintage, thinking outside the box, and enlisting the help of friends and family (for flowers, hair and makeup, the catering, and then some!), Casey and Louis had their ideal wedding on a brisk autumn day in Virginia.

Check out the gallery here, and a post by the bride on her own blog, elegant musings.

  • Casey and Louis your wedding was beautiful and creative, I loved all of the vintage details! It was great to see the photos again.

  • I always remembered how pretty the red and white was with the greyness of November, and especially that adorable dress! Fabulous feature!

  • Beautiful wedding. A shame about the old house and the spray painted graffiti (or was it condemned?) I couldn't focus on the lovely bride and her husband for the dayglo letters. :(
