Anyone who knows me knows I love Etsy. I buy handmade and vintage objects all the time from one of the best things to come into April's world in the last 10 years.

Ashley purchased a lot of items for her wedding day from Etsy and all of them so beautiful and thoughtful. Ashley gave all of her bridesmaids beautiful clutches from Etsy shop Oatmeal Lace Design with their names stitched inside the clutches and Jon gave all of this groomsmen cuff links with the bus tokens from their home towns (made by Etsy shop Subway Cufflinks).

Jon & Ashley - Part One



This wedding is so amazing there are going to be several blog entries about it. You've been properly warned. Bride Ashley had so many lovely details at her wedding from incorporating heirlooms from her grandmother and great grandmother (her buttons and her wedding ring on her bridal bouquet) to her love of paper (including using vintage stamps), to the amazing food from her employer, Wolfgang Puck Catering, to the wooden dessert stands being from trees in the backyard of Ashley's childhood home.

I especially loved that Ashley used 14 Etsy artists to make her wedding day especially unique.
