peace, love, & americana / a patriotic and vintage vow renewal :: featured on wedding chicks

"Joanna and Matt didn’t need to travel far and wide for their intimate 10 year anniversary. Their gorgeous home was the perfect location for their vintage Americana renewal in shades of red, white, and blue. Founders of North Country Vintage Rentals, these two enlisted the help of Monica Relyea Events and Dawn Honsky Photography to capture this special day with just them and their daughter.

The sense of nostalgia in their vintage Americana design is undeniable, and we love how they included a nod to Woodstock and some of their favorite musical artists. From their romantic vow renewal under the tall pines to Joanna’s boho-inspired dresses from Daughters of Simone and Elizabeth Dye, this day was styled to perfection. " -Wedding Chicks

“I ask you to pass through life at my side -- to be my second self and best earthly companion.” This excerpt from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte was read at Joanna and Matt’s wedding at The Hill in Hudson, NY in the Summer of 2007. Last July, the founders of North Country Vintage Rentals, celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary. They marked the occasion on July 4th with an intimate vow renewal at their home in a hidden rural corner of the Hudson Valley.

An intimate meal, lounging, and dancing followed. Later, Joanna and Matt toasted their 10 years together in The Colonial, the shed they converted into an American bar. There is nothing like an at-home wedding celebration. We made use of a variety of spaces on the property to show that a couple can create a truly stylish and memorable event in their own backyard with a bit of creativity and support of the pros." -Wedding Chicks
