Vintage and Rustic Train Depot Wedding

by Chie in — Updated December 18, 2019 — Reading Time: 3 minutes

Every detail in this wedding is the work of our bride, Sydney, and her mom. And since she has such an impeccable eye for design and style, it wasn’t a surprise that they ended up with such an awesome looking 1920’s inspired glam wedding. The venue, a historical train depot, was a plus for the vintage feel of the event. What I love the most was the globe that they painted over with chalk paint then they drew over it the NYC spots that they were going to visit for their honeymoon – such a creative idea. Anyway, congratulations on the wedding Sydney & Jeremy!



What do you think is the overall story for this album?

Two people with extremely busy lives who slowed down to have a small and extremely intimate wedding in their home town

What inspired the wedding day outfits?

Vintage minimalism, She didnt want anything too flashy and was able to find a dress that was elegant, flattering, and affordable.

What was your favorite part of the day?

The preparation was my favorite because everyone was so relaxed. Both the bridesmaids and groomsman were groups of people who had been friends for years and watching them interact was the most laid back of any wedding I have ever photographed.

Was there any Do it Yourself (DIY) projects? If so, can you describe them in detail?

All of the decorations were made by the bride, Sydney, and her mother. There were many reclaimed pieces of furniture and artwork that they saved from a trip to the landfill and remade them in to something beautiful. I think one of my favorite pieces of decoration was the globe that Sydney repainted to depict a few places in New York they were excited to visit on their honeymoon. The globe is now used as a conversation piece on a bookshelf in their living room (along with a few of my photos!) Along with the decorations, Sydney also made all of the flower arrangements herself as well. Being a fashion merchandiser, she has a wonderful eye for detail and filled every square inch of the event space with something beautiful.

What were the highlights from the ceremony & reception?

One of the highlights of the ceremony was that Jeremy surprised Sydney by playing his guitar and singing her a song. Near the end of the reception, a storm rushed in. It was absolutely pouring and while I was photographing a few of the guests with the bride and groom outside, lightning struck the facility next door which put a little excitement in the evening!

Was there a theme for the ceremony and reception?

I can’t say that there was a definite theme, but everything had an ivory and gold feeling. With a mixture of all romantic decorations in the historical train depot, the event had a 1920’s feeling to it without the over the top gaudiness that comes with Gatsby themed events.

Links to Wedding Videos?

Though this was not a professional video of the day, a friend of the groom is a Youtube sensation and documents his life through a video journal:

What part of the ceremonies do you think was the most memorable for the bride and groom? Guests?

I think one of the most memorable parts of the ceremony was Jeremy singing to Sydney. There was so much emotion and it was obvious that neither of them saw anyone else around them. They were right by themselves. It was absolutely lovely and there were very few dry eyes in the venue.
