Celeste and George's 1920s wedding

A while back a reader emailed me with pictures of her 1920s wedding to post on my blog. This post is a little overdue — sorry, Celeste and George! — but I finally got around to it!

Here you are — Celeste and George's fabulous 1920s wedding!

(Okay, I'm a shoe girl, so please excuse me a moment while I drool over Celeste's sparkly T-strap shoes...)

Celeste wore a more modern gown for the ceremony, but the transportation was totally 1920s...

Celeste changed into a gorgeous white flapper gown and boa for the reception. Here she and George are with their flapper bridesmaid:

I don't know who the gentleman is in this picture, but I love his outfit!

Even the kids were on board! I love it!

Regarding dancing and music, Celeste said:

I noticed the section on your blog about the Charleston. I just wanted to let you know that it can be done. Myself and about half of my 65 guests danced it for a couple hours straight (of course with slower ones in between). But it was a riot! And everyone, down to my DJ, said they did not expect my music choice to go off so well (I stuck STRICTLY to 1920s music).

Congratulations, Celeste and George!
