Fun details like this pair of vintage typewriters as a guestbook alternative, made Holly + Brett’s wedding so unique.  Holly collected these items and created the banners for the reception decor herself.

Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Holly + Brett opted for a vintage popsicle cart from Family Freezed. The popsicle sticks were even personalized!
