Perched atop a planked platform, this glider gave the bride and groom a cozy corner to enjoy the reception festivities. 
This vintage glider just needed a little color and TLC to make it ready for some personalizing. Painting the frame and slats was much easier with the glider disassembled. 
A friend with a vinyl cutter created this monogram for me so that the personalization would be easy to remove after the wedding. 
To make sure the decal was properly aligned, we first turned it upside-down, used the slats to mark the cut lines, and cut each strip in advance. 
With each piece cut, it was simply a matter of eye-balling the placement of the letter on the slat. 
The newlyweds enjoyed their comfy seating as the bridal party sang a song of blessing to them.

This bride and groom chose to forego the traditional head table in lieu of something with more charm. A monogrammed vintage glider brought just the right touch of nostalgia and romance.
