Love gives you a fairy tale......

Brandon + Cassidy

Bridesmaids wore aqua & the bride all in white.
 We met Cassidy a few months back, she was a referral from Jennifer from The Trellis Market. From the moment we met...we loved her!
She started telling us about her love of vintage, and all the vintage inspired weddings she had attended, and the accents she was creating for her special day....all the things we love! We  knew this was a lady we were going to love working with! Can't wait to share some amazing photos of Brandon and Cassidy's wedding day!!

A vintage umbrellla and the perfect color to greet the guests as they entered the gardens.

Denny Wuesthoff created the chalkboard signs.


Loved that the guest's tie matched their wedding thoughtful!

We added a bird nest to the top of her cake....

Her day was filled with ruffles & more ruffles... hundreds of handmade paper flowers were everywhere.

We were happy to be able to bring a dozen beautiful trees to give a glow to the barn....loved it! 

Thank you Brandon & Cassidy for letting us share your special day.
 We love you both.

 Thinking about our very first Mad Hatter event that was held in this little yellow grange four years ago, it is amazing to us that we have grown from seventeen to thirty vendors, and still have a little room to grow. We feel our vendors/artists are truly the very best in the Northwest..... we can honestly say....we love and appreciate all of them and treasure the gift of their friendship. Our Mad Hatter Event is a special time of year for us.....first it is our favorite time of the year, second it is a time we get to spend with our friends. Our show has become a ritual of friendship, that is very important to us, all of friendships we have made along this journey we will keep, and cherish forever.....a friend gave me a card years ago and it read, "our friends bestow grace and perform miracles, God speaks to us through our intimate chats we have with one another....our conversations, our friends listen to us, and we listen unconditionally and we are committed to each others happiness."I believe this with my whole heart!

I hope you can see the love in these photos. What an amazing circle of friends, I love how we draw close to those we love. This is were we feel rooted, such an important need for our soul...... Now let the show begin!

There were customers and happy, happy, happy, shoppers! We have received many emails with words of encouragement and thanking us for all the great shopping and the great prices all the vendors were offering!
Things we love and some of the amazing booths!!

Thank you for visiting The Mad Hatter Vintage Flea Market ~ much thanks to all of you that came to our show and expecially to all our vendors that make our show so special ~ we love you and hope to see you next year!!! xox Glad & Celia
