Just in time for all of those gorgeous Spring weddings, I’m happy to introduce our 1957 Chevy Bel-Air!
This car is an absolute gem! She has been completely restored with all original parts and, with over 50 factory options, you can see why she’s a real show stopper!
This car was originally sold in California in 1957.
This car has seat belts. In 1957, California was the first state to begin selling cars with seatbelts. The auto industry was slow to offer them in vehicles because they felt seat belts made the cars appear “unsafe”.
This car features power windows and power seats and was one of the first cars to offer this kind of luxury.
This car may cause onlookers to wave, shout or whistle real loud!
In an effort to preserve our vehicles and maintain their beauty, our cars are only rented for a limited number of events each year. Please contact me at hello (at) blueeyedyonder (dot) com to snag one for your special event!
I bought a new truck, her name is Bessie.
I cram in my daily dose of fruits and veggies in yummy smoothies.
I went under the knife. Ha! Just kidding – got my hair did.
I explored the woods with Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder and our fur child.
I started prepping for a fun DIY on the blog next week.
I joined the gingers – Yowza!
Wow! So much can happen in a week!
I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend. Stay warm and cozy!
There’s alway been something very romantic about the simplicity and intimacy of a courthouse elopement – grab your best dress, pluck a fresh bouquet and skip away to the courthouse with your sweetheart. That’s exactly what this adorable couple did, and what’s more romantic than tying the knot on Valentine’s Day? After quick “I do’s” the happily married couple drove off in a classic 1957 Chevy Bel-Air with lots of handmade hearts, cans and streamers trailing behind.
Inspired by courthouse weddings of the 50’s and 60’s we incorporated a knee-length blush pink wedding dress with lace overlay for the bride as well as coordinating vintage accessories and birdcage veil. The groom wore a black suit and handmade skinny black tie. The florals were warm and romantic, using garden roses, tulips, and ranunculus in shades from blush to poppy pink.
The celebration didn’t stop once this couple said “I do”, they dropped custom wedding announcements in the mail inviting friends and family to celebrate their nuptials at a fun, backyard bar-b-que!
