Caroline and Andy wanted a wedding that was uniquely theirs, with none of the fluff or traditions that were not meaningful to them. Instead, they opted to bring in things they love together. This included a “scotch blessing” before dinner for everyone with custom shot glasses. They even carefully curated an intimate wedding party pre-wedding cocktail hour to ease everyone’s pre-wedding stressors.
Ricardo and Alex had a swanky and chic wedding at the FatVillage Art District in Fort Lauderdale, FL that blew us away. Ricardo owns a successful dance studio and his students and their parents support the LGBT community. Many attended the wedding and brought with them tons of fun vibes.
There were food trucks, a huge, lit-up cherry blossom tree, a custom backdrop and photo booth, and so many colorful and stylish details that you’ll just have to start scrolling to see them all.
The theming was a bit all over the board but it came together swimmingly. The look was super vintage starlet, the venue decorations leaned to a glam nature look but set in an industrial (literally a converted warehouse) art gallery/studios, which already had art on the walls and string lights which made decorating a breeze.
My husband was born and raised in Columbia, MO, so the idea of having the wedding downtown was something he was very invested in. Our rehearsal dinner was at a locally (state-wide probably) famous pizza place where we spent many late nights in college playing D&D and Munchkin.
Our main goal for our wedding was to create a meaningful ceremony with a super fun reception. I love crafting, so I handmade all the flowers (personalizing each bridesmaid's bouquet to her interests), boutonnieres, and signs, and DIYed my veil!
Gretchen and Landen found an art gallery as their venue so their decor was already mostly set and amazing. They really wanted to showcase the venue with it’s displayed art pieces and graffiti. All it needed were some simple white tablecloths with candles, acrylic table numbers (that Gretchen and her father made), and uncomplicated greenery as centerpieces.
It was a glowing, moody, and seriously gorgeous wedding that you won’t want to miss…
Taylor and Jade chose the American Visionary Art Museum as their venue because it’s a space they personally love, and they appreciate that it features outsider art. And of course, throughout the celebration, guests could wander the museum and look at the art. Bonus for art lovers! To up the craftiness game, Jade sewed her entire wedding outfit! Their decor was also heavily DIYed and included succulents and sprigs of Eucalyptus.
For favors, they gave out prints of a film photograph Taylor had taken at one of their favorite spots. This wedding just screams sincerity and we can’t get enough of it…
