As a woman with chronic illness, I currently have patches of hair missing, and I am uncertain whether or not they will fully grow back in before my wedding. So I began trying to think more outside the box for my veil…
If it was up to my husband we would have had a wrestling wedding, but we landed on a carnival theme because we felt like there was so much we could do with it. We picked a historic site, Glen Echo Park, which was once an amusement park in the 40 and 50s and still had some of the lights and structures standing.
Joseph and Temprest wanted to celebrate with 20 of their closest friends in only 60 days or planning. They created the most joyful wedding at the Oatland Island Wildlife Center for the ceremony and a chic restaurant for their reception. Don’t miss the Pac-Man cake topper, loads of nerdy references in their vows, and the bride’s vintage-inspired birdcage veil.
I love to dive back into wedding veils to see what’s new. This time I decided to look into the realm of colored, bedazzled, and embellished wedding veils and it was so not a disappointment.
I am a retro pinup and my husband is a phenomenal guitar player. What better way to combine the two passions with a retro diner theme wedding? With tabletop jukeboxes and condiment caddies on every table, an electric guitar as our guestbook, ice cream sundae wedges on my feet, 45s lining the aisle, my bridesmaids carrying albums down the aisle instead of bouquets, guitar pick place cards, and a working jukebox at the front of the ceremony space, and guitar pick flower boutonnieres, our wedding was a combination of retro style and rock 'n' roll.
This small elopement in New York City was full of sparkles, sequins, the best of friends, tons of tears, a mini dance party in the park, and a hugh-jass ice cream milkshake. Is it possible to even imagine a more intimate, fun-filled, and stress-free wedding?
You’re in a for a big, whipped cream and cherry-covered treat with this one, y’all…
