Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Calling all glam brides! Get ready to be wowed by the amazing tablescapes in Ashley and Dustin’s Nashville wedding. From the glitzy chandeliers to the rhinestone-wrapped centerpieces, we’re loving the way this couple blended urbane and vintage aesthetics to create their own unique cosmopolitan look. Special thanks to jHenderson Studios for sharing the day with us!

“We wanted [our wedding] to feel modern, contemporary, and unique,” says the bride. “We wanted it formal, fun, and interactive for our guests, so we selected a great band and included a photo booth. Later on in the evening, we passed out glow sticks for our guests to use while dancing. We also had a live painter documenting the entire event.”

Thanks again to jHenderson Studios for sending over these pretty pictures! If you liked this elegant urban wedding, you should also check out Courtney and Adam’s shabby chic California affair and Katelyn and Brad’s juicy Colorado nuptials.

Katie + Joe: A Rock ‘n Roll Arkansas Wedding by Liz Chrisman
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Watch out!  Katie and Joe’s rock ‘n roll real wedding is one for the books. These two meant business when they set out to plan a retro-inspired event featuring polka-dot everything (Katie’s favorite) and Joe’s perfectly suited, graphic design paper goods.  The pair poured themselves into planning and with the help of the team at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch, their dream wedding was brought to life! Photographer Liz Chrisman says, ‘Katie and Joe march to the beat of their own drum, and that was most definitely reflected in their off-beat, fun, rockabilly wedding.’  We couldn’t agree more!

Katie’s passion for polka dots started with the bridal party attire.  From the wedding dress to the bridesmaid’s frocks, all of their vintage-chic attire was sourced from Etsy designer Pixie Pocket.  As for the invites, the very talented groom whipped up these rock ‘n roll paper goods in black and red to set the tone.

Of the ceremony, Katie says, ‘A moment that will always be special to me was while we were saying our vows. All day long it was supposed to rain. The sky was gray and the sun was hidden. I was terrified that this would be the death of my dream outdoor wedding.  Of course the barn had planned an inside move if needed, but I was still nervous. The rain held off and when it finally started to drizzle while Joe and I were exchanging our vows under the arbor, the rain sprinkled in a perfect circle around us. The trees were shaking off collected drops in such a manner that it looked planned! After the trees cleared their branches, the sun jumped out from behind a cloud and shined right on us. It was seriously like something out of a movie.  Although we had dated for six years prior to our wedding, this was proof that rain or shine- we were meant to be together.’

Jennifer + Eric: A Rockabilly Glam Beach Wedding by Weber Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

We love, love, love when a couple brings their own unique flavor to an unexpected wedding locale. Case in point: Jennifer and Eric. From her glam peep toe pumps to his newsboy cap, it’s clear this Florida duo has a bit of a retro aesthetic. But instead of throwing a Rockabilly wedding in a park somewhere, they exchanged vows right on the beach—and we totally dig the results. Special thanks to Weber Photography for sharing the day with us! Scroll down for a bevvy of red wedding inspiration.

Jennifer and Eric’s love story begins in high school. They flirted in art class all through Eric’s senior year (Jennifer was a junior at the time), but never revealed their feelings. They lost touch for about a year after Eric graduated, but were able to pick things back up not long after that. “It was easy to start our friendship exactly where it left off,” says Jennifer. “After a few months and a couple of dates, we knew we had to be together.”

Sarah and Dan’s mutual friends set up multiple group outings in order to introduce the pair. Their match-making instincts were on point—Dan proposed just ten short months after the couple’s first date! “We instantly clicked,” says Sarah. Dan proposed at the historic Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, so they sought out a location with a similar history and feel.  They found it at River Oaks Garden Club. A florist by trade, Sarah’s mother made all the bouquets and boutonnieres for the day.
