When the bride is a literal, bona fide rockstar, you know the wedding’s going to be a corker – and Cato (AKA CATO Sound) and Nick’s wedding definitely did not disappoint. They flipped the status quo with a house party and night out dancing on the Saturday and their ceremony and brunch on the Sunday! Cato’s outfit also ticks every box (“Gotta have pants, gotta have pockets, gotta have a train” she said) as do their incredible photos. Let’s begin, shall we?
“Actually, the inspiration for the wedding came to me in a dream”, began Cato. “I woke Nick up, told him what we were doing, and he liked it so we went back to sleep! At first I thought Pinterest would be helpful – oh how wrong I was! I think its best use would be to show a wedding planner what you are thinking, but I think it distorts expectations and encourages us to overspend on one day of our lives money that could give us more freedom in the years to come!”
“The biggest inspiration for us in reality was our community. From the very start, we knew our joy was only possible with the support of our community, so we wanted our wedding to be about all of us going through life together. We wanted our friends and family to be woven into our wedding in the same way they are woven into our lives, and thus most of our vendors were friends, or are friends now.”
“We held our wedding in reverse, with a Saturday night out dancing at Funky Sole at The Echo in Echo Park, and then a brunch wedding and reception on Sunday,” she continued. Their ceremony was a Reform Jewish ceremony with plenty of character. Their Rabbi, Jim Kaufmann, had them write a story about how they’d got to this point, which he then read in three parts woven into the ceremony.
Lyndee and Connor’s Omaha wedding was a stunning celebration of family, friendship and faith. With a loose theme of ‘vintage glam’, they had their ceremony in an old prebysterian church, built in the 1920s, before moving to 1000 Dodge, a fun industrial space for the reception.
As Lyndee is a hair stylist, she styled her gorgeous blush pink asymmetrical pixie herself alongside the hair of her bridal party. With Connor blindfolded, she also did his hair before he got ready! She wore a beautiful Vera Wang dress from David’s Bridal alongside royal blue heels for her ‘something blue’ (before changing into glittery rose gold Kate Spade Keds for the reception). Her eight bridesmaids also wore Vera Wang, wearing blush satin maxi dresses.
