Glam Rock Meets Tradition: Ben & Joslyn

I knew I loved Ben & Joslyn’s Washington wedding as soon as I saw it. Never wanting to do what was expected of them, this couple wanted a wedding that was both sexy and glamorous but with small hints of tradition. “My style has never been typical so from the beginning I knew I wanted to do something fun and off the wall but at the same time mix it with traditional elements”, wrote Joslyn. “I absolutely NEVER wear white so to me it was kind of fun and rebellious to wear a fancy white gown. Also I did not want my bridesmaids to look boring and from the beginning I had a vision of them in sexy leopard print dresses and hot pink heels. My girls were pure glam and total bombshells! I would say our wedding theme was glam rock meets traditional. I definitely made a point of having our style shine through. The overall theme though was fun, fun, fun!”

The wedding was held at Lake Wilderness Lodge, in Maple Valley, WA. The venue had spectacular views of the lake whilst offering everything the couple needed all in one place. “I had a lot of DIY elements and decor for our wedding but my biggest feat was designing, printing, measuring, cutting, gluing, and assembling each invitation all on my own”, the bride continued. “It took weeks instead of days like I originally thought but they turned out totally personal and super amazing!”

Beautiful! Thank you to Ben & Joslyn and their wedding photographer  Barbie Hull for sharing with us today.
