Cassidi & Rob were married at Moorestown Community House, New Jersey. They wanted the wedding to have a flea market vibe with touches of Rock n Roll. “Our colors were charcoal, dusty rose, powered pink, mixed shades of ivory and creams”, the bride explained. “We had a ton of blue mason jars, old bottles, and milk glass. A million doilies in all shades of whites, creams, and ivory. Each table has random little props, some tables had small vintage white dogs, or old skeleton keys, or buttons.”
“My best friend and one of my maids of honor Annie helped me a lot with the planning and styling”, she continued. “She lives in Seattle so there were many late night phone calls about colors and props. We found most of our decor at flea markets around the city. I also had the best ‘dog of honor’ ever… and creepy animal masks. We both like kind of weird stuff were it is creepy yet beautiful so we thought animal mask would be neat. We had little punk rock buttons with the Black Flag and Danzig logo on them but they had our names and wedding date. We also had custom mad-libs at all the tables.”
“All of the hankies we passed out to guests were hand stamped. We made all of the centerpieces with bulk flowers, along with designing all of them. We had a handwritten guest book sign and my step dad made the ‘totally married’ sign. We made all the little drink stirrers and candy bags, all of the cards, candy bar, props, and gift signs. All the invites, seating cards, drink menus were made by our amazing friend Jessica Scarlett.”
The music they played was also super important to this couple. “While people were seating down we played all VSQ covers of songs we love (The Pixies, Nirvana, The Smiths, Green Day)”, Cassidi continued. “The bridal party walked down to a VSQ cover of ‘Here Comes my Baby’ By Cat Stevens. I walked down to The Ramones ‘Baby I Love You’ and we left to Edward Sharp ‘Home’. Our first dance was to Ra Ra Riot ‘Can you Tell’. We played a mix of 70-80s punk rock and indie rock…then we played a lot of 90s rap music to get the party started!”
So awesome! Thank you to Cassidi & Rob and their fabulous photographers, Love Me Do Photography, for sharing with us today.
