Boho Meets 1920s Rainy Lake Wedding

Despite what Alanis Morrisette said, rain on your wedding day isn’t always a bad thing and today’s wedding feature is a lesson that your day will still be perfect even if things go differently than planned! Rebekah and Jesse were inspired by their love of nature for their September wedding, choosing Blue Heron Lake in Dorset, Ohio to host the day.

The couple didn’t stick to a budget, but reckon they spent around $8,000. Agape Photography beautifully captured the day, and they planned it themselves. Rebekah wore a BHLDN gown and accessorised with a hair drape from Azure Jewellery. Jesse chose some amazing decadent floral boots to accessorise his suit.  The couple chose custom wedding rings made by The Northway Studio.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream meets 1920’s Vintage Themed Wedding

Jamiee and Logan met on Tinder, but their story is a little bit cuter than that. After a week of chatting, they went on their first date, where they found they had loads in common, including a love of travelling, and both felt like they’d known the other for ages! However, Jamiee was due to move to London for two years. After just two months of dating Logan bit the bullet and asked to go with her, and she immediately said yes! “That’s how our adventure began,” the bride told us. “After living in London for nearly 2 years we travelled across Europe on our way back home to New Zealand, and on the trip, Logan proposed on the Greek Island, Naxos. Travel meant even more to the two of us after that!”

When it came to planning their February 2020 nuptials, the couple knew they wanted a laid-back, outdoor wedding in the middle of summer with lots of greenery, foliage and being amongst the trees. “We wanted something quite whimsical,” Jamiee continued, “but with a nod to the 1920’s, seeing as we got married in 2020!” They combined star lanterns in with the foliage and hundreds of fairy lights, and a big half-moon photo booth tied the two themes together. The bridesmaid dresses tied into this two, with star embroidery, and they paired them with celestial accessories. “I wanted to feel like a vintage, Hollywood starlet, seeming I love to dress in vintage/pinup style.”

Rustic & Vintage Meets Rock n Roll Wedding

Krystle and Mike married at Upwaltham Barns, Sussex last year. They decided early on that a traditional wedding wasn’t for them and they added their own personal touches at every opportunity! From the DIY elements to the fact that a real life rainbow appeared at the end of the night, this wedding was a Rock n Roll Bride wedding through and through!

“We went for a rustic and vintage feel to the day,” Krystle told us. “The location helped us a lot deciding when the look and vibe, but once we found our venue I wanted to add a touch of 20s flare mixed with the rural countryside.”

We’ll Always Have Paris: A Parisian Meets 1920s Themed Vow Renewal

As we kick off 2020, I’m not sure I can think of a more perfect feature than this roaring 1920s themed vow renewal! And OMG is she a beauty! We feature quite a few vow renewals, but not often those of LGBTQ couples, so I was super excited to hear all about Kaitlin and Stephanie’s love story. The day began life as a styled shoot, but they decided to renew their vows for real. They were married in Paris originally so wanted nods to this throughout too.

“We met at a theatre where we were both bartending in October of 2010”, they began. “We instantly became good friends as we bonded over our love for musical theatre and teaching. In 2011, we both joined forces at a local high school drama program. At the time, Kaitlin was already in a long-term relationship with a woman and Stephanie was in and out of unhealthy relationships with troubled men. We knew that we faced a barrage of judgements and questions from our families and friends, and that there would be serious consequences if we made the choice to be together. We knew that this would literally change our lives as we knew them, yet we found the courage and together.”

Art Deco Meets Glam Rock Wedding at The Roxian Theatre

Heather and Andy’s July wedding was a red carpet event meets glam dance party! Hosted at The Roxian Theatre, which was built in 1929, the art deco surroundings also influenced the theme. They had lots of black and gold as well as jewel tones.

“We wanted a glam red carpet style evening wedding without the stuffiness and knew our venue would play a huge role in setting the vibe”, began the bride. “Our shared passion is music and we spent a lot of our eight-year relationship attending concerts and music festivals together, so we knew right off the bat a concert venue would be our ideal space. We wanted our guests to look and feel amazing, so fashion-wise, whatever that meant to them was cool with us. We offered guests booze as soon as they arrived, and invited them to witness the ceremony ‘concert style’ from the VIP mezzanine boxes.”

Clean, Chic & Botanical Inspired Viennese Wedding

Josi and Max wanted their wedding day to be different from every other wedding that they and their guests had attended. They took inspiration from all the things they love – fashion, art, Star Wars, Guns ‘n’ Roses, classic Viennese culture and good coffee – to create a day that was more of a big party than an elegant gathering. They just wanted it to feel very true to them.

With a €20,000 budget, they DIY’d the elements that they could, and called in the expertise of professionals and friends and family elsewhere. In lieu of flowers, the bride and her mother dressed the venue with palms, ferns and exotic leaves bought at the flower market in Vienna. “I wanted to create a 1920s feeling,” explained Josi, “so we created the arrangements ourselves a couple of days before the wedding.”
