Katherine and Jason’s wedding was like something out of a movie, and was a real community effort. They rented a cabin for all their guests to stay in the week before. The day itself started with a first look, right by the water, followed by an intimate and nature-inspired ceremony. They served burritos and dessert bought from Costo and the day ended with them skinny dipping!
Most of all the wanted their day to feel personal to them. The field they were married in was buzzing with bees. They kept the decorations simple, instead focusing on the people they love that were there with them.
Oh HEY beautiful colour, beautiful dress and beautiful people – what a treat this shoot is! Coordinated by Beth A Weddings and shot by Angela Ward Brown, this bright, relaxed elopement shoot was inspired by Hope Macaulay‘s incredibly colourful ‘Roman Goddess’ dress, and had a focus on young and up and coming talent. We dig.
“The ‘Roman Goddess’ dress by young designer Hope Macaulay is everything we hope that wedding dresses of the future will be,” Beth explains. “It’s full of colour, incredible design, beautiful embroidery and personal romantic touches – such as some of the most stunning landmarks Italy has to offer.”
It was styled with an oversized colour pop floral headdress by Rabbit and the Rose. They then built upon this bold and bright theme to make an intimate, stylish elopement with a super cool and super colourful vibe.
Ivy and Nate wanted their wedding day to be a party focused on good music, good food and even better drinks; a brief they absolutely SMASHED. Their wedding was held at the beautiful and ornate The American in Kansas City and it just keeps getting cooler from there.
They had decided not to have a ceremony on that day, opting instead of a private one at their house on a later date. This meant that Ivy and Nate got ready together with family and friends, “It was really nice because we experienced every part of the day together,” Ivy explains. “I know everyone says this but the day goes by so fast, so spend as much time together as you can.”
Ivy and Nate look like total bad asses in their wedding outfits, with Ivy wearing a Giambattista Valli dress she bought from Net-A-Porter. “I was out of town a lot in the build up to the wedding and just never made the time to go and try on dresses with family and friends. In the end, I did a lot of looking on wedding blogs to find my dress – I bought four, and ended up keeping this one.”
Nate wore a custom made suit from Manuel Couture, from Nashville. “Manuel has made suits for countless celebrities, and I think Nate was most excited about owning a Manuel suit!”
