All the Colours of the Rainbow

Jackie & John’s massively colour-filled wedding makes my heart sing with joy. Any couple who can’t settle on one colour scheme and go for all the colours is awesome in my book. Those bridesmaids – oh yes!

The wedding took place at 21c Museum Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky – an art gallery space that is quite minimalist so not to take away from the art on the walls. The couple let the venue do what it does best and didn’t worry about adding their own decorations. “Decor was not a big priority to us because I respected the venue’s integrity on it’s own” Jackie told me. “I’m an art history major so it was great to find a venue that reflected that. Plus, 99% of our guests were from out of town, so it was nice to have everything – the ceremony, reception and after party – all under one roof. Everyone partied until they had to cut the band off and then simply staggered upstairs to bed. More than a few out of town guests thanked us for that. I can not speak highly enough of the staff there. We had taken our party upstairs to a couple of hotel rooms and the hotel was getting a couple noise complaints, but instead of telling us to keep it quiet and kill the party, they opened up a meeting room space down in the basement and let us bring our own food, drinks and iPod speakers in and stay as late as we want. My husband and I finally crawled away to our room at 3:30 am or so but I’m told people were in the meeting room until well past sunrise.”

Jackie & John's massively colour-filled wedding makes my heart sing with joy. Any couple who can't settle on one colour scheme and go for all the colours is awesome in my book.

Hat, Park, Dog!

I think this wedding is quite different to the style I usually favour, but I still love it! The hat reminds me of going to English weddings where all the ladies wear big adornments on their heads.

Photographer Courtney, described this day to me:
Megan and Norm were married on May 30, 2009 at Willow Park in Louisville, Ky. That had no attendants, except for their “ring dog” Misha.

Megan didn’t opt for traditional hand-held bouquet instead chose to
compliment her outfit with a huge, gorgeous hat.
The Bride and Groom opted to accent their wedding with fleur-de-lis, a symbol of Louisville. While the guests noshed away on vegetarian friendly fare, trashcans were adorned with signs informing everyone that all the serving ware was fully biodegradable.

The music before the ceremony and during the ceremony was provided by
local musician friends, and the guests danced during the reception to the
musical stylings of a ragtime band, Rascals of Ragtyme.
