They wanted their wedding to feel like a dark and regal version of Marie Antoinette meets Alice in Wonderland so when Sabrina and Andres began planning their January 2020 wedding, they knew the details of the day would really matter. The bride in particular painstaking planned every element of the day, even going so far as considering the texture of certain elements and having a signature scent.

“We included so many gorgeous and specific details that told the story of our love”, began the bride. “We put so much thought into every single detail. The flowers and invitations were our favourite parts (and seeing the whole thing come together so perfectly, exactly how we imagined, scents of cinnamon and all!)”

Moody, Glam Wedding with a Rock Star Edge

When an events planner gets married, you just know it’s going to jam packed full of details and thoughtful touches! “Joe and I have always had a very specific personal style,” Nora explained. “We wanted everyone at our wedding to understand who we are as people and what our relationship is like!” They were inspired by the Sunset Strip, Norah’s great grandmother’s vintage style and the warehouse space that they were working with. “We wanted the space to feel like a lush rock star afterparty! We kept the traditions we loved and ditched the rest.”

Married at Tenk West Bank, in Cleveland, Ohio, the couple made the most of the leap year to marry on February 29th. Nora DIY’d many elements for their day, from signage, placards and menu cards to the ceremony arbour, chalk wall art and the centrepieces.

A Moody meets Romantic Vow Renewal

When Alicia and Vince were first married, there were too many other things going on in their lives that were stressors and made having an actual wedding impossible. Instead they eloped to Vegas for a quick ceremony. “We always planned to save and have a wedding but the timing was just never right and life became too busy,” the bride told us.

“When my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary, we talked about the wedding we never had and how we would do things differently. We started floating around the idea of renewing our vows and what that would actually look like. I wanted to celebrate us, where we made it in our lives together as partners and ultimately have photos to document our union.”

For their October 2019 wedding held at Wolf Trap Farm in Gordonsville, VA, Mariah and John decided that something small was best. Their dream day began with an short and sweet ceremony, followed by a gorgeous yet low key reception in the converted hay barn. The bride opted for a Willowby by Watters gown which she bought ay BHLDN and a delicate headpiece by Laurel Lime.

“We met way back when in a crowded bar”, the bride began. “There were only two seats left, so naturally I sat next to the cute guy. We got to talking and he offered me his leftover pizza. I thought that was totally weird and he still insists it was very sweet. A dog, a house and about 7 years later he proposed in our living room.”

Moody Meets Glam Wedding with Armenian Touches

With Chris as a left-brained lover of maths, and Noelle a creative, their interests meet at the intersection of exploring and learning about our world. “We are both captivated by astronomy,” Noelle explained, “and I used Alphonse Mucha’s series The Moon and Stars as my inspiration for the wedding to represent that intersection that we come together at.”

“Our wedding was a love letter to everything important to us as a couple. We celebrated with an intimate reception at our favourite pizza place and we danced (including a shabash – a traditional Armenian money dance) and drank until we were exhausted! We also got matching tattoos on our ring fingers and Chris got our wedding date tattooed on his thumb. We wanted everything to be an expression of our lives and our personalities coming together in a bacchanalia of fashion, glam metal and whiskey.”

With an $8,000 budget, finding a plus-size dress that was affordable, fashion-forward and sexy was the hardest part of the couples planning. Noelle eventually settled on a Fame and Partner for David’s Bridal number at the last minute. “I’m obsessed with dreamy textiles and I knew I wanted a dress where the fabric was the star of the show. I actually had a completely different dress and then this collab dropped a month before the wedding and I changed everything. The charmeuse moves like water and made me feel so glam.”
