Dark & Moody Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding with a Botanical Theme

With a passion for plants, Kelsey and Grant knew there had to be plenty of greenery in their wedding. Grant proposed to Kelsey in their greenhouse, and so plants are very much a part of their story. The couple incorporated greenery wherever they could. They chose a venue with a huge living wall, and their florist included a rooted plant in Kelsey’s bouquet, so she could plant it and continue nurturing it, well after the wedding. They also had a plant potting segment of the ceremony and a potted plant seating chart.

As an art major in college, designing the day was something Kelsey really enjoyed, and she took on a lot of DIY projects, including spray painting vintage frames, making a sign and terrariums with animal bones, crystals and butterflies in.

Dark & Moody Bohemian Wedding with a Miniature Horse!

Originally, Amy and Shaun planned a vintage country theme for their November 2020 wedding day, but that soon changed once she started dress shopping. Once she found her favourites at Flutter Dress, she quickly realised that a dark bohemian wedding was more her style. Amy is also obsessed with collecting various animal skulls and made sure to incorporate them into their day by hand-bleaching a bison skull for her guests to sign.

Amy also turned her hand to floristry for their day, putting together all the ceremony florals, arches, bridal party bouquets and table lanterns. “I wish I knew why pampas grass is so expensive,” she told us. “however we kept costs down by spending weeks snipping live, in-bloom pampas grass and spraying it with sealant. It worked a treat!”

Moody & Romantic Woodland Wedding

With a $10,000 budget, Allexa and Evan saved in many areas when it came to planning their March wedding. “One of our biggest savings was hiring an AirBnb for the weekend,” the bride told us. “Not only was it much cheaper than a venue would have been, it also included our accommodation expenses for three nights!”

They chose a retreat in McKinleyville, California, as the hub for their warm and cosy, woodland themed day. “I wanted the day to have an ethereal but edgy, enchanted forest vibe. I spent the last five years collecting ideas from Pinterest and Instagram, and pulled in our own ideas to make the day feel more like ‘us’”.

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.

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.”
