A Day Dreamy, Whimsical Picnic Wedding

Jenna & Michael had a fabulously quirky, kooky and personally rockin’ wedding two weeks ago and the every lovely Love Me Do Photography were there to capture the entire thing. The couple put a lot of work into the day with DIY projects a-plenty. “We wanted our wedding to be very classic looking, but still have a whimsical picnic, day dreamy kind of day feeling” the couple explained and they certainly achieved this with ideas such as the wishing tree – handmade bird silhouettes pinned into flocks and hung from the branches – which was used instead of a guestbook and the funky chocolate moustaches that certainly made for some great pictures and were provided by Pink, White, Brown.

You know what, I always have time for another quickie blog post before bed. Moley is wonderful. I heart him. He has also just become Feather Love’s new intern. I expect great things. Gotta love those random moustaches/fake noses!

Family, Friends and Fabulous Fashion!

I have been dying to get the wedding up all day, and I am so excited that it is all now ready to go. Photographer Monika Broz of Project Mad Love sent me these gorgeous images alongside a fantastic overview of their day by the couple, Cori & Rollie. So without further ado…

We wanted to have a relaxed but stylish outdoor wedding with a casual feel in the Lambertville/New Hope area close to where are families are from but not too far from NYC where a lot of our friends are.  I always pictured the sun shining with fluffy clouds and blue skies and kids running around and everyone just kicking back and enjoying the good food and good company.  We chose the Mills for it’s beautiful location on the Delaware River and the charm and history of the buildings. 

We have a lot of family and friends with kids so instead of a bridal party we invited all 32 kids to be in the wedding and walk down the aisle…they all wore white and were rewarded with hand made goodie bags (made by my friend, Nicole and I) with their names on them.  The bags contained custom made aprons from Kimberly (a friend) at Chez Sucrechez and also had pirate eye patches and moustaches, candy necklaces and watches, wax lips, and other treats from Economy Candy in NYC.

My dress was designed by me with the help of my friend, Rose Baron who made the dress.  My vision for my dress was 70s inspired with long, soft sleeves and an empire waist.  I did not want to wear white so we found this great dove grey cotton voile swiss dot fabric at Mood that I loved.  I wanted some pleating detail on the center back and Rose really brought my vision to life!  My headpiece was designed by me and made by my friend, Jenny.  My blue shoes were Chloe.  Rollie’s suit was from Banana Republic and his tie I bought at a vintage store in Rome.

For the flowers, my bouquet was camomile and peonies, the girls carried daisies and camomile and the boys had daisy or camomile boutonnieres.  We had shepard’s hooks with buckets of daisies down the aisle for the ceremony and stood in front of strings of origami doves, symbols of peace and long life together.  The dove garland is handmade in Bangladesh by women in rural villages (www.tenthousandvillages.com) The flowers for the tables were in vintage milk glass vases and were all camomile.

My mom and I made all the table runners from a Denyse Schmidt floral fabric, I made the napkins that had Fortune Teller Fish tied around them, our paper wreath that hung on the mill door we bought on Etsy from a vendor called Haru.  The hand painted signs indicating cocktails, dinner, ceremony, and dancing, were made by my mom.

The 6 cakes and cupcakes were made by my cousin, Linnette Kelly and the clothespin cake topper was made by my mom.

Thanks so much to Monika, Cori & Rollie for contributing to this post!

The NOT Wedding – Results Time

As a general rule, I tend not to promote random bridal events. My personal feeling is, that if you want to go to a bridal show/sale/event you are more than capable of searching these out yourselves.  However The NOT Wedding is one bridal affair I make an exception for. Not only is the concept truly unique, but by using the awesome Our Labor Of Love to photograph the show, the results really have provided some fabulous inspiration I’m sure all you guys can enjoy. The idea behind the event was to hold a wedding show that showcased some of Atlanta’s best vendors by setting up 5 fabulous fake weddings – formal, betsey (funky and hip), California, picnic and palm beach.
