Rooftop Winter Wedding in Kansas City

Jessyca and Hulon met in a plus sized fashion Facebook group and decided to meet up in person… and the rest, as the old cliche goes, is history. They arranged everything for their nuptials themselves. As an operations manager at their own music studio (825 Studios) and VP at Hulon’s record label, Jessyca was certainly well qualified for the job!

They chose to have a winter wedding because they, and their families, love colder climates. Having everything outdoors and on a rooftop was a brave choice but it worked for them! They were married at On Broadway, a rooftop event space with amazing views of the downtown Kansas City skyline.

A New Year’s Eve Warehouse Wedding with Neon Signs & A Sequin Dress!

Sophie and Matt’s December wedding encompassed everything that love about the festive season: Sequins, sparkle, lots of booze and party food (complete with a Krispy Kreme tower of doughnuts instead of cake!) The atmosphere was celebratory from start to finish.

They were married at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester. “We wanted everyone to have lots of fun and feel relaxed”, said the bride. “We had a lot of neon and the venue was a red brick, industrial warehouse so the day did have a I laid back, industrial feel. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest and Instagram but really, the venue was the inspiration for the wedding. It was an iconic representation of our beloved city, Manchester, and really didn’t require much decorative input from us – though we did have a lot of fun making things like the table centres, table plan, name cards and floral arrangements.”

Emotional Tattoo Artists’ Festive Wedding

Lydia and Mike, who met in a tattoo shop and now work together as tattoo artists, were married on December 7th in Leicester. They wanted their day to reflect the season so they picked lots of Christmassy and winter-inspired details. The bride in particular loves Christmas and history which also influenced their venue choices.

“Our wedding was themed around the winter season and elegance”, said the bride. “Our ceremony venue, The Guildhall of Leicester, is so atmospheric by itself, especially with the fire roaring. Our ceremony was conducted by our city council registrars, this was perfect for us as we aren’t religious. The addition of personal vows and a reading from my grandma made the ceremony very special to us. We absolutely love the Guildhall as our ceremony venue as it has so much history (Shakespeare performed there!) and felt honoured that we could have our ceremony in such an important building for our city.”

Rustic Yet Glam Midnight Garden Inspired Winter Wedding

Whitney and Justin were hitched in Chicago at Gallery 1028, an industrial style venue on Goose Island. The space provided the perfect canvas for their winter wedding, the style of which was influenced by other weddings they’d attended as well as wanting day that suited the season but didn’t feel to festive or themed. They were married on December 7th.

“We were shooting for a theme that seemed wintery, but not in a Christmas or holiday sense”, Whitney began, “and we came up with the idea of Midnight Garden. We worked with our vendors to elicit a focus on warm dim lights, white cotton, burgundy and lush greenery. I would describe our ‘look’ as a rustic outdoor garden at nighttime – only indoors!”

Lovecats: A Crazy Cat Themed Wedding

There was one overriding theme for George and Jordanna’s big day – you’ve got three guesses for what it could possibly be!

“We were inspired by reading the blogs of other couples on Rock n Roll Bride and how they did exactly what they wanted,” explained Jordanna. “We wanted our day to reflect our love for each other, and our other true loves; our cats Conker and Boots! However it was important to us for it not to be tacky; we wanted it to be in a sophisticated and at times, humorous way.”

They paired an elegant, wintery colour scheme of red, burgundy and black with loads of nods to their favourite felines; from Jordanna’s Markus Lupfer cat print sandals and her handmade cat ear headband, to her cat embroidered veil (!) and cat pins in the buttonholes and bouquets. George rocked socks personalised with photos of their cats, and even the bridesmaid dresses were from a website called Pretty Kitty Fashion!

Lush Greenery & Vintage Inspired Winter Park Florida Wedding

If you’re dreaming of pumpkin spice and snuggly knits then you are going to adore Kristen and Lloyd’s wedding. Almost all of their reception decor was thrifted, bought online and/ or put together by the couple themselves. They hand-painted a globe to use as their guest book (LOVE THIS!) and made magnolia leaf place cards as well as gold spray-painted dinosaur toys for some added fun and a nod to the groom’s love of Jurassic Park!

They met five years ago when Lloyd, from the UK, was in Orlando with his band. ” I pursued Lloyd and convinced my friends to go with me to the next bar so I could run into him again!” Kristen laughed. “He was only visiting from England but luckily I was able to convince him to stay!”

Their wedding was inspired by vintage elements with a touch of Hollywood glamour and a dash of Rock ‘n’ Roll. They also had lots of greenery which was also reflected in the wedding party’s outfits. “The inspiration for our wedding was our personalities and passions”, she continued. “I am studying biochemistry so we had test tube rack centrepieces filled with flowers, Lloyd loves Jurassic Park and travels around the world for work so we had travel themed decorations and our gold dinosaurs!”
