A Prairie Dreamland Nashville Wedding

What do you get when the band leader for Kacey Musgraves and a Nashville artist put on a prairie inspired wedding in a vintage rental warehouse?  Throw in a tequila shots during the ceremony, a country western two-step band, an aura photographer and a custom dinner tent made from crushed velvet mustard draping and you have a Midnight in Paris inspired wedding dreamland.

Mackenzie and Kyle are artists with different mediums, so their wedding was always going to be creative and fun. They approached planners Modern Vintage Events with an inspiration drawing from Mackenzie and a description of their wedding – ‘like Stanley Kubrick and The Great Gatsby hosted a cocktail hour. Unique, cinematic, intentional and intimate.’ “Doodling during our planning meetings was a common occurrence and every detail and every angle was taken into consideration,”  designer Becca told us.

DIY Desert Vibes with a Boho Eclectic Twist

Karen and Monty originally wanted to have a destination wedding in Big Bend National Park, however in the end they decided the location would make everything too complicated and stressful. Instead, they bought the desert vibes to Fort Worth! They had elements of the desert with terracotta vases, leather and cacti and added a boho twist.

“The beginning inspiration was the colours of the high desert in far west Texas in the Big Bend area”, Karen told us. “We also wanted to use local vendors that we went to a lot like Salsa Limon and El Fenix for our dinner and dessert. From there, we chose things that had meaning to us or that we both liked and it all came together.”

A Classic, Vintage Inspired Backyard Wedding on Halloween

Although they chose Halloween night as their wedding date, Kalie and Mike didn’t want a themed wedding. Although they love everything about the day, they wanted to find a way to make Halloween classy and beautiful. The evening-only celebration was held in the bride’s mother’s back garden.

The wedding began with the couple having a ‘first look’ and then doing their photos before the ceremony. Not only did this mean they weren’t worrying about losing light, but they could get rid of those pre-ceremony jitters beforehand. “We chose to do a first look and I highly recommend it”, the bride told us. “It gave us a second to take it in and have a moment. It was super special.”

A COVID Christmas Wedding with Sequins & Starbucks

If the pandemic has taught us anything it’s that low key can still be really lovely! For Sabrina and Chris, who got married a few weeks before Christmas, this was absolutely the case. They had a Registrar’s Office ceremony, followed by a quick pitstop in Starbucks to call some loved ones who couldn’t be there, rounding the evening off with a meal with their two witnesses at the bride’s sister’s house.

“Our wedding was a last minute cosy Christmas wedding”, the bride said. “With everything that 2020 and COVID has thrown at us and the loss we’ve experienced all over the world, we really just wanted our day to just be about love and our life together. We planned the day in just over a month with next to no budget. Our budget was £900 and we spent £898.99! We chose our ceremony room and had to change our photographer (because our original one came into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID so she couldn’t make it) two days before!”

Spanish Bohemian Inspired Wedding in Mexico

Justin and Andrea used their venue, Los Tamarindos in San Jose del Cabo, as the main inspiration for their 2019 wedding. The location already had tipis all around the property, which they loved, so they took that idea and ran with it.

“It really felt like an authentic Mexican Hacienda”, the bride told us. “We wanted the wedding to feel authentic to Mexican culture. We spend a lot of time in Cabo with our family and friends. We really love the food, drinks, music, language and how friendly the people are. We tried to really incorporate that.”

“The venue was an authentic farm to table restaurant located on a farm that dates back to the 19th century. We had Palomas, a worm salt tequila shot bar and we skipped the traditional cake to have Panna Cotta, a churro cart as well as Paletas.”

Intimate, DIY, Deer-Camp Wedding with Memorable Touches

Wanting to celebrate the intimacy of having a small, family wedding, Hayley and Alex chose to embrace the Scandinavian tradition of having a ‘feast-like’ feel in the barn with a single long table down the centre. They also wanted to honour Haley’s late grandmother, and Alex’s late father in their day.

Their October 2020 wedding was held on the groom’s family land on the Wisconsin river, a spot that the couple hold dear with fond memories of family fishing trips. Holding their day here meant a lot of coordination, but it was much cheaper than hiring vendors. “We hired vendors for catering, flowers, video and photography, but the rest was done ourselves,” Hayley told us.
