"Before Mara and Andrew's wedding I only had a chance to meet with the bride. When I arrived at Mercury Hall on the wedding day Mara's sister approached me and said, "Just wait until you see Mara and Andrew together they are so loving towards one another." She was absolutely right and you could feel the love in this vintage inspired DIY wedding. The bride and groom made the day so smooth, special, and laid back. The wedding had a very vintage feel with it's neutral color palette that included creams, grays, and light pink. The flowers were simple and white and displayed in elegant table settings made using vintage tea kettles, books, and candle holders. The wedding was filled with touching surprised from the bride to the groom, including a vintage car for transportation, a flash mob, and a pancake snack. The whole event made me feel like I was in the novel The Great Gatsby, with a little flair. It was simple, heartfelt, and beautifully put together."

Bernadette at Dette Snaps recruited real life couple Nikki Jilek & Reid Jilek to be the focus of this modern wedding day bridal inspiration shoot. The overall feel is of a contemporary modern bride, giving a nod to current trend & style. The chosen bridal gown is one with no forced glitz & flare.

Our bride's hair is pulled up into a Gibson Tuck inspired do, while her make-up accentuates her eyes with a soft dab of pale pale pink to the lips.
