Seriously, can we just chat a moment about the checklist of awesome that is happening in this wedding?! Mix matched floral bridesmaid dress, a carnival frame ceremony backdrop, hand drawn wedding couple cartoon art, a succulent garden, various cheeky, family owned & thrift store found vintage decor touches, oh and a light blue Betsey Johnson dress wearing gorgeous bride! Phew, holy run on sentence batman, but so worth it! I am so very much in love with this offbeat wedding that reflects the couple style & personalities to a T. The bridesmaids are equally stunning with perfect hair & make-up, while the groomsmen are as dapper as ever. I think the reason this wedding reaches out to me as it does, is that it is so very clear to see who Bailie Scott & Curtis Burgess are and I love that they used their wedding a place to show case that!

Marisa Rothstein & Nolan Robinson wanted a unique, slightly offbeat, fun wedding in a location was sure to fulfill their needs! Landing on the Housing Works Bookstore (which is a nonprofit), they choose to focus their money where they felt it was the most important. Opting out of traditional things such as cake cutting, tons of flowers and so forth, they instead wrote unique vows for one another and other creative elements. In lieu of a guestbook (and in keeping with the bookstore theme) Marisa & Nolan had utilized an adorable "card catalog" drawer to give guests a way to write their best wishes or a note of advice to the couple. As guests arrived, they were treated to Ketubah signing downstairs, while being able to enjoy a cocktail hour before the ceremony upstairs. Immediately following the ceremony the chairs were whisked away and the crowd was swept up in the Hora dance, complete with chair-lifting and everything. Following this, guests sat down for a meal and were treated to not only the traditional toasts but a fully prepared skit depicting the couple's story performed by Marisa's sister and friends!

First & foremost, I have serious case of floral envy going with this wedding, I mean, coooome on! I love the idea of bridesmaid dresses being mix matched in the first place, toss in mix matched succulent filled bouquets & I am going to stop dead in my tracks! I am dripping with envy kids! I loooove these bouquets! The Cutting Garden at Flora Grubb Gardens, your a quick new fave of mine, come hell or high water, we are some how doing something together down the road, but I digress! This wedding is adorable on so many levels from the bridal booties (which I love) to the ceremony location. The simplicity of the venue, coupled with the few perfectly hung light strands, this day time wedding is elevated to a level that even the most sophisticated of hipsters will find themselves swooning over...despite themselves! Enjoy this gorgeous wedding and be sure to leave this couple some love!

Rounding out the week, I figured I would end on a place that is calming & serene, like Lake Michigan! This little styled shoot has some great touches that are totally borrow worthy for those considering a seaside inspired theme for their wedding days. Perhaps my favorite touch over all is one well tied together element...Netting! The use of the netting on the table top is fantastic & I complete love the idea of it! Carrying that element on, what you might not realize at first, our bride's birdcage veil...yup thats netting! Fastened with some well placed pearl touches, this takes the idea of a veil and brings it right into the wheel house of the seaside theme. Lastly, the use of twine (like netting!) with seashell touches wrapped around the bouquets brings everything full circle! Have a Fantastic Sea Dreamy Weekend Everyone!!
