There is so much lovely going on in this wedding I am not sure where to start! Our adorable couple, Tamara Unruh & Steve Fitchner, decided to spend their day surrounded in burlap & lace! Such a fun, vintage inspired pairing of textures, which does wonders for setting a romantic stage. Our couple incorporated many DIY projects into their overall aesthetic to achieve their rustic chic look. The aisles where lined with tall vases filled with stones, flowers & floating candles while guests were treated to a gorgeous spread of tasty treats & baked goods. As they made their way around, guest were directed to leave love notes for our couple in a well styled display featuring a vintage type writer, moss covered initials, old school vintage suitcases, and so much more! Perhaps however the most shocking detail of note, our poor bride's mother actually fell and broke her hip the day before the wedding!! Having the good fortune of being released the morning of the wedding, she was escorted by an ambulance & medics in order to be able to attend her daughter's wedding! Swoon & Pin away my friends!

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!
