A whole lotta pretty just fell into my inbox with this one guys! This wedding is a rustic yet majorly chic affair right after my own heart! Shannon Mann & Jonathan Mann take us on a wedding day journey featuring a stop with Jonathan at the barber shop & steal a moment with the couple as they do a separated by a door ‘First Look’ prayer. Our couple wanted a gorgeously styled day of celebration with touches of vintage flare and inspiration. Chicken coupe wire was used to display the escort cards, while time weathered kitchen items added in the dessert table display. At every turn wonderful old soda crates were used for guest items like paper parasols which guest were able to provide themselves with shade while seated on gorgeous outdoor furniture. There are so many fine touches that comprise the overall design aesthetic we know this will be an instant favorite!

The Ride– Why bother with a traditional limo when a stunning pearly white classic ride is at your finger tips! Vintage/Classic cars are an instant way to really put a finger print on your overall aesthetic & feel for the day. Whether your theme is modern or maybe something more vintage inspired, these graceful giants are one stellar way to make an entrance!
The Escort Cards– Love, love, LOVE these!! Such a simple yet brilliant idea. Using repurposed frames, frame up some chicken coupe wire, use die cut doily shaped name cards & finish by pinning with mini clothes pins. Its a simple touch but one that gives just the perfect amount of rustic elegance, what keeps it modern & upscale however are the choices of font & print job. We are big big fans of this one!
The Cupcake Scale– Scrumptious cupcakes on a majorly old, time weathered scale as part of the dessert tablescape, GENIUS! I think you’d be hard pressed to find a more creative, simple & fun way to display your cupcakes, we welcome any future challengers though!
Bridal Style– We’re big fans of Shannon’s bridal style & its not very hard to understand why, just look at her! Her form fitting lace dress with open back is simply divine and we love that she opted for an elbow length veil to give a slight sheer playful element to that open back! Pulling her hair up in a textured gibson, Shannon’s stunning natural features were only enhanced by the up do as well as the smoky eye & light lips. The overall effect is one of classic beauty that many future brides to be would be well served to style after. Remember ladies, pick a feature to highlight & let the rest play supporting cast! Well done Shannon, we love it!
