Pastel lace and Billie Holiday for a couple of classy Denver brides

Michelle and Angela did the coordinating-but-not-matching thing at their wedding in Denver last August. A lace cocktail dress for one, a lace skirt with button-up and a frickin' slick jacket for the other. Hints of tattoos peek here and there from both. I'm personally loving the dual Marilyn-Monroe pose with both brides fighting against the wind! CUTE. But Michelle and Angela weren't the only ones on their style game that day — their officiant rocked a clerical collar and stole with jeans, boots, and a sleeveless shirt perfect for showing off tattoos.

Fun things to look at abound in these photos! The centerpieces in particular have my attention. Vinyl records, glass telegraph insulators, classic novels, mirrors, flowers, teapots. Eclectic as hell, and it all looks so good together, I'm wondering how I can get that aesthetic on my bookshelves at home.
