Amanda and Melody tied the knot after almost ten years of being together. Melody is an artist so aesthetics were key. They chose a geode theme and iridescent color scheme for the wedding details and decor. Melody brought her creative touches to the handmade bow ties, boutonnieres and bouquets made from Palo Santo and colorful gem stones, and elaborate table settings featuring black candle sticks, geodes, and photos of the couple. They even built their own geode-like backdrop for the photo booth and a friend created a fabulous geode cake.
Celebrating the anniversary of Ziggy Stardust with this glam rock David Bowie-inspired wedding inspiration
David Bowie’s iconic concept album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” was released 47(!) year ago on June 16, 1972, so it was more than fitting to showcase this amazing glam rock wedding inspiration right around the anniversary. The bride, groom, and their best crew were all in a band so they rocked their amazing outfits with metallics, velvet, fringe, tassels, faux fur, and tinsel.
Don’t miss the epic florals, star-shaped EVERYTHING, velvet suits, the bride’s jumpsuit, and the cake that any Bowie fan would love…
Mario Kart, an open mic, and an aisle walk through a fog machine(!) at this creative Chicago wedding
Heather and Tim rocked their creatively DIYed Chicago wedding with an eye on maximum fun and a comfortable atmosphere for their guests. It was totally a collaboration between themselves and their creative guests. Whether it was an area where people could play cards, battle at Mario Kart, or a hilarious open mic, everyone was in their element.
Just wait until you see how the bride walked down the aisle through a fog machine!
Steph and David wanted their wedding guests to feel like they were attending a party in their home. Steph made a piñata for the card box, cascarones (Mexican confetti bombs!) to throw after the ceremony, and a ton of fun table decor. Don’t miss the taco bar, pies and paletas for dessert, some serious dancing and video games, and, of course, piñatas. Steph and David had custom piñatas made to represent them: a cat for Steph and a dinosaur for David. Almost too cute to break!
Let’s hear from Steph about how it all came together…
You’re going to fall straight into love with the baby blue and sea foam green suits on these grooms. And once you’ve fallen hard for them, get ready to fall even harder for their colorful reception with a surprise drag show.
Chris and Anne’s Chicago elopement took place one April afternoon on the six year anniversary of the day they met. The guest list included immediate family, including their adorable pups, Coorah and Luka. Anne’s sister officiated the intimate lakefront ceremony on Lake Michigan underneath two budding trees.
Afterward, they hopped on a trolley and headed downtown to Stan’s Donuts for some Raspberry Bismarks.
