Stacy and Jamie could not have chosen a more perfect venue for their August, 2014 wedding. This couple has a serious love affair with music and wanted their wedding to feel more or less like a great concert with a wedding attached. With that in mind, the Overture Center's Capitol Theater stage provided the perfect backdrop for this musically-infused ceremony and reception.
One of my favorite parts of this wedding were the sumptuous greenery-infused floral arrangements, bouquets, chuppah and candle arrangements created by Flora by Jamae.
Instead of traditional place cards, Stacy and Jaime had these tickets made by Fresh Paper Studios, with the colors coordinating with the guests' meal choices. So clever.
One of the benefits of working with the Overture Center is that you have access to their professional team of lighting designers, who created an amazing starlight backdrop and chandelier combination for Stacy and Jamie's reception.
And last, but certainly not least, Stacy and Jamie enlisted the services of This Must Be The Band, a Talking Heads cover band, to entertain their guests. Needless to say, the dance floor was packed all night long.
Thanks, Stacy and Jamie for having us be a part of this amazing day! And, many thanks to Queens and Hearts Photography for all of the images of this celebration.
Hi, friends! My most sincere apologies for the blog silence this summer! It's been a crazy/awesome/busy/wonderful few months. So, to catch you all up on where I've been and what I've been up to, I'll be sharing some of this summer's fantastic weddings with you over the next few weeks.
Leah & Dan take us all the way back to April with their wedding at the Wisconsin State Capitol and reception at the High Noon Saloon. This day was a unique and fun fusion of soft, vintage details, karaoke and classic, Wisconsin food and drink. All of these lovely photos were taken by the ever-so-amazing Bobbi of The Salty Peanut Photography.
I specifically remember leaving my first meeting with Leah and Dan with a desperation for them to hire me. Part of that was because they are just that cool, but it also had a lot to do with their team of vendors, like Daffodil Parker. Aren't these flowers amazing? I love the variety and texture in these arrangements and bouquets. Also, Leah and Dan were master floral re-purposers: in between the ceremony and reception the ladies from Daffodil Parker filled dozens of bud vases with the flowers in the ceremony arrangements to grace the reception tables. So creative.
Isn't this one of the loveliest group of ladies you've ever seen? Me, too. I love how Leah styled her bridesmaids, from the soft blue JCrew dresses to the sumptuous bouquets and the wraps she gave them as a gift. Such a great look.
Oh, how I love A La Crate Vintage Rentals! This day featured plenty of their custom chalkboard writing and signage, sugar molds, suitcases, and much more.
And finally, there was great food (from Blue Plate Catering), a karaoke dance party led by The Gomers, a photo booth, a cigar bar, and last (but certainly not least) a live broadcast of the Wisconsin Badgers final four basketball game. In short, Leah and Dan know how to party and created one of the most fun nights of my 2014 wedding season.
