I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

We are definitely feeling the spirit of the season this week and are so excited to share with you, Chelsea and Joe’s winter wedding at Riverlodge Place in Thompson, Manitoba, Canada, which was about as dreamy as it gets! Chelsea’s soft blush gown, the bridesmaids faux fur shawls, the groom’s dapper black suit–oh my! We are soooo loving all of these chilly winter images shot by Sugar & Soul Photography and are feeling the romance in the air!

What made the wedding special and unique?

Having our wedding in winter gave it that touch of uniqueness right off the hop. The wedding was totally immersed in “northern” touches, from the foot of snow that had fallen only a week prior, to the fur shawls, to the girls footwear (lazy moccasins). The venue also gave the wedding a very special feel, with the beautiful exposed beams.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

My dress was chosen after trying on many… and I mean many dresses at several different stores. My mother, sister and I made the long 8 hour drive to Winnipeg just to try on dresses. We met up with my maid of honour and spent 3 days, and 7 appointments trying on dress after dress. Each evening we went over the “top 3 to beat” with input from several friends and family members. This dress was never on anyone’s list but mine. It kept popping up in the back of my mind, so I knew, regardless of what anyone else thought, it was the one. I couldn’t get over the keyhole back and the slight pink hue. Designed by Stella York, it was the perfect mix of classic/vintage and modern.

What were some touches added to make it personal?

Obviously having our families travel great distances through awful weather made it very special and personal. But, the most personal touch of the day was having one of my best childhood friends, Mike, marry us. Although it took some convincing, he agreed and we couldn’t imagine anyone who would have been more perfect for the role. It was just so great being surrounded by all of our supportive friends and families.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Without a doubt, the ceremony was the most memorable part of the day. Once I walked down the aisle and the ceremony started, we were able to zone out everything else. All of the plans, all of the little details, the stress, they were over. This was what all the planning was for. So in that moment we were able to forget it all, and just focus on each other. It was a great feeling to finally be married in front of our friends and family, after so many years together.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met when we started working together. A few years later we started to date… to the bosses dismay, as the boss just so happened to be my father. 8 years later, after getting a dog, buying a house and being grilled by my family for years, Joe proposed. On Christmas Eve, he took me to Pisew Falls, some gorgeous water falls 45 minutes from home (one of my favourite places). After exploring the falls and the trails, right before heading back home, he proposed. He couldn’t have planned it better.

Anne and Prasad chose Chicago as the backdrop fo rtheir big day. We absolutely adore the chic modern vibe of their details and venue! No surprise that the event was so gorgeous, seeing as how it was designed by Jesse of Bliss Weddings and Events and shot by Roey Yohai Photography. We know you chic city gals are going to LOVE this one!

What made the wedding special and unique?

It sounds cliche to say this, but really the day was incredibly special because of all the family and close friends that traveled all the way to Chicago to be with us for this day. How often do you get to celebrate such an important moment in life with everyone who is near and dear to you? It was also very special for me personally (Anne) to have our reception at the Art Institute – I went there so many times as a child growing up in Chicago and have many wonderful memories of my visits, and it will always be near and dear to my heart. To be able to celebrate such an important life event there was truly wonderful.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

The gown was a Monique Lhullier that I got at Mark Ingram Atelier in New York City. I actually saw a picture of it for the first time at a bridal salon in Chicago. I was there with my mom trying on dresses, and she just happened to be sitting in a chair that was next to a table with a placard featuring a model in the gown walking down the runway. She casually said, “What about this one?” Initially, I was completely opposed to long-sleeves. They seemed so conservative and boring! But when I tried it on, I fell in love. I can’t even describe how amazing it made me feel to wear that dress on my wedding day – it perfectly expressed my style and made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world.

What were some touches added to make it personal?

To say that Prasad and I are obsessed with our yellow Lab, Sergeant, is an understatement! We were obviously devastated when we found out that he couldn’t be part of the wedding (apparently museums don’t really allow dogs), but we wanted to incorporate him into the day somehow. Our stationer helped us do this by including him in various places on our invitation suite, as well as all the escort cards. It was something small, but made us feel like he was still part of this day.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

For me, it was walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Prasad at the end waiting for me. All the months of planning had culminated in that moment, and the emotions were overwhelming. I was smiling and almost crying at the same time (there is one picture that captures what this looks like perfectly – it is an interesting look, to say the least!). It’s really an incredible moment, and I will remember it forever.

For Prasad, the speeches at the wedding reception were the most memorable part of the day, especially the one his dad gave, which was very emotional and heartfelt (there were a lot of people with “something in their eyes” after that one). The party, of course, was also one of his favorites parts of the day, since he got to show off all his Michael Jackson dance moves!

Prasad and I met at a bar / ping pong hall in NYC, if you can believe it! I was living next door to one of his good friends from home at the time, and he invited me to one of their mutual friends’ 30th birthday parties. It was a Friday night, and I was pretty tired after a long day of work, but I decided to go anyway. Good thing I did!

Our proposal was low key and very “us.” It was the Friday night before MLK weekend in January 2013. Prasad and I are a bit nerdy, and one of our favorite things to do together is very large, intricate jigsaw puzzles. We were working on a 2000-piece puzzle of Times Square at the time that Prasad had purchased when we were in Chicago visiting my family for Christmas a few weeks before. We ordered some Mexican delivery, and got to work on finishing the puzzle as soon as I got home since we were determined to finish that night! Moments before the food arrived, we were down to the last piece. Prasad handed it to me and told me I could put it in (which he NEVER does – it’s tradition for him to put the last piece in). He casually mentioned that it looked like there was writing on the back. I turn it over and see a few words, and think “Oh, how nice! He wrote me a little note!” I still don’t quite understand what’s happening, so he tells me that it’s connected to a larger note that he wrote on the back of the puzzle. I attempt to turn over the corner of the puzzle where the note is, but of course I can’t, so Prasad has to do it for me! Meanwhile, the food arrives, so I get busy in the kitchen putting everything on plates. By the time I get back to the living room with the food, Prasad has flipped over the puzzle pieces so I can read the full note, which (without getting too personal) describes how much he loves me and how he feels I’m his missing piece. I’m still not quite registering what’s going on, but when I look up, Prasad is down on one knee with the ring! My first response is “Are you serious?!” Not my finest moment, but I am in complete shock at this point, and so happy! I eventually manage to get a huge “YES!” out of my mouth! We hug and kiss, and then celebrate by eating Mexican food and watching cheesy game shows on TV. It was the perfect night.

Nicole and Mike were inspired by the glam and romance of the 1930’s art deco style, so they decided to carry that inspiration over for their wedding day! We are over-the-top obsessed with how much personality and creativity they put into the look of their big day, and are head over heels for their chandelier inspired cake by Hey There, Cupcake! We know you are going to LOVE these images by Studio Castillero!

What made the wedding special and unique?

This wedding was inspired by the fantastical glamour of 1930’s Hollywood. Art deco and art nouveau designs permeated throughout the wedding. To start, vintage telegram save-the-dates and gilded invitations set the tone. The locale, Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa, provided the perfect backdrop. The Spanish-Colonial architecture is reminiscent of old Hollywood mansions and it provided a seamless event from ceremony to reception without pause. Gypsy jazz musicians, Zzymzzy Quartet, set the mood as guests arrived. The wedding party embodied elegance in mis-matching neutral toned sparkling gowns and varying grey 3-piece suits. Once the ceremony concluded, everyone was escorted to the cocktail lawn party. Croquet and libations were enjoyed as valets presented seating cards on silver platters. Unexpectedly hot air balloons floated in the sky making it truly magical.

Guests were then greeted to the reception’s ballroom with an overflowing champagne tower. The white and wrought iron-accented room incorporated many intricate and glowing details. Set upon the metallic sequined tablescapes with emerald accents were Isari Flower Studio’s sculptural, yet soft and romantic floral arrangements. The nouveau-esque flowers were placed inside terrariums and trophies, all flanked by candlelight. The final presentation was the cake. It was inspired by a deco chandelier turned upside down, which was perfectly executed by Hey There, Cupcake!

The sophistication of it all was beyond comprehension. What made it one of a kind was being surrounded by our nearest and dearest in celebration of our union.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

Nicole’s mother visited the couple at their home in San Francisco to help shop for the gown. The two ladies scurried all over town having a ball in one store after another. Once Nicole tried on Reem Acra’s Lady Slipper dress at the Bridal Galleria, Nicole knew it was the one. The dress was made of silk charmeuse, which is the fabric often worn by many Hollywood sirens in the 1930s; however, this dress’ style was simple, modern, and could be gussied up with accessories that made it unique. Deco-style crystal accents, a cathedral-length veil, and a white fur shawl completed the look. This dress became the inspiration for the wedding’s theme.

What were some touches added to make it personal?

The little things. Specific songs were played throughout the wedding that were important to the bride and groom, their parents, and friends. Jazz also fit the wedding’s theme and was intentionally thought of in honor of Michael’s father who is a jazz aficionado. During the ceremony the jazz quartet played their rendition of a song by The Cure, one of Nicole’s favorite bands, as Nicole walked down the aisle escorted by her father, the host, and stepfather. Nicole’s blue sequined purse was something old and something blue; it is a family heirloom handmade 70 years ago by Nicole’s great-grandmother for Nicole’s grandmother. Nicole also wore a ring from her grandmother who could not attend. The something borrowed was a heart-shaped diamond necklace that belongs to Nicole’s beloved mother. Everything in the wedding, including the experience of it all, was something new. The “love bird” cake toppers, 2 crows, were picked because they reminded the couple of themselves. Lastly, Mike and Nicole worked on their wedding vows together, so they were authentic and heartfelt.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

BRIDE: Absolutely everything! Just to experience the day in its entirety was incredible. From small details like waking up in the morning, to big events, like getting married, stick in my memory so vividly. Also witnessing the details of my vision and style coming to fruition was so amazing. (Enormous thanks to the extraordinary collaboration with Francine Ribeau Events who really made this wedding come to life.) What I am also really proud of is how Studio Castillero Photography nailed my challenging request to capture portraits that look as if the Old Dutch Masters painted them. They’re just so cool.

GROOM: The ceremony. It was one of the few moments in my life where everyone around us disappeared and I became aware that I was experiencing a major life milestone. That was very special.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We used to work together in 2008. In our first meeting Nicole had a cold and greeted Mike on his first day at his new job by sneezing on his keyboard. Assuming Mike was a threat to her job’s position, Nicole growled while sanitizing said keyboard. Thereafter she walked away while coughing up a storm. Mike was smitten.

Nicole would have known something was up if Mike made plans for a romantic evening. Lucky for Mike, Nicole made dinner plans at the Pelican Inn at Muir Beach just to have a romantic Saturday date.

The couple arrived an hour early and decided to go on a stroll to the beach. They found their way to a bench set on a cliff overlooking the water. Unbeknownst to Nicole, Mike was nervous but acted cool. He made his first attempt at the proposal by saying how much he loved her. Nicole did not seem to pick up what was about to happen and asked, “What’s with the mushiness?” Undiscouraged, Mike thought to change the setting. He suggested they hike further for a better vantage point of the setting sun. Finding the right spot Mike stopped, turned to face Nicole and said, “I’ve loved you since I first laid eyes on you.” Again, Nicole said densely, “Really? When I sneezed on your desk?” Despite the distraction Mike kept on. He got down on his knee and asked Nicole to be his wife. Finally Nicole realized the momentousness at what Mike was hinting all evening. Without hesitation Nicole said, “YES!” Eventually they made their way back to the Pelican Inn to enjoy their first dinner as a newly engaged couple. It was perfect! Mike loves hiking, Nicole loves British pubs, and they love each other.

Bobbie Jean and Alan decided that the most idyllic way to marry one another was to whisk away to Beltane Ranch in Sonoma for a romantic elopement, with the groom’s parents there as witnesses. They could not have picked a more gorgeous day (or location!) to exchange vows, and we are totally in love with the sweet details of the day, captured by White Ivory Photography.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

I wanted a simple gown that was comfortable and fun (with pockets)! It was purchased at Traditions by Anna in Raleigh, NC. And I just loved the name of the designer, Lula Kate! The beaded accent at the waist was added by my seamstress and I chose to wear a french lace bolero to add a vintage touch.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Some of the most memorable parts of the day was the morning we said I do which included breakfast and feeding the properties horses. Alan spent time with his dad at a local baseball card shop and the I spent the day with my future mother-in-law whom I consider to be my “mom”. It was also special to have her walk me down the path to my groom who was waiting for me with his best man–his dad. They served as our witnesses which meant so much.

We met several years prior at the gym, he said I impressed him with my arm exercises! The proposal was the day of the Alan’s parents’ 35th wedding anniversary! Our English bulldog carried the ring to me in a sock which was inspiration for the Alan’s wedding day socks!

One of our favorite details from Kacie and Tyler’s beautiful wedding was the idea to record 30 second toasts from friends and family, which was then shared at their rehearsal dinner. We absolutely love how sentimental this couple was with all the details of their wedding day! You can read more of their story as you follow along with the gorgeous images by Magnolia Adam’s Photography. We can’t not mention Kacie’s silver Olia Zavozina gown. Our hearts are all aflutter!!!! Silver? Yes! Silver!!!!!! We are in love!

Tell us about the gown!

Kacie wanted something unique and different but still beautiful. She loves things with stories and meanings. When she met Olia they connected on multiple levels. Both starting a business, same age and there was a definite connection. The gown that Olia showed her had just been the finale down the runway of her last show and Olia said she felt like she had made it for her. The name of the dress was Katie and it was so close to Kacie she knew it was for her.

What were some touches added to make the day personal?

When folks arrived at the hotel, guests were handed a “welcome box” that included our favorite snacks, water and a list of our favorite things to do and see in the area. Our programs- we used our programs as a personalized thank you letter introducing each person in our wedding and highlighting some of our favorite characteristics and attributes. We had a “Family Dance” so instead of having multiple traditional dances with mom/son dad/daughter, we did one family dance mixing all family and did the electric slide to get people out on the dance floor and having fun. Because we both love humor (and are both in our 30’s), upon pronouncement of husband and wife, we had two trumpet players stand up and play the hallelujah chorus. The trumpets then led all the guests in a parade like manner over to our reception venue playing Mardi Gras style. The humor continued with a 60 second rendition of “At Last” upon introduction of the Martins at the reception. Guests left with hand blended loose leaf tea (because we own a tea shop) titled “Kacie and Tyler, a perfect blend”. I loved having honor attendants line the aisle to help give me away (representing how Christ thru community has been such a game changer for me). And how my sweet husband hand wrote thank you notes to all of our guests staying at the hotel thanking them for being a part of our celebration (they were delivered to each hotel room during the reception so our guests received them after they returned to their rooms).

Having everyone you love in one place at one time. The times in your life that happens are weddings or funerals, so we wanted it to be a giant celebration. We worked so hard to make it not just about us, we wanted our guests to be able to celebrate and feel cared for.

Kacie and Tyler had a mutual friend that they went to church with that suggested they meet. This mutual friend strategically arranged their meeting and they met on the 3rd of July but Tyler felt the sparks the night.

For the proposal- Kacie had arranged a weekend get away with her girls group from church. They wanted to just get away and hang out. Tyler had a scheduled bachelor weekend but instead he flew in his family from Alabama and had Kacie’s family drive in. On their last morning Tyler had hidden himself in the cabin along with her entire family and he came out to surprise her and propose in front of everyone that meant the world to them. It was also the first time he told her he loved her.
