Ok you guys, this is AH-dorable! Leah and Matt invited their dearest friends and family to the Tremont Taphouse for a “surprise birthday party” for Leah, but soon informed their loved ones that the surprise was on them and that they were actually at the couple’s wedding! Event planner Brigit Jade, had her work cut out for her with the challenge of creating an ceremony altar that wouldn’t be a dead give-away. She nailed it with subtle florals by Urban Orchid and a super cool graphic theme. The look was organic, modern, and simple, featuring succulents, muted tones and neutral woods. Mann & Wife Visual Storytellers ere on had to capture all the excitement and joy of Leah and Matt and the people who love them. Too sweet!
from the team: The thing that made this wedding so unique and special is that no one (besides the bride and groom) knew that the couple was getting married on Saturday July 9, 2016. Friends and family gathered assuming that they were showing up to Leah’s surprise 30th birthday bash. Little did they know they were actually in for the surprise of a lifetime! Matt and Leah weren’t engaged, so the look on everyone’s face when Matt announced that the surprise was actually on the guests and that they were going to be wed was just so special and unforgettable.
Guests feasted on small plates and an open bar while the bride and groom took photos with their mastiff, Winston (who also happened to walk down the aisle before the bride!). After dinner, guests were treated to a Spotify playlist and donuts from Jack Frost.
The design for this wedding was a little challenging and unlike any other event that Brigit Jade had designed before. She had to keep the decor and altar discreet enough so that when guests arrived, the surprise wasn’t blown. The decor directly reflected the couple: organic, modern, and simple. The design board featured succulents, muted tones, neutral woods and modern signage. The most important element for Leah and Matt was the love shared between everyone there, not the price tag of their event.
