Vegas Pop Up Elopement: Breanne + Mike

Vegas Pop Up Elopement

We couldn’t think of a better way to end the week than with Breanne + Mike’s colorful + fun Vegas pop-up elopement! The brains behind the pop-up shop that helped them get hitched is Victoria Hogan, founder + owner of Flora Pop. Victoria created her pop-up elopements from a desire to give couples a chic alternative to the typical Vegas wedding. With her hand-built teardrop trailer in tow, she transforms any location into the perfect wedding venue! Pretty rad, right?

The concept was perfect for Breanne + Mike, who wanted their wedding day to be simple, yet eclectic. Their day started at a vintage motel in downtown Las Vegas called the El Cid. (The facade just so happened to match perfectly with Breanne’s teal heals – it was meant to be!) Flora Pop crafted Bre’s bouquet of dahlias + anemones, and the fun was all captured thanks to Gaby Jeter!

Victoria tells us, Mike was full of jokes and kept us laughing the whole time, but the moment they kissed it was sweet & romantic, just like in any fairytale love story.

Thank goodness gold was considered an acceptable part of the cream color palette, ’cause there were tons of gold details sprinkled throughout the venue that we just loved.

You might remember we mentioned there’d be an INCRED dance-off prize from Wanderable (the honeymoon registry that allows you to register for actual experiences instead of things) this year. Well, they teamed up Mr. & Mrs. Smith (who has spent the last decade checking into the world’s most stylish, inspiring and romantic boutique hotels) and gifted a 7-night honeymoon in France to the ultra lucky winners! In total, the prize was valued at over $5,000. Um, wow!

But some good news! We all get to share in the fun because Wanderable is offering all our friends reading this $20 off their first experience (aka a Wanderable credit) when you sign up using this link!

Don’t you totally feel like you were there?

We want to give a big, huge thanks to every single creative below who put together such a fun + inspiring night! And pop on over to 100 Layer Cake and Grey Likes Weddings to see even more!

Romantic Mountain Getaway Wedding: Jessica + Nick

North Carolina Mountain Wedding

Jessica, an illustrator, and Nick, a musician/designer, live in Brooklyn, New York, far away from family and some of their closest friends. They wanted to have their wedding in a place that was beautiful + meaningful – and convenient for their guests – so they settled on Grove Park Inn Country Club in Asheville, North Carolina for its location + beauty. We just love how they creatively incorporated their trades + talents into their beautiful woodland-inspired celebration. Let’s hear more about how they did it from Jessica:

Nick and I both work in creative fields, so the wedding was a reflection of our creative spirits coming together. It felt really natural to be inspired by the organic beauty of the mountains and history of North Carolina, because we both incorporate so much of that in our work already. Illustrating the invitations, table numbers, and other paper goods made it feel so special and personal.

Thanks so much to Brett & Jessica for sending this sweet wedding our way and big congrats to the newlyweds!

The most memorable moment by far was making our vows to one another. We wrote our own vows and didn't share them with each other until the ceremony. Our guests were surprised that we didn't share them beforehand because they matched up so perfectly!

At the end of the day, the most important thing is the person you chose to spend your life with - so don't worry about every little detail. It will all come together as it is meant to!
