Worried that you and your fiancé’s style will never mesh when it comes to planning the big day? Today’s couple is here to show you that not only can it be done, but it can be done well. Especially when you call on the right team for help! Kelly + Eric trusted GATHER Events to transform their personal style and vibe into a celebration that embodied the fun couple. In the end that meant lots of bohemian macrame elements mixed with tradition and class. Dream!!
Eric told us a bit about the combination of styles: Everything was a representation of the contrast in our styles along with the similarities in our personalities. Kelly’s free spirit Bohemian style showed in her dress and decorations while I lean more on simplicity and went with a traditional tux for me and my groomsmen. We were able to blend in the music we both love and make sure it was a party we would want to be at. I think the day had something fun for everyone which made us both happy.
Jordan Voth captured all the day’s details—let’s have a look!
It’s easy to see why Kelly’s Rue de Seine dress was a focal point for the day! LOVE the fringe!
GATHER Events tells us: As designers, one of the key elements of our job is to read our couple’s personal style and find ways to translate it into a wedding that is a true reflection of them. Kelly’s Earth-centric and eclectic style became the foundation that we built the design concept around.
THIS. When your planners + designers decide to build the entire wedding inspiration around your dress, you know your style is on point!
Kelly’s messy low bun and natural makeup were created by the talented Erin Skipley.
Kelly and her girls carried bouquets featuring succulents and greenery from Julia’s Floral. SO pretty against the blush tones!
K+E are such a great example of blending styles to create a truly unique and personalized look!
Paper Moxie created the loveliest paper designs for the evening!
And that macrame installation by Cage and Call?! Perfection.
For Eric, it was a mix of waiting for the ceremony to begin in the private room and then being in the moment in front of everyone as she came down the isle. You go from knowing what is about to happen to it happening and then it's over.
For Kelly, it was finally getting to meet Eric down the aisle and reciting each other vows. They were simple, sweet and true. The whole day that led up to the most important part of the wedding.
Processional: Mess is Mine by Vance Joy
Recessional: Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root
First Dance: Secret Garden by Bruce Springsteen
Kelly + Eric wed at Within Sodo, a former industrial + storage warehouse turned venue space!
Oooooh, this lounge! PJ Hummel & Co brought in the furniture rentals for a cozy, bohemian space.
Focus on the big picture and things that matter. Don't get hung up on little details that can stress you out and detract you from your ultimate goal.
When flawless design meets sweet treats, we’re basically in heaven!
Such a beautiful day, right?? Many congrats to Kelly + Eric from all of us at GWS!
