Glamourous Black + Gold Wedding: Nicole + Matt

giant gold glitter heart wedding

Seriously, some days we just wanna shout, “Bring on the glam!” Today is one of those days + we couldn’t have a more perfect wedding to share, that perfectly suits our super-sparkly mood. Nicole + Matt worked with the talented team at Bob Gail Special Events to bring their ideal wedding environment to life. For these cuties, it was all about details like the giant 8×8′ gold glitter heart, the gorgeous sequined chevron table runners, and the giant candy corner with a customized “Candy Land” sign that made their day feel so unique and just so “them”. Making it yours is what it’s all about, right?! And since we know many of you are currently struggling to find the perfect venue for your big day, let’s hear a bit from Nicole about how she + Matt found their dream space:

Matt and I had been together almost 9 years when we got engaged. About 2 months after the proposal, we quickly started planning. Matt and I went to a few different venues. Saw many ballrooms and really weren’t feeling it. Having been together for nearly a decade, we knew we wanted one thing…a party. We wanted a venue that was open, and had lots of character. I had some ideas that I just didn’t think would fit in at a ballroom. While looking for venues, I came across Vibiana. I had never in my life seen anything as beautiful as this place. We did a site visit and we were sold! Our date was set and the planning had begun.

Thanks so much to onelove photography for the super gorge images + big congrats to happy couple on a beautiful day!

More from Nicole, Vibiana is a very large venue, and with 150 people we had some filling to do. We added in 4 lounge vignettes. My favorite one was the large black and white striped couch with the gold sequined pillows. Our escort table was made up of gold glittered lips for the girls, and black glittered mustaches for the guys. The lighting was stunning with a large pink heart on the ceiling.

And don’t miss Nicole + Matt’s beautiful wedding film by Elysium Productions:

A few closing words from the beautiful bride: The day was absolutely perfect. After being together for so long, it was a huge celebration. The love was tangible. We got the party we asked for which ended with some dancing on chairs! Many of our guests said the best part about our wedding was that Matt and I were equally having as much fun as all the guests. 

They say the day goes by fast and it’s true. You will never be able to control that. But fast or slow, that day was the most magical day of our lives.

Congrats, again, to Nicole + Matt!

Spontaneous Morning Elopement Inspiration

greenhouse elopement

It’s no secret that we support the idea of an intimate elopement just as much as we love a big wedding! So we were pretty excited when we saw this beautiful editorial, dreamt up by Kathryn + Perry of Our Love Is Loud, pop into our inbox. Celebrating a small, spontaneous ceremony – or as K + P tell it, a morning celebration, just a bride and groom with their best friends…with coffee and doughnuts after! –  this feature is all about staying true to + doing what feels right to you as a couple! Let’s hear a little bit more backstory from Kathryn before checking out the beautiful photos:

The storyline of the shoot came from the idea of a couple deciding to elope one random weekend. The idea is they whip up some fun invitations (the ones we created were literally made from newsprint paper from an art store and printed on a home printer), email friends with details, buy a dress at a local boutique, rent an Airbnb for getting ready, call a couple restaurants in town, hop on a plane and make it happen.

A lot of times, the goal of an elopement is to eliminate extra stress and focus on what the day is really all about – you guys! In keeping with this mindset, Kathryn + Perry made the shoot’s invites from newsprint paper from an art store and printed them themselves on a printer at home.

We’re pretty into this setting, aren’t you? Perfect for a unique elopement. Every time Kathryn visited her local succulent shop, City Floral Greenhouse, she would envision the sweetest, intimate wedding ceremony taking place there. So she decided to take matters into her own hands + ask some friends (a real married couple) to pose for some photos and get the chance to renew their vows to one another in the process! Love it!

A greenhouse wedding calls for extra-cool flowers! And Beet & Yarrow definitely brought the cool! We l-o-v-e that magnolia leaf bouquet above and are swooning over that white king protea below!

We held a real cocktail hour with friends of the bride and groom at a local home decor shop called Ironwood Collective, and then had a family style dinner together down the street at Gozo. It was such an incredible night! We ended with toasts, coffee, and pie! It literally felt like a real wedding filled with excitement and meaning.

In closing the team says, We know that a big, expensive wedding shebang is not in the cards for everyone. This style of wedding/elopement is perfect for that adventurous couple who is perhaps looking to drop some serious cash on a month long honeymoon in Europe and would rather do something small for the I dos!

Big thanks to the very talented creatives below for showing us how it’s done!
