Intimate Coffee Shop Wedding Inspiration

Coffee Shop Inspiration

The premise of today’s editorial, captured by Our Love Is Loud, is pretty fun. It starts with an adorable couple dreaming of tying the knot in a city they’ve never been, with their very best friends and family in tow. They rent an Airbnb for getting ready, book a planner, a photographer, and small, stylish venue (in this case Black Eye Coffee Shop in Denver) and the planning simply starts (and ends) there! The great thing about planning an easy-going elopement like this is that it can realistically fall into place in a month or less. It only took the team responsible for this shoot a week to pull it all together, and we’re definitely loving what they dreamt up…

From planner + stylist Nicole of Hey! Party Collective, This shoot was created in one week with a great group of vendors in Denver and with one (REAL) crazy-in-love couple! The purpose of this shoot was to showcase once again that weddings don’t have to be cookie cutter, fussy or in any way complicated! We think above all a wedding should simply be a celebration, a party, a mile marker. A day to pause, to take the moment in. A day to make pledges, to say all those things you’ve already said, but this time in front of your best friends and family as witnesses.

Romantic Candlelit North Dakota Wedding: Brook + Matthew

North Dakota Wedding

Brook + Matthew always wanted to get married outdoors, but it was too big of a risk in September in North Dakota. To give their day an organic, natural feel, they chose to tie the knot at sixteen03Main in Bismarck, North Dakota, turning the venue into a romantic, candlelit soirée, reminiscent of a night in a garden. (Swoon!)

Brook tells us, We made the day about the two of us by adding personal touches to the ceremony and reception. All of the details of the reception were designed by myself to make it feel intimate and as much like us as possible.

Thanks so much to Glasser Images for the stunning images + congrats to B + M on such a gorgeous day!

Quinn from Glasser Images says, I knew Matthew was anxious to see Brook, but his reaction was more emotional than I could have imagined. It’s one of my favorite first looks of all time!

Since Brook wanted candlelit to be the only light source at the wedding, she + Matthew got creative with coming up with dreamy ways to light up the dark refurbished factory space.

Matt was a professionally trained opera singer so he surprised me and sang at our ceremony. He sang a Neapolitan song "o sole mio".

We both live in Arizona so making sure everything was in place was hard. We didn't have anyone planning the wedding. My advice would be to put someone in charge of keeping you on track the day of your wedding. Or hire a wedding planner!

The Color Story: Rose Gold

Sarah Seven Blush Dress

How many of you caught yesterday’s fun Color Story feature, conceptualized by Rachael of lace and likes?

We’re lovin’ this feature because it really shows how to use color in an interesting way, and teaches us that sticking to a platte or vibe is the way to go. For a cohesive look, don’t pick too many hues, but you don’t have to settle on too few either. As you’ll see in Joielala’s pretty captures below, layering blush, lilacs and magentas was key in bringing this rose gold scene to life!
