As a self-proclaimed design geek, I've always loved the pairing of contrasts. It makes for such interesting spaces and that is exactly why I love our first wedding. It is a gorgeous melding of urban loft meets vintage pretty from event and floral designer, Becca of A Stylish Soiree. And we seriously can't get enough of the ribbon wall and succulent centerpieces. Remember, this is just a snippet of the awesome wedding day. To see all of the pretty photographs by Evan Vanderwall, click on the gallery.
A note from Meagan, the Bride:
The second we got engaged, I was on the hunt for the perfect venue. Jason wanted industrial and cool and I wanted unique and pretty. We really hit the jackpot when we found the Hickory Street Annex and everything fell into place after that. It was very important to us to have a hand in the overall design of the wedding. My (now) husband, Jason was very much a source of inspiration to me. He is very creative and had a definite idea of what he wanted the day to feel like. I felt very lucky to have his input. I credit my mom for keeping me sane during the 9 months leading up to the big day, and Jason's mom helped me to sew the Eat, Drink and Be Married banner and also designed and made the programs using vintage hankies. Becca w/ A Stylish Soiree was amazing. She understood exactly what I wanted and made it happen. I am so lucky to have been able to pick her brain! Our photographer Evan really captured how fun and special the day was, and we are thrilled with the photos! The most special moment of the night was when Jason and I were pronounced husband and wife and we walked down the aisle with my son, Roman. It really was the start of our life together as a new family and I think we could all feel it. Those pictures are some of my favorites. Roman also killed it on the dance floor all night long, and the funny thing is, we had no idea he had even the slightest interest in dancing!
Everything was just how I imagined it would be and I can honestly say the day went off without a hitch. Thanks to our wonderful family and friends and our awesome vendors, we had the most amazing time and wouldn't change a thing!
