This is genius, I tell you: a short lace dress from Madewell paired with a tulle skirt overlay and voila! wedding dress perfection. The other genius part of this day is the uber sweet, totally love-filled picnic wedding complete with blankets in the grass and peach favors from The Peach Truck. It’s beautiful and the photographs from Lily Glass are guaranteed to leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling. Grab a looky loo at the rest of the day here.
From Lily Glass Photography… I had the pleasure of photographing Arthur + Reika Kadlec’s simple yet stunning summer wedding. They were married during an intimate family ceremony in an old stone chapel in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, on June 8th with a picnic reception at Art’s childhood home to follow. Reika’s dress was a labor of love as she searched for the perfect style, finally creating one herself pairing a short lace dress from Madewell with a custom-made sheer skirt.
Every detail of their wedding day was meaningful and intentional — from the vintage china to grandma’s linens, to the juicy delicious peach favors their friends from The Peach Truck brought up from Nashville, to their choosing a caterer that provides not only delicious food but also social justice (Freedom a la cart).
Art and Reika have such a sincere love that encourages and sharpens those with whom they come into contact — their love makes you want to love better, to love genuinely. And so it was no surprise that their wedding was a celebration to begin their lives together, but also a downright party during which they danced and hugged and high-fived the friends and family that they hold so dear. There were folks from all over the world and never have I seen wedding guests intermingle so well as this evening, which I think testifies greatly to the kind of folks that Art+Reika are.
