Maybe it’s because my own wedding happened in a converted industrial space, but this pretty little number held at The Cotton Warehouse from Kaitie Bryant Photography is hitting all the high-notes in my book! Styled impeccably by a bridesmaid + the mother-of-the-bride, the couple’s love for music and reading was highlighted through DIY-touches and charming details like the sheet-music guest book. See the rest of this sweet event in the full gallery.
From Kaitie Bryant Photography… Brent and Rachael’s day was lovely in every way. Rachael’s friend and bridesmaid, Britney Ray, offered to style the wedding and do the flower bouquets (with Britney’s super-talented mom) and they did an AMAZING job. Britney made everything for her wedding and it was incredible, so I knew Rachael’s wedding would be quality style too. Brent and Rachael are avid readers, and they read together as a couple, so books played a unique role in the decor. Books they had read or were currently reading were spread throughout the venue with the story behind the book. Also, there were favorite books of Brent and Rachael’s parents arranged next to pictures of family members on their wedding days. Along with their love for reading, both Brent and Rachael love music, so guests were given sheet music to write notes on for the couple. One of my favorite unique elements of the wedding was the table numbers — each table in the reception was given a number that had special significance to Brent and Rachael. One table had the number of days they would spend in Jamaica for their honeymoon, another was 88 for the number of keys on a piano (one of the favorite instruments) and other significant numbers like their birthdays and their first date. Each table also had a list of conversation questions for guests to ask each other during dinner. I LOVE these types of questions and thought that it was such a good idea to do! I know I’ve been at weddings where guests awkwardly sit at tables and don’t know what to talk about, so I thought this was such a creative and fun little help for guests to enjoy each other more. The wedding was at the Cotton Warehouse in Monroe, and this venue has so much charm. It is located in a long series of warehouses that are now mostly vintage stores selling all sort of treasures, so we made sure to get some quick pictures in one of the stores with some of their old cameras and lovely decor.
