When you marry a fashion blogger, you’re in for a super stunning day (and you’re most definitely one lucky groom). Love Life Images captured a wedding fit for the most beautiful of fashion bloggers, planned and perfected by Kelley Cannon Events and I’m feeling inspired. Everything from the seafoam bridesmaids to the sweet flowers the best kind of pretty, and lucky for you, it’s all right here.
From the bride… When Mark and I started planning our wedding, it became very clear to us that we both had the same priority in mind: throw an epic party. Mark quickly took over crafting a song list that was worthy of dancing and cartwheels (yes, my husband does cartwheels at every wedding we go to!), while I focused my efforts on all the pretty, romantic details of the wedding. To say I got into the details is an understatement! As a fashion blogger, I’m already a bit in love with reading blogs and browsing Pinterest, so it was an easy transition to focus my efforts on wedding planning.
My vision for the wedding? Romantic, whimsical, colorful, and local. After looking at one venue (yes, only one!), we knew we had hit the jackpot. The Hotel Monaco in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia is only a mile from our house. Alexandria is where we feel the most comfortable, the most at-home, so there was something really special about sealing our love here. Many of our vendors work with the Hotel Monaco on a regular basis, so our entire day was a well-oiled machine — despite a huge art festival happening the same weekend that closed down all the streets surrounding the hotel! Fortunately, this busy event only added to Old Town’s charm and made for some fun photos.
Besides finally getting to see Mark at the end of the aisle (a feeling I’ll never ever forget — I’m getting goosebumps just writing this), my favorite part of the big day was seeing all the colorful little details come together. After months of scouring the depths of Etsy and hunting for vintage bottles, it all came together even better than we imagined. I cannot thank Love Life Images, The Enchanted Florist, my Etsy vendors, our crafty moms, and coordinator Kristen Puzzo with Kelley Cannon Events enough for bringing my colorful turquoise and coral vision to life.
Every bride tells you that your wedding day will absolutely fly by. What I’ll remember most is seeing our wonderful family and friends dancing their shoes off, laughing, hugging, and jumping up and down with us from the first song to the last. My feet may never be the same from all that dancing and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I look forward to a happy and joyful marriage — and always having a dance partner by my side.
