I am SO glad I am not alone in my love for stripes. If you put stripes on a skirt, purse, wall, or really any inanimate object I am automatically smitten. This lovely bride, with fabulous taste I might add, has the same affinity for all things striped and decided to make it a central design theme for their wedding – and for that alone, I love her. This creative duo joined forces and DIY-ed the heck out of this affair, and you can see all of the fabulousness captured by 1. Art Beauty Life : Jenny Ebert Photography in the full gallery of images.
From 1. Art Beauty Life : Jenny Ebert Photography… Chris Lane, a 30-year-old Production Coordinator in New York City’s film industry, and Lindsay Chandler-Alexander, a 28-year-old architecture student at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, first met in 1999 at summer camp. Ten years later, while back at camp for a weekend away, Chris proposed on the bridge where they first kissed. After an enthusiastic acceptance, the couple dove into planning a wedding weekend in the Catskill Mountains, five minutes down the road from the camp where they fell in love.
Lindsay and Chris, both coming from creative fields, jumped at the opportunity to make the wedding a personal project, designing everything themselves down to the last detail. Lindsay, having an affinity for stripes, immediately had the idea to make black + white stripes the wedding theme. The green accent color, inspired by the couples love for the outdoors and the natural setting of the reception, offset the graphic stripes. The palate filtered through every element of the wedding from the handmade wood invitations, down to the hand-tied napkin rings.
