The Peabody Essex Museum Wedding by Ashley Garmon Photographers
October 11, 2011
New England

I absolutely adore a bride who isn't afraid to rock a little color on her big day... And I get a little giddy each and every time I see it here on Style Me Pretty.  So, it pretty much goes without saying that this stunning Salem bride just rocketed to the top of my fabulous list for taking the color notion up a notch with a vibrant red (and uber-stunning) Oscar de la Renta gown.  I know... She's my new hero, too.  And if that amazing dress weren't enough to have me completely smitten (it is), there's those seriously gorgeous blooms, the sleek and sophisticated reception space, one cute as can be Koala cake and brilliant images by Ashley Garmon Photographers.  Sounds like a good way to spend a Tuesday, no?  Join me in the gallery for even more!

From Ashley Garmon Photographers... This beautiful wedding was an intimate affair held in Salem, Massachusetts.  The ceremony was held at St. Peters Episcopal Church and the reception was at The Peabody Essex Museum.  The bride is in a indie rock band called Shearwater.  She was able to enlist some very talented musician friends to lend a hand.  Members of Hospital Ships played during ceremony and cocktail hour.  Much to the delight of many independent music fans in attendance, Damien Jurado and Ted Leo each played and sang during the reception.   The bride and groom's nicknames for each other are "Koala and Tree," which were reflected on the bride's custom made wedding hanger and on the wedding cake as well.
