Pink and Gold Wedding Celebrating Life

bridal portraits with a view

Elizabeth and Ross decided they wanted their big day to be a celebration of life. Ross’ mom unfortunately passed away exactly two months before the wedding and they knew that their wedding could be nothing short of a celebration for her.

Appropriately, they had a bright themed wedding with some glitz. Pinks, corals and peach with splashes of gold made things perfectly lively and lovely. The day was full of fun elements that kept everyone smiling, from the photo booth guestbook to the champagne flute escort ‘cards’. Be inspired by more elements of this day found in the full gallery here, captured by Dabble Me This.

Their wedding strategy

Ross and I were engaged in May 2013 and were so excited to plan our wedding. We ended up planning a July 2014 Chicago wedding. My bridesmaids picked out their own dresses and they turned out even more gorgeous together than I could have ever imagined. Ross and I picked out navy suits for the groomsmen that went perfect with the dresses and Ross chose a custom suit that I must say, made him look quite dapper! My sister, Laura, helped so much with all the DIY signs and champagne table seating chart that turned out amazing! With the help of a friend, Kim Clay (Clink: A Paper Company) we had some amazing personalized programs, table numbers & thank you cards!

Michael Walters Orchestra helped us all party the night away and we could not suggest a more amazing Chicago band! And our photographer, Dabble Me This, was and is truly amazing. Our day and night was absolutely amazing. At one point a friend of mine told me to, “look around and take this all in…this is all for you!” That’s one thing that I feel like could have been so easily forgotten. We are truly blessed and are so truly thankful.

Monogrammed Garden Wedding

Talk about a classic rivalry, this monogrammed garden wedding united two countries as well as two people! Kelley and Murry’s big day at Penrose Farm in Tennessee was a seamless union of American and English tradition that is sure to make you swoon. Beautifully captured by Leah Barry Photography, you can see every last detail in our full gallery here.

Bouquet Recipe

Kelley’s flowers included Queen Anne’s lace, stock, golden rod, and even fresh picked rosemary from her garden, giving each bouquet a sense of the wild. Kelley’s bouquet was even adorned by an heirloom from her grandmother, a rhinestone vintage brooch. Fitting, as it was, that her grandmother’s nickname was ‘the Queen,’ giving another nod to her English counterpart.

Love from across the pond

Kelley and Murray first met across the pond while Kelley was studying abroad in England. Charmed by his sharp wit, sweet demeanor, and that awfully alluring accent, their friendship soon turned to romance.

Penrose Farm, their wedding venue, mirrored an English Garden with such finely manicured landscaping set a top the rolling hills of East Tennessee. With such details as the groom’s cravat, ladies in big hats and fascinators, union jack socks, hand made bunting, and delectable Victorian sponge cake, English flair was not to be missed.

In fact, were it not for the bluegrass string band, whiskey barrels, mason jars and slow cooked BBQ, guests could have easily mistaken their whereabouts and departed driving on the left side of the road.

Even the most fervent wedding cake skeptics couldn’t resist the tantalizing options available. From Italian cream, to carrot, to Victorian sponge, to rich chocolate, the cakes were homemade and undeniable. And if that wasn’t enough, the wedding favors were personal, single-serving apple and cherry pies baked earlier that week by both families.
