Real Mad Men Wedding Designed By David Tutera

Jason and Taylor love the impeccable ’60s-inspired style of the hit show Mad Men. They also wanted their wedding to  feel like a place they take clients for drinks and dinner. Seems simple enough … right? Apparently not,  Taylor had a hard time finding anything that looked like, “Mad Men” theme without looking cheap or cheesy. The only thing that seemed to be spot on with her initial planning process was our Mad Men Save The Date.

Lucky for Jason and Taylor, David Tutera from My Fair Wedding  came into the picture and took over. Arranging every detail for their Mad Men inspired wedding. The entire celebration went off without a hitch and was more then they could ever imagine. Read on to hear more from the bride and be sure to see more retro inspired wedding ideas from this real Mad Men wedding by clicking here. All captured by Matt & Molly Snelson of Mathieu Photography.

Filming with the crew was awesome. It sounds so cliche but by the end I didn’t notice the cameras. I felt like these were my friends from way back in the day and we were just catching up. Both Jason and I really gave David full rein of our wedding. We had no strings attached. We knew it was going to be fantastic. I don’t think we knew how amazing. I would have never dreamed that I would be doing a photo shoot on the set of “Mad Men” or to get married there. I mean I joked around with my family when they said, “What do you think David will do?” My response was, “Put us on the set to say I do.” I said it thinking no way on God’s green Earth was that a possibility.

Everything on my wedding day went off without a hitch, or if a hitch happened I didn’t know about it because the crew handled it. I got to be like so many Grooms. I showed up and got dressed and then married. I didn’t stress about the caterer, florist, or rentals. I sat up in the suite with my girls and Mom. That is the way everyone should get married.

Jason and I chose the theme of “Mad Men” because when we first got engaged I asked Jason what he wanted for the wedding. His reply was, “To get married in the Galapagos Islands, to not wear a tux, to have a “Seinfeld” themed wedding cake, a whiskey and cigar bar. I vowed to have him not wear a tux, to have a whiskey and cigar bar. I looked into the rest but they were kinda out there requests. From what I could do I thought I could make the whiskey and cigar bar have a lounge feel like in “Mad Men.” I wanted it to feel like the place they take clients for drink and dinner. Jason and I are big into retro fashion, especially the sixties, so the concept just kinda snowballed from there.

When I saw Jason at the end of the aisle, tears were instantly in my eyes. Jason and I have been together for 8 years. It was long over due, because I have known that he was “The One” since our first date. David and his team made Jason far more handsome than Donald Draper ever could be, which I know was an easy job. My officiant was my Uncle Timmers, it was his first wedding and truly I think he knocked it out of the park. Every tear shed was of pure happiness and love

My photographers were the only thing that I was allowed to keep when David changed everything, although if he had tried to change them I would have fought to the death to keep them. I know that they have been to some crazy weddings, but between the filming schedule and my family they were able to get the most amazing shots of Jason and I that I will cherish for a lifetime and more. Not only were Molly and Matt able to take charge and get the shots they needed to they are such professionals and amazing people that they brought out the true Jason and Taylor moments. Jason and I are not the most photogenic people, I know everyone says that, but truly, and Molly and Matt captured that day in the photos. I loved the way they both took pictures that had the booms and cameras in the shots it capture the true essence of that day.

All in all it was a beautiful wedding. Jason and I are truly blessed. We couldn’t have “Dreamed Bigger” as David says. Thank you to everyone who helped,. some of you I will never know but I want to personally say thank you for making my wedding everything I wanted and more.

    What is the simplest way to find blogs you’re enthusiastic about?

    In other words, how do you search for blogs that suit what I want to learn about?
    Does anybody know how to search by topic through blogs or whatever on blogger?.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!

  46. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just
    sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.

    Do you have any tips for novice blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    In today’s knowledge centric business environment, human resources remain the
    key drivers of competitive advantages for firms. This is
    a simple do-it-yourself modification to the tractor
    bucket. For the most part, mobile messaging can be accomplished
    at almost every level and no longer is just for the larger, more powerful companies.

    A VPS performs and executes specifically like a stand-alone server; Your VPS may be rebooted independently and have root access,
    users, IP addresses, memory space, processes, recordsdata, applications, method libraries and configuration recordsdata.
    Unquestionably you can still reveal the exact same added benefits as aforementioned plans.

    Comparing web hosting small business plans can be time consuming, however, a crucial step in your future success
    with your business online.

    to save even more off their already low prices. If you
    purchase or renew your Beauty Club card in-store, you can request a senior or military discount.

    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your theme.

    Action Movies are admired by younger generation where they
    are dazzled to watch wonderful fights and awesome
    actions. Great time travel scenes have shown up in movies that weren’t explicitly about time
    travel. While this method is great for movie site it is not the best form download sites because if the
    visitors have time to click on the page he might escape the gateway.

  55. Your style is very unique in comparison to other people I
    have read stuff from. Thank you for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I will just bookmark this web site.
