Hi, hello! Welcome to Kevin & Steph’s neon wedding wonderland! So glad you're here because this wedding is so.much.fun! The Wrigley Mansion (Yes, the chewing gum) was the stunning locale for this eclectic and totally unique, Alice in Wonderland inspired wedding.
With the help of Rock & Stone Weddings, these two Disney buffs designed their wedding with a tropical neon vibe, thrifted finds, and tons of DIY elements. Curious for more? Follow the white rabbit below for all the highlights, and catch the entire day in the full gallery photographed by Carley Jayne Photography.
From Rock & Stone Weddings
Kevin & Steph are huge fans of Disney and even got engaged at Disneyland. It was the teacup ride that formed the basis of their wedding inspiration. We fused these elements with their love of Taylor Swift and tropical neon vibes, to come up with a design that was fun, vibrant and a little cheeky, which totally reflected them! Kevin is a sommelier at the stunning Wrigley Mansion, once built by the family of chewing gum fame! An amazing spot with the majestic house and tropical grounds, it was the perfect location.
There were tons of DIY elements, we made the ceremony backdrop using a canvas drop cloth and hand died the napkins in neon shades to compliment the acrylic place cards. The bride also made the acrylic signage around the venue. Thrifted glassware and vases and mismatched lounge furniture all played into the eclectic tea party feel, and for cocktail hour we served the signature cocktails in tea cups. We spray painted pineapples for an inexpensive and striking centerpiece option.
Short and sweet ceremony
The bride and groom both descended 3 flights of stairs to their ceremony, to Taylor Swift's enchanted and there wasn't a dry eye in the house! The short & sweet ceremony was officiated by their good friend Andrew. Buster and Henry, the fur babies, made a quick appearance in their dapper neon suits, actually Dumb & Dumber costumes!
Kevin & Steph rocked a total of 5 outfits between them! For the ceremony Steph wore a Houghton NYC dress and Kev a pale pink suit with tropical shirt. For the reception, Steph changed into a crop top and skirt from Noel & Jean and Kev wore a floral suit, and then lastly, Steph swapped out the skirt for pants from Milly and changed her hair to a slick back look ready to party at the after party!
follow the white rabbit
Rather than have a traditional wedding reception, Kevin & Steph planned a late after party for some of their guests and we hung miniature white rabbit lanterns to light the way and the couple handed out cryptic 'follow the white rabbit' cards to select guests during dinner. The incredible cake from Sift & Gather was champagne and raspberry flavored and showcased all the surrealism that the event called for!
