Real wedding: Hayley + Jeff

hayley2

We really wanted a wedding that would feel vintage and romantic but with little pops of quirkiness. Jeff and I now live in Philadelphia, but since I’m from Florida, and we met there our freshmen year of college, we thought it would be an appropriate place to tie the knot. South Florida, even in January, can be pretty warm so the weather really threw us for a loop when it was suddenly 40 degrees and rainy. Everyone made-do though, and I was able to borrow my maid of honor’s grandmother’s vintage fur to keep the chill off.

My Grandfather married us at the Royal Poinciana Chapel, which is a very charming little church in Palm Beach. The church has a very quaint, almost cottage-like feel to it. The reception was held at the Flagler Museum, a perfectly preserved mansion built in 1902 by Henry Flagler. Guests had free reign of the museum during the cocktail hour, where we served a couple of our favorite cocktails and listened to a gypsy jazz duo. Flagler is known for building the railroad from the northeast, all the way down to the Florida Keys. His personal train car is held in the room where we had the reception making it feel as though you were actually in a beautiful old train station.

My dress was by Vera Wang and the bridesmaids wore Simple Silhouettes. In my hair I wore pieces by Twigs and Honey and Maria Elena. I designed the wedding stationary and had it printed by Studio on Fire. We really love good food, and our caterer, Chez Gourmet, did a great job of giving us all our favorites, from fried risotto balls and crab cakes to a gelato bar. One of my fabulously talented bridesmaids Lauren Alane, did us the honor of making our adorable cake topper. The amazing Annabel from Belathée was our photographer. I’ve admired Belathée’s work for a long time, so it was a dream to have Annabel capture the day.

post No. 2 Artsy Indie

• In this lineup, bright punchy colors, retro nostalgia, and a little bit of edge •

If you are a creative type, then have a blast with your wedding and go alternative with all the special details! You can make your wedding reflect who you are by thinking outside the box with all of the little elements that shout personality. Why not make some of your own decorations? (but be sure to enlist friends for help!) I love the paint brush idea for the escort cards. It’s so original and the social aspect of guests sorting through the pile is a great mingling opportunity. Escort cards don’t have to be tented pieces of paper. On that same note, table numbers don’t have to be numbers, they can be colors, cities, band names, islands, whatever you want them to be. Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to create an expression of who you are as a couple.
