Not to mention the bride is a talented calligrapher who did all of her own signage for this romantic wedding
To say this couple radiated happiness is an understatement. Their romantic wedding at The Grand Ivory was overflowing with love and warmth, which is evident in every aspect of the day, but especially their sunset photos. The wind only made the day feel that much more ethereal as the bride’s dress and bouquet ribbons fluttered in the wind. We can’t get over the amazing moongate, beautiful signage (written by the bride, herself) and delightful golden accents.
Even more admirable, the couple planned the whole wedding in just a few of months! They gathered the talents of their family and friends who just so happened to be in the wedding industry around the country. The photographer, Kartsie Photography was a friend of the bride’s from school and currently lives in Florida One of the bridesmaids played quintuple duty as bridesmaid, sister of the groom, florist (Emily Kay Designs), mom, and rehearsal photographer. It was impressive to witness, and it all came together seamlessly.
The most magical part of the day was how happy these two were to get married. After they were pronounced husband and wife they floated back down the aisle with the most incredible smiles. After they got out of the chapel they turned to each other and started crying happy tears. It was palpable how thrilled they were to finally be married, and it was a privilege to witness. It was definitely the highlight of this romantic wedding.
Did I mention the beautiful signage written by the bride? Lauren was able to apply her calligraphy talent (Velvet Paperie) to her wedding signage.
The centerpieces encompassed a lot of greenery with ivory flowers and hints of warm orange and pale pink. The family style tables had simple greenery down the middle. The reception featured delicious food from the two food trucks on site, a sweet treat from Steel City Pops, some fantastic dance moves, and a romantic sparkler exit!
I will leave you with some shots of the incredibly photogenic and effusively happy couple.
