Madi and Jeremy absolutely mastered the art of balancing quirky, colorful vibes and elegance with delightful results!
A bright and vivid, citrus inspired color palette was used throughout the event in details such as the bouquets and boutonnieres and reception decor was complimented by chic white bridesmaid dresses and classic black tuxes. The ceremony was held in a stunning church with a round sanctuary and high, vaulted ceilings. The unique architecture complimented to tropical inspired florals designs and the mid-century modern details of their aesthetic. They finished their ceremony within ribbon wand exit as guests gathered in a colorful line of well wishes. Their modern wedding reception was perfectly coordinated and included delightful details such as greeters on stilts and boldly decorated dining tables and a gorgeous all-white wedding cake. The carefully curated design aesthetic and unique experience they gave their guests spoke to the refined taste and fun personalities of the couple.
Madi: When we started the planning process, I knew I wanted something non-traditional in aesthetic, and I was gravitating toward tropical warm palates from orange tulips and blood oranges. I then chose a bridesmaid dress in white brushed silk and clear acrylic heels, as a nod to my grandmother's wedding that also featured bridesmaids in mid calf white dresses with those vintage acrylic shoes with dried flowers set in the heel. The Hailey Paige dress I chose spoke to me because the beading and head to toe sequin differentiated me from what would become an all black and white bridal party.
Our florist, Steven Cox, understood our vision completely in the floral design, opting for a gradient bouquet from deep plum to yellow and tropical compilations for the bridesmaids. He included cut open citrus on tables and in floral arrangements as a nod to our original color inspiration.
We had touches of our travels together as a couple on each table, where guests looked for photos from cities and countries we have visited as opposed to conventional table numbers.
