Inspiration for your road to the altar

Real Wedding – Milwaukee, Wisconsin

September 15, 2009

Erin and Derek’s wedding is beautiful in every way and so infused with style. Their ceremony is most definitely one of the most lovely events I’ve seen – I adore the candlelight and the simple color palette. But since the bride can do a much better job of explaining her vision that I ever can, I will let Erin do the talking:

Our vision for the theme was vintage glamor meets modern design. I really wanted to go from a stark color palette at the ceremony to an explosion of color in the ballroom at the reception. At the ceremony, we went with all white and black from the flowers to the programs. That transitioned to black, white, and pops of red at the cocktail hour, and finally melded into brightly colored flowers in reds and fuchsias to contrast with the citron colored linens.

Erin and Derek’s vendors are listed below, and I will post all the reception pictures in another post very shortly. Don’t miss the picture of Erin’s Dad looking at her before they walk down the aisle – its impossible to see it and not smile!

    Yes, the bridesmaids dresses were from jcrew! Erin reports that they were silk taffeta, and that the girls loved them for being so lightweight(and they had pockets)!
