This wedding is so incredibly GORGEOUS you'd think it was a styled shoot filled with models...
However, there's no mistaking the love emanating from each beautiful image by Alixann Loosle Photography.
Michelle and Ryan are head over heels for each other (and their adorable little girl, Ellie Mae) and boy do they know how to throw a wedding!
I adore Michelle's romantic bridal look ~ elegant lace wedding dress, blush pink floral sash, soft, tumbling waves, sparkly accessories...need I go on? While Ryan and his groomsmen look sharp in a modern yet classic grey suit, braces and black bow tie combo. The bevy of bridesmaids wore perfectly mismatched neutral tones (and an array of stylish shoes to swoon over).
I'm sharing their wedding in two parts as there's far too much pretty to share in one post ~ they had a private religious ceremony in their temple, then beautiful portraits, a ring ceremony and a fun filled reception in a historic hall plus a delightful stop off at a retro diner for shakes and fries in between!
Lovely in Lace
I have always wanted an all-lace dress. I found a local lady who made beautiful lace dresses and she custom made it for me exactly how I wanted it! One of my favorite parts about my accessories was the custom-made headpiece from Doloris Petunia. Courtney was so great to work with and I thought it was the perfect touch for the look that I wanted. For the Groom’s suit, he wanted a medium toned gray suit. Zara had the perfect one for a killer price!
The Bridal Party’s outfits were my favorite. I loved the different colored dresses, but all within the same color scheme. I liked having the bridesmaids choose their own dresses, because they were able to show their personality still while being able to choose their style of dress. They weren’t restricted to all wearing the same dress.
Soft Vintage Photography
I chose Alixann Loosle to do my photography because she has a soft, vintage feel and I thought it went along with our theme. Alix is such a great photographer and I thought she did an AMAZING job with our bridal party pictures, fitting all 22 people in!
In my bouquet, I had Sahara Roses, Spray Roses, Football Mums, Hydrangeas, Stock and Ranunculus.
Such a gorgeous, stylish couple. Can you believe they had 20 friends in their bridal party?!
Michelle shares their newly married adventures on her sweet and stylish blog Ryan, Michelle, Ellie Mae go take a peek, it's lovely!
And be sure to come back tomorrow for Part 2 ~ their vintage chic reception.
