Modern-Ohio-Wedding-at-Strongwater (31 of 46)

Your wedding venue hugely influences the theme of your big day. For fun couple Jenn and Adam, a modern setting dressed in simple and minimal natural details perfectly expressed their edgy style. Strongwater in Columbus, Ohio, with eroded brick walls and metal ceilings, stood as the gathering place for the couple to say “I do.” The bridesmaids wore structured dresses in shades of gray and metallic silver to further emphasize the alternative style. We love how the bride added a soft touch to her fashion by including a ivory and green floral headpiece. Adam Lowe Photography captured unbelievably cute moments of the couple enjoying their special day!

The Couple:

Jenn and Adam

The Wedding:

Strongwater, Columbus, Ohio

The Inspiration:

When planning the wedding we wanted it to be casual, unique, and have plenty of dancing. We both share similar taste in style, but Adam is in a creative field so he had a stronger opinion. We like modern, industrial, rustic, and eclectic with touches of elegance. Strongwater provided most of that, we just needed to add elegant touches. The layout was perfect for an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. 

As far as attire goes, the goal here was to put ourselves in something that we would feel comfortable in and compliment our everyday style – casual with some personality. Jenn wanted to dress down a fancy wedding dress. She chose an Allure lace gown, gold spiked bracelets, and topped it off with a flower crown – it was a perfect balance of relaxed but “look, she’s getting married” vibe that fit her perfectly. Jenn just wanted her bridesmaids to look like themselves, so they chose their dresses and accessories. Their dresses were shades of gray with varying fabrics for a cohesive yet unique feel. Adam wore a navy linen well-tailored suit with brown wingtips complemented by a light grey pocket square and a floral Liberty of London pattern bow-tie for a little personality. The groomsmen wore the opposite scheme, with grey suits, a navy bow-tie and matching floral pocket square.

The Moments:

The whole day was our favorite moment. Having everyone together in one room is easily the coolest feeling ever. If we had to pick moments these would be our top 3:
1. We wanted our dog involved in the wedding but knew he might steal the show, so we decided to have someone let him loose after the kiss so we could exit as a family. Being the casual couple we are, we did just that. We were curious to see his reaction when he walked out into a crowd of 200 people and if he could find us. He did a good job and it was super entertaining.
2. The wedding ceremony was better than I would’ve ever imagined. Standing in front of a crowd is a scary thought. Standing in front of a crowd watching your every move is terrifying. You plan everything for the reception, the tables, the flowers, the music, but at the ceremony, you don’t know what your officiant is actually going to say. Not loving anything emotional we asked to keep everything light. What he produced was an amazing mix of funny, serious and candid that I wanted to stand up there and listen to him forever.
3. The dance floor. Between the traditional dances, our first dance and our friends – it got wild. This was certainly due to the Conspiracy Band bringing down the house.

The Couple Recommends:

We loved every single person we worked with! Each and every one of them went above and beyond what we had expected and made the entire wedding planning process a breeze! We never felt stressed or worried about anything since we had a rockstar group helping us out. We HIGHLY recommend each and every one of these super talented people!

Dreamy Arizona Wedding at The Windmill Winery

Dreamy-Arizona-Wedding-at-The-Windmill-Winery (29 of 29)

While touring their venue, The Windmill Winery in Florence, Arizona, Alicia and Andrew imagined a classic, elegant, and dreamy wedding that would flow effortlessly at the winery. Soft pastel bridesmaids gowns, rustic touches, and an outdoor ceremony, all came together to produce the magical day. Their wedding was the perfect blend of softness and brightness, which created a dreamy atmosphere for the two to tie the knot. Talented photographer Rachel Solomon captured the couple’s sweet day perfectly.

The Couple:

Alicia and Andrew

The Wedding:

The Windmill Winery, Florence, Arizona

The Inspiration:

Honestly…the entire planning process was not that stressful until the week before the wedding. Our favorite part was touring the venue we chose, collaborating and visualizing the scenery of what we wanted our wedding to look like. The last week was crunch time. Planning the small details is the stressful part. Three days before the wedding we didn’t know how to display our table assignments. Because of some last minute shuffling and glueing we left out Andrew’s sister and father! Luckily they were able to laugh it off at the end and find an empty seat with family.

Outdoor Brooklyn Wedding at The Pines

Outdoor-Brooklyn-Wedding-at-The-Pines (30 of 40)

Because Nina and Gerrett’s first meeting was in classic New York style (her apartment was one block from the bar where he worked), there could be no other way to truly celebrate their love than with an urban city wedding. With tall buildings, brick walls, and colorful murals, their wedding at The Pines in Brooklyn, New York was nothing short of spectacular. Adding in an interesting contrast, the couple dressed the venue in lush green plants and rustic decor. The awesome photographers at Our Love Is Loud perfectly captured the romantic moments at this urban city wedding!

The Couple:

Nina and Gerrett

The Wedding:

The Pines, Brooklyn, New York

The Inspiration:

From the very beginning, we knew that we wanted to have have a super fun party with all the people we love. As an event producer, I’ve seen everything under the sun in eventing, and so I wanted to keep it small with thoughtful touches. We decided to forego much tradition for the sake of keeping it free form, and being open to where the night took us. Our decor was based largely on my personal taste for warm, rustic environments – gorgeous flowers and billions of candles were always my baseline. For my wedding day fashion, I didn’t want to look too bridey. It’s just not who I am. So I kept with the vintage feel of the dress that I LOVED, but wanted to keep it a little quirky. Hence the modern shoes mixed with eclectic jewelry.

The Moments:

Oh man, so hard to choose! We didn’t want to do the traditional “first dance” where everyone gathers around you and stares, so we asked our DJ to play our song (“The Luckiest” by Ben Folds – a little dark, and a little offbeat, just like us!), at some point during the first hour of our reception. We didn’t want to know when it was coming, and we’d dance to it wherever we happened to be. Of course it turned into everyone staring at us, but it was just so lovely and sweet. I don’t remember our ceremony hardly at all, but I loved everything we wrote for that too. The whole day was really the best ever. Even the morning rain showers!

The Couple Recommends:

Seriously, Our Love Is Loud and Alyssa Hoppe were a dream team. Being able to collaborate with such talent was my privilege and honor. I felt heard and understood as a bride, but also as a professional event producer. I can’t recommend them both more highly!
