Whimsical Glam Wedding at a New Zealand Antique Shop

August 22, 2017 | colleen

Laura and James embraced the unique vibe of The Vitrine for their whimsical glam wedding. They dressed up their vintage shop venue with plenty of blooms and pops of pink, including Laura’s hair (we are obsessed!). These design-forward lovebirds, who own a dog collar design shop called Dogs of Desire, communicated their vision to Amanda Norwood Design, who went above and beyond their expectations. The day wouldn’t have been complete without Chasewild there photographing all the important details and sweetness between Laura and James!

The Couple:

Laura and James

The Wedding:

The Vitrine, Auckland, New Zealand

My advice would be to hire a wedding stylist/planner and make sure that you communicate a clear vision to them.

We are vegetarian, so had an array of veggie dishes from Monday’s Wholefoods, as well as salmon to keep the meat eaters happy. We went with self serve table platters to keep everything more relaxed.

We just tried to reflect the style that was try to achieve in our own house and lives. White, clean, and fresh with pops of beauty and colour. We adore pink.

We DIY’d the dog’s collars – they were made by our label, Dogs of Desire.

Laura wanted to go for clean whimsical. Pink hair was the basis for the style and everything else followed. James was fresh, well tailored and polished while staying true to his taste. Laura adored her hair and the fit of the dress was stunning. The earrings really finished the outfit off also.

We surprised out guests by announcing our pregnancy on the day of our wedding! And just welcomed our little girl a couple of weeks ago.

This Italian Countryside Elopement in Florence is the Epitome of Intimate

August 21, 2017 | colleen

This intimate elopement in Florence, Italy is what dreams are made of – a romantic city, gelato, and the love of your life. When Stacy and Daniel began planning their wedding day, they put a traditional wedding to the wayside and focused to what’s most important to them. Deciding to elope in Florence, Daniel’s favorite city, they were able to create a special day just for the two of them. They exchanged the vows they had written to each other and explored the city and countryside of Florence with their photographer, Matt Lien, in tow. He was there every step of the way to document their love and the beauty of Florence.

The Couple:

Stacy and Daniel

The Wedding:

The St. Regis, Florence, Italy

After briefly planning a traditional wedding, we decided to plan our wedding based on what was truly most important to us, ignoring the checklists and traditional expectations. We determined that having a special, memorable day together, meaningful photos, a wedding dress, and a celebration with friends were our priorities. To meet those expectations, we decided to elope in Florence, Italy, after seeing examples of beautiful elopements on Junebug! After eloping, we traveled throughout Asia and Europe for a month, which was the best way to start our marriage. Upon returning home, we had a wedding reception with family and friends in Chicago.

Remember to stay true to what is important to you as a couple. Your wedding day is just one day of your life, don’t let wedding planning take over your life. Enjoy being engaged and remember planning for your marriage is more important than planning a wedding. Also, enjoy every moment and choose a photographer you love, because it goes so quickly and you’ll want to remember the day!

We got engaged in Paris (Stacy‘s favorite city we’d visited together) and decided Florence (Daniel‘s favorite city we’d visited together) was the perfect location for our wedding. We didn’t find the location for our vows until the day before. We went on a run through the city looking for a private spot with a view. The day-of our photographer, Matt, helped find the perfect spot in that area.

The most memorable part of the day was having time to relax and enjoy the day together by enjoying the sights, sounds, and tastes around Florence and rural Tuscany. It was particularly special having a beautiful and isolated place in the city to share our vows and take in the moment together without distractions.

We chose not to have an officiant in Florence, so we could truly focus on sharing our personalized vows with each other. This made the moment so memorable and kept the focus on our personal promises to each other.

Stacy loves ice cream, so we made sure to add a gelato stop to our day. Eating gelato in the center of Florence in a tuxedo and wedding dress is a great memory we’ll never forget.

Venue – The St. Regis

Wedding Dress – Pnina Tornai
