From her bridesmaid’s colorful, mix-matched dresses to the organic and textured reception decor — everything felt straight out of a Free People catalog. If sentimental moments make you weak, just wait until you see the photos Michelle Lyerly Photography captured of the couple’s foot washing ceremony that symbolized their devotion to serve one another. Get your Pinterest boards ready, babes, because you’re sure to fall in love with Lacey and Jordan’s day!

The Couple:

Lacey & Jordan

The Wedding:

Eldermann’s Overlook Barn, Banner Elk, North Carolina

Wedding planning advice from the bride: Simply don’t stress about the little details. Plan more for marriage itself rather than one day!



My two close friends sang the song that I walked down the aisle to and it was everything I could have ever dreamed of. My husband and I also washed each others feet and had a time of worship. That was truly special.

My photographer was a DREAM. She was the perfect combination of sassy, hardworking, professional, fun, and hilarious. She ran a tight ship, and that’s exactly what I needed. I loved her so much, and she captured the most beautiful moments.

When I tried on my dress at Grace Loves Lace, there was pampas grass and dried flowers everywhere. It was so elegant, whimsical, and simple. I loved it! I wanted to bring that same vibe on my special day.

These Jazz Musicians Struck a Chord in Us with Their Emotional Italian Elopement

January 21, 2020 | brooke

Well, we’re crying. And smiling giddy smiles. And feeling all the feels. Alexandra and Leif’s emotional Italian elopement is everything our music and mountain-loving hearts needed. The couple decided to elope in their favorite places in the world: Florence for their getting ready location and the Dolomites for a sentimental ceremony. Photographers The Ferros adventured with the couple all day, artistically capturing every tear and sweet moment of laughter. If you’re into vintage fashion and unexpected surprises, you will surely be inspired by every little thing about Alexandra and Leif’s special day.

The Couple:

Alexandra & Leif

The Wedding:

Florence and Dolomites, Italy

We had a small getting ready session in Florence, one of our favorite city in the world (where we also had a private jam session the night before).

We are both musicians and travel quite often around the world, even separately. So we really wanted to find some quality time for the two of us only and spend a couple of days just being together. We actually perfectly knew how we wanted our wedding to be: intimate, adventurous and fun. And surely with our favorite music as our background. So planning wise that wasn’t a lot we did, except for choosing our photographers, the perfect location and the most dreamy dresses! (We both love fashion, me, Alexandra especially that is why I picked 2 dresses instead of 1!)

Being both quite sensitive towards art the research of the right photographers meant a lot to us. We felt we needed someone who was able to express our feelings (with his own vision) differently from most of the “wedding photographers” we found on internet. It took a while to find the perfect fit, til we find the perfect fit in The Ferros. Two incredible human beings and amazing artists who made such an artwork! So for us the research of the photographer has been quite crucial. Nico and Vinx are now our best friends. Really. They made our days a dream, they have been able to get so close to us as persons and as artists that we still cannot believe our eyes when we see those pictures. What they have created is something we will treasure for ever, it has been a magical chemistry among the four of us. I still don’t know how to describe it but it has been one of the best experiences of our life.

We decided to read our vows to each other, so we did. I actually wrote them on a piece of paper a couple of days before. The most intense moment (and most unpredictable too) one was when Leif pulled out his music cassette and let me hear a song he wrote for me as his vows! I literally couldn’t handle my tears…

The Wedding Team:

Photography – The Ferros
Ceremony Venue – Tre Cime di Lavaredo
Reception Venue – Blue Note (Italy)
Wedding Dress – Anna Fucà Atelier
