Today’s elegant DIY wedding sets a new standard for handmade weddings! Alright, when the bride’s aunt customizes a stunning BHLDN gown and a word class floral designer hand makes each arrangement, the bar is set pretty high, but Lauren and Mark’s gorgeous autumn wedding celebrates the amazing community that surrounds them – in the most stylish way possible! Mintwood Photo Co.‘s incredible photography makes each image look straight out of a fairy tale.
Just a glance at their enormous wedding party illustrates how much these two are loved. They exchanged vows surrounded by friends, in one of the most stylish bridal parties that I have ever seen. Lauren’s bridesmaids each selected their own blush dress, creating a gorgeous bevy of gowns to pair with equally unique bouquets with blush roses and hints of deep burgundy. The bride carried a gorgeous take on a cascade bouquet, with soft ivory blooms and trailing jasmine vines. Lauren paired her customized Annabelle Dress with glam deco inspired accessories, complementing the simple tulle gown with a crystal sash and incredible statement earrings.
The golden light of a Midwestern autumn gave them a dreamy gilded backdrop to their wedding portraits at Glendale Lyceum. The Ballroom of the historic private club was the perfect setting for their garden inspired reception, with lush, loose floral arrangements and a cake by Canteen Organic Bakery draped in jasmine vines. The gold chandeliers and adorable handmade Sparkler Sendoff signs added a chic hint of gold to their gorgeous reception!
