Don’t forget the clear umbrella for the rain drops!
EMBRACE THE RAIN DROPS!
In films, directors use rain to signify change, cleansing of the characters world as they know it + paving the way for a fresh chapter in their life. So remember to DANCE in the rain!
THE CEREMONY! With a thunderstorm on the horizon the couple decided to move the “I Do’s” inside the hangar, making for a cozy atmosphere to exchange their vows.
“I never once worried about my dress/alterations/veil/accessories. I knew everything was going to be perfect. Not only because of the environment but how easy ALSW was to work with. One vendor that caused me ZERO stress which is always a HUGE win when planning a wedding!”
What would you recommend to a new bride beginning her gown shopping?
“Be open minded, my dress was completely what I said I didn’t want. I have a small chest and there was no way I wanted a strapless w/sweetheart neckline and that’s what Kim picked for me and it was AMAZING and everything I could have dreamed of.”
Can we talk about this darling custom ring box created by the couples friend + officiant created from salvaged wood… How adorable is the little man carrying it?!.
Custom signs by the MOH (I think we all need friends like theirs!) The flower girl looked so precious in her flower crown created by Floral Designs by Melissa, such a perfect mixture of greenery + subtle pop of blush roses.
Q&A! WITH ALSW BRIDE NIKKI
How did you meet your husband?
“We actually went to high school together but weren’t friends! Then in college my best friend, is his best friends little sister. She told me Evan was having a party over summer break and so we went. Evan and I ended up being beer pong partners and won (no joke) 20 games of beer pong in a row. I didn’t really like him at first, I even had a boyfriend at the time. But then we continued talking, I broke up with my boyfriend and we’ve been together ever since!!”
What was going through your mind as you walked down the aisle?
“The whole 20 minutes before the wedding was so crazy because a major thunderstorm just rolled through and we had to move the ceremony from the field to inside the barn where my reception was. There was literally every emotion running through my mind. But it honestly was my favorite part of the entire night.”
THE PARTY! Held in an old wood airplane hangar created a cozy backdrop for the guests to dance the night away. Is anyone else craving cake, or is it just us!
We love a mix of table sizes and shapes makes for a great flow + perfect way to get guests to mix + mingle more easily.
Q&A! WITH ALSW BRIDE NIKKI
If you could go back and relive a moment from your wedding day, what would it be?
“Oh god, everything. Probably taking pictures with just Evan and walking down the aisle/saying our vows to each other.”
