Our Wedding Day Aesthetic

Philip & I both had a very clear view on what we wanted our wedding day to look like. Industrial, Urban, Whimsical, Fun, and something that spoke to our taste. We were both adamant about having a unique space to share our reception in that didn’t feel like a standard ballroom (absolutely nothing wrong with ballrooms, just not our style!). I put together a lot of mood boards + saved a TON of pictures that inspired me (via Pinterest of course). I have linked my Wedding Planning board below!

I knew that the aesthetic of our day was something important to me, that our photographer captured PERFECTLY (her info is linked to the bottom of this post). A few things that I did to create our aesthetic

  • Finding a space that fit our vibe (thank you VUE Columbus!). This calls for less $ spent towards decor when you already have a killer space.

  • Free flowing, garden style floral arrangements and bouquets

  • Greenery, EVERYWHERE (don’t let them fool you, it’s not any less expensive than flowers)

  • Consistent neutral typography

  • Unconventional food- hello tacos, chicken tenders and sliders!
  • Mismatched bridesmaid dresses in shades of blush & taupe with a palette to help guide

  • Photo locations that fit our look + a photographers style that did as well

I will be doing a separate post linking individual items that I ordered for our big day!

Rehearsal Dinner

Dress: BHLDN

I can’t believe it’s already December & I am just now getting around to posting around the details of our big day. Goes to show that your schedule doesn’t always die down post wedding planning!

One of my favorite memories of our wedding week is our rehearsal dinner. I felt like it was the one time we were able to get a lot of one on one interaction with the people closest to us the week of the wedding. Our families were amazing in helping set the entire thing up so we didn’t have to worry about anything.

I’ve had a ton of questions around my dress from our rehearsal, and honestly I’ve been eyeing this dress for just this occasion since we got engaged. I’ve always loved BHLDN (Anthropologie’s bridal sub brand) and their delicate & easy to wear pieces, and Needle & Thread (the designer of the dress) for their embroidery/bead work. This is their Bobbi dress in a size 0, the fit was oversized (which I typically prefer in the majority of what I wear #comfyAF) but photographed like a dream.

Cheers!

Autumn Traditions

Gingham Flannel: J. Crew (dupe: J. Crew Factory)

Overalls: Abercrombie & Fitch

Utility Jacket: Penfield x Madewell

Jeans: Hollister Co.

Stripe Flannel: Madewell (dupe: Madewell)

Booties: Madewell

Tote: Madewell

Autumn is my absolute favorite season ever since I can remember. Growing up in Michigan the fall season was a magical time, everything was changing color, the air was cooler, and my family would soon be visiting for the Holidays. I get such a sense of nostalgia during this time of year.

Philip & I have gone to Lynd’s fruit farm in Columbus every year since we began dating, and I’m glad we are holding the tradition now that we’re MARRIED (but more to come on that later). Apple + pumpkin picking are the best, and I like to get the full experience, which obviously means dressing the part. Flannels are my fall go to (flannels…for fall? Groundbreaking), but J. Crew/Madewells flannels are life changing and the COZIEST. I’m pretty much still a child, so I love a good pair of overalls, and A&F always performs with their denim selection. I was SHOCKED that I was buying pieces from Hollister again bc tbh I hadn’t since like 2011, but I’m living for these paper bag jeans (+ they’re on sale for a steal!). My Madewell transport tote goes everywhere with me, but my monogram stamp feels a little outdated now that I have new initials! Maybe that’ll be my testimony as to why I need a new one….

Here’s to the best season around!

Cheers!

Bachelorette Sleepover

Pajama Set: TopShop

Eye Mask: Amazon

Slippers: Amazon

My bachelorette party was a massive success thanks to my wonderful maid of honor, and all of my amazing friends! We went with a slumber party theme and booked a hotel suite bc staying in is life. I was in love the Topshop satin set I ordered, and I’m so bummed I didn’t get a picture of my slippers bc I’m OBSESSED (+ inexpensive).

I decided to keep things more low key v. going out and getting wasted bc let’s be honest, I’m a Grandma. The Leveque Hotel in downtown Columbus did not disappoint with our suite! The entire hotel itself is gorgeous, but I was so impressed with our room! We’re almost a month out and it is getting REAL.

Cheers!

Bridal Shower Details

Dress: Lord & Taylor (Wayf)

We celebrated my final bridal shower this weekend and it could not have been more perfect. The setting & decor were stunning, my Mom and three sister in laws did an absolutely amazing job! Asterisk in Uptown Westerville had such a great table set up, and a perfect atmosphere. I was also extremely pleased with my shower dress that I ordered online (that’s now on sale!) it fit like a glove & was perfect for the August heat.

Cheers!

Mackinac, I Love You

Top: Madewell (dupe: Madewell),

Overalls: Abercrombie & Fitch,

Sandals: Birkenstock

A trip to Mackinac Island used to be an every summer occurrence when I still lived in Michigan. The trip over the Mackinac bridge into the Upper Peninsula & the ferry ride in felt like something out of a movie. I absolutely loved being able to have Philip experience this magical place.

Our two hour bike ride did not disappoint, as we had perfect weather! 8 miles around the perimeter of the island, with a view you seriously cannot beat. Honestly I haven’t been on a bike in probably ten years and it was amazing. The turquoise water so clear you can see your feet, & the breeze coming off the lake make it the perfect summer destination.

Cheers!
