Here is Part 2 from Autumn and Mike's NOLA wedding at Race & Religious! Autumn has always been one of our favorite vendors to work with (she is a killer wedding photographer herself at Hello Miss Lovely!), and we were so honored to be a part of her special day.
Thank you to Lauren Scotti Photography for photographing our collection so beautifully. Love, love, love x 100!!!
Autumn, our bride: My favorite was seeing our daughter, Luna, walk Michael down the aisle to “Hurt” by 2cellos, followed by the bridal party. My father then walked me down to “Angels” by The XXand it was surreal. Seeing all our friends and family for the first time was super emotional.
Autumn, the bride: Our ceremony was BEAUTIFUL! Our backdrop was a handmade macramé with florals at the top. We had a lounge area at the back of the aisle and a gorgeous rug as our “stage”.
From our groom Michael: Standing up there with my lady and promising each other our love for eternity.”
Autumn: We are not your traditional couple and we really wanted to make our day US…so we did! I would say our “vibe” was a mixture of bohemian, modern, with an edge of FUN! I wanted the boho elements which I brought in using rugs, morocco pillows, macrame backdrop, cactus, and plant terrariums. I feel we brought the “modern” vibe with our wedding attire. Then we added pops of FUN like our iridescent bags, my gold glitter boots, feathers, and of course my pink hair! Then we tied everything together by our color palette by using florals, pops of maroon EVERYWHERE, golds, blush, etc. AHHH can we go back already?!
Advice for future brides: Our advice, I would say start with the big items on your list…choose your venue and have an idea of your style and colors and try to envision it set up as your looking for your venue! After, book your vendors that are most important to you! Photography, videography, florals, etc. Its a special day and you want to be able to work with those you trust. Keep crossing off as you book, the items you buy, and the DIY projects you want to create, etc..it feels incredible once its checked off! Also, wine helps : )
