I’ve fallen for this beautiful luxury wedding. Dreamy soft shades of pink and florals galore, Megan and Chad’s love story culminated in the most perfect day.
From their first date Megan knew Chad was something special, and three years and a truly romantic Laguna Beach proposal later, they were married in Megan’s home city of Chicago.
The bride chose the softest Vera Wang A-line wedding gown with lace overlay and sweet tulle straps. A simple twisted up-do and a long veil finished the look, along with a beautiful Cartier bangle from her husband-to-be. Pretty papercut stationery adorned with crystals gave a little hint of the sparkling day ahead, matching the lacework and crystals on Megan’s dress. Papercut stationery is so pretty and a perfect way to add detail and interest to your invites as well as introducing a subtle colour theme if you wish.
Pink was the colour of the day, and Megan’s bridesmaids shone in bright fuschia skirts, with a paler top – such a good idea for breaking up a bright colour – the ‘maids really stood out with their sparkling waistbands offering some wedding glamour. The groom brushed up well in a slick tux and Louis Vuitton shoes, with groomsmen matching in black.
The couple went all-out with flowers, making them the theme of their wedding. Flowers were pretty in pink and white, and the couple chose a huge, gorgeous floral wall to provide a backdrop for their wedding day. I love a dramatic floral display, and a floral wall gives a really beautiful, fragrant centrepiece that personalises the celebration as well as giving a great background for your photos! Megan and Chad included another, smaller floral wall, a floral picture frame for candid snaps, big and small table centrepieces and of course, the fresh and fluffy bouquets themselves; Megan’s a slightly larger version of her bridesmaids’. Roses, orchids and hydrangea came together to create beautiful displays, as well as adorning the wedding cake which was filled with colourful rainbow funfetti!
