“All’s well that ends well to end up with you.” With Taylor Swift songs as the soundtrack, Sarah and Charlie’s fun-loving and wedding was feminine with a modern kick. Sarah drafted such inspiration for their bubbly and bright wedding from pastel pink wildflowers and an edgy modernity.
When deciding on a venue, Brick and Ivey’s light and bright take on a modern industrial warehouse sealed the deal. The whitewashed brick walls and natural wooden chandeliers were a beautiful, neutral canvas to execute their vision against.
The bride’s Willowby by Watters strapless gown from The White Magnolia was embellished with glittering sequins and pearls. But smiley-face ankle socks, Veja sneakers and retro sunglasses made the otherwise traditional look feel true to her. Photos of the couple toasting champagne bottles while showing off their sneakers ended up being some of their favorites from the whole day. Having their fun-loving personalities shine through in classic, romantic poses like this was important to Sarah and Charlie.
Reception seating for the couple’s 135 guests was depicted on a custom, pet- themed seating chart titled “Sit. Stay.” The bride runs a pet portrait business, Sarah Paints Pets, and she wanted to incorporate her art into the celebrations. In an incredibly thoughtful act, each table had a portrait of one of the guest’s pets on it. Needless to say, this was a hit!
The DJ played “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” to close out the evening. In the recording, Swift sang, “It’s a love story, baby, just say, ‘Yes,’” and, of course, Sarah and Charlie obliged.
