After donning a plaid bowtie and custom shoes etched with mountains, his wedding date, and the line “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, Ian walked to the backyard of his bride’s family home for a First Look at his gorgeous bride. Kelsey awaited her groom in a stunning Eden Anna Campbell gown reminiscent of the Greek goddesses, clutching a bouquet of balloons that hid her from view until she released them into the air at Ian’s arrival. Ryan Polei captured the day perfectly in his signature vintage style.
Festive details continued with piñata guestbooks where guests left notes to be read on the couple’s first anniversary. Signs matching the vintage festive theme of Kelsey & Ian’s invitations encouraged guests to replace their escort cards with polaroid snapshots. “Mr.” & “Mrs.” cornhole games and eclectic vintage vignettes entertained guests during cocktail hour.
Footers Catering and food trucks from Steubens, Manna from Heaven, and Sweet Cow Ice Cream offered fun food options, enjoyed at wooden tables adorned with milk glass vases, terrarium fish bowls, and silver animals at each place setting (with contributions from both the couple and Statice Floral Design). The beer wall offered self-serve taps under a moss-covered cheers sign and a dance floor was lit by Pure Energy Events.
Kelsey and Ian made their grand exit to the cheers of guests waving sparklers and rode off in a vintage car as newlyweds.
