A Mad Hatter Tea Party Meets Carnivale Wedding

Lanee & Brian  |  July 15, 2017

 

From the bride:  Our wedding style was fun and whimsical with bright vibrant colors, balloons and pom-poms. The rainbow was our color palette from hot pink to lime green to purple to electric blue. We love to dance, so we got married under a disco ball. We also love to dress up and go to costume parties. We asked our guests to join in the fun and wear bright colors and fancy hats.

THE CEREMONY

We got married at my grandmother’s house, where I spent part of my childhood. We crafted the ceremony ourselves. We asked only the kids in our family to be part of our ceremony. I walked down the aisle to the Sesame Street theme song, it was my favorite show as a little one. We wrote our own vows together and delivered them via alternating lines. We also did a handfasting, in which our parents laid the ropes over our hands.

THE RECEPTION

We had incredibly good food, served on farmhouse tables under a beautiful white tent, a last minute addition because of the threat of rain. The décor was simple with Peruvian striped colorful runners and tons of copper vases with wildflowers. Our table vases were all upcycled glass bottles we spray painted copper. The dessert table was decorated with our mascot: a rainbow colored unicorn piñata. We had an adorable and incredibly fun custom painted canvas as the backdrop for our photobooth. We also had square dancing, with a live band and caller, our guests loved it.
