It turned out to be a perfect day in Redlands the day of Chad + Chelsea’s wedding! The couple had chosen a Roaring 20s theme which was beyond perfect for the historic Mitten Building. Every detail was thought of including a perfectly designed cake by Laura Marie’s Cakes, hand painted wine bottles by the bride with gold and white feathers (for centerpieces), and little tuxedo menus for each place setting.
Chelsea’s dress was an excellent choice for both her personality and theme. What are the chances!? (As you can see below the dress is form fitted, classic lace with a beaded back.)
Their florist Above the Stem Floral Design did such a beautiful job of creating a bouquet that incorporated the theme (feathers in a bouquet….LOVE!) as well as a tribute to the bride’s mother.
There were plenty of memorable moments to be had during the getting ready portion of the day. To view more special moments including a morning jump on the bed between besties, click here.
The couple opted in for a First Look to ease tension, to have a special private moment between the two of them and also to allow for plenty of fun portrait taking. Look how cute they are…
The bride’s dad also planned to have a vintage car parked outside for additional ambiance and of course…picture taking! What a brilliant idea!
(There are WAY more photos than this including the car, but I can only include so many in a blog post. Sigh…. View more by clicking here.)
Let’s talk about the wedding party for a second. As you will see below, they were an absolute BORE! HA! Just kidding. Every single capture with the group was too fun!
How awesome is the gold confetti and matching sunglasses?! Genius idea! Also adding in the train tracks as a back drop doesn’t hurt either. 🙂
After an abundance of portrait taking (our fav!), we then rolled into the important part…the ceremony. The Mitten Building provides an exquisite backdrop to say “I do.” An intimate setting with brick walls, exposed beams, candle light and your loved ones….doesn’t get much better. Swoon!
The reception was a hoot and was filled with heart felt speeches which made you laugh and cry, a crowded dance floor thanks to the DJ (Musical Phunktions), and delicious cuisine.
Overall, this wedding will go down in the books as one of our favorites! Here are a few more portraits to leave you with, and also be sure and check out their highlight video provided by the Allie M. Photo Team! Videography is a new service for 2017 and we are so pleased we are able to offer it!
