Aerin and Jeremy's Wedding

Big

We really wanted our wedding to reflect our eclectic tastes and love of decades past. We love design, history, gothic horror, and science fiction, so we blended these elements into a anachronistic melange glazed with a Neo-Victorian aesthetic: our venue was a lumber baron's summer home built in 1911; our table decorations included curios from our collection, such as a 1920s "lightning speed indicator" device, stereograms of fin de siècle seances, and antique glass eyes. We drank Old-Fashioneds made from an 1895 recipe. My engagement ring was made in 1933 and Jeremy wore an antique silver brooch (which was supposedly haunted!) as a tie pin. The reception music included live acoustic guitar provide by a musician friend as well as a healthy dose of early electro works from the '70s. And somehow, it all worked together!

I don't know anything about flowers, but had some vague ideas of what I wanted. Wendi was amazing to work with and helped me with all the little details.

Cupcake Jones is truly awesome. Lisa is so enthusiastic about her cupcakes, you just want to take them all. They're organic, beautiful and tasty. What more could you ask for?! She even hid a few for us so we were sure to have leftovers after the wedding.

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer! We're rather camera shy, but wanted someone to document all of the little moments of our wedding that we knew would go so fast. Jessica really understood us and captured all of the little details we worked so hard to create, as well as some fantastic moments that will now be with us forever.

Ceremony & Reception

Lanning and his team really took care of us. He made sure that our wedding was exactly what we wanted. Our entire family stayed at The White House for weekend and we had both our ceremony and reception in various parts of the house. Their food is amazing! This was the perfect place for our wedding and stay for our family.
