Real Wedding: Audrey & Mike

Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.

I’m a necklace girl. Months before I went dress shopping, I bought a statement necklace from J. Crew that I knew I’d wear on my wedding day. When it was finally time to start the hunt for the dress I had a very specific look in mind: simple, structured and absolutely no lace. My aunt kept pushing me towards dresses that were poofy at the bottom and I wasn’t interested in that style at all. I eventually caved and tried on what I considered to be a total wildcard dress when none of the other gorgeous gowns were quite hitting the mark. I walked out of the dressing room and felt like the most chic version of myself. Everyone oohed and aahed. That was the day I found my wedding dress. It was the exact opposite of what I thought I wanted, yet totally perfect. And guess what? The non-traditional necklace everyone thought I was crazy for buying first was exactly the edge I needed this vintage-inspired Theia dress to have!

What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?

Like everyone, we wanted our wedding to look and feel like us….just turned up a few notches on the fancy meter.  Some words that kept floating around throughout the planning process were: classic, quirky, romantic and fun. Looking back, I think we really pulled off something lovely and everyone had a blast.

Song selection was key for pulling off the right vibe. We knew playing the standard wedding hits wasn’t for us. Our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception included music from Neutral Milk Hotel, Fiona Apple, Nirvana, Bright Eyes, Weezer, The Smiths, Hall and Oates and Steve Winwood. We were introduced as the DJ blasted “Bulls on Parade” by Rage Against the Machine.

Since our dog couldn’t be at the ceremony or reception, it was important that we snapped some photos with her before the wedding. My birthday presents the year before were an engagement ring and her, so she’d been with us on the entire journey towards the big day. My parents surprised us with a life-size cardboard cutout of her that ended up being the hit of the dance floor and photo booth!

What was the most memorable moment?

This is too tough! Can I have three?

Everything about our ceremony was magical, from the dim lighting and twinkling candles to the heartfelt words spoken by our friend of over a decade. It was short, sweet, a little funny and really just perfectly us. Standing in front of everyone we love and promising to share our lives together forever was a really powerful moment that I’ll always treasure. Seeing my husband’s (Ah! Husband!) face after we were officially announced as husband and wife was the best. And the kiss wasn’t too bad either!

While our friends and family were enjoying cocktail hour, the venue staff whisked us away for a sneak peek at the reception before anyone else got to see it. It was just Mike and I looking at all of our choices come to life. I’m a bit of a control freak and was convinced that something would be wrong. But I was wrong! The room and the fact that those empty chairs would soon be filled with people who mean the most to use in this world took my breath away.

After cocktail hour when guests moved into the ballroom for the reception, my Dad surprised everyone by singing “The Folks Who Live on The Hill” by Johnny Mathis. Without any music he took the mic and belted out the sweetest lyrics. It was so brave and touching. Dads often get left out of the sometimes chaotic wedding process, so I was so really happy that he got to have a special moment that ended up being a wonderful gift we’ll never forget.

If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?

It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in how things look in bridal magazines and on Pinterest. Don’t let all of those stunning images steer you away from your original vision. Be true to who you are as a couple. Ask for the opinions of loved ones because this is a special time for them too, but don’t let their answers decide your fate. Choose your vendors wisely and trust in their talents. “Honey gets more bees than vinegar.” Be nice to everyone you deal with throughout the process of planning your wedding. All of those people who tell you to enjoy every moment because it goes by so fast are right. I didn’t believe them either! Take the time to soak it all in. Accept that something will go wrong before it does. That way you’re mentally prepared for when is does (and it will). You can check it off the list and move on without feeling like it’s the end of the world. Above all else try to remember: at the end of the day you’ll be married and that’s what really matters.
