Leave it to Jo and Chris to transport us back to the time of rock and roll, vinyl records and juke boxes. Their shared passion for the 50s era was displayed intricately in their wedding. From the bridesmaid’s bright red dresses, their location at the funky historic Lafayette Hotel, and Jo’s gorgeous 50s inspired makeup. The couple undoubtedly created an unforgettable experience for the friends and family.
Jo was the epitome of 50s Hollywood royalty in her beautiful sweetheart gown , while her soon to be husband was nothing short of dapper amongst his groomsmen as they posed for portraits. Jo and Chris were intent on creating a unique atmosphere for the wedding, one that perfectly represented their style and personalities.
The ceremony space at the Lafayette Hotel was transformed into something out of the ordinary. The dangling colorful umbrellas, the vintage chairs and couches, the adjoining doors decorated with pepper lights and the refreshing lemonade stand; defiantly gave a creative twist to the proceedings and help to bring their theme to life. Tears flowed freely when the sweet couple exchanged their heartfelt vows.
After the ceremony, we found a gorgeous space in the hotel that allowed us to capture a few priceless portraits of the couple. It truly looked like a scene from a movie as the two stared lovingly into each other’s eyes. The reception was a fusion of vintage sophistication. Guests signed a guitar instead of a guestbook and ate from vinyl placemats while a rockabilly band played through the night. We can’t forget the blue cake adorned with skulls and the warm toasts to the bride and groom.
It was an absolute pleasure to capture the precious moments between Jo, Chris and their friends and family on their special day.
