When I’m getting to know a couple, I send them a little questionnaire to find out more about their story. My favorite question asks them which of the following their relationship is most like: a cozy blanket, a romantic comedy, a firework show, or other (and to explain). Most of my brides choose the first two, but Cleo chose the last, explaining that they are most like a musical comedy. I was immediately intrigued. She went on to say that they are both musical enthusiasts, and that they spend their time laughing, having fun, constantly singing and dancing together. I knew right then that this wedding would be amazing! I love a couple that loves taking joy in just being together, making each other laugh, and not taking themselves too seriously as they navigate all that life brings their way. It’s a recipe for a happy life, you guys!
So a Great Gatsby theme totally seemed perfect for these two lighthearted romantics, and I have to say, their wedding did not disappoint. I’m talking rich jewel toned dresses, a beaming bride in an art deco inspired dress, a flapper dress dance off in an alley, a sweet daughter and father first look, a bride and groom duet at the altar (!!!), and a seriously amazing reception decked out in gorgeous florals and F. Scott Fitzgerald quotes to get everyone in the mood for celebrating. Cleo and Devin, there’s no one else like you two and I’m so incredibly honored that I got to capture the day you pledged your lives to one another!
