Something Old... Our wedding ceremony venue was the third floor above Red Velvet, my boutique. We fell in love with the space at first sight, but the logistics of holding an event in the space were a little crazy. The room was originally a recreation room with a small basketball court and set up for films to show on a large wall (seen above). There is currently no heat, air conditioning or electricity of any kind on this floor so we had to hold our wedding on day with nice weather and in the middle of the day so that the lighting would be perfect. That said, it's one of the prettiest rooms I've ever seen with peeling wallpaper, exposed ceilings and huge windows. I'm so glad that we chose to host our wedding ceremony there for both sentimental and aesthetic reasons. We loved that no one had ever been married in this exact spot before.
Something New… I wore a dress from Orla Kiely's spring collection on my wedding day. She's my favorite designer of all time, so it seemed like a good fit. I loved the daisy trim detail around the neckline. I will definitely cherish the dress forever and ever.
Something Borrowed... This pretty vintage bird tree was borrowed from my blog pal Abbey of Aesthetic Outburst. It became an inspiration piece for a lot of the decor for our wedding. Birds and feathers were a theme….
Something Blue… My maid of honor and flower girl both dyed their hair blue for the wedding day! Emma's hair was planned to be minty blue, but it just didn't happen that way and it turned out to be super bold. She looked gorgeous. Hope is a Coraline fan, so her color was perfect on her too! It was so cute that they decided to do that. It made me really happy and is such a cute memory!

Something Old is meant to represent the link with the bride’s own family and the past particularly mother or grandmother or even most distant relations.
I just loved the new concept of blue coloured hairs.And the hair accessories used were awesome.The whole thing was just completely unconventional and perfect!!!!!
