Naturally, NotWedding New Orleans wouldn’t be complete without a second line. Check out the pretty images below and get ready to pin:

Bishop Farm Wedding

Today’s wedding comes to us thanks to the talents of Dreamlove Photography and By Emily B., who respectively captured and styled this impeccable Bishop Farm shindig. No detail was left unconsidered, from the wooden signs to the seafoam and pink place settings to the cheery floral arrangements.

From the bride, Eliza: Our favorite memory of the day is how it all felt — throughout the day, we were completely overwhelmed by all the love, support, and laughter surrounding us. If we had to pick one moment that showed this, it was during the second to last song of the night. The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” was playing and although the groom and I started dancing with each other, everyone spontaneously worked themselves into a swaying circle to which we, ourselves, could not resist being a part of! By the end of the song, there wasn’t a guest sitting at their table or anyone standing outside the barn — every single person was swaying, together, in a huge circle on the dance floor. At some point, I remember looking at my now-husband and I knew we were thinking the same thing: We are seriously the luckiest people in the world to have so many wonderful people in our lives!

Any advice for other couples planning their weddings now? Our advice would be to carefully pick and choose what is most important to you and what represents you and to not sweat the rest. To us, we saw our wedding as a community event, a celebration of not just us, but also of the love and support our dearest friends and families have given us. As such, we spent a lot of time working on things that would reflect this: From planning weekend events to maximizing time spent with everyone to writing fun, personalized notes for every guest on the back of their escort card, we wanted to thank all of our guests for joining in on the celebration and for being, well, awesome! That said, we also had the luxury of having an amazing set of vendors, each of whom we could entirely trust to take our general ideas to the next level, while ensuring that the specific details that we did choose to spend time on to be carried out flawlessly. Have fun with it and everyone else will too!

From the photographer, Dreamlove Photography: Eliza and Brent traveled all the way from San Francisco to host their eco-friendly wedding in the rural green hills of New Hampshire. Bishop Farm was the perfect venue for these two, with it’s rustic New England charm, and environmentally friendly amenities like solar-powered cabins! Our favorite details were the antique furniture, provided by the lovely By Emily B. design team, and the bright and artful flowers everywhere! Eliza’s bouquet had air plants that were actually blooming! Eliza had the genius idea of having guests use ball jars for their drinks during cocktail hour, and write their names on the glasses so they could keep using them all night! From the donut cake to the handwritten escort card messages to each guest, this wedding was overflowing with personal touches, making in an incredibly unique event.

From the bride, Christina: We wanted something beautiful, fun, casual, and for our wedding to be a day filled with love for each other, our families and our friends. Our wedding planner coined the term Industrial Glamour/Industrial Chic to describe our style. Our colors were gold, silver, champagne, white, blush, grey.

From the stylist, Jennifer Minns of Luxe Special Events: Christina & Jonathan’s love for each other is simply tangible in a room. They are the kind of couple we just want to work our tails off for to create a warm, fuzzy, intimate ambiance to surround their sweet selves in on their wedding day. They met almost 5 years ago through Jon’s sister at their church. After a few years of dating, Jon proposed on Windansea Beach with boxes of mementos of their relationship. He sang a song for her and she accepted his proposal. Christina and Jonathan chose the New Children’s Museum as their wedding venue to host an elegant and interactive adventure. Upon entering, guests were provided a map of the museum to guide them to hidden surprises and favorite playful exhibits. The urban industrial backdrop lent a blank canvas for the soft, romantic blush flowers and gold accents. Linens and Versailles chairs were chosen in white for a clean finish. Although Christina & Jonathan had a definite opinion on styling, this couple had their hearts and wishes right where they should be – the sanctity of the ceremony. “It’s all about the vows. “And so together with Root 75, we brainstormed the stunning garland draped altar structure to frame them during their ceremony. Over-sized balloons guided guests to cocktails near the bounce house after. Downstairs, a stunning reception including long white family-style tables with ikat polka dot and stripe runners held miles of romantic arrangements and candlelight. Guests enjoyed a creative foodie dinner (ancho smoked gun chicken in a mason jar, yum) and a generous display of desserts created by a dear friend. The wedding day was playful, dreamy, and romantic all at once.
