Though Stephanie and Brian live in London and got engaged in Paris, they picked the bride's alma mater, Indiana University of Bloomington, to tie the knot. The couple thoughtful incorporated details that represented their world-wide adventure into their wintry wedding, starting with delicate ivory and navy invitations from Double Bravo Designs.
Stephanie wore a 50's lace gown from a vintage bridal shop in London; an elbow length tulle veil and a pair of ivory Fendi peep toes completed her classic look. She carried a classic rose and tuberose bouquet by event planner Cathy Teeters, tied with "something blue" (an ink-stained handkerchief that her grandfather passed down to her father) and finished with "something borrowed" (her grandmother's brooch). Brian's bespoke Paul Smith suit paired beautifully with his black Paul Smith shoes, a simple Gucci tie and a pair of vintage cufflinks his new wife had given him years earlier.
The intimate Beck Chapel served as the perfect ceremony site for this romantic pair, and after exchanging vows and antique wedding rings, the couple and their nearest and dearest headed across the snowy campus to the Indiana Memorial Union for a candlelight supper. After a slice of cake from their three-tiered Sugar and Spice confection, the new Mr and Mrs danced cheek to cheek to "Si tu vois ma mère". The theme song to Midnight in Paris was the perfect way to honor their engagement in Paris and start their married life off on the right foot.
Many, many thanks to photographer Eric Rudd for sharing these beautiful images with me; I can't image a more perfect way to start the new year! Tell me, what's your favorite photo or detail from this wintry wedding?
