Lea & Matt {Blush & Gold Rustic Elegance Wedding at The Willow Tree, Tipp City Ohio}

BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1949

From Lea, the Bride: “We met in France in October of 2010. Through years of Skype calls and plane flights, we have developed appreciation for both French and American cultures. We’re incorporating both languages into our wedding. For example, our menu as well as party favors are in french. Our inspiration for the decor is a classy/vintage look that incorporates both of our styles and likes. Through research and many hours of hard work (mostly by Lea :) our vision will come to life using the barn at the Willow Tree as the back drop, and adding elegance to this rustic scene.”

I really cannot say enough about this sweet couple. First of all, Matt plays for Hawthorne Heights. How cool is that?! And he met Lea when they were on tour in France, where she is from. Again, how cool is THAT?! Their day was stunning. Lea has a beautiful, creative style, and her vision for their day was magical, and also happened to perfectly correspond with Chloe Luka Photography’s branding colors! It was meant to be. :)

But in all seriousness, Matt and Lea, I was so humbled by your generosity and kindness. It was evident to all those that traveled hundreds of miles to celebrate with you, and especially to Tim and I.  I’ve never had a bride and groom tell me thank you as much as you both did throughout the day. I felt genuinely welcomed into your lives, and felt like a member of the family, especially when you seated Tim and I with your parents for the reception! But that’s just who the two of you are. You love and serve those around you, and live every moment to the fullest. I loved every second I was able to spend with you both, and your wedding was a dream. So excited to share it today! Love you guys :)

Jessie of Sherwood Florist blew me away with her arrangements! Isn’t Lea’s bouquet to die for?! BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1884 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1885 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1886 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1888 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1889 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1890 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1891 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1892 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1893 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1894 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1895 BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1896

I loved this. Both sets of parents left the ceremony together, holding hands. Such a beautiful picture that a marriage is not just unifying two people, but two sets of families. BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1992

And these mamas were too precious. BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1986BlushGoldRusticEleganceWedding_1993

Don’t even get me started on these reception details. Lea, you did a phenomenal job! And Jessie from Sherwood Florist, again, so perfect.

    I was so lucky to participate in my good friends, Matt and Lea’s wedding celebration! The bride decorated the reception with beautiful pink and gold notes and the groom built the dessert and drink bars himself! I couldn’t be more proud of them for putting on one beautiful party.

    This is the photographer, Chloe Luka’s post from the day.
