When bride Marissa shared her wedding with us, I was stunned. The insanely gorgeous style, the ridiculously perfect images from Apryl Ann Photography, the utterly fab setting, and crafting that’s totally cray I couldn’t decide on a favorite piece of the awesomely elegant puzzle! Infusing classic and timeless beauty with loads of family centered love, Marisa + Moky’s wedding is sort of amazing in ways I had never imagined.
Marisa is totally our kind of gal! Not only did she look stunning in both of her gowns, but she managed to get both at a super good deal! Her first gown was an Atelier Aimee dress from preownedweddingdresses.com , and the second was a fantastic J.Mendel dress found on eBay. Marisa’s not just a good fashion hunter, she’s down right crafty too! Creating all the paper goods from invitations to programs and the beautiful Japanese paper signage, she also handmade the favors and the bridesmaids hairpieces as gifts. Another stunner came from a friend. She had the idea of using vintage thrift shop mirrors for signage and a friend hand painted them all! Since we all know a DIY Bride can’t stop after her big day, Marisa shared that she turned one of the mirrors (a fave find) into a coat hanger in their new home.
Thank you Marissa for sharing your beautiful day with us! Big thanks to an awesome team of vendors, including Apryl Ann Photography who helped bring Marissa and Moky’s vision to life!
