landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Considering I have nearly 8,000 gumballs sitting in my dining room right now, this photo completely resonates with me. (And, no I’m not kidding about the 8,000 gumballs).

Because sometimes weddings warrant the need to take off your shoes and go barefoot.

Hot pink. Lots and lots of hot pink peep toes!

Thanks to Jeremy Lawson for bringing the LOLs. I literally DIED from laughter.  And, kudos to the bride for being a good sport. Hope it brings a smile to your face on this Monday!

Why, hello Chuck! (Not that Chuck)

Best wedding jumping photo ever. And, see the guy to the left of the groom, Todd? That’s the best man – Todd’s Dad. Kudos to another groom for asking his dad to stand up for him (Kate‘s husband did the same).

Whitley placed her dog’s collar tags on her bouquet in memory of her, as she recently passed away from lymphoma. Talk about pulling at your heart strings.

The cupcakes. Did I not warn you about these cupcakes? The bride happens to work at Molly’s Cupcakes in Chicago, and made these herself! And, how can you not love the retro Nintendo cake. Score.

I can’t help but love a wedding with a lot of character. And funk. And fun. And, really really ridiculously good looking cupcakes (stay tuned for part two).


For the record, I’m dying over these shoes.
