landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country


I am definitely swooning over this wedding today. The bride and groom pulled together a handmade but polished vintage affair by incorporating borrowed china and silver, a cigar bar for him and a candy bar for her, and the bride’s unique dress and gorgeous bouquet. And then there are the hand sewn, coordinating escort cards, napkins, and table numbers-I’ve always loved this way of designating tables! I think my favorite part though, are the shots of the bride and groom post-ceremony, loving on each other in the beautiful greenery.



From the Photographer:

Neele and Walter planned a hometown wedding in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and they and their families and friends worked tirelessly to make it hit the vintage but modern mark Neele was looking for. They sewed 250 napkins, matching runners, and escort cards, laid out a cigar station and a candy bar, made moss covered initials to hang on the church door and stage throughout the reception, and sourced silver and china from relatives.
