With the perfect balance of elegant sophistication and a playful, free spirit, Nicole and Justin’s beautiful wedding reception at NOAH’S of Madison, Wisconsin was absolutely unforgettable. They paired bright colors and fresh details with the chic, modern backdrop of NOAH’S to create their unique look. The lovebirds’ reception was a fun, laid-back, floral dreamscape where their guests could drink, eat, and dance the night away… all in the name of love.
We’re utterly obsessed with Nicole’s bridal look. Her lace, trumpet silhouette dress was both classy and modern, with a swishy train and dramatic illusion cut-outs to add a unique flair. Her hair was gathered up in a sweet bun that was bound with her long, romantic veil. On a playful note, we were all heart eyes about Nicole and her bridesmaids’ cheeky heart-shaped sun glasses; perfect for a quick and memorable photoshoot before the reception! They kept the bouquets bright, bold, and slightly bohemian with heady pink tea flowers, tiny indigo berries, delicate lilies, sultry roses, surreal blue thistle, and other exotic blooms. Combined with her gorgeous white gown and the bridesmaids’ dark teal dresses, the bright orange, pink, and red bouquets set the stage for a stunning and glamorous reception.
Justin chose a classically dark-and-dashing look for himself and his groomsmen, opting for slick charcoal gray suits that were so dark they were nearly black, white vests and pocket squares, and smart, dark neckties. We loved the splash of color and creativity that the groom’s exotic red boutonniere added to his outfit.
We can’t help but add a quick shout-out to Justin and Nicole’s precious pups! At a separate photoshoot, these doggies flaunted their nuptial joy with adorable floral collars, looking and smelling sweet for their favorite couple’s big day! So cute!
The couple’s reception details were colorful, artistic, and perfectly on-trend with lace, wood, vintage motifs, and delicate florals. Nicole and Justin laid tables with old-fashioned lace runners, antique candelabras with dainty taper candles, intricate silver vases holding dazzling floral arrangements accented with pretty pheasant feathers, and a myriad of tastefully mismatched frames holding photos of passed loved ones who couldn’t be there for the special day. The rustic wooden signage that Nicole and Justin chose was decorated with flowy brush script and romantic quotes, which perfectly tied in with their artsy invitations and table markers.
As for dessert, Nicole and Justin indulged their sweet tooth with piles and piles of gourmet cupcakes decorated with sugary iced strawberries, crystalline sprinkles, chocolate chips, decadent caramel, and frosting roses. The clean-cut white cake was simple yet unique, with an adorable banner topper and a side of fresh flowers. It was nearly too cute to eat… nearly!
This fabulous couple showed us how to party and we’re so lucky we got to spend an evening with them to celebrate their marriage. Both sophisticated and perfectly merry, this bold, floral reception was one for the books! Congrats to Nicole and Justin!
