Art deco Detroit, Michigan wedding | photo by Jeffery Lewis Bennett | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=67518

Let’s start by sharing that this gorgeous couple is actually having FOUR weddings. Yes, four. It sounds crazy, but do you know what? It totally made sense for them and was the only way they could celebrate with all the people they loved in different parts of the country. This Art Deco wedding was their first, and their “official” wedding, inspired by all the things they love about the roaring 20’s and art deco periods.

As Rachelle was planning this wedding, she was actually still living in NYC, before the move to Detroit. Because she didn’t know anyone in the city or anyone who had been married there, she relied soley on the internet for everything. The one thing she KNEW she had to have (after hours and hours of research) was photos by JLB Photography. It was the one big splurge in all the rest of their party planning, it was she felt totally worth it. We totally agree.

The rest of her planning was pretty budget conscious, down to doing her own hair. She did it herself in only 15 minutes! So impressed, Rachelle. It’s gorgeous and perfectly fits your glamourous theme.

She found her beautiful scalloped, beaded dress at an evening gown boutique, which fit perfectly, and paid only $400. Nice!

As a surprise to Stephen, Rachelle walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of “Hail to the Victors” (the Michigan fight song). It was his favorite part of the day.

The only thing that is left to remind you of your wedding is the wedding photos and the video. It would be so disappointing to have bad photos, I have to mention that the ones posted here are special and beautiful to look at. I can't stop but stare at how gorgeous the couple looks. Good Job

Such a gorgeous wedding! I particularly LOVE the .gif file at the end of this post. What a superb idea and executed very well. Also the rooftop pic.. just awesome. Thank you for sharing this experience!

Does anyone happen to know the style name or number of this dress? It's stunning!

Rachelle on May 24, 2015

Candice, It's the Aidan Mattox Beaded Gown. I'm not sure where it would be available at this point since it is not an actual wedding dress. I bought it at a small boutique in NY but I know they carry other Aiden Mattoz dresses at Bloomingdales & Nordstrom. Good luck! Rachelle

Candice on Sep 21, 2015

Thanks for your response Rachelle! You were an absolutely beautiful bride! My hunt for this dress continues :)
