New England brides, here’s a venue to put on your radar: Mill No. 5. Chhavy Sinuon of Style This Shindig says it’s quite the gem in Lowell, MA. The deets: It’s a textile mill building that’s being revived as a mixed-use space. They’re rebuilding with salvaged materials like a door from Dr. Suess’ house and over 400 year-old German façade (older than the US, can you believe it?!). 

The fab venue + loads of bright, modern wedding inspo to follow… Thanks to Sitha Vorn, Narin Sinuon + Chhavy for all the pics below!

Lush and green, with an urban sophistication.

Chhavy suggests bringing elements from life as a couple, like souvenirs, into the wedding theme. Also, use props from the big day in your home together afterward. Perfect, yes?

Lowell is a city of happy, resilient, and resourceful people with a story full of ups and downs. To show a piece of that, we chose the venue Mill No.5. It’s a great venue that reflects an aspect of where Lowell is today and where we want to be in the future.

Thanks for the great shoot, Chhavy + team!

Spring New York City elopement | Photo by Max and Friends | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=75102

R + T met while standing in a six hour line at the MoMa Rain Room exhibit in NYC. Turns out they got to know each other quite well. Sometimes you just gotta be in the right place at the right time, ya know?

The goal: simple and intimate, filled with their favorite things. They headed to City Hall to tie the knot, followed by a quick bite at Shake Shack, and a stroll through Central Park for some snaps to share with the fam. Lucky for us, Katherine & Luke of Max & Friends tagged along to document the whole sweet thing…

Rem says, Just before they called our number up at City Hall, Tempestt went to sit down and the zip on her dress popped open! Luckily, Anneliese was equipped with a box of safety pins. 15 pins later, the dress was pretty much as good as new, and we were on our way.

Words of wisdom, c/o the groom: Just do what feels right, and make it about you and your spouse. Enjoy the day. And each other.

Cheers!

Southern California hot air balloon engagement shoot | Photo by Deer Lovers | 100 Layer Cake

Photographer Anna of Deer Lovers had a hunch this shoot would be a good one. Could it be the fact that bride Ashton is a wedding planner, that the couple are world travelers, or that a hot air balloon would be involved? Whatever reason, she sure was right about this colorful scene for Ashton + Justin’s engagement shoot.

Something fun to capture their love of adventure + travel. Not to mention bright personalities. Photog Anna calls them the dream team.

Anna says, There is a hypnotizing charm about hot air balloons, and when you’re up in the air there is just utter silence. All of a sudden it’s just the two of them. In their own world. And it’s perfect.
