Real Wedding: Bethany + Jules

January 17, 2011

Guys, we’ve got the prettiest wedding to share with you today. Many of you may recognize the incredibly cool warehouse venue from our recent vendor roundup – so now you’ll get to see even more great shots of that unbelievable receipt paper altar piece, the exposed brick, antique walls, and those totally gorgeous sky-high windows. Bethany and her beau Jules did the most superb job putting this downtown Kansas City wedding together in a mere four months. We’re completely in love with the color palette they chose, with so many pretty neutral tones and little pops of yellow and green.

How cute is this shot of them dashing across a street? They look adorable, and we love Jules’ suspenders!

Bethany found that elegant dress off the rack for less than $500 (!) and had it altered to perfection. She chose really cute floral printed bridesmaids dresses and some super lush green bouquets, which look sooo pretty together.

The space, Arts Incubator Event Loft, really does take the cake. It’s almost perfect as-is, but the elements they added –  like the crisp white tables and strings of lights on bare tree branches – make it even better.

Bethany was even sweet enough to pass on a little info on how simple the receipt paper backdrop (inspired by something her planners spotted at Anthropologie!) was to make, too. All you need is foam board, a staple gun, and about a billion rolls of receipt paper. The final result is just so soft and beautiful, and compliments the rustic walls so perfectly!

Congrats Bethany & Jules – and thanks for letting us share your uber-beautiful day!
