featured! esther + doan on the ruffled blog

esther & doan were one of those couples where every time we met, the meeting was guaranteed to be full of laughs, jokes, and swapping stories. even during our initial meeting we ended up talking about movies, fashion, their love of rap music, and of course how they started dating. all of a sudden, it was 2.5 hours later…so i knew we were destined to be! oooh it was love! (i absolutely have to love my couples!!)

one thing i loved about their planning was how involved doan was! he made sure to be at every meeting giving his input, as well as cracking jokes! i just love when grooms take an interest in the plans, because then the wedding will be a great mix of both their styles. plus i just adore getting to know both my brides and grooms…seeing their love for each other, as well as learning more about them and their personalities helps us incorporate that into their wedding design!

okay so back to my lovely couple & their fabulous wedding! esther is super fun & sassy…her style was feminine, but she still has a bit of a modern edge and wanted to stay away from anything too girly! i knew that carissa with jl designs was going to be the perfect match for floral design. when i sent esther the link to carissa’s site to take a look at…she fell in love with carissa’s work! i just LOVE when that happens! carissa (doan nicknamed her “the mad scientist”) and i collaborated on creating their wedding to be an exciting mix of harmonious opposites: silver and bronze metallic tones, feminine yet edgy, romantic yet modern! my favorite twist were the scabiosa pod boutonnieres which were wrapped in a soft charcoal velvet trim!

now doan, he’s the guy that’s always having fun. he just wanted the wedding to be a killer party, and have cool music. they both were all about their wedding being the party of the century! supernova was such a perfect fit for them, since their string quartet plays a delightful fusion of anything from classical, hip hop, rock, and pop hits. so when doan told me that he and his guys were going to walk out for the ceremony to metallica’s “enter sandman” i was beyond thrilled! supernova kept the rocked it out during the cocktail hour with hits like beyonce and tupac, mixed in with a little journey and guns and roses! those guys are serious magic on the strings! for the remainder of the reception, mike with carcano dj kept the dance floor packed tighter than a free concert! so so much fun!! esther and doan, you both have so much love & laughter for your future…i am so happy for you guys!

now just a warning, the photos below are way to amazing for words! i mean seriously, aaron delesie rocked it out on this one….okay…he always rocks it out, but i am just in love with the magic he captured in their wedding images! wow!
