Annette and David's Beautiful Boho Big Day at Turner Hall Ballroom
We've got mad love for Annette and David's Turner Hall Ballroom wedding with a fun bohemian vibe. While the wedding was supposed to take place outdoors, Mother Nature sent the party indoors, which actually made for a cool twist on the theme. While easy, breezy sun and sky is the obvious free-spirit approach, we love the juxtaposition of the venue's historical architecture against the boho touches of the day. The bride's look alone was enough to give us major style envy, complete with a chunky turquoise statement necklace, a floral crown of effortless blooms, and chunky Frye sandals for a laid-back, but still stunning look. The bridesmaids brought the theme to life in ombre coral gowns that were just as eye-catching as the bouquets filled with bright blooms. Heather Cook Elliott Photography did an amazing job capturing this one-of-a-kind affair, and you won't want to miss a single detail!
From the photographer:
Annette and David met in Madison what seems like a lifetime ago--before they lived in Atlanta, before grad school, before they had their dogs, before they moved back to Wisconsin. I guess you could just say "before" because now is all about "now." Now they are excited to be back in the land of Old Fashioneds and Packer fans, excited to be close to family again, excited to start real life post-school, and most of all excited about being married.
Their May wedding was exactly as they imagined it and at the same time so totally different. They were supposed to get married outside on a grassy hill on the Pabst campus, but wind and rain drove the ceremony inside, and happily so. I love the Edison-light framed images of their cozy and warm "I dos" from inside the captivating ballroom that is Turner Hall. I love how Annette’s crazy wonderful choice of ombre coral bridesmaid dresses and flowers pop against the dark aged columns of the room, how her vision of a southwestern-inspired palette with a little boho charm totally played up the idiosyncrasies of the gorgeously crumbling architecture of the hall. But on a more personal note, I love how the day and night were all about fun and family--so that meant customized beer coozies and great music, but also touching toasts from their now collectively large family, family-style meals, and being wed by one of David’s brothers.
In the end, no rain or wind could dampen a thing about David and Annette’s grand entrance into marriage. So let me be among the many to welcome the couple back to Wisconsin and most of all, to welcome them to their new life as husband and wife.
