Class is in Session with This Schoolhouse Wedding
Tiffany and Jay Brussow have gone to school together since the fifth grade, so when it came time for the couple to choose a venue, an old schoolhouse seemed like the perfect fit.
“I wanted it to feel like a step back in time, but also be fun,” says Tiffany Brussow, who decorated their big day with lots of old books--all love stories, of course, alphabet blocks spelling out "you and me" and "kiss," miniature chalkboards, and vintage flashcards. “My husband and I were [even] able to swing on the swing set just minutes before our ceremony.”
Doing their homework to find an original space that captured both a romantic and vintage vibe, the couple’s guests walked away enchanted by the charm of the event. But extra credit came to the Brussows in the way of their budget. At a couple hundred to rent and no vendor restrictions, the couple could rule the school. “The schoolhouse theme is easy to work with and get inspiration from,” says Tiffany. “It would be perfect for a couple of teachers, librarians, historians, and even just lovers of good books.”
From the photographer:
Tiffany and Jay simply rented the Cooksville School house and town square a community hall and made their vision come to life. The dress, the chairs, the colors, the details, everything came together so flawlessly. I know why she chose these vendors, this bride has impeccable taste and vision and I am so honored she choose me to photograph this gorgeous day.
