When it comes to wedding inspiration, nothing is quite so magical as seeing what real couples do for their big day. That's why 100 Layer Cake is our source for peeping the most beautiful ways brides and grooms say "I do," featuring weddings from Australia to Napa. Brides, beware: You're going to want to pin just about everything you see. And, even if you're not engaged, you'll want to check it out just to enjoy the love story.
Let’s start by sharing that this gorgeous couple is actually having four weddings. Yes, four. It sounds crazy, but do you know what? It totally made sense for them and was the only way they could celebrate with all the people they loved in different parts of the country. This Art Deco wedding was their first, and their “official” wedding, inspired by all the things they love about the roaring '20s and art deco periods.
As Rachelle was planning this wedding, she was actually still living in NYC, before the move to Detroit. Because she didn’t know anyone in the city or anyone who had been married there, she relied soley on the internet for everything. The one thing she knew she had to have (after hours and hours of research) was photos by JLB Photography. It was the one big splurge in all the rest of their party planning, it was she felt totally worth it. We totally agree.
