Real Wedding: Brooke & Eric

Brooke & Eric wanted an elegant, simple wedding with touches of a Great Gatsby theme running through. Set in the exquisite Mount Airy Mansion and with an emerald green and gold colour palette, their special day oozes sophisticated romance. 

The Wedding

I wanted a super elegant/classy wedding which is why I picked a low key Great Gatsby theme! It was around 125 guest so it was definitely a good time. If I were to describe it in three words I would say classy, simple and fun!

The Venue

We got married and had the reception at Mount Airy Mansion it was super pretty & simple. I feel like it fit the theme perfectly.

The Dress

I got my dress from Davids Bridal on clearance after a week of being engaged haha. I honestly have no idea who it is designed by but I’m assuming since it was on clearance it wasn’t a super big designer!

Hair & Makeup

I’m not a big makeup person so I had my little sister do something very simple and what she felt looked best for me! I wanted to use my natural hair and a natural hairstyle I searched on YouTube and Pinterest for a couple of hairstyles and my cousin Nina made my vision come to life!

Bridesmaid Dresses

My bridesmaid got their dresses from JJsHouse! I love the colour green and how the dress fit all of them! It was very flattering and for a good price!

Flowers

I had artificial flowers and I kept going back between hydrangeas and orchids and decided to use hydrangeas and some greenery! The bouquet was very simple but gorgeous!

The Cake

We got our cake from Charles Street Bakery. It was a simple six-inch cake with white buttercream icing and a couple decorative flowers! I’m a big cake person and my husband is a big cookie person so we decided to do both! Everyone loved it!! Who doesn’t like cookies!?
