    I love the simplicity of today’s Moonrise Kingdom-inspired wedding. It’s a creative, laid-back, hippie little wedding that looks like so much fun. And the portraits are beyond breathtaking. The whole event just feels like a family and friends lovefest and super fun party – isn’t that what every wedding should be? The bride and groom both share the details below too.

    Your inspiration for the wedding day? The Wes Andersen movie Moonrise Kingdom was actually one of our inspirations for the wedding day. The colors, and charming Wes Andersen details, and the great soundtrack were all inspiring elements we wanted to incorporate. We used the color scheme from the film, incorporated lots of cozy details, and had the most amazing live band ever for the soundtrack!

    Advice for planning couples now? Hang in there and don’t lose sight of what you really want. The wedding industry is incredible and unbelievable. We began planning with a low-key wedding in mind that would be all about friends, family, wine and music, then we got pulled into the grandiose ideas that were forced upon us from the wedding industry, the huge expensive venues, the catering services, the different “package deals” that venues offered, etc. When we finally questioned what we really wanted we ended up back at the idea of low-key and relaxed party, where we could focus on the true things that we love. What better way to celebrate your love?

    Your favorite moment of or memory from the day? Our favorite moment from the day was sitting at our table where we had two empty chairs for friends and family to come say hi. We sat there drinking wine, chatting with whoever was next to visit with us, food was brought, and we had the ultimate satisfaction at having the official ceremony and title of being married under our belt.

    What made your wedding you?

    Danny’s answer: For me, what made the wedding me, was having the live band.  I always felt like with our wedding the live band, and the style of soulful, funky classic songs they played, perfectly represented me in the wedding and the photography, having two very skilled and artistic photographers capturing it all, perfectly represented Bree (in my opinion) in the wedding.  These were the two big expenses that we each decided were a must-have in our wedding, and I felt like they kind of represented the two elements that were highly important to each of us.  Bree says: Couldn’t have said it better, I loved having these amazing photographers at our day. We had such an amazing community of people there, from our family and friends to the amazing people taking photos, playing music, cooking food, every one meshed together seamlessly and made for an amazing day.

    What a personal family affair! And those portraits by Orange Owl are absolutely breathtaking. Congrats to Bree & Danny!

       Charlie helped me decorate the mantle for fall by adding his Halloween touch and picking out all of the pumpkins. I love the colorful spiders @target had this year.
