Autumn & Emilio’s Family-Focused Lageret Wedding

The classy mix of neutrals, textural elements, and the cutest flower girl made for the perfect combination to represent the bride and groom. Not only did Autumn and Emilio have an incredible wedding, they are a truly passionate couple and their love for each other cannot be overlooked. From day one, Autumn and Emilio’s top priority on their wedding day was showing their love for one another, and focusing on becoming one family with their daughter, Aria, right by their side. Aria’s adorable smile is sure to melt your heart and her poofy dress was unmatched in the cuteness category. 

A stunning tobacco factory turned wedding venue provided the perfect industrial meets romance backdrop. Other than the stunning florals provided by Amanda at Pollen House, not much was needed in terms of decor and they let the naturally gorgeous venue speak for itself. The cream city brick walls made for a lovely framework for the ceremony while the array of vintage lounge furniture provided a stylish environment to rest your feet from the dance floor. 

Neutrals were carried throughout all of the decor elements for the day – from the linens, to the paper goods, to the floral elements. The bridesmaids’ mostly white bouquets perfectly paired with the dusty rose velvet Jenny Yoo gowns. From there, vines of ivy were draped intentionally throughout the venue to provide a whimsical and romantic vibe. But my absolute favorite part of this wedding was the love that was poured into the day from family and friends. Both Emilio and Autumn’s families were truly present, and a big part of their day. 

Autumn and Emilio – thank you for sharing your love, your relationship, and your beautiful wedding day with us. Enjoy just a few of our favorite details from your special day!

XO, Renee
