Megan & Steve’s Black, White and Music-themed Wedding
Steve is a musician and this played a big role in their wedding. His lovely bride Megan is incredibly supportive of him so their wedding was an elegantly-funky celebration filled with rocker chic music-themed black and white details and personal touches including Steve playing live a large portion of the reception with his friends and bandmates!
This inspiring feature is courtesy of the talents of Natalie Champa Jennings Photography (whose stylish camera work was also showcased via Terri & Lenny’s jazzy blue NOLA wedding). Here she is with more to share about the event:
Megan & Steve organized a rockin’ Minnesota wedding at the Profile Event Center in St. Paul. Complete with customized guitar picks and vinyl record decor, this couple’s love for music made their wedding shine. Megan altered and wore her mother’s dress topped off with a homemade bouquet. Steve showed his rockstar side by performing a few special tunes and included his beloved guitar in the couple’s photographs for a classic, musical touch.
I thought Natalie’s unobtrusive photographic style perfectly captured the mood of this classy rock and roll celebration. Check it out below!
Black & white is such an effortlessly chic color motif for a wedding! Don’t you just love the combination of Megan’s bridal dress (her mom’s!) and her sheer black scarf cover up? And that black bridesmaid’s dress with lace detail is divine, as is Steve’s black & white ensemble below.
Aww, such a sweet first look…
Can I just say that I am in love with these “traveling musician” portraits!?
Totally loving this album cover / band photo style shot of the bridal party!
Absolutely adore this “stolen kiss” shot! (And if you look closely, you will see photographer Natalie in action in this pic).
Melted vinyl record “bowls” were used throughout the reception.
Here they are again as candle holder centerpieces. (If you want to make your own vinyl record bowl, I found this DIY tutorial)
Thank you so much Natalie for sharing this beautiful music-inspired wedding with all of us today and congratulations to the couple!
