Kyle and Louisa aren't your average couple and didn't want their wedding to be cookie-cutter either. When talking about the wedding with their us, they said, "We don't want it to resemble a wedding except that maybe there's love and a white dress." Given that they hosted their event at one of Brooklyn's coolest concert venues, The Bell House, one they frequent often as audience members and performers (they both play guitar and sing really well), it wasn't too difficult to pull off.
The event started with a first look (including a private ring exchange!), then they walked down the aisle together up the steps to the stage. A hilarious friend officiated (it was more like a stand up routine than a ceremony, honestly), they had a nice make-out sesh, and it was official. The cocktail hour featured delish sausage while Kyle and Louisa played their college tradition game: STUMP. If you're unfamiliar with STUMP, you throw hammers and catch them and then try to knock a nail on a stump. The one who knocks the hammer all the way in wins. After cocktail hour, Kyle and Louisa did their first dance to a Nine Inch Nails and Carly Rae Jepsen remix. Then it was speech time, and the party ended with a CONCERT. Three of the couple's friend's bands kicked it off, and the couple closed out the night. First, they serenaded each other (with some head-banging) and then they sang together to end it all.
These two reminded our entire team that a wedding can look HOWEVER THE HELL YOU WANT. Seriously, stop reading wedding magazines right now. Stop. Are you on Pinterest? CLICK OUT NOW. It’s time to wake the hell up and look in the mirror with your partner and dream up something YOU. Something tells me, you might not find peonies looking in the mirror and that’s okay. :) Kyle and Louisa are in your corner and can tell you from experience, authenticity is a hell of a lot more fun.
