Purple, love! We first met Felicia + Bart when we shared their engagement photos a few months back and we immediately fell in love with their beautiful smiles and love story!
The couple’s urban wedding at Pazzos took place on July 17 of last year. Their photographer Miss Motley Photography says, “Their marital union is a result of dreams, fate and the childhood wishes of a three year old girl.”
Growing up Felicia’s mom always teased her daughter about her preschool friend, Bart. Everyday after preschool, Felicia would come home and tell her that she was going to marry him and they were going to have 13 children!
Miss Motley Photography says, “Felicia often thought her mother made the story up because after all, how could a three year old already be planning a family?”
Fast forward 15 years to a few weeks before Felicia is set to head off to college. At her friend’s party, Felicia was introduced to a man named Bart. Shortly after, it all clicked. “I went to preschool with a guy named Bart,” Felicia said. It was the same Bart from preschool
A few months later, the two reconnected while Bart was in Chicago during Thanksgiving break and as they say, the rest is history!
From the photographer ~ “The decor for this spectacular wedding is just as unique as this couple’s story. The blue and purple color scheme was inspired by Felicia’s favorite flower, orchids, and a navy blue James Bond tuxedo with a black lapel. Felicia loved the idea of having gold as the accent color since it was less common then silver. Consequently, gold accents ended up being much harder to find which lead to a few DIY projects which included: table numbers, gift card box, menus, escort cards, etc. In the end, these colors came together in a tasteful and elegant way.”
See their lovely wedding ~
