A wedding day is truly perfect when a couple makes it their own, and today’s wedding is the perfect example of two people who bucked tradition and mad their big day unique. Romeo and Mylene were married in a Chicago, in an art-deco inspired Gatsby wedding that looks like it time-traveled straight from the 1920s.
Of course, no special day is complete without personal touches, and this one is full of them! Mylene’s dress and veil were hand-crocheted by her grandmother, and the flowers (from Cotsco!) were arranged by the friends and family of the couple. Even their invitations and escort cards were DIY by the best man. How’s that for a team effort?
From the sweet DIY art-deco details to the couple’s dapper 20’s style, this is one wedding you have to see for yourself. Read on to see more of this beautiful wedding captured by Deep End Imagery!
