Kelley, Hair Stylist & Matt, Entomologist

One sentence sum-up of the wedding vibe: Our wedding was a handcrafted, highly-personalized, casual, giggly, and sexy celebration of our love for each other and our love for our friends and family.
Soundtrack for listening: “La Vie En Rose” by Louis Armstrong
Other cool stuff we should know about
We did almost everything ourselves. Kelley folded fifteen hundred paper cranes; Matt made wall backdrops out of old romance novels. Matt made our own desserts, wedding cake, and bridal bouquet; Kelley made the bridesmaid’s bouquets, and spent forty-plus hours gluing thousands of tiny crystals onto her shoes. We had some of Matt’s students work as videographers and DJs. We ended the night with a trip to our favorite strip club in SF, because, when else can you go to a strip club wearing a wedding dress??
Favorite thing about the wedding
The vows that we wrote ourselves and shared with each other and building the ceremony together from scratch.
