Home to Wedding: Michelle + Adam
There's not one couple that doesn't want their wedding to reflect who they are. If it's a cookie-cutter wedding, why bother? How to make it happen is a different matter entirely. Welcome to REVEL's Home to Wedding series. Your home already reflects who you are, why not use your favorite elements to inspire your wedding? If you are living separately, draw inspiration from both.
My husband Adam and I have shared our Clinton Hill, Brooklyn home (below) for three years. I’m artsy, love bright colors, and will purchase anything at a flea market before a big store. Adam is a musician, loves vintage maps, and prefers buying quality pieces new that will last a lifetime. Our apartment is a mixture of vintage finds, like the yellow lamp, and new pieces, like our leather dining chairs. Together, our styles mesh to create a creative, colorful space that we both love.
Here's what our wedding would look like today based on favorite elements from our home. Colorful, eclectic (not too matchy-matchy, please), and inspired by music (guitar-pick cupcakes? yes!), color, maps, and Brooklyn!
It's all shop-able. Click on any image for details on prices and sourcing. Photographs of Michelle and Adam's home by Jessika Creedon, and photograph of Michelle and Adam by Gina Zeidler.
