Oh, Omaha - part 2

Now that you've seen a taste of our trip to Omaha, it's time to show you the main event - the wedding!

Caleb and Kelly had a vintage/Irish theme going on that used frames to tie everything together.

The theme started with the engagement shoot. I think this is a super creative idea!

... and continued on the "save the date" cards (actually magnets with this picture and wedding info).

The wedding was held in a local art museum, which carried the theme along very well with all the framed art. We were even allowed to stroll through the galleries during the cocktail hour, and the bride and groom were married in front of this awesome art:

The blown glass was beautiful in the light.

I thought this quote was just right.

The Bride's flowers picked up the Irish side of the theme with the shamrock pin my mom gave to Kelly. My brother wore cuff links and a tie tack with a Celtic knot design.

We took lots of family photos after the ceremony!

The reception area was in a huge indoor courtyard, with art galleries on each side. 

The tables were decorated with woven ribbons in shades of green and frames around candles or flowers.

I'm sure my brother picked out the groom's cake himself! I guess it sort of goes with the vintage theme!

The rest of the cake table stays true to the vintage/Irish/Frame vibe. And the cake was super good!

We spent the rest of the night dancing and taking silly photos in the frame photo booth Kelly stocked with crazy props.

We love fun, nontraditional weddings in our family: Brad and I had our garden party reception in an elementary school with sod on the buffet table and krispy kremes for a cake, and Caleb and Kelly had a wedding in an art museum and a Huskers themed rehearsal dinner. Since we've set the awesome bar pretty high, Hannah and Jacob, you better come up with something crazy and cool when it's your turn!

What's the most unique wedding idea you've encountered?

So fun! I love creative weddings too. We had a few interesting touches at ours (photo place cards of Dan wearing a t-shirt tuxedo and me in a veil). One of our favorite weddings served brinner at night because "you eat breakfast when you start something new." It was such a cute concept!

Everything looks lovely! What fun. Obviously your wedding was a blast. The other that always sticks in my mind is when our friends had a mexican themed reception with chips and salsa as the table center pieces and a fajita, taco and burrito bar where we were served our main course. Brilliant, cute and delish.
