We could not be happier for that all American Rock n Roll couple and we were on the edge of our seats waiting for how Gwen was going to meld her rocker glam look with the easy country style that Blake has. Well it turned out great! Now do you want a real life "Sweet Escape" just like theirs? We do too and we have it for likely lot less!

These days a wedding is special but there's something about it all over the country that is becoming casual. It may be the fact that so many turned to intimate #microweddings during our covid era. What many thought would be a trend in early 2020 is not going away anytime soon. Gwen and Blake kept their ceremony intimate with close friends and family as are 73% of couples planning weddings right now according to a NY Times Article recently released.
You may have seen in our previous posts about throwing weddings and events / celebrations that having a #microwedding does not necessarily mean people are not pulling out all of the stops.
In fact things are getting even more posh with the smaller the weddings! They cut the guest count and now are having bigger floral arrangements for the ceremony, more stationary and unique (although) pricy favors. Live & In person musicians vs. a DJ. More unique entertainment. Colorful wedding gowns and more! Finally people are getting what planners have told their clients for years!
"You want that expensive centerpiece or be able to serve surf and turf, then start being cut throat about your guests invited".
Well we're definite the two that just said their vows didn't need to be "cut throat" about their guest count, but they did it any ways and they combined their two styles perfectly. We must say this rock, elegant casual, yet "pretty" wedding is something planners like "Kat Minks Design" has come accustomed to doing. Just look at these shots from a wedding Kat Minks Design/ Adore Productions LLC. actually won an ILEA award ( International Live Event Association) for compared to the very similar wedding of Gwen Stefani and Blake Sheltons splashed across news.
Rustic Glam just like we saw with Gwen and Blake! Groom in Jeans and Suit Jacket Bride in High Low Gown in front of a posh and unfinished setting. The perfect blending of two different styles. Her's glitzy his simple. Bride Nicole French, Groom Kyle Kraska. This bride may not have a custom Vera Wang or suit coat Like Gwen and Blake did but are looking every bit as fashion forward and edgy a celebrity couple.
5.5 foot Gold Candle Abras atop an altar of petals and candles. These can be found at www.katminks.com/decor as can most decor needs to execute these looks.
