ROB + JAY
A styled photo shoot, real life couple and a team of multi talented midwest vendors joined forces to document some good old fashioned love. Gussied was thrilled to supply the music! The "Boys in the Bayou" themed shoot was also featured on Wedding Chicks and Equally Wed. We were certainly happy to witness the love between these two and work with such creative vendors! Congrats to Rob and Jay on your ever after!

Have you ever wanted to crash a wedding? The NotWedding is the perfect opportunity! In fact, it's encouraged! A big fat fake wedding complete with real couple, ceremony and reception is where area vendors come together to show engaged couples the latest trends and wedding services. We thought it was a genius idea and were super excited to be part of it. In case you missed out, here's a recap via the lovely folks at Ruffled Wedding Blog.
Here are some of our personal favorites too!
Oh yea... and this band!
