Ahlia + Eric: Bright + Beachy

Who ever thought a football inspired wedding could be so chic! Meet Ahlia + Eric who had a Green Bay Packers inspired wedding that has me thinking a style guru must have designed the Packers logo – seriously! With the funky backdrops at their venue, the aptly named Post Card Inn, their big day is not only beautiful but full of A + E’s own bubbly personalities. I love all their special details and how they incorporated their own love story into the wedding design. Congratulations Ahlia + Eric!!!
