You might recognize this bride from ‘The Real World : Brooklyn, or as the co-host for TLC’s ‘Love At First Swipe’. Devyn Simone married her soulmate, Adam Lock, this June in her hometown, Kansas City. Their historic rooftop wedding was nothing short of magnificent. This couple and their team behind the scenes did not miss a single detail! We love the sentiment and intention behind every intricate element, including, the variation of purples sprinkled throughout their day. Scroll on to read all about the wedding day details and the variety of entertainment they planned for their guests.
The bride shares the inspiration behind the wedding details,
“The vibe we were going for was ‘city rooftop garden party’. Part urban, part luxe, we wanted to highlight the juxtaposition between soft florals and industrial steel beams with brick. Those elements appear to be so opposite and yet, they can work well together when done with intention. I think that sort of describes the blending of our style as a couple.
We wanted the day to feel authentic to us and we wanted to create a unique experience. We didn’t want it to feel too predictable, so we incorporated hidden elements, games, and surprises for guests to discover. That way, they are able to feel like an active part of the day and not just a spectator. We had a live painter who allowed guests to paint a portion of the piece themselves, so the artwork is not only a snapshot of the day, but it’s made by those we love. We had trivia questions on our napkins, and cookies made in the image of our dog, Brooklyn, as well as Adam’s pants (a nod to the odd pants he wore on our first date).”
Details about the reception entertainment,
“We had a live band and DJ who brought the party to life. I actually found the lead vocalist, Shelby Winfrey, on instagram and was blown away. I messaged her and she helped put the pieces in place. The band, Lost Wax started with just a lovely duo including Shelby as the vocalist singing acoustic covers during the ceremony. They learned Snoh Alegra’s – Find Someone Like You, specifically for us. Between the band and the DJ, we had guests on the dance floor all night.
Fun fact, we had 3 professional dancers on the dance floor including one who was a backup dancer for Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.”
The bride & grooms outfit details,
“We both had multiple looks. Adam had a second look – a bespoke dinner jacket made in deep purple velvet. The purple velvet is homage to the purple velvet tux his dad wore when he married Adam’s mom. Adam wore the exact velvet bow tie his dad wore on his wedding day over 40 years ago and swapped out his all white Jordans, that he wore during the ceremony, for white and purple Jordans to compliment this second look. Adam had the lining of the jacket made from two autographed jerseys of his two all time favorite hall of fame Phoenix Suns Players, Steve Nash and Charles Barkley. A nod to his love of basketball.
For the welcome dinner, I wore a modern two piece all white number from Australian designer, KYHA, another nod to Adam’s heritage. I complimented the look with delicate white butterfly heels from, Aquazzura. For the reception, I wanted to dazzle Adam – literally. I chose a beautiful hand beaded gown with a structured bodice, sexy silhouette, and elegant train.. In person, the way the beads dance under the light is just mesmerizing. I really love their KYHA’s fresh take on modern silhouettes. I’d wear their dresses every day if I could.”
