FROM THE COUPLE:

CREATIVE ASPECT

At heart I am a romantic and I enjoy the touch of beauty in nature.  We included some creative and personal aspects like having an outdoor ceremony under the canopy of trees and reflected fairytale like romance by having the violinist and cellist play fairytale songs.  We also placed signs with fairy tale quotes, like the aisle entrance sign that said “This is where our story begins” and another said “Happily ever after starts here”.  We also made a little nest to hold our rings, a large frame with flowers for our photo booth, and a pallet wall to be the backdrop of our guest sign-in table and to display our handmade wood slice favor magnets and seating display made with different frames.

FAVORITE DETAIL

That is such a difficult question!  It’s hard to pick! But I would say that my favorite detail was our sweetheart table that had a beautiful brick fireplace, wood mantel and wood built-in shelves as a backdrop.  I really loved its overflowing blush tablecloth and how it was draped with salal and plumosa garlands that were adorned with blush garden roses and our initial in the front.  I also loved the light up heart we placed on the mantel!

OUR THEME

Our theme was Garden Romance.  Our wedding colors were soft neutrals accented by blush, rose gold and navy.  The floral accents were deep hunter green garlands and greenery with pink and white roses.  In our DIY projects we stained all of the wood in red mahogany for elegance.

BRIDE’S ADVICE

When I first started planning the details of my wedding there were so many themes and ideas that overwhelmed me.  I then realized that I wanted my wedding to represent who we are and our beautiful love for each other and that the minute guests arrive their hearts feel the warmth of our love.  My advice to other brides is to follow your heart when it comes to the “theme” of your wedding because trending themes come and go but the memory of your wedding will remain and you want it to represent who you are as a couple.  Also, don’t let the wedding planning put a stress on your relationship, remember the wedding is one day but your marriage is a lifetime!
