I worked with Paige and her mom Becky for over a year. By the end of this wedding I felt the way only these people could make me feel- like I was a part of their family. Seriously, I’ll be at Christmas next year guys ;-) Paige knew exactly what she wanted as a bride so it was really easy for me to execute just that. Here’s her mood board from way back when. She is the epitome of a classic and timeless bride.
Sometimes a lot of things change from mood board to fruition (I talked about this a bit last week), but looking back we did just about everything you see on that mood board…or we had the intention to. Unfortunately, the rain forecast was at 30% that day and setting up on the beautiful lawn of Royal Oaks Country Club was not a risk Paige was willing to take, so we lost a little bit of our beautiful backdrop in exchange for guest comfort and that’s always a good choice to make.
Paige’s aunt Lea did the flowers and did an amazing job. Everyone was raving about them all night- they were simply stunning!
I am in love with this photo- it kind of sums up why you have bridesmaids! At my wedding the room to get ready in was rather small so I opted to have my girls get ready elsewhere and that’s a decision I still regret, how fun does this look?
Paige and Kevin didn’t want to do a first look, but they did want to have a moment to say hi to each other before everything got started that day.
I love this idea! It’s a great way to calm your nerves on the wedding day and also makes for adorable photos like these.
Paige and I both agreed we didn’t want the wedding to be too theme-y, but we did several subtle nods to her and Kevin’s love for music (Kevin’s actually in a band) like the guest book guitar and records, instead of table numbers each table was a song title, and then to send them off at the end of the night guests threw these customized guitar picks into the air. Adorable no?
And a little video action, which is just that much more magical than the photos :)
