I send out a wedding questionnaire to my couples so that I can get to know them and what their plans are for the wedding. Nancy wrote her theme would be vintage lace and antique silver with slight hints of pink. She said the surroundings were so beautiful out at Wild Heron that she didn’t want to distract from that. With that one sentence I knew her wedding would be my dream.
I show up and find the set up for the ceremony around a gazebo. Each chair had a mixture of lace and pale ribbons flowing down the back. At the reception site near the boat house there were several tables scattered around the grounds with very simple and elegant center pieces…baby’s breath and an antique key. I found the flowers and saw several different tussy mussies for grandmothers and mothers. I debated on having these for my own wedding simple because of the awesome tussy mussy holder which is usually and antiqued silver. They were gorgeous. All around the site where sprinkles of lace, baby’s breath, antique keys and little hints of pink. Gorgeous. Then I saw Nancy’s amazing dress. So light and lacey. A perfect fit for the day. She had every detailed planned and everything flowed so well.
While Nancy was finishing up her beauty time I met Chris who was slightly anxious but not because he was getting married more because he was ready to see his bride. It was a good thing they opted for the First Look. I found a spot that was a little out of the way where they could see each other for the first time. It is so wonderful to witness first looks and see the bride and groom’s nerves become replaced with joy.
Thanks Nancy and Chris for being so wonderful. The details were so wonderful but most importantly I really enjoyed watching you two get married.
The little ring bearers were so adorable. The youngest just decided to sprint down the aisle to mommy and daddy.
The flower girls and mini-gentlemen escorts that held their flower baskets as they sprinkled petals.
Nancy and Chris didn’t want tradition. That is why the opted for the first look. She didn’t have something new, something borrowed and something blue. The flowers were hung at different heights. They also decided to face the crowd for their ceremony. I loved this last detail as it made my job super easy. Not to mention they got to see all of their guests as they said their I Do’s…brilliant. Look at her killer dress. So gorgeous.
