Teal and Blush Historic Home Wedding in South Carolina

Posted by Caitlin on Aug 02, 2013

Ally & Jeff

May 24

Charleston, South Carolina  

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

My parents met and were married in Charleston in the early 70’s.  We moved around a lot as a family for my Dad’s work, but Charleston has always been a priority vacation spot for my family.  I saw the William Aiken House years ago and always knew that’s where I would want to get married.  It has a beautiful, Southern charm about it that just screams “Charleston!”

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

First and foremost would be the DELICIOUS food.  Our guests are still raving about it. I really loved the décor in the house.  It was simple and perfect, and I felt it really showcased the beauty of the house itself. We loved how the outdoor area was set up with the tent and dance floor.  The hanging lanterns on the inside of the tent gave such an elegant touch and gorgeous ambiance for the whole evening.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about. 

My cousin and maid of honor had to undergo emergency open heart surgery a week before our wedding and was unable to attend because of this.  When I put my dress on the day of the wedding, there was a navy blue heart attached to the inside of my dress.  My mother then told me that my cousin asked the dress designer to attach this heart-shaped piece of my grandfather’s tie to the inside of my dress.  My grandfather passed away last November, and I was very close with him.  It was difficult planning our wedding knowing that he would not be there to watch me get married or to meet my husband.  It was such a sweet, special moment that really made me feel like he was with me that day!

Blush Summer Farm Wedding in North Carolina

Posted by Caitlin on Jul 11, 2013

Brittney & Arron

June 8

Monroe, North Carolina

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We knew we wanted a venue that was outdoors, had a country or rustic feel, and had water somewhere nearby.  So, when we discovered Morning Glory Farm online and went to go tour it, we fell in love right away. It had everything we were looking for.  It was outdoors, it had the country feel, and the pond behind the ceremony site just topped it off. The biggest thing that sold us most was the owner, Nan.  She welcomes you in, and you atomically feel like you’ve known her your entire life.  Not only was the farm matchless, but also Nan’s sweet and bubbly personality helped to reassure we had found the perfect spot to say, ‘I do.”

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Our cross and kneeling bench from the ceremony.  The cross symbol in its self was very meaningful to us within our faith in Jesus Christ, and we wanted to definitely let it be present throughout the ceremony.  The cross was made by our coordinator and her family, and Aaron and my brother-in-law made the kneeling bench for communion, which made it even more special. 
 
2. Our wedding invitations were handmade. We designed them ourselves, had them printed professionally, and then decorated all of them with doilies and lace as a special personal touch.  I incorporated the doilies throughout the entire wedding by using them with the invitations, the programs, and as place settings at the reception.  
 
3. Southern style food is our all time favorite.  We knew we wanted BBQ, chicken, and southern fixings to serve to our guests.  We chose Jim ‘N’Nicks BBQ out of Concord and could not have been more pleased with the outcome.  The food was amazing, and we have heard nothing short of great things about our dinner choice and caterer.  

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about. 

When it was time to get on the carriage and go see my groom.  As I started walking down the aisle, it became true that everything else doesn’t matter any more.  I was so excited to see him and for him to see me.  I knew at that moment, it was really happening, and we were fixing to be married, fixing to spend the rest of our lives as one.  It was a special moment and something I hope I never forget.

Beautiful Blush and Coral Barn Wedding in California

Posted by Caitlin on Mar 29, 2013

Ashley & Scott

August 4

Nipomo, California 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The beauty, the originality and the character of the Dana-Powers barn venue made me fall in love with it. Although is was just a “barn,” it felt like the most gorgeous and unique place to have a wedding. The surrounding hills were breathtaking and the furnishings and details that stood throughout the barn were something I couldn’t live without. No other venue we looked at could compare. All our guests didn’t know what to expect, and when they arrived that day, they were all blown away by the beauty.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

 1. Walking down the aisle with my dad, being filled with so much joy and excitement, seeing Scott for the first time that day. Although I thought I’d be full of emotions, I was just so happy.

2. Seeing the flowers come together. I was overly pleased with what my florist did. They were all so beautiful throughout the entire wedding venue.

3. Enjoying all my guests and watching them all have a good time. Being with everyone and celebrating for one night made Scott and I truly happy.

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about.

Exchanging vows will forever be the most sentimental and memorable part of my wedding day. Listening to the words of our pastor and looking into Scott’s eyes made me the happiest girl. And I’m so glad all our family and friends were there to share it with. Our pastor said some very touching words to our parents on our behalf, and it was another very special part of the ceremony.

Pretty in Blush Vineyard Wedding in California

Posted by Caitlin on Jan 30, 2013

Dara & Tony

October 27

Santa Rosa, California

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

It was the venue itself. When we first got engaged, we looked at over 15 wineries, and they all looked the same to me. I felt like the guy from the movie “Sideways” screaming about Merlot, but I was swearing off looking at another row of grape leaves. Then we walked into DeLoach. Yes, there were grape leaves but also so much more. 

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

First, our flowers. Our florist, Olivia, transformed DeLoach into a fairytale. I sent her a few pictures of the look we were going for and really just let her run with it. She nailed it, above and beyond. I cannot say enough about her and Papillion Floral. They were professional and so fun to work with! Second, my hair. I just loved my hair, it was perfect. If I could have Jolene at The Loft salon do my hair like that every day I would. Lastly, our food.  Food is very important to our family, and this was an area where we really wanted to seek out the best. Not only did the food look gorgeous, it tasted even better. 

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about.

Towards the end of dinner, after speeches were finished, the sun had set and candles were lit, my husband and I looked at each other and then looked out at both of our families and friends, eating, drinking and laughing. Everyone we loved was in the same place, smiling under the same twinkling lights for us.

Sarah & Kalin 

June 9

Franklin, Tennessee 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride: 

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The venue was so beautiful, picturesque and quaint. Also, CJ’s allowed us to have a wedding coordinator, who could organize things with us, considering we were from out- of-state.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Flowers

2. Gazebo

3. Chandeliers

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding day that you can’t stop thinking about. 

Our favorite moment was under the gazebo when we, along with our preacher, bowed together while Kalin said a prayer asking for God’s blessing. It was so beautifully intimate, and we felt as though we were the only three people there.
