I am so excited to share this elegant purple and orange wedding with you all today! This also happens to be the wedding of one of my friends from college (and my sorority “little sister”), Natalie, and she did such an amazing job designing and planning! The shades of purple and orange that Natalie chose are gorgeous- and totally not what you would expect! Combine that with absolutely gorgeous photography by Brooke Images, and you all are in for a treat!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
So many, but our families were so generously instrumental in funding the wedding. My Maid of Honor and our family friend, Sallie, were truly the best helpers throughout the planning, on the big day and even following the wedding!
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
James and I had a unique perspective on planning our wedding because we are both in the industry. We chose vendors who we have relationships with and knew we could trust with our details.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
The season, Autumn, and each other.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
That it was truly “ours”. We planned “every last detail” and were so fortunate to share it with the people in this world who have loved and supported us up until the day we met and beyond!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
I was very fortunate to have a fiancé in the industry and who enjoyed being involved in planning the wedding with me. But whether your fiancé is or isn’t this way, before you begin planning make another promise to each other – that during the planning process when either of you gets particularly overwhelmed, that you’ll both agree to communicate that feeling and step away from the details and pick it up again later. This truly helped keep us sane and actually ENJOY planning and preparing together.
I knew Natalie would have some great advice to share with you all! I love her recommendation to step away from something and pick it back up later if something is frustrating you- I know how that is!
I really love the pale shade of purple and bright orange that Natalie and James chose! I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it! And those centerpieces- so unique and absolutely gorgeous! So tell me friends, what’s your favorite part of my friend Natalie’s wedding? :)
