Cassie and Brent’s intimate brewery wedding was full of sweet heart details and they focused many of their choices on highlighting the beauty and history of their city. They incorporated their city into the details by choosing a historic building to host their wedding and used flowers that were all locally grown and sourced by their floral designer Presh Floral.
We are definitely loving the beautiful floral heart wreath that created the main focal point of Brent and Cassie’s ceremony, and then doubled as a backdrop for the head table in their reception. The bright and vibrant colors of the day complimented the the space in such a fun way, and we love how Brittany Lee Photography was able to capture the sweet love that these two share.
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
I have been planning events professionally for the past eight years so I was able to draw on my personal experiences and those of my colleagues as well – one of my former colleagues was my day-of coordinator!
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
My husband and I continually said that we were trusting our gut. When we were researching or meeting potential vendors we were looking for people that felt like friends. This started even before I got involved and my husband was looking for a jeweler to make a custom engagement ring and happened to find one who loved and played the sport of rugby just like he does.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
We wanted our wedding to feature a lot of local details (local flowers, local beer, etc). We are both transplants to our city and many of our family and friends were visiting it for the first time so we wanted to show it off. We chose our venue for that location and named our tables after streets we lived on in the city.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
The whole day was wonderful and we were so happy to share it with our friends and families. I love having so many beautiful photos to look back on so photography and flowers were also key!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
At the very start of planning figure out what is most important to the two of you and always keep that in mind. If you get caught up in the details or the budget or drama with family and friends come back to where you started and what the day is really about. If it’s not in your top 1 or 3 or 5 most important things (whatever you determine that to be) it’s not worth stressing about, and if it is find a compromise or creative solution or drop something else that wasn’t as important to make it work. And of course enjoy!
As a professional event planner herself, it is clear that this bride was incredibly intentional with her choices that created the design of their day, and we just love the subtle hints of hearts that wrapped their way throughout the day. It’s hard not to let these bright colors and heart details get you thinking about celebrating Valentine’s Day with the one you love!
