Hi there everyone! This classic white wedding by Kristy Dickerson Photography today is just beautiful! It’s elegant and clean, and it was all put together with such care. I am so excited to share it with all of you!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
My mom and her amazing organizational skills really helped me during the whole process. My mom was ready immediately with a 3-inch binder that went with us to meet all of our vendors. This really helped us to be able to flip through and begin to see the big picture of how our wedding was coming together. My mom, my mother-in-law, dad, and sister also really helped keep me grounded through the whole wedding planning process. With them and my now hubby, I never forgot what the whole thing was all about- our love and a big party to celebrate!
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
The most important thing for me was finding vendors I felt comfortable around. All of my vendors made me feel very at ease during the entire process.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
Decor and style wise, I have always been a pretty simple person. I wanted a wedding that brought a simple elegance. I have never really been an “over-the-top” person, so I wanted my wedding to stay on the simple side. I LOVE how everything turned out. It was perfect!
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
This is so cheesy of me… I loved seeing all of our friends and family. Most of our families live out of town, and it was great to have everyone in one place for such an exciting event. And, I loved saying our vows. Brad and I had been long distance for nearly 4 years, and the wedding meant that we would finally be together!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
This is advice that my sister-in-law gave us the day before the wedding. At a few points during the ceremony, take your new husband to the side, and take a mental picture of what is happening. Everything flew by so quickly, and this gave us some opportunities to soak it all in! Also, after the wedding or honeymoon, make a list of everything you remember from that weekend/night. In 20 years from now, I want to be able to tell my kids about how I fell on the dance floor and what our friends said during the toasts. That is the kind of thing we will never remember if we don’t write it down!
I recently coordinated a Jewish wedding, my first one, and I just loved all of the traditions that they had. Everything about their wedding seems so meaningful, and you can see in the pictures how sweet it all is! I really think that her dream of a simple, elegant wedding is exactly what she got!
