Yesterday was a BIG, colorful day here on Every Last Detail, so I figured why not just keep it going?! (If you missed the special Valentine’s Day Dinner Date feature, be sure to go see it!) This beautiful, colorful, and modern wedding comes to us from ellyB Events, with photography by Climie and Co. Blue, pink, purple and green are just some of the colors used in this fabulously bright wedding…. if you’re having a dreary day, this will definitely put some pep in your step! :) The lovely bride Kia joining us to share some of her wedding insight as well…
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
While I had several people to thank for helping me through the process, my mother and my planner were a tremendous help. I’m very detailed oriented, so I was really wrapped on the small details that makes every wedding unique. It was nice to have someone else to correspond with the vendors (linens, florist, venue director). It’s difficult to do it all while maintaining your every day life. I recommend a planner for EVERY bride! A huge weight was lifted with some of the negotiating, details and she helped to create a solid vision. My mother was with me every step of the way, and it didn’t hurt that we have like taste. She helped me through the entire process. Surprisingly, my husband was pretty hands on as well. :)
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
Well, to be frank, I was looking for a planner who didn’t annoy the heck out of me! In other words I was looking for a personality type I would’nt clash with and who would not forget that our wedding day was ours. Eliana at Elly B Events certainly fit that mold. She was really cool and the wedding turned out to be phenomenal success.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
I loved it so much, it’s difficult to narrow down just one. I would say that I loved that my venue was in a public place that my husband and I can visit anytime we like. We even had tourists taking photos and watching the wedding! Everything was decorated beautifully with all the vibrant colors I asked for. The reception was an absolute blast, and people are still telling us that ours was the best wedding they had ever been too. I’m sure the full open bar with two yummy signatures didn’t hurt. :)
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Breathe. The day is super important, but the wedding will never go off perfectly. Stuff happens, and yes- even on your wedding day. For me, everything was perfectly timed and the wedding was on course to start on time. I was there. The groom was there. But the marriage license was left in the hotel room across the park, and the officiant wouldn’t start without it. A park director sprinted across the park to dig through a hotel room. This whole fiasco put us back by 15 minutes- which of course affects your cocktail hour. Like I said stuff happens, just breathe and enjoy your day. You will never live it again.
Wow, everything that Kia said I totally agree with. I love hearing a bride say that everyone needs to hire a planner- why would you want to handle the workload of an additional full time job?! ;) Thank you for sharing your wedding story with us Kia, and thank you to ellyB Events for doing such a fabulous job!
How do you all like this super colorful wedding? This proves that you don’t have to just two or three main colors for things to look beautiful! But tell me- out of all of the colors, which one do you like best? :)
