Happy Friday everyone! I don’t know about you, but this week went by ridiculously fast! But fast week or not, the posts must go on! ;) Today I have an elegant orange and blue wedding for you all from Kimberly Photography! If you’re a Florida person, you may notice that orange and blue are the colors of the Florida Gators. I love that for this wedding, the colors were only used to infuse the Gators into the wedding a little bit, and then the rest was inspired completely by the Florida orange groves! The bride, Amy, has joined us today to share some of her wedding planning insight too, so enjoy!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
I would have to say my mom and my matron of honor helped me out the most before and during my wedding. I could also say that my husband made a couple phone calls, when I was started to go a little nutty right before the wedding :)
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
I didn’t really have any pre-req when deciding who to work with for the wedding. However, I def needed people who understood and were able to portray my “orange grove” wedding theme.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
I wanted the old school Florida vibe to stick out, not the usual beach theme. I truly loved everything about my wedding so it’s difficult to just pick one. I would have to say when I finally arrived at the church and walked down the aisle, I felt an overwhelming feeling of calm. I loved when we were both able to finally exchange vows. I also really loved the old wedding photos of both, David and I’s family members at the reception.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
The best piece of advice I could give is to never forget that, you and your husband are taking vows to share the rest of your lives together and make sure you take in the moment. All the other stuff us just a big party(which is great) however don’t lose sight of what your wedding day is really about because it goes by so fast!!
Thank you so much for sharing with us Amy, and thank you to Kimberly Photography for capturing this orange grove themed wedding so wonderfully!
I loooove the idea of an orange grove theme for a wedding! The mini orange tree centerpieces are pretty awesome, don’t you think?! What do you think? Are any of you having your wedding theme/style include a “nod” to your state or hometown?
