This stunning peach and navy Maine wedding that I have for you all today comes to us from Robin Nathan Photography, and you are just going to LOVE it! Drawing inspiration from their home states of Georgia and Maine, Jessica and Jonathan created a wedding centered around an underlying theme of “Georgia peach” and “Maine blueberries”. From blueberry lemonade and peach tea, to peach and blueberry balsamic vinegars as wedding favors, this couple infused their theme into all they could- and did it quite beautifully I might add! Jessica is here with us today to share more about their wedding details and their wedding planning…

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

I am a wedding coordinator by profession, so after seeing a wedding every weekend May-October for the past three years I kinda had an idea of the things I wanted and what things I didn’t want to waste time on. So my knowledge of a typical wedding helped a lot during planning. The day of though, the best help was hands down from the coordinators at French’s Point (where everything was held). They made sure that everything I had worked so hard to plan was executed to perfection. I didn’t have to worry about anything; they were just on it. I’m a true believer that you don’t have to have a wedding planner but you must have a wedding coordinator. Without one there’s just no way I could have enjoyed the day like I did.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

Most of my vendors I had know through work, so I was lucky in the sense that I didn’t have to do too much searching. Every one of my vendors were people that I would completely trust to preform beautifully without much (or any) direction from me, which was super important to me since I didn’t have much time to spend hand-holding in the middle of wedding season; I had to be focused on my brides, not on worrying about my own wedding. I knew I could tell them what I wanted in January and come July it would be perfect (or even better).

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

When we started looking at wedding colors we were drawn to blue and coral and decided to mute them a bit. We called the colors Blueberry Navy and Peach and then they started to remind us of our home states; Jonathan is from Maine (Maine blueberries) and I am from Georgia (peaches). We didn’t want our wedding to have too much of a theme but once we had that connection the details just started flowing; magnolia branches above the alter, signature drinks (Maine blueberry Manhattan and Georgia peach Bellini), blueberry and peach inspired hors d’oeuvres, fresh blueberries and peaches in the champagne toast and the wedding cake (one of them), blueberry & peach balsamic vinegar favors, etc. It was fun coming up with personal touches that were so personal to us.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

How it felt. I tend toward a type a personality (to put it lightly) and I was super worried that I would be stressed, worried, and/or planning on my wedding day. I vowed to myself that I would try not to be and I wasn’t! I know that my wonderful team of vendors helped make that happen but I was also just too darn excited to worry. I couldn’t stop bouncing around with excitement. I have truly never been so happy in all my life and that’s an emotion that you can’t replicate.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Planning a wedding is stressful enough there’s no need to make it worse by worrying if your cake is going to show up on time. Choose vendors you trust to make your day perfect, tell them what you want and let them do their job. That way you can make sure you don’t lose focus on what your wedding is really about; you and your fiance’s love and commitment to each other. Second best piece of advice: wear flats or dance barefoot! (no one will know under that long dress and you’ll have a lot more fun)

Love Jessica’s advice and all of her insight! What a great idea to draw inspiration from their home states. You really can get inspiration from just about anything!

So how about you- where are you getting your inspiration for your own wedding? And how much do you love the peach and navy together?!
