Oh my gorgeousness do I have a fabulous wedding to share with you all today! Not only is this wedding full of gorgeous shades of pale pink and vintage-style DIY details, but the photography by Josh McCullock is absolutely phenomenal. Like it-will-take-your-breath-away-and-make-your-day phenomenal. Of course it helps that the bride, Aubrey, is also a photographer, so she certainly knew all about details! She’s sharing some great wedding planning insight with us today, so be sure to take note! :)

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

My mom an sister were the ones who mainly helped me throughout the whole process. On the wedding day, a few of my mom’s closest friends gave up their days to set up and take down the entire wedding. And the night before the wedding, my friend, Anna, stayed up with me till 2am to help me with last minute details. That meant the world to me.

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

Since I’m a photographer, it was extremely important that our wedding was documented by a great photographer (both professional and artistic). You get what you pay for, and even though we had a fairly tight budget, I searched for vendors that we could afford, but I wasn’t afraid to invest in those who were professional and great at what they do.

Did any of your vendors do anything special for you before, on, or after your wedding day that you would like to share?

Josh, our photographer, sent us presents after we booked with him. My present was a really cute t-shirt that I wear all the time! I love it!

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

A lot of things! I loved how the decor came together so elegantly. I had the best time dancing the night away with our friends. Overall, I was just extremely thankful to be surrounded by the people we love.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Don’t stress over every little detail and don’t expect everything to be perfect. Your guests will never know if the cake didn’t turn out exactly how you wanted, or if your hair piece broke. Just take everything in stride and enjoy the day.

Okay, how adorable are Aubrey and her husband?! Thank you so much for sharing your wedding insight with us Aubrey!

I must say- I am SO very thankful and proud to say that Josh McCullock Photography is a member of Every Last Vendor! Amazing images, right?! I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of his amazing work in the future! And how about all of those awesome details? Milk glass, books, frames… just the right amount of vintage and elegance, don’t you think? Did you catch the vintage window that doubled as a sort of program, displaying the bridal party’s names? Or the quilt for guests to sign (made by Aubrey’s aunt)? So many wonderful details… which one is your favorite? You know I’m a sucker for amazing bouquets, so those beauties are my choice! :)

    This wedding is absolutely STUNNING! I’m in love with those bridesmaids dresses!

  2. Wendy {Weswen Design}

    Wow, stunning photos! I’m so impressed with all the tiny details, and think it’s super fab that they had rice crispy treats!

  3. Christie O. {Hindsight Bride}

    I just want to repeat this bride’s advice in case you missed it: “I wasn’t afraid to invest in those who were professional and great at what they do.” If I had to give only one piece of Hindsight Advice for the rest of my life, this would be it!

  4. Megan [Glamour and Grace]

    Ok, so you know I am in love with this wedding! But how bizarre is it that two of her bridesmaids wore the exact dresses my sister and I wore in the wedding i was in this weekend! So funny!! They must be wedding twins!

  5. Katie @ Lovebird Productions

    She is such a pretty and confident bride! Her advice is good and very true! I have to agree with everyone else, the rice crispy treats are too fun!

  6. Mikkel

    So gorgeous, I love it! Great photos, Josh. And congratulations to the bride and groom!

    Any idea where the dress came from? I’m in love!

  9. Victoria

    I too love the dress! Where is it from?

    • Lauren Grove

      I spoke with the bride and she actually bought the dress from a consignment store and doesn’t know who the designer was- sorry girls! :(

  10. Lauren

    Does anyone know what type of flowers are with the roses?

    • Lauren Grove

      Lauren, it looks like they might be wax flowers. Not positive, but that could be it!

  11. Rhiannon

    What a darling wedding! Such a stunning bride too :) And yes that’s white wax flower in with the roses by the cakes. Good eye, Lauren!

  12. Keri @ East Coast bride

    Just beautiful! Every detail just looks so perfect and effortless…
