Kacey and Tim’s inspiration for their lovely Alabama wedding was soft, classic romance, and j.woodbery photography captured it beautifully! A lovely lavender color palette added the perfect amount of romance to the day, and Kacey is here with us today to tell us all about it…
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
I relied heavily on the advice of my vendors throughout the planning process. Everyone was so nice and offered to help in every way possible. I would ask them tons of questions, and they were always happy to advise me on the best choice. The day of the wedding I had the best bridesmaid team surrounding me. They were there for everything ranging from fixing my hair when I needed it, to hold my dress when I peed. Not to mention, I had my dad and brother running around town picking things up that I forgot to get, or running a carpool from the hotel to my parents’ house. I owe everyone big time for making my day so amazing.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
I wanted to work with people who were easy going, but reliable. I wanted to be able to contact them with questions or concerns and know that they would get back to me as soon as possible. They were all extremely communicative and willing to answer any and all questions, even if I was reaching out late at night:) It turns out, most vendors are working late nights too!
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
The inspiration was simple-I wanted my wedding to be a big party for all of my guests. I didn’t want to bombard them with tons of flowers, or decorations. I wanted to provide them with a beautiful space to enjoy one another, since most were traveling from out of town. The inspiration for the design was soft, romantic and classic. I’m a huge fan of classic movies, so I wanted to touch on that but also provide a modern twist on things.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
This is a tough question. I honestly enjoyed every single part of my wedding. Being able to spend time with my bridesmaids before the wedding was so fun. I don’t get to see those girls a lot, so it was wonderful being able to spend quality time with all of them in the same room. Dancing with my dad was another favorite. He isn’t an emotional man, but I knew exactly how he felt based on the song he chose. We danced to “I Loved Her First” by Heartland. Not to mention, every picture that was taken of us dancing, he is smiling:) The reception was my all time favorite. I was actually able to hang out with all my family and friends, and just dance around. That was the best. Of course you can’t go wrong when you book a Motown band:) Always a good choice.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Don’t take everything too serious. It’s important to remember that the most important thing about your wedding day is marrying your best friend. Everything else, the weather, the reception, the church, will all work out. You have so many people around that are will to help make sure your day is fabulous.
I love the lavender color palette- the bridesmaid dresses are beautiful!
So tell me- what is your favorite color palette for a romantic wedding?
