I am so excited about today’s gorgeous pink and lavender wedding from North Carolina photographers Live View Studios! A classic, romantic style was the perfect option for Lea and Rupal’s multi-cultural wedding celebration. I am LOVING the fresh, bright colors that they used, and it helps that their happiness is absolutely contagious!
Insight from Lea and Rupal:
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Honestly, the easy access to multiple resources at our fingertips via the Internet was the most helpful, especially since we planned our Raleigh wedding from Texas.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
We wanted to work with professionals who share our creative natures and who respect a unique viewpoint. Due to the fact that we had an outdoor wedding, we wanted photographers who were experienced and highly capable of working with natural light. Live View Studios had an impressive gallery, were professional as well as creative specific to outdoors, hands on and kept up communication throughout the planning process and after the wedding.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
Both my husband and I greatly desired to honor both of our cultures that we grew up with. Celebrating out of doors was a primary factor as well, since we feel comfortable and spiritually inspired by nature.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
My favorite thing was our ceremony being unique to us, in that we designed it with our officiant, Kayelily Middleton. Especially because we included a baby blessing for our daughter who was in my belly (at 25 weeks)!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Enjoy the process instead of stressing over it. The only way to accomplish this is to break down the planning into small chunks to check off instead of trying to think of all the pieces at once. Remember that your wedding is a celebration of the love you and your fiancé share, so include both of your personalities and backgrounds.
Oh I love their advice to break down planning into small chunks- this definitely helps the stress level! And I think it’s perfect that Lea and Rupal incorporated both of their cultural backgrounds into their wedding… what better way to ensure that your wedding is unique than to infuse yourselves into it?!
Are any of you planning on incorporating your own culture into your wedding? What will you be doing?
