The vintage glam details of this emerald green wedding are just absolutely stunning! A romantic, garden ceremony, an emerald, gold, and white color palette, and lasercut table numbers are just a few favorites that Sarah Tew Photography captured beautifully. The lovely bride, Gina, is here with us today sharing about her wedding planning experience:
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Pinterest was a huge help during the planning process, I was able to visualize all my ideas and keep them in one place to easily show vendors. I also had a great support team – my mom and bridesmaids who helped with so many of the details.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
It is really important to first like their work/product, but for me it was even more important to connect with the person and like their personality. You need to be surrounded by people you are comfortable with and trust, especially as things get tense and stressful towards the big day. I felt at ease with the people I worked with which made the whole process a breeze.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
I love the mix of old and new, so there had to be vintage elements. I started with a few must have elements – lace dress, white lanterns, and honey (as the favors) and everything just developed from there.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
Favorite part was the first-look photos, getting ready that moring and so much going on I couldn’t wait to see my fiance, the moment he turned around there was a sense of calm again. Favorite thing – it’s hard to choose but I loved the way our ‘grooms cake’ made of Murray’s Cheese wheels came out and our polariod guest book – everyone had a blast taking candid instant photos.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Out of anyone attending your wedding, make sure its you and your husband who are having the most fun!…you deserve it! You put so much time and energy into planning the perfect day, so take a deep breathe and enjoy every second of it.
Oh I love Gina’s advice! It’s easy to get caught up in making sure that your guests have a great time, yet forget about having fun yourself. Keep her words in mind and make sure you have the most fun out of anyone at the wedding!
Gina and her husband Jamie included two of their favorite things- craft beer and honey- in their wedding as “escort beers” and favors. Are you planning on incorporating any of your favorite things into your own wedding? What will you be doing?
