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

My mom and sister helped me the most throughout my wedding planning process and wedding day. I could not have done it without them! From helping scour flea markets with me to find mason jars and vintage pieces or writing out the place cards, they were instrumental in all of the DIY details of our day.

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

One of the things I looked for when picking my vendors was their responsiveness. We didn’t hire a wedding planner, so I had to juggle communications with multiple people on a daily basis. Knowing that I could rely on them to get back to me in a timely manner helped tremendously.

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

My inspiration for our wedding day stemmed from my love for all things vintage and shabby chic. I knew I wanted an outdoor wedding and when we found Oak Hill, I knew it was the perfect farm venue to pull my vision together. Our wedding was in May, so we went with very light spring colors of blush and light grey for a soft romantic feel. And while I had a lot of my own ideas, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t frequent Pinterest and Loverly to get more ideas!

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

My best piece of advice for other brides would be to be confident in your decisions/choices throughout the planning process. There are so many little things that you have to decide on that you have to be able to make a decision and move onto the next thing. You’ll drive yourself crazy if you second guess everything. Just go with your gut and trust that it will all come together :)

How gorgeous was that?! And I love how she knew her inspiration and what she wanted and went for it! Its great advice brides- find what you want and go for it. My favorite piece of advice from this bride? “You’ll drive yourself crazy if you second guess everything”. Find what speaks to you and make it your own!

What are you doing to find inspiration for your wedding day?

Until next time!
