From the bride, Danielle:
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
My fiance and now husband was my biggest supporter and the most amazing help in the entire planning process. From cutting the burlap table runners, to helping me drink and soak wine bottles to remove the labels, he played such an important role throughout in the entire process. It was very important to me that he was involved. It wasn’t my day it was our day. He constantly reminded me everyday not to stress and have fun.
My father was the best go to person throughout the wedding process. If I ever came to a problem with a vendor returning my calls, emails ect. or feeling a bit like a bridezilla he found a way to help with every situation. He truly was the best support system Ryan and I could of asked for.
Our wedding day was executed perfectly. Kimberly Roberts (LVL events) was our Day of Wedding Coordinator. She was professional and we put our trust in her hands. After the wedding, I had numerous complements on the activities and how smoothly there were transitioned. Big thank you to her for keeping everything on schedule and ensuring all the people were where they needed to be.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
Picking out vendors and hiring them was so much fun! It was such a relief and exciting to scratch each vendor off the list during the planning process. It made the big day feel that much closer. We decided to ask our family and friends for recommendations. After we established a list of recommendations for each vendor, we then met up with them. We called them and even had a few skype conversations. We also read tons of yelp reviews on past weddings our vendors were involved in to make sure we were picking the absolute best person or group. It was important to us to like the person and get excited about their services. We made a list of questions for each vendor prior to meeting them. This helped us to remember to ask important questions …and we realized that even the smallest questions or detail was important.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
We wanted to bring a bit of vintage country into our big day. Together our favorite color is green. So we absolutely knew Green was going to be our color. We decided on a sea foam green dresses for the Bridesmaids…they looked amazing! Going with the theme the groomsmen and ushers wore grey suites. And they couldn’t of looked anymore handsome. We along with family and close friends started to collect wine bottles. They were the main focus on our tables and really tied the vintage theme together. My florist Bella Hicks (Twig and Petals) did such an amazing job putting my vision of flowers to reality with the wine bottles.
Together we hunted garage sales, antique shops and our families homes for perfect vintage pieces to complete our vision. We collected old doors, windows, shutters … and dressed up the ceremony and reception with burlap, candles and little odds and end antiques.
What is your best piece(s) of advice for other brides?
Come to terms that something may happen in your wedding…that may not go as planned. Let it go and Roll with it. and Most importantly….HAVE FUN ..you’re planning your wedding day!
Oh yes, I say that all the time- not everything goes as planned! It’s so important to remember!
I love how Danielle and her family collected wine bottles for her centerpieces! Are any of you doing something like that?
