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

Our wedding planner, Kellie Ryan, helped the most on the wedding day. It was amazing not to have to stress out about the details the day of (or have any of my family members/friends running around stressing). There were a few issues the day of the wedding, but I never heard about them. Everything was flawless once we arrived to the venue.

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

We looked for a few things – quick responses, good reviews, and quality of work (ranging from photographs of work done to the look and feel of a proposal). I was wary of any vendors that couldn’t put together a nice looking proposal or sent “sloppy” emails.

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

We wanted something preppy, retro, colorful and chic. The vintage gymnasium for the reception was the key part of the design, and we built the details around it – navy and yellow linens, tulips in bright pops of color, and an eclectic mix of hobnail glass centerpieces.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

Seeing everything come together was the best part! It was awesome seeing our families together, everyone dancing and enjoying themselves. It was just a really great party!

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Find a great photographer and take engagement photos before the wedding. Don’t get too crazy on Pinterest – pick a select few things you want to focus on and don’t worry if you don’t have every typical wedding detail (we didn’t have a guestbook and I don’t think anyone noticed). Hire a wedding planner, at least for the day of. Seriously, you will enjoy the day WAY more if you have a planner to worry about everything for you. Oh…and tell your family not to collect the wedding cards and hide them somewhere without telling your wedding planner, as she may then have a minor freak out. Lastly, do a “first look”. I felt such a sense of calmness once we saw each other, and it resulted in beautiful photos.

Oh I just LOVE all of Jennifer’s advice! Especially the tip to tell your family to not collect your wedding cards- that’s one of your wedding planner’s jobs!

The colors in this wedding are just fabulous! I love how there was a main color palette of navy and yellow, but other colors were still incorporated to add a bit of an eclectic style.

Are any of you going to be using multiple colors for your own wedding? Or will you be sticking to the usual 2-3 colors for your wedding palette?
