[Editor’s note: So didn’t you know? Today is green day. Unintentionally. ;) Love love love this wedding though… ENJOY!]
Do I have a stunner of a wedding by Alante Photography to wrap things up this Friday! The setting of the Pacific Northwest provides a gorgeous backdrop and I love how the green really pops against the black and white. Be prepared for some stunning images full of pure, raw, and beautiful emotion. And enjoy hearing from the lovely bride, Jennifer, too!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
My mom was a HUGE help!! My fiancé and I live about four hours away from where I grew up and where we were planning on getting married. He works full time as an engineer and I’m a full time nursing school student. So for about four months my mom would run around and take numerous pictures of different place settings, center pieces, and all aspects of the wedding then let me choose what I liked. I literally could not have had such a wonderful perfect day without the help of my parents!
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
The most important thing that I/ my mom looked at when we interviewed potential vendors for the wedding were their ideas and what they could bring to the table, how they could make our wedding special for us.
Did any of your vendors do anything special for you before, on, or after your wedding day that you would like to share?
My parents (although not vendors) had strawberries and champagne sent to our suite, the hotel had food sent to the room, while the cocktail hour was going on and our wonderful photographers had a slide show during the reception that was AMAZING! They also gave us a picture of our first kiss as a married couple when we went to go through our pictures!
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
My favorite thing about the wedding (besides obviously getting married) was seeing everything come together. The ideas that we had started with from the beginning when we started planning all morphed into this beautiful wedding that I could only have imagined in my dreams. There isn’t anything that I would have changed!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
My best advice for future brides is to set aside more than enough time to plan, and to remember that no matter what when you look back on your wedding that little “miss-hap” won’t seem so enormous later, so just breathe and have fun!
A big thanks to Alante Photography for sending these photos our way and to the gorgeous bride, Jennifer, for sharing her thoughts as well. I really love when a photographer is able to capture emotion the way Alante Photography did, don’t you? The laughter, the anticipation, and the joy all come shining through. I love it. Oh, and how much do you love the bride’s necklace? Swoon.
What’s your favorite part of the wedding? The emotion? The colors? The necklace? I’d love to hear!
Vendors who made it all happen…
