Did you know that one of the best ways to saturate your wedding with color is by adding varying hues of the same shade? It provides dimension without going overboard and it gives you choices without overwhelming you (always a good thing in my book). I am loving the way Valerie and Matt did this by including shades of purple in their wedding details… and I’m always a sucker for a good s’mores station! Enjoy your Friday with these photos courtesy of Adam + Alli Photography, lovelies!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Shanna Lumpkin, my event planner, was the biggest help in the planning and making my ideas come to life! She took all my pictures/plans/ideas and made them even bigger and better than I could have imagined. Any idea I talked about she made possible! My actual wedding day, she was running around setting up all the small detailed things I had picked out.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
I wanted someone I could trust to make my wedding the wedding of my dreams, who understood my ideas and was creative in ways I wasn’t!
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
I wanted a vintage wedding full of sentimental things from my family, but also contemporary and slightly modern. I love old architecture, and The South building was perfect to fit my idea of modern but vintage!
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
Oh my goodness, this is a tough question! Not sure what you mean so I’ll answer two ways:
1. Seeing my groom’s face when he saw me in my dress for the first time! He was grinning from ear to ear! (Even while having a million pictures taken, which he usually hates!)
2. My daddy made mason jar chandeliers that hung over my wedding cake! They were gorgeous and so special because he made them for us!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Hire a planner and photographer you feel comfortable with handing over the tasks of your wedding day! You don’t want to be running around trying to get things done. The day goes by so fast that you want to be able to sit back and enjoy every tiny detail you have dreamed about!
Isn’t that purple gorgeous in all those different hues? A big thank you goes out to Valerie for answering our questions and sharing some memories from her big day. I love when a bride recognizes the importance of hiring good vendors (and yes, especially a good photographer and planner!). It really does pay off.
Vendors who made it all happen…
