Skip Hopkins, your portraits are totally 100% wow-worthy. The end. Sure, Erin + Adam are a gorgeous couple (no, seriously, a lovely, gorgeous couple), but these post-ceremony shots of the newlyweds are just stunning. I’m going to channel Emily for a minute and point out the understated centerpieces (arranged by the bride herself, no less), the too-cute “bride” and “groom” chair signs and pretty grey and white cake from Signature Cakes by Vicki. For more to die for images from Erin + Adam’s Tennessee celebration, visit Skip’s original blog post here.
Describe your wedding cake: Our wedding cake was a three-tiered grey cake with white lace floral appliqué.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Definitely walking down the aisle. It was a big moment. Having my dad give me away, seeing my husband-to-be waiting at the end for me and, of course, the musician Adam hired as a surprise to sing my favorite Rufus Wainwright song! It was something I’ll never forget for as long as I live!
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We did! My romantic husband planned a picnic on Valentines Day in the garden where we would be married six months later. We had our picnic and wrote our vows. The thing I loved most about our vows was that they were so real. Most traditional vows promise to love, honor and cherish, which is very sweet and a lovely promise, but what about the times when you are not loving? What about the times were you are struggling or have heartache? We vowed to love each other even when the other is cranky or not able to love back.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? Since the wedding I quit my full-time job and am enjoying working part-time designing wedding invitations, stationery and, most recently, interior design, and am just loving it. Adam is still working in medical sales. Outside of work, we’ve been traveling and spending time with our amazing friends and family and our puppy. We are incredibly blessed and really enjoy living life together!
Congratulations, Erin + Adam! Love and hugs from your friends at Southern Weddings!
