Google+ Details: Christine + Iaan, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

I feel like we could spend a week looking at this wedding, don’t you agree? So many beautiful and thoughtful design details tucked away that I feel like I find something new to oooh and ahhh over every time I take a peek! The happy couple’s polka dot was whipped together by Kanya Hunt, Leipzig took care of the beautiful mixed flowers, Sebastine Pepler made Christine look even more beautiful than usual, and Cognito Restaurant catered what looks to be delicious eats. Hungry for more? Be sure to check out Christine + Iaan’s wedding video here, and check back later for one more detail from the day!

Describe your wedding cake: Fun and festive. We had a polka dot chocolate covered three-tiered cake. The first layer was berry ganáche, the second chocolate mouse and the third carrot cake.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? I’ve shot more than 125 weddings and I’ve seen so many different things, I didn’t know what to choose when it came to my “style” and colors. So I really had to decide who Iaan and I were and what would represent our personalities.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Walking down the aisle, for sure. It was a long aisle and looking at Iaan all the way, was just amazing. Knowing this is forever and my biggest dream come true was an honor and a moment I’ll never forget!
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We did write our own vows. I loved this part: “On this special day I give to you my sacred promise to stay by your side as your faithful wife.”
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We are building our own house this year and very excited about this awesome project!
