Tag: pink and blue wedding

When your girlfriend describes y’all’s first date as a “fairy tale,” figuring out how to propose must be quite a tall order! After reading Chelsea and Will’s sweet story, I am positive that Will couldn’t have planned it better (be sure to read their interview below!). After the proposal, it was Chelsea’s turn to plan, and they created a wedding that they both loved. It included amazing pink blooms, a very emotional first look, and meeting in the middle of their respective home states for an outdoor wedding at the gorgeous Castleton Farms!

Big SW hugs to Katherine Birkbeck for sharing this wedding with us!

My something borrowed was my sister’s hair barrette from her wedding! My something old was my grandmother’s hand-knit hankie–my aunt gave it to me with a letter that she wrote and signed “Aunt Sherry and Grandma Wanda.” It was like a little gift from heaven. My something blue was my garter and my something new was my jewelry.

My flowers were gorgeous. I wish I could have kept them forever! My groom vetoed pink for wedding colors, so I had to have my pink flowers instead! The bouquets were filled with pin roses, calla lilies, and hydrangeas. We had two enormous flower pots filled with gorgeous, fresh hydrangeas on either side of the altar, and flowers hanging from chairs down the center aisle.

Did you decide to do a “first look”? Why or why not? Yes, we did! I loved all the first look pictures that I had seen and really wanted to capture this reaction. Since we had our ceremony and reception at the same venue, we also wanted to get all of our pictures done ahead of time so our guests wouldn’t have to wait. Lastly, our first look definitely helped with the nerves. I was nervous before I walked down the aisle (in the best of excited ways), and I can’t imagine how much more nervous I would have been without the first look. It helped a lot, and I am so glad that we did it.

What made you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they have any special significance to you? I wanted to get married in Saint Louis, and Will wanted to get married in South Carolina. We couldn’t choose, so we decided to meet in the middle–Tennessee! I love the outdoors and flowers, so I knew I wanted to get married surrounded by nature’s beauty. When I found Castleton Farms, I knew that it was the perfect place. Everything was Southern, sweet, and elegant. It was perfect for us.

Our first dance was to “Forever Like That” by Ben Rector, who is one of our favorite singers. We saw him in concert twice while we were dating. Will actually picked this song out for us, which made it that much more special.

I am a four-year alumni of the Carolina Girls Dance team at USC. As part of a wedding gift to me, my coach choreographed a dance with all of my teammates and Will. The dance started with the girls dancing to some of our favorite songs, and then they formed two straight lines. All of a sudden, Will starting dancing down the aisle and it became a whole production. It was absolutely amazing.

How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. My friend, Taylor, lived in the same hall as me during out freshman year at the University of South Carolina. Taylor and Will were old family friends, and she introduced us at church. Will asked me out, and on our first date, he took me to a cute restaurant in an old train station. Then he took me to the Horseshoe on campus, which is a huge lawn (in a U shape, of course) with giant old oak trees. When we got there, there was a blanket with candles on each corner, where we sat and talked. It was the sweetest first date ever, like a fairy tale!
Tell us all about the proposal! It was March 15, just two days after my 21st birthday. We were supposedly going out for my birthday when Will took me back to the Horseshoe (where we had had our first date). We walked up the brick pathway, and I saw candles and rose petals on the ground. He stood me in the middle of them, got down on one knee, and asked for my hand in marriage. I said yes, of course, and he gave me a gorgeous diamond ring. I called my parents (who were supposed to be in Saint Louis, where I’m from) to tell them the news. All of the sudden, I saw both them and Will’s parents come out from behind one of the buildings. I was so surprised to see my family there. It was all just so wonderful!
When did y’all get married? June 14, 2014
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? 160
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? Yes, we did! My favorite phrase was, “We will strive to put God first in or marriage, before all else.” God is the most important part of our lives, and we really wanted to show that through our wedding.
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? One thing that I thought was particularly sweet was that Will’s dad was his best man. In Missouri, I hadn’t seen anyone do that, but I found out that it is quite a Southern tradition. I loved having my father-in-law standing on the altar with us to celebrate our special day!
If you are comfortable responding, what range did your wedding budget fall into? $25,000-$50,000
What was one way you saved money or cut costs at your wedding? We didn’t serve alcohol. We decided to cut it because: 1. It saved a ton of money. 2. We wanted everyone to remember this special day. 3. To get to the venue, you have to take very windy backroads that are dangerous even without the slightest bit of alcohol. 4. My husband is studying to be a pastor, so it seemed appropriate. Those who wanted to drink just went out after the wedding because our reception ended at 11.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you most looking forward to about married life? We lived in different states for a year, so we are just enjoying being together right now. We love cooking together, going to the beach, and dancing!

    I always smile when I see a wedding photographed by our Blue Ribbon Vendor, Rachel May, pop up in the blog schedule–without fail, it seems, the weddings she shoots are sweet and feminine, with a touch of Virginia country. Candace and Matthew certainly fall into this category and I love the way they planned their wedding to fit their personalities to a tee. From the songs they walked down the aisle to, to Candace’s dress, to the outfits the gentlemen wore, every detail was a reflection of who Candace and Matthew and their family and friends really are. Because of this, I can only imagine that all of their guests felt right at home–nothing makes a wedding more wonderful than that!

    P.S. Candace and Matthew are celebrating one month of marriage tomorrow–yay!!

    Tell us about finding your wedding dress. I’m a Pinterest addict, so I had a copious amount of wedding dresses that I absolutely adored pinned to my wedding board. My first attempt at finding a dress was at David’s Bridal, but since nothing there had truly caught my eye, I wasn’t expecting to find anything. My sister ended up picking out a lace dress that I loved, and as soon as I put it on, I knew it was the one. It was classic, but had vintage flair. My mom was bawling her eyes out because it reminded her of my grandmother’s wedding dress.

    My wedding wasn’t the most traditional of weddings. Matthew’s groomsmen are a bunch of rowdy, country boys that love getting dirty, so I figured putting them in a tux or even a suit could potentially end in disaster. They wore navy blue gingham shirts, dark blue jeans, navy blue suspenders, and navy blue ties. We have pictures of them all on top of and jumping off of one of their trucks, which is completely “them.”

    Pretty much the only thing Matthew didn’t say “whatever you want” to about the wedding was the song that he and his groomsmen walked down the aisle to. He requested ZZ Top’s “Sharp Dressed Man.” That song right there established the untraditional feel for the entire day. My bridesmaids came in to “Oh, Pretty Woman,” which I deemed fitting with the groomsmen’s song. I walked in to Ingrid Michaelson’s version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” Our recessional was to American Author’s “Best Day of My Life,” for obvious reasons, I think.

    Did you have something borrowed, blue, old, and new? If so, do tell! I borrowed the lace sleeve off of my grandma’s wedding dress, which had pretty button details at the wrist. We wrapped it around my bouquet. My something blue and old was my great grandma’s sapphire ring. My something new was my shoes–I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them, and knew they would be perfect for the wedding!

    What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? My reception had burlap everywhere! My tables were draped with a navy blue tablecloth, a lace overlay, and then topped with a burlap runner. The chairs had burlap bows. My centerpieces were various-sized mason jars and rustic wooden boxes overflowing with gorgeous flowers. We served pulled pork, BBQ chicken, and my personal favorite, cornbread, at dinner. My favors were s’mores, and they were the cutest things ever!

    Describe your wedding cake or dessert. We went with cupcakes because I wanted a variety of flavors for everyone. Our caterer recommended a bakery in downtown Fredericksburg that has the most delicious tasting cupcakes. We decided to go in for a tasting, and she was right, they were amazing–not to mention, well within budget. We had carrot cake, strawberry, red velvet (Matthew’s favorite), and a chocolate turtle cupcake.

    Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding and why you chose them. Our first dance was to Eric Church’s “Like Jesus Does.” We both love country music, and this song is fitting to our relationship. My favorite song of the entire day was the father-daughter dance song, Point of Grace’s “King of the World.” My DJ, Eric Herod, suggested the song to me because I had mentioned that I couldn’t decide one. As soon as I listened to it, I immediately started crying.

    How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. We both worked at CarMax and saw each other in passing from time to time, but it wasn’t until a mutual friend’s birthday party that we started talking. We immediately hit it off and were inseparable from that day on.
    Tell us all about the proposal! Matthew met up with me after a business trip to Pennsylvania. I had been sitting in traffic all evening, and he had been impatiently waiting for me to get home. When I got back to work to check my email, he was waiting in the parking lot for me–of course, I took forever to go outside, since I had absolutely no idea that he was out there! He eventually texted me to hurry up because he had a surprise for me. And right there in the parking lot, he proposed to me where we first met.
    When did y’all get married? May 18, 2014
    How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? 100
    Did you decide to do a “first look”? Why or why not? I love first look pictures, so I threw around the idea of doing one and changed my mind on a daily basis. We ended up sticking with tradition and did not do a first look. I wanted the first time Matthew saw me to be that moment that I was walking toward him to be joined with him forever.
    What made you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they have any special significance to you? Both Matthew and I were raised in Spotsylvania, Virginia, and a lot of Matthew’s family is local, so we wanted a location that was close to our hometown to make it easy on everyone. I knew from the beginning that I wanted a rustic outdoor ceremony, and I absolutely fell in love with Stevenson Ridge the first time I went there. The wood beams in the lodge were calling my name, and the lush green backdrop for the outdoor ceremony was wonderful.
    Describe your wedding flowers. I was absolutely in love with my wedding flowers. I met with Amanda from Anthomanic after drooling over her work for months and months, and I knew she would be PERFECT for what I wanted. We ended up describing my flowers as fluffy and pretty. They included peonies, Juliet roses, and hydrangeas in light pinks, corals, and whites. The groomsmen wore succulent boutonnieres for a more masculine touch.
    If you are comfortable responding, what range did your wedding budget fall into? $10,000-$25,000
    What was one way you saved money or cut costs at your wedding? A lot of our reception decorations were DIY projects my mom and I made, including the table numbers, the mantle decor, and the favors.
    What is the one detail or vendor that you were so happy to have as a part of your wedding? I don’t think I could pick just one. My photographer was wonderful and so sweet, and everyone was in awe of her pictures. My florist blew my mind with all the gorgeous flowers, and my DJ made our reception more fun than I had ever anticipated.
    What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? When removing the garter to Hot Chocolate’s “You Sexy Thing,” Matthew decided to do a little dance while he was removing it. Thank goodness multiple people caught it on video!
    What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Don’t wait until the last moment to start planning–you’ll end up stressing yourself out more than necessary.
    What’s next for you as a couple? What are you most looking forward to about married life? We didn’t take a honeymoon right after our wedding because Matthew got a new job, and taking the time off wouldn’t have worked out. So now, we are saving for a nice tropical getaway, and we couldn’t be more excited about it!

      Any way that you can provide more details on the bride’s shoes? LOVE them! But can’t find them on Modcloth’s website:(

        Mary, it looks like they don’t have them in stock anymore :(. They are called “Go For the Rose Gold Flat” – they came in rose gold and a pewter/silver color. I know they bring items back, so maybe that’s one they will?

      Such a sweet wedding. These two looked so happy and I love all the adorable details!

    It is always so much fun to see a wedding planner’s wedding! In Leanne and Jason’s case, they were inspired by their love of the South, a collection of beautiful family heirlooms, their rival Texas college loyalties (y’all know I’m with Jason on this one–hook ’em!), and most importantly, their parents, who have both been married for over 39 years. The beautiful magnolias and preppy striped details are surely thanks to Leanne’s design savvy, but their touching ceremony and care for their guests was what made this day truly special!

    Thanks to Sara & Rocky for sharing this lovely wedding with us!

    Did you have something borrowed, blue, old, and new? If so, do tell! I borrowed my mother’s monogram brooch that my father had given to her on their wedding day in 1970. I’ve always loved it. Jason gave me a monogram necklace for our wedding as well. My something blue was my clutch. My mother carried it to her prom and gave it to me, and I had been saving it since high school to carry at my wedding. My something old was my veil, which was handmade of Brussels lace that my mother purchased in Belgium in 1969. It cost $450 even back then, and is a priceless family heirloom. My mother and aunt both wore it at their weddings, and I made the wedding dress consultant swear she wouldn’t bring me any dresses to try on that didn’t match my veil.

    I chose to walk down the aisle to an instrumental version of Patty Griffin’s “Heavenly Day.” She is my favorite artist of all time, and every time I’ve heard that song, I imagined it being played at my wedding. She is from Austin, so it was fitting to use a musician from Texas. One of my bridesmaids sung “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”–this is not only one of my favorite hymns, it also really explained how our waiting patiently for each other attested to God’s faithfulness in our lives. Every person in our wedding has already been married, so we stood by countless friends as they met and married their spouses. We feel so grateful to have finally found each other and we know that God’s faithfulness will continue in our lives, no matter what challenges may arise.

    Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? Yes, since we had a civil ceremony outside, we knew we wanted to write vows that represented our commitment to one another, and to really help our friends and family see our deep love for each other. My favorite lines from my vows to Jason were, “You smile at me when I am at my worst and turn my bad moods into fits of laughter… and who can forget your sense of adventure? You have turned my life into one giant, fun-filled ride.” My favorite line from Jason’s vows were, “I’ve waited for you my entire life; I’ve fought for you, and broken down the walls around your heart. I was always optimistic there was a future for us. You have been worth any struggle.”

    Our entire wedding was over-the-top Southern. From the magnolias on our invitation, as a nod to my parents’ Mississippi roots, to the quilt that was displayed on the old church pew, hand-sewn by my great grandmother out of my mother and grandmother’s clothes. The cotton boll boutonnieres paid homage to my grandfather’s cotton farm. Our cocktail napkins said “Cheers Y’all” because we wanted our guests to know that every detail was about them feeling welcome and at home. Our first dances were all to country music, and we two-stepped, naturally. I even changed into my boots for the reception so I could really enjoy it all! We had custom cornhole boards made that represented the college football rivalry in our marriage–I’m a Texas A&M Aggie and Jason’s a Texas Longhorn. It must be a family tradition, as my parents went to State and Ole Miss!

    Describe your wedding flowers. They were AMAZING!! Our flowers were white, ivory, and pale pink with touches of coral, green, and gold. Branching Out utilized roses, spray roses, garden roses, peonies, ranunculus, sweet peas, lisianthus, freesia, anemones with black centers, gardenias, magnolia foliage, clematis vine, jasmine vine, and Italian pittosporum to create natural, whimsical styles with of lots of texture and movement. We used a mixture of gold, white, and striped vases, urns, and footed bowls to create various heights of centerpieces throughout the reception space. Gold glittered rods were also styled with miniature magnolia wreaths with navy and white striped bows.

    We had a biscuit bar at cocktail hour, complete with homemade strawberry jam, and also served sausage balls made from my grandmother’s recipe. Our dinner menu consisted of short ribs, jalapeno cheese grits, greens, squash casserole, cornbread, and parker house rolls with honey butter. We had coconut macaroons flown in from the Mississippi State Bakery as a surprise for my dad, and gave them out as favors with monogrammed stickers.

    As Jason’s fraternity brother serenaded me, I knew this was my Southern wedding dream come true. Amazing food, family and friends, great music, and a well-stocked bar. It really was the perfect day.

    How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. Jason and I met through an online dating website. We’re both older in the midst of busy careers, so we eventually took the plunge. Never in a million years did we actually think we’d meet our spouses that way. Our first date was in fall 2012 when we watched a Dallas Cowboys game, and then ended up going to Central Market, a local market and cafe, to shop for some beer to pair with one of Jason’s new cigars. We decided you can learn a lot about someone at the grocery store, just based on what they like to eat and how they shop. Now we always reminisce about our relationship at grocery stores, which definitely makes it more fun! I knew Jason was special when he would stay up till 2 a.m. to talk to me while I drove home from weddings. Dating an event planner isn’t an easy task, especially during wedding season! He would even bring me dinner sometimes when he knew I was exhausted and didn’t have time to cook. By the spring, we knew this was the best relationship we’d ever been in.
    Tell us all about the proposal! We went to a friend’s wedding Memorial Day weekend, and Jason whispered, “I don’t think this is our last walk down the aisle together,” as we left the church. We went ring shopping together after our friend’s wedding weekend. I fell in love with a setting, and he selected a stone. When he said, “We’ll take it,” I nearly fainted! He turned to me and said, “Well, of course we know we’re getting married!” The ring was custom made and took three weeks to be completed. Those were the longest three weeks of my life! After they were up, I told him that if he held onto the ring for much longer, I didn’t think I’d survive. One Saturday afternoon in June, I went to his place after work. When I knocked and walked in, he was on his knee in the living room, surrounded by dozens of flowers and our favorite music playing. He then explained the significance of all the flowers: red roses because I’m the love of his life, white roses because his love for me is pure and he never wants to hurt me, maroon for my Texas A&M, orange for his Texas Longhorns, and an array of colors because I’m the “most colorful woman he knows.”
    When did y’all get married? March 16, 2014
    How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? 175
    Tell us about finding your wedding dress. Because I’m a wedding planner, I knew I wouldn’t have a lot of time to look for a dress, or find one that didn’t require a multitude of fittings. My mom asked me to go to a shop that sold samples when my aunt was in town, and I never in a million years thought I would buy a dress that day. When I tried on the fifth or sixth dress and saw their faces, then looked in the mirror, I knew it was the one. It fit so perfectly and didn’t even need to be hemmed. It also looked so lovely with my mother’s heirloom Brussels lace veil that all the women in my family have worn in their weddings, which sealed the deal.
    Did you decide to do a “first look”? Why or why not? Jason and I wanted to do a first look so that we could have some time alone and get any tears out of the way before the ceremony. We didn’t want to “ugly cry” through our vows, which we wrote ourselves. We also knew that it would be so nice to take pictures beforehand and then spend more time with our friends and family who had literally flown in from all over the world to be there.
    Our favorite detail of the wedding was: I loved the family photo table with the large magnolia wreath that said “Because He first loved us.” It was filled with pictures from our parents’ and grandparents’ marriages, along with photos of our relatives who couldn’t be with us. Not only did we get married because of God’s love, but because of all of the love that our family and friends poured into us, and the wonderful examples of marriage in the generations before us. Both mine and Jason’s parents have been married for over 39 years.
    What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? It was definitely hard to design and plan a wedding as a full-time event planner. Because I’m exposed to so many amazing vendors, it was very hard to narrow down who to select and what design elements I could incorporate that wouldn’t feel reminiscent of other events I had planned. I really had to stay true to who Jason and I are as a couple and focus on what our family and friends would enjoy most. At the end of the day, I knew I wasn’t my own client–I was the bride. I learned that even though I wanted people to see my design talents, all that really mattered was that I was marrying my best friend and that everyone we loved would be there.
    What was one way you saved money or cut costs at your wedding? One way that we saved money was with calligraphy. I thankfully inherited beautiful handwriting from my mother and grandmother, so I addressed all of our invitations and hand-lettered the magnolia leaf escort cards. We also purchased decor when we could get it on sale, such as some of the specialty vases, bar trays, striped straws, and decanters for the cigar bar. We tried to save money on any of the minor details that Jason and I could create by hand.
    What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? We both stopped during dinner to stare at our wedding bands and try to soak in the fact that we were actually MARRIED! We looked out over the room and were filled with so much joy to see everyone we loved look so incredibly happy and having such an amazing time.
    What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Hire a planner and try to get things done as soon as you can. The last few weeks leading up to your wedding should be focused on preparing for your marriage and enjoying your family and friends, not focusing on little details. It will help you go into your wedding with a sense of calmness that no amount of money can buy.
    What’s next for you as a couple? What are you most looking forward to about married life? We are getting settled into our house and enjoying projects to get it fixed up. We are looking forward to traveling, falling even more in love, and continuing to get to know each other even more every day. We can’t wait for a lifetime of adventures! Our journey is just beginning, and we are so excited about the possibilities.
