Our Wedding: The Details

I am thrilled to get to share the details of my own wedding with you all. So much love went into every decision, and I couldn’t be happier with the way it all turned out. After all, our wedding is the reason I decided to start this business! Take a look at the highlights of our southern wedding below.

You can say I was a very traditional bride. Our wedding ceremony took place in a beautiful, historic church downtown. This church is very special to me because it was also where my sister got married. I wanted the invitation suite and program to portray the same traditionalism so I went very classic with a formal script font and no extra colors or illustrations.

Our ceremony program was a small booklet with an old drawing of the church on the front cover. The finished product was tied together with an ivory ribbon. Truly, the programs were one of my favorite details from our wedding that I will always cherish!

I decided to have the paper goods and signage at the reception to be more modern than the ceremony. The atmosphere for that part of the night seemed fitting for that switch.

I still went very simple with the decor because I wanted to let the gorgeous venue speak for itself. We played up the black accents in the room and added in touches of gold. I didn’t plan on having a distinct theme, but as the planning went on a subtle bird theme evolved. There were bird cages holding candles and small gold birds on tables. Although you can’t see it in the picture, the wedding cake is sitting on a bird bath.

The groom’s cake table added such a fun element to the reception. We wanted some aspect of our wedding to highlight our Auburn background which is the reason behind the Auburn Tiger cake toppers. And they perfectly matched the Auburn plate we got as an engagement present!

Our wedding reception was one of the first in this new facility, and I still can’t get over how stunning it is. The details of our wedding came together perfectly to create an amazing day celebrating our marriage with all of our friends and family.
