What Are Your Priorities

My biggest advice to brides would be to sit down with your significant other FIRST THING and discuss what your “must haves” and priorities are for the wedding. For us, we knew having a wonderful photographer was a big priority for us. For others, they might really care about the food, venue, etc. Whatever it is – make it work and prioritize around those priorities.

Favorite Wedding Moments

From Jessica RobertsHarley and Chelcie had, hands down, one of the best weddings I have ever attended. Between the seersucker southern details, the location for the reception (a gorgeous private residence on the water in downtown Beaufort), Harley’s reaction to seeing his bride walk down the aisle at the Tabernacle Baptist church, his hip hop through the ages dance with his mom, and just every ounce of fun, love and happiness. It was a dream, and why I love doing what I do.

Pick Your Favorite Wedding Tasks

Take time doing what you want, and don’t bother with the other things. I spent time collecting hundreds of mismatched china dinner and dessert plates for our wedding, and many people were overwhelmed at the thought of me doing so, but I LOVED IT!

Spend You Wedding UnPlugged

Tell your matron/best man to take your phone starting at least on the rehearsal day. At this point, everything should be taken care of and if it isn’t…. IT’S OK! Breathe, enjoy every moment with your soon to be spouse… It goes by in a flash and you don’t want to look back and realize you were on your phone and stressing about things about of your control.

Purple And Gray Wedding Inspiration

Kelsey Stewart Photography @weddingchicks

Chris and Katie are UC Santa Barbara sweethearts, and wanted to incorporate that laid-back Santa Barbara style throughout their day. They were looking to create a no-fuss celebration with a 200+ guest list at an outdoor venue and of course, it all came together in a beautiful fashion. See even more gorgeous purple and gray wedding inspiration in the full gallery here, photographed by Kelsey Stewart.

Appropriate Dress Code

We instructed our guests to wear “lawn appropriate shoes” and that was a really good idea because there were some dirt paths to maneuver. The style of the wedding was originally intended to be “Boho Romantic,” but it ended up being “Rustic Romantic” – which was perfect for us. My best decision in the planning process was my Dad hiring our “Day-Of” Coordinator, Sarah, who offered so much helpful advice and solved every one of my logistical problems along the way.

Seating Chart Windows DIY

The Seating Chart Windows were a DIY Project that my Dad and I conquered. We went to a Habitat for Humanity “ReStore” (essentially a Thrift Store for home parts) in San Luis Obispo and found these beauties. My dad just screwed in some hinges to attach them together and they were done. So easy. After I finalized the seating chart the week before the wedding, I invited over my incredibly talented friend Sarah to do the calligraphy.

Lantern Centerpiece DIY

The centerpieces were another DIY project. We purchased all of the lanterns from Pier 1, and then we used Velcro to stick the battery packs to the tops of the lanterns. The Velcro held and hid the battery packs perfectly, and the fairy lights gave the whole barn a whimsical feel. Our wedding day was the hottest day of a heat wave in our area. We had misting hoses hung up like at Disney World around the cocktail area.

Wear What You Love

I was worried though the planning process about wearing a flower crown at my wedding because it was such a “trend”- even though I thought they were beautiful. Instead, I had a lovely jeweled headpiece from BHLDN that I was planning on wearing when at the last minute I decided I just wanted to wear a flower crown. My florist Erin made a beautiful one, and I couldn’t be happier about following that “trend.”
