Brittony and Sean’s wedding vision consisted of a vintage southern picnic with soft colors. With the weather getting warmer and warmer this wedding came at exactly the right time. Lots of sunshine and smiles accented the natural beauty of the Cross Creek Ranch. Keep reading for advice from the lovely bride. There are so many super cute ideas in this wedding and we would hate for you to miss any so go view the full gallery here, amazingly photographed by Vine and Light.
From the Bride:
Favorite moment: When we took our first walk together as husband and wife up the aisle and being able to see all of the family and friends we were able to share that with. Our favorite detail, beside each other from the wedding, would probably be the raw beauty of mother nature and the location. Especially on that day. It couldn’t have been more perfect.
Advice From the Bride:
First, don’t sweat the small stuff during the planning process. All the hiccups aren’t worth ruining the whole process. Decide what is truly important to you and your hubby-to-be on your day and remember, at the end of this whole process, you’re married!
Which leads me into number two, it is YOUR day so don’t be afraid to be firm in what you want. Now, I’m not saying go all “bridezilla” on everyone. Pick your battles wisely. But, don’t feel that you have to cave into what other people think would be best for your wedding. Even if it is family or future family! Your wedding day is a day to represent you and your new hubby.
Last but not least, I wish we could have had a long reception. So many friends and family came in from out of town. The day is such a whirlwind and you try to do it all. It would have been nice to have some extra time to visit with everyone instead of a quick hello and goodbye.
Our budget was $20,000 but we planned our max budget at $25,000. I would say plan for going over your anticipated budget. Give yourself a little cushion room. Our final price of the wedding was more towards our max budget, however, this was due to an increase of guests invited. Decide where you want to spend you money. Make a list and decide how much you want to spend on what. Venue, photography, food and beverage were mine and my husbands top things that we knew we didn’t mind spending a little bit more of our budget on.
