She has such a creative eye so I knew her wedding would be full of meaning & have a cohesive vision! She used rose gold all through out. Obsessed with her rose gold Vince Camuto shoes & her amazing engagement ring. She changed dresses for the reception, into a semi-backless dress with rose gold geometric triangles detailed into the skirt. She had her maids & house party in a mixed matched array of creams & soft pinks. So many personal touches all through out. And an amazing baby blue Thunderbird as their exit car!
She describes her wedding as "outdoor, eclectic, whimsical". With shades of ivory, blush, gold, & grey. Live painting, desserts, coffee, and an intimate setting. A little bit of a travel theme woven in because of our love for the nations and the majority of our relationship took place in Morocco. I used accents of rose gold, especially in my jewelry/shoes/reception dress, and our wedding rings are rose gold."
I LOVED getting to wear two dresses. I am SO glad I had a reception dress! It made for more fun photos, was comfortable, another reason to have a beautiful dress, and the perfect dress to leave in for the rest of the night! I allotted time for changing dress where my sisters, mom, and grandma all helped me change. This was very special as it represented our generations and I got time alone with them on such a significant day!
I LOVED quality time with my bridesmaids. They've been my best friends and have helped prepare me to be a bride. The morning before our wedding, we all sat around for coffee and I had the honor of encouraging each of one them and giving them a gift. My husband and I had picked out "leather-messenger" purses in the medina of Morocco (where we dated). I will never forget those moments and the opportunity to honor each one of their friendships. We chose these because they are "leather messenger bags" and his last name is leatherwood, and mine messenger. You get the idea. It was perfect!
