Pink and Peach Barn Wedding

The Burks photography

Figuring out what is most important to you on your wedding day is a key factor in the planning process.  For our next couple, Amelia and David’s main objective was to make sure that all of their guests were comfortable and had a great time. They were sure to share this objective with Karin and Peyton Craig of Encounters, when they started the planning process.

So, figure out what is most important to you and begin planning. While you are figuring that out, enjoy Amelia and David’s pink and peach barn wedding captured by The Burks. Be sure to see every last photo full gallery here.

Weather Worries

From the Bride: I wish I hadn’t spent so much time worrying about the weather! Planning an outdoor wedding usually has some element of weather-related anxiety, but I let the rainy forecast seriously stress me out during the week leading up to our wedding. Fortunately, we had a wonderful (and relatively cool!) August day, but even if it had rained, it still would have been a beautiful wedding.

My advice to future brides is to enjoy everything about the planning process and the day itself; although it may not seem like it in the stressful moments, it will be over SO fast. You hear it all the time, but you really want to be able to look back and say you were happy through it all.

Our Guests Are Number 1

When we were planning our wedding, one of the most important things quickly became how our guests would feel on our day. We wanted everyone to feel welcome, relaxed, and comfortable. We knew that if we accomplished that, then our wedding would reflect who we are. So, from that came the blending of our Kansas and Pennsylvania upbringings into our “rustic chic” wedding. It was a beautiful day spent with the people we love, and we wouldn’t change a thing!

Romantic Paris Wedding Ideas

French Gray Photography

Steve and Majell wanted an “Entre Nous” (Between Us) vow renewal in a garden-setting with a French theme incorporated into every detail of their day. Majell was always fascinated by Marie Antoinette so it comes as no surprise that their vow renewal was on the grounds of the gorgeous Château de Versailles.

Everything from the glamorous ombré pink tulle Vera Wang ball gown and jeweled bouquet to the romantic vow renewal on the rowboat along the Palace of Versailles’s Grand Canal complimented their theme perfectly. It was Marie Antoinette meets the 21st Century and it was amazing! View additional romantic Paris wedding ideas in the full gallery here, captured by French Grey Photography.

It was important to choose a unique location that was not considered cliché. I also didn’t want a place where tourists could easily walk by as we were saying our vows to each other, which is something that is a bit hard to avoid in one of Europe’s most visited destinations. I thought about the things that drew me into French culture. I’ve always had a bit of an obsession with Marie Antoinette since I was a little girl. To me, her style was audacious and exquisite. It was then I thought about Marie Antoinette’s lovely palace she shared with King Louis XVI, Château de Versailles.

Anyone who’s been to Paris knows that the weather is unpredictable. We were a bit worried that it would rain on our wedding day. Luckily, on the day of our 10th wedding anniversary, the clouds gave way to the sun. We arrived at Château de Versailles and made our way through the lush and symmetrical gardens to the large lake called Le Grand Canal. It was here where we recited our vows in a rowboat. It was perfect because that romantic and intimate moment was ours to cherish forever. Saying vows again where the King and Queen of France famously lived was truly a dream come true and very surreal. We can’t think of a more perfect backdrop to say, “I do” again.
