Loved Ones Looking Out For You

From the Bride: As cheesy and gooey as it sounds the best part of the day was becoming Logan's wife. I was not nervous at all and was very calm, because I knew he was the one. I was expecting to be nervous because my papaw passed away and I was walking myself down the aisle. I thought was going to be hard, but after the rain apps said 60% chance and we had nothing but the bluest skies I have seen, I knew he was watching over me and us and it made everything perfect.

Designing Your Own Day

A lot of people don't know I planned the entire wedding by myself. I chose the colors, decor - everything down to floor. I would group message my mom and Logan's, but I always ended up knowing and going with my gut instinct. 

I wanted it to be whimsical romance with an undone, raw edge. I wanted pinks and dark magenta and I wanted my bouquet to have texture and movement (as opposed to classic bouquets). I am a bit of a wild card (and so is Logan), so I wanted to show that but still represent the love we have.

Ditch the Heels & Grab Some Dessert

The flowers, and my desserts were my other fav parts of the wedding - oh and the chandeliers! I wanted glitter doughnuts and rice krispies. I just wanted everyone to have a good dessert that was probably part of their childhood, and those were a part of ours so it made sense. For the romantic feel we wanted, the chandeliers were a must. I was like "hang them everywhere!" lol. 

My biggest advice would be the cheesiest! Relax, enjoy yourself, don't stress and use the bathroom before you walk lol! Also go for two dresses! I did and my best friend got me beautiful Swarovski crystal foot jewelry and I actually paired that with a skirt and the top that technically went with my dress! I wanted a bohemian Carrie Bradshaw type feel and to have fun and no bride can truly cut loose with high heels on the dance floor... So get a second dress and toss the heels.. Have fun and dance!
