Growing up Amy loved several different fairytale movies, especially Beauty and the Beast and Ever After. In her wedding she wanted to incorporate the lush, whimsical feel of those movies without blatantly referring to them.
Tons of lush flowers and antique centerpieces incorporated the feel of those stories while still keeping the focus entirely on the cute couple. Get swept away into their story and be inspired by all their fairytale romance wedding ideas when you view the full gallery here, photographed by Concept Photography.
Biggest Planning Challenge
The biggest challenge was planning from afar. We are located up in Boston, so I had to rely on a couple meetings and the knowledge of Brandee Gaar with Blush (my wedding coordinator) and my mom to make sure everything was ready. I had one weekend of initial meetings with vendors; another weekend to see finalized table settings, invitations, etc.; and then showed up at the wedding praying that it all ended up the way I expected. It was absolutely perfect!
Favorite Design Element
Hands down the chandeliers over the dance floor was my favorite element! I had always wanted one, but there were no trees. When I mentioned to Brandee that I was sad that we couldn’t have chandeliers since there wasn’t anything to hang them from she said, “Oh, I have a guy for that!” Ben with Kaleidoscope Event Lighting is a genius and found a way to hang not one, but three chandeliers over the dance floor. At night it looked like they were just floating over the lawn!
Most Memorable Moment
My most memorable moment was the same as Brandon’s, when we finally got to see each other. The aisle was slightly curved, so for the first bit of the walk we couldn’t see each other. It built up the suspense so that it was even better. My other most memorable moment was standing with my dad right before I walked down the aisle. Those few moments gave me a minute to quietly think about how big this event was in our lives and allowed me to walk in to the ceremony with a clear head.Don't miss seeing this moment for yourself in their wedding video below, filmed by Nate and Lori.
