Today’s real wedding is the epitome of a relaxed summer celebration. Captured by Amanda May Photos, this colorful farm wedding is just too sweet.
The wedding decor had color everywhere. The bride wanted a kind of whimsical garden feel with as much color as possible. Flowers were her number one must have at the wedding. The florists were just amazing: they took the bride’s vision of colored glass and colorful wildfires and ran with it. She also wanted the wedding to feel as intimate and elegant as possible. She thought that the glass tied in everything that she wanted well. She chose a location that had a backyard feel to it, but she didn’t want it to be too rustic.
For her dress, she didn’t set out to choose the dress she did. The bride chose a simple lace dress with a key-hole back and what sold it the most was the cathedral veil. The veil was just the right touch and it was a beautiful addition. For the bridesmaids, she wanted them to all look uniform. She chose to have them wear the same style dress in a color and style that she thought would flatter everyone. They were a burgundy tulip style dress, which she thought incorporated elegance, without it being too formal.
A lot of the details in the wedding were DIY. The dark wooden farm tables the bride made with her grandfather. All of the signs, from the window pane seating charts to the guestbook signage were all lettered by her, too. Anything with writing on it was hand lettered. The guestbook was a puzzle, because the couple loves to do puzzles together. She also made her entire invitation suite: the bride personally designed and printed them.
