One thing I loved about wedding planning was all of the little details. Unlike most little girls, I didn’t grow up dreaming of my perfect wedding. I only knew two things: #1 it had to be at the beach & #2 I wanted color and sophistication. When I thought of my wedding, I wanted it clean and crisp but with a few bold touches.
My great grandma, grew coral peonies in her yard. Growing up, my mom said she loved those peonies. So when I was looking at a way to pay tribute to my moms side of the family the beauty and personality of coral peonies because the fixture that I planned all of the details around.
My mom and I had so much fun creating the perfect wedding day, but it wouldn’t have been nearly as beautiful or successful without the help of our wedding planner, Melinda. She was amazing and immediately understood our vision.
From there, the details were born. I knew I wanted acrylic, especially acrylic signs. I once saw a photo of one in the Brides of Oklahoma magazine and I feel in love. I based so many of our details off wanting to incorporate acrylic. The signs, our cake topper, and even the name plates at each table incorporated this clean yet fun and trendy piece.
Next, I knew I wanted whites with a touch of gold. There was something so clean and classic about it. We wanted to make sure that they were supporting details that would allow the flowers to stand out.
We also picked a cake that took a spin on tradition. The gold flakes and honeycomb design were the perfect design element and the acrylic cake top was the best finishing touch.
To top off our wedding, Russell drew the funniest cartoon character of us that we put on Koozies for all of our guests. It was the best little surprise that I know people will still get a kick out of years from now.
Overall, so many little things go into making your day amazing. If you have any questions about the details in this post I would love to help walk you through and relive our day.
