Q: What was the most memorable moment of your wedding?
A: I’d say standing outside the reception with Dylan, looking in at all of our closest friends and family was such a wonderful, surreal moment. I also cherished all the sentimental pieces we tied into the day: the heart from my Papa’s shirt on my bouquet, my Grandmother’s recorded piano music playing while everyone came into the ceremony, my Uncle Kenneth playing the song for me to walk down the aisle to… lots of sweet moments. I LOVED having a live band. The music was better to listen to while just eating dinner but it was music that was a lot of fun to actually dance! It made it feel a little more relaxed and cozy with some folky, Americana style music.
Q: What attracted you to your theme/color palette?
A: I’ve always loved wildflowers and just love the natural look so I wanted my wedding to have this same feel. Ferns have always been a favorite of mine with how wispy they are, and Ashley helped me pick out a perfect combination of colors and textures to go with them.
Q: What do you wish you would have known prior to DIYing your wedding flowers?
A: I can’t think of anything I wish I’d had as known. It all turned out great. I was really flexible with the types of flowers though, not set any specific types, so when some flowers weren’t in season, it was all ok.
Q: Do you have any advice for a bride-to-be who is interested in DIYing their wedding flowers?
A: Find someone that respects and understands your vision and is flexible and creative. I wasn’t worried at all with Ashley in charge. I could tell she understood my preferences and style and had great ideas for putting it all together. And don’t stress about the little things. It’ll all turn out beautiful!
Q: Is there anything you would have done differently?
