Hello my lovelies! I know it’s now officially fall, but I’m bringing a little summer back our way with a coral and tiffany blue summer wedding, that was beautifully captured by Candace Jeffery Photography. Ashley & Robert celebrated their special day this past August at The Riverview, in Simsbury, Connecticut. The bridesmaids were dressed in knee-length coral gowns and carried pink hydrangea bouquets, while the guys looked dapper in their black tuxes. The bride, Ashley, looked absolutely beautiful in her strapless gown, accessorized in sparkly jewels from head to toe. And their reception-as you can see below-was an absolute vision, draped in coral and tiffany blue hues and elegant gold accents.
From the Bride, Ashley :
How did you meet?
Bob & I met at a 4th of July party through a mutual friend. It was a beautiful summer night at a lake house with fireworks. Funny thing is we spent the whole day/night there but he didn’t formally introduce himself to me until that night. I’ll never forget it! Part of the reason why we chose a summer wedding.
What is your favorite wedding day memory?
The night itself was such an amazing feeling. Taking a moment to look around and feeling the love in the air being surrounded by our family and close friends. I enjoyed every single moment. I must say though our bridal party’s entrances were also epic!
What advice would you give to a bride currently planning her wedding?
I kept comparing wedding planning to a 100 page research paper. Each day you make some progress, you feel the stress as you go along but at the end of it it’s the best feeling in the world. Really though!
Also, wake up the morning of the wedding with the expectations that something may go wrong or not exactly as planned, but regardless don’t let it get to you, because you can’t get the day or time back. Just let it be and enjoy the best day of your life!
