Hello all, today I have a lovely yellow and grey wedding submitted by Poem84. Lindsay & Darryl’s Georgia wedding is full of traditional details, a church ceremony, fun reception and a bubble send off.
From The Bride, Lindsay:
How did you meet? We grew up with the same circle of friends, but never lived in the same city. I moved to Atlanta after college and we actually worked in the same building and attended the same church! This gave us a great opportunity to take our time and get to know each other. The dates became more frequent, and the rest is history!
Wedding planning and inspiration? My favorite color has always been yellow, and Darryl’s is gray. Luckily, they look fabulous together, and all of the decorations really reflected us perfectly. We wanted a sweet, natural feel that complimented our surroundings in the Georgia mountains without venturing too far into a country vibe. The mason jars, baby’s breath, and honey (our wedding favors) really helped us accomplish exactly what we wanted.
What was your favorite memory of the day? There’s literally so many to pick from! One that stands out is what we did before we headed to our hotel in Atlanta. After our send off, we went back to our rooms to change clothes and pack the car. We then went back down to our reception site where our family and wedding party were packing up. All of the guests had gone home, but we were able to hug our loved ones and thank those that had spent months helping us make our day so special. Instead of rushing away, we were able to spend a few moments taking in all of the wonderful memories we had made that day. It’s a time with those closest to us that I will cherish.
Do you have any advice for other brides? I would recommend taking time at the beginning of the planning process to decide what is most important to you and your husband-to-be. There will be things that you have to bend on, or that may not turn out exactly how you imagined, but realizing in the beginning what’s really important will help you get through the times when things don’t happen as planned. You’ll be more stress-free and give yourself room for creativity – we decided on our favors less than two weeks before the wedding because our original idea just wasn’t working out, and it was perfect!
