While I love a good blush wedding, I have fallen for the rich hues in today’s lakeside wedding from Elisabeth Carol. The jewel tones are perfect for fall, especially in those gorgeous long sleeve lace bridesmaid dresses.
Since we were getting married in October I wanted to use warmer fall-inspired colors. I wanted something simple and elegant.
I wore my mom’s veil. My grandmother had made my mom’s veil when she got married, and my grandmother made some changes to it for me so that I could use it. It was special to me that she had worked on the same veil for both my mom and I.
We got married in the church that I grew up, which is also the same church my parents were married in! The ceremony was one of my favorite parts. There was so much build up, and the minute the doors opened to walk down the aisle I was overwhelmed by a sweet calming feeling.
While we were planning a wedding we also graduated from college, moved to a new city, and start our first jobs. So we were beyond busy during the planning process! I think the most important thing was that we stayed on the same page the whole time. We did a great job of still going on dates and having fun during the entire process.
We used a lot of mercury glass and set the elegant tone with candles throughout the ceremony and reception. We went with navy, cream, peaches, and golds throughout the flowers, bridesmaid dresses, and wedding details.
The highlight of the night is when Corey and I got up on stage with the band and sang 500 Miles. It was so spontaneous, hilarious, and by far one of the best memories from the whole night!
