Today’s real wedding is the epitome of a relaxed summer celebration. Captured by Amanda May Photos, this colorful farm wedding is just too sweet. I love all of the vibrant colored glass for the reception decor!
I did not know that the vision I went with would be the one I chose. My pinterest board, which I had been pinning for years now, had a muted color scheme. But my wedding was the complete opposite. It had color everywhere. My vision started with colored glass. I wanted a kind of whimsical garden feel with as much color as possible. Flowers were my number one must have at the wedding. I wanted our wedding to feel as intimate and elegant as possible. I thought that the glass tied in everything that I wanted well. I chose a location that had a backyard feel to it, but I didn’t want it to be too rustic.
For my dress, I didn’t set out to choose the dress I did. I have always loved beaded dresses and I thought that is what I would end up in . However, when I tried on this simple lace dress with the key-hole back I was instantly in love. What sold it the most was the cathedral veil. I wanted a train, but didn’t like any of the dresses with too much fabric. The veil was just the right touch and it was a beautiful addition. For my bridesmaids, I wanted them to all look uniform. I chose to have them wear the same style dress in a color and style that I thought would flatter everyone. They were a burgundy tulip style dress, which I thought incorporated elegance, without it being too formal.
For both of us, our favorite part of the day was the first look. Jordan’s reaction was priceless and I couldn’t have asked for a better reaction. It made me feel so loved. Jordan says this is his favorite part too because seeing me for the first time blew him away and made the day seem like a reality.
The flowers were definitely my favorite. I don’t know much about flowers. My florists were just so amazing. They took my vision of colored glass and colorful wildfires and ran with it. I actually cried when I saw all the flowers at my venue. Up until that point it was only a vision, but when I saw them I knew that it was exactly what I wanted.
A lot of the details in the wedding were DIY. The dark wooden farm tables I made with my grandfather. All of the signs, from the window pane seating charts to the guestbook signage were all lettered by me. Anything with writing on it was hand lettered. Our guestbook was a puzzle, because Jordan and I love to do puzzles together. I also made my entire invitation suite. I personally designed and printed them.
