I love seeing brides get the chance to wear their grandmother’s wedding gowns. It is not always possible, if it wasn’t saved or isn’t in good enough shape, but it is one of the sweetest details you can have in your wedding. Today’s wedding from Blueberry Creative is so lovely, especially since the bride wore her grandmother’s gorgeous gown. Paired with a necklace from her other grandmother and a darling bow in her hair, the look is timeless.
Our wedding was a fall affair with oranges, greens, yellows and gray. We chose Raleigh so the wedding was a destination affair for everyone but the bride and groom. The chapel allowed us to have a picturesque ceremony and an intimate reception.
The most important part of the wedding was making sure the day reflected us. The food we love, the music we danced to, and the people who are important to us. Our older brother officiate the ceremony, our closest friends were in the wedding party and our parents and extended family flew in from across the country. Our parents went to high school together. Both sets of partners are high school sweet hearts for Kellam High School in Virginia Beach. The groom’s father was the best man in the bride’s father’s wedding 30 years ago.
The groom, Dane, made the art for the cocktail hour, wedding portraits from our friends and family that had been married the year before. He also made the welcome sign, the place cards, and the beverage signs. Dane’s partners made the M&M Wedding favors and Katie’s Great Aunt Joan made the wedding cake. My favorite part of the day was the dance party. It was great to be surrounding by friends and family have a great evening.
