Hey guys! So in case you're unaware, I'm actually on vacation this week. My husband and I arrived in Belize yesterday for a week-long babymoon :) Don't worry, I'm not actually working right now; I just prepared ahead of time! So this week's publication schedule is going to be a little bit different in that instead of my regular Bridal Fitness and Picks on Paper posts, I'm doing all gorgeous weddings and engagement sessions for the remainder of the week. So no worries, I didn't leave you hangin' ;)
Today's wedding feature is a great example of how you can create an absolutely beautiful wedding with just the right, select details and an amazing photography team to document it. It also doesn't hurt that the couple, Chelsea and Travis, are quite adorable. When I first laid eyes on these photos, I actually thought it was a styled shoot with models! The bride is absolutely stunning, and showcases a unique sense of style in her Grecian style Vera Wang for David's Bridal wedding dress and hair accessories.
Chelsea and Travis were married this past summer on August 4th at the Barber Park Event Center in Boise, Idaho. The day was skillfully photographed by both Tana Photography and Yellowline Photography, and coordinated by Bliss Events. I especially love the photos of the couple inside and around the antique blue automobile!
For their day, the couple wanted a "Fresh, clean summery look," selecting a pretty peach and gray color palette with peach gerbera daisies and queen anne's lace for their floral accents. With 150 guests in attendance, Chelsea and Travis were married beneath a gazebo in the late afternoon on a warm summer day. After the ceremony, the reception commenced with food, drinks and dancing, followed by an after party at a family friend's home well into the evening. Guests left the wedding with a fun soundtrack for the day, made up of songs that Chelsea and Travis personally selected.
As for advice, Chelsea offered the following guidance to fellow brides. "I would definitely suggest getting a wedding coordinator. My coordinator was so amazing and kept everything running smoothly. I also would suggest that if you are having a summer wedding, to have it a little bit later in the afternoon and allow for the sun to go down. I think that creates more of a fun dance party-type atmosphere. Also, buck tradition and do things that make sense to you, like I had my brother as a bridesman instead of a traditional groomsmen. Make your wedding your own!"
