Tamara and Michael's outdoor wedding is wonderfully simple, elegant and tasteful. There aren't a ton of little details, but I'm sure that you'll agree that it was still a beautiful day, all around. With every lovely moment captured by Kelsey of Feather & Twine Photography, an AMAZING custom made wedding dress by Courtney Powers of CEP Designs and a beautiful color palette to work with, Tamara got all of the big, important details just right.
"Michael and I have both always had a very strong connection to nature. We love being outdoors, and knew immediately that we wanted an outdoor wedding. We aren't into a lot of fluff, and we really loved that nature was able to provide most of our decorating elements," said Tamara. With an earthy, stylish color palette of mint green, eggplant, slate and light gray that perfectly blended with the natural outdoor environment, there was a very "soft and ethereal tone to the day." The couple chose to have a first look, which ended up being their favorite memory from the day. "...It was just such a beautiful and intimate moment. We both cried and laughed...it helped us to calm down and loosen up a bit before the ceremony," said Tamara.
Tamara and Michael were very, very happy with their wedding day because they kept it about them, no matter what. "In hindsight, the planning process flew by and I am so glad that I didn't let myself get too stressed out or bogged down with the details. You will have family members who drive you absolutely crazy with their wants and opinions on everything, from your decor to whom you choose to invite. Listen to their suggestions, but remember that this is YOUR day. This is a day for you and your significant other to celebrate how crazy in love you are! In the end, the only thing that matters is the love between you two, and the love and support that everything in attendance has for your future together."
