Elegant Romantic Outdoor Wedding at the Hummingbird Nest Wedding

"I wanted pure romance and candles everywhere. I always dreamed of having an outdoor wedding with tons of elegance. Whimsical! I chose blush and soft colors. I really wanted a elegant romantic outdoor summer wedding. I'm all about candles and flowers so I had to have them everywhere. I made all my wedding invitations and made signs for my little ring bearers to hold while they walk down the aisle. I added my Mom's rosary to my bouquet. For groomsmens gifts we did engraved liquor carafes with glasses for each guy. A mariachi band serenaded us down the aisle after we were pronounced husband and wife! My favorite moment was walking down the aisle and locking eyes with Bobby! That was the most beautiful moment for me. I was all smiles. I had blush and ivory colors for my flowers. Peonies are my favorite so I had to have them in there! I mixed my tables with round and long wood tables. On the long tables I wanted to have long greenery since I was going for a rustic French style whimsical reception. I handed out multicolor pastel parasols at the ceremony as everyone's gift so they could block the sun and it made for beautiful pictures. For my cake I chose to do a white three tiered cakes with fresh flowers I used in all my arrangements. I purchased my dress at Lovella Bridal. It was an ivory lace with blush. I really wanted a vintage style mermaid dress, off the shoulders." -Bride & Groom

Favorite Part of Wedding Planning: 
  • My favorite part was the venue and figuring out what color scheme I wanted. I also loved picking out my flowers and different greenery for my tables. dress shopping was also fun! The most stressful part was figuring out who I was going to hire for my catering company and my guest list.

Words of Wisdom:
  • Enjoy every moment of your engagement and wedding day! It really goes by so fast so take a minute to yourselves and spend 5 minutes with each other because as soon as the reception starts it goes by so fast. Also don't let family dictate what you should do or who to invite. Remember it's your wedding!
