Making family history a big part of her wedding helped focus April on how to set the stage for her perfect wedding day. A variety of authentic vintage details from her grandmothers crocheted table runner that decorated the cake table and her long time family friend’s vintage getaway car to her brothers arrival at the family home in his plane that was once owned by their grandfather (the story behind how he tracked it down to buy it was heartwarming), were featured throughout the days activities.
The Brides mom helped to continue the theme with lovely French toil in pale blue to cover the tables and compliment the floral arrangements and monogrammed miniature feed sacks as party favors, a nod to the family farm, a gracious place with rolling hills, ponds and live oaks.
Personalizing your wedding by ‘thinking personal’ helped April and Jason create an event that was both timeless and elegant for their family and guests, surrounded by generations of personal details. It’s a great way to involve and pay tribute to your family’s history and have a starting point for both color and design.
For their engagement session, we traveled to Jason’s family cotton farm. Against a backdrop of the setting sun and rows of ripe cotton, the couple and their dogs walked and talked together, enjoying the fact that they didn’t have to ‘be’ anyone but themselves, and just enjoy each others company. It was a great way to get to know them both a little better and find out just how important family was to them both.
