Some of you saw a peek of our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding when I posted the photographer’s link on FB. I’ve been dying to share the rest of the details from their wedding but I had to wait on the photographer’s pictures because…well….I forgot my camera on the day of the wedding and didn’t get ONE picture!! I’ll try to share as many details as possible in hopes to help those of you who are planning a wedding.
Almost every picture shown is from the most precious photographers, Josh and Kariss. Pharris Photography is wonderful and we HIGHLY recommend them!! Please note….the photographers took the pictures all the professional pictures that I’m posting. If it looks like an iphone picture, then Josh and Kariss did NOT take those….I stole those from friends on FB.
Donut Bar:: This is what the guests took home as a wedding favor.
This was taken before the wedding and before all the pie was out. By the time the photographers were able to take pictures, most of the pie was gone.
Tori and Chad married on Jan.1. Originally, they wanted an outdoor wedding because the venue is so beautiful outside, but due to freezing temperatures, we moved it inside at the last minute.
The venue was Heritage Springs in Anna, TX.
Tori had a vision of what she wanted. Pinterest is a great tool, but I will say that it can also overwhelm you. Pinterest weddings are put on by professionals and a lot of them are just styled for photo shoots so it can lead to false expectations.
During the planning process, Tori really knew what she wanted. We took her ideas that were on pinterest and created a private wedding board that both of us had access to. We also added the florist, so she could see our ideas. Once we decided on what we were going to do, we would label exactly what we wanted, pin it, then were done. That helped because I would drive myself crazy with “what about this?”
Tori wanted the decoration simple. She wanted simple baby’s breath on each table. We ordered the baby’s breath from Costco and they delivered a few days before the wedding. Did you know they have wholesale section for weddings and events. Tori read everything online about them and ordered accordingly. We were very happy with them!
We didn’t have a coordinator and did almost everything ourselves. (I had several friends, my inlaws and Chad’s family who helped the day of the wedding with all the decorating.They were amazing!!)
The venue is strict on what you can toss, so Tori and Chad chose lavender. Tori ordered it online. We over ordered. You do not need much.
Chad’s brother made the sign on the stage and also the “Mr. and Mrs.” sign. He’s crazy talented!
I think I’ve covered all the questions that I’m usually asked. If I missed something, feel free to email me or leave a comment.
Stay tuned for Part 2….
