“Taylor and Shane were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony, on a perfect October day at Sans Souci Farms. This wedding took place outdoors at a Hay Farm, but had plenty of bling and sparkle! Sequin table covers, blush toned florals and even a foot washing ceremony by the Bride and Groom – this wedding was unique!” –Megan Manus Photography
What is your favorite wedding day memory?
Oh my…so many of my favorite memories happened that day. I don’t think I have a most favorite because they all were, but one of the sweetest moments was walking down the aisle to my soon to be husband and seeing how excited he was to see me, even after we had our first look. We also “snuck away” from the crowd where Megan Manus Photography and Cinema Weddings captured our foot washing ceremony as the sun was setting. It was such a beautiful and humbling moment. I always laugh when I think about the fact that they started the wedding ceremony without me there. I was still at the lodge waiting for someone to pick me up to take me to the ceremony location and they had already started walking our wedding party down the aisle when I finally arrived. I never once got mad, I found it very funny. It just goes to show that something unexpected my happen on your big day, but to just enjoy it. Because I knew that eventually they would realize that I wasn’t there and they couldn’t actually have the wedding without me.
What did you DIY for your wedding?
I could not have had my ideas come to life without the help of Cricket Newman Designs. They took everything I wanted to do and completely exceeded my expectations. My favorite DIY projects for my wedding were the save the dates and the invitations. Although I did not actually have the printer to print them, I sent them into a company that printed them exactly as I wanted them. I came up with all the fonts, the colors, etc. I also made a custom stamp for the cards and used my computer to print all the addresses on the invitations. That was the most time consuming, but it saved me so much in the long run instead of having someone hand write each one.
Did you have a something old, new, borrowed and blue?
My something old/borrowed was a beautiful pair of pearl earrings that were my Grandmother’s. My something new was a single pearl pendant necklace surrounded my diamonds that my parents gave me at our rehearsal dinner. Lastly, my something blue was actually a pair of gold tiek flats that had a turquoise sole!
Any advice for brides currently in the planning process?
To enjoy the planning process, but to not get bogged down in the details. I always kept in mind that something could go wrong, but I would not let it ruin my day. As I always kept that in the back of my mind, I stayed calm and enjoyed the process that much more. -Taylor, the Bride
