One Day : Planning

It’s week 2 of One Day and this week I’m featuring Carrie’s wedding! Her and her fiancé are getting married May 20th, 2011 and I was able to discuss some of their plans and vision. Hopefully I’ll be able to follow up with them after their honeymoon to Puerto Rico and share exactly how everything went! For now, here are a few style boards. Enjoy!

Their colors are sage green, yellow, and ivory (and yes, she is going to wear yellow heels under her wedding gown)! They are throwing an intimate wedding with some family and close friends. Since it is both their 2nd marriages, they are aiming for simple and relaxed. The vibe of the wedding itself is vintage, kind of a ’50’s glamour vibe.  Her gown is a strapless Justin Alexander (an ivory silk with a shelf bust with rhinestone detailing).

Carrie is wearing her grandmother’s vintage rhinestone necklace (something old & borrowed) and we love this idea. Wearing something like a locket that your mother or grandmother wore can be such a wonderful touch. [Wedding photography above by Megan of Megan W Photography.

Carrie shared, “We’re having an evening wedding, & then a twilight candlelight cocktail reception.  We are planning on having a champagne bar with mixers.  We are having it at a gorgeous English tudor bulit in the early 1900’s.”

I loved Carrie and Patrick’s attitude about everything. They’re letting the bridesmaids pick their own dresses, instead of a large wedding cake they’re serving an assortment of 4-5 flavored cakes, and Carrie’s 12 year old son will be a groomsman. I’ll be looking forwarding to see the photos and hear all about it!
