From the bride, Christy: We both love camping and first said, “I Love You” around a camp fire, and Will proposed to me while we were camping. We thought it was a fun theme and spoke to what we wanted to have, a nice getaway of an event for everyone to have fun!
I chose a color palette of mustard yellow, teal and turquoise.
Each bridesmaid had a different dress that they picked out during our day of shopping and my maid of honor was in teal while all other girls were in yellow.
I was mesmerized when I walked into our reception.
I loved the mixture of bottles and mason jars with the tall vases filled with yellow aspens. It looked lush and elegant like you were walking through the forest with bunches of flowers on the side of the path.
During the reception, we decided it would be fun to have a conga line and pass out feather boas, glow sticks, hats, crazy glasses and turn the fun up a notch.
Looking back, I wish I would have made the time to talk to all our guests.
My advice: People will tell you it’s just a day and don’t worry about the details and that you are working too hard and blah, blah, blah. If you want to dig into the details and make stuff that you will only have for a day – do it. It is what makes the journey to your wedding day. Remind yourself that nothing else matters but being married at the end of the day. You get to marry your best friend and that’s all that matters.
