If you are looking for inspiration for a classic and timeless wedding, you have come to the right place! I have one of my favorite weddings of the year on the blog and this is not one to be missed. Between the powder blue floor length bridesmaid dresses, to the lush fluffy white flowers surrounded in elegant greenery. Each part of Patrick and Tina’s day was perfectly cultivated, and I kept telling her how it was like a stylized shoot on a real-life wedding day Basically, their wedding was a photographer’s dream.
One of my favorite touches, was that Tina got ready at her parents’ house, just minutes away from the wedding venue. The home was bright, white, and had amazing natural light, allowing us to create dreamy detail and getting ready portraits. Each touch was perfectly thought out, nothing was overdone; rather, each touch was a perfect mixture of classic, elegant. I also had the pleasure of working with some of my favorite vendors—amazing and professional vendors make a HUGE difference on wedding day.
Inside the bright reception room, greenery hung from chandeliers, creating an classic and elegant setting for their reception. The long family style tables lined the room, with gold and white details pulled together with classic white fluffy florals. The centerpiece of the room were the white barn doors with metal hardware (think fixer upper) which was framed with lush greenery. In front of the doors, the wooden sweetheart table covered in greenery with pops of gold accessories stood, creating the focal point of the room. While the design was elegant, it didn’t lose a welcoming feeling. It felt as if you were in a friend’s dining room, hanging out and sharing dinner. I’m not quite sure how Tina and Patrick did it, but they did and it made for the perfect wedding reception atmosphere.
As beautiful as the day was, my favorite part was when it came time to cut the cake. Okay, I know this probably sounds silly, but leading up to the cake cutting Patrick and Tina’s family had Greg and I laughing at the amount of heckling there was. With Patrick and Tina both being surgical residents their friends and family joked about who was going to make the first cut, if they would even share the knife, and who had the steadier hand. I was cracking up, because this was so truly them. I loved watching their family tease them and loved watching Patrick and Tina play it up. Oh, and if you were wondering, they had perfect technique while cutting the cake.
