One of my most favorite possessions as a kid was my rainbow bright doll and that love affair with colorful objects clearly carried on into my adult years because I can’t seem to get enough of this wedding. It’s an explosion of colorful details and whimsical snapshots made all the more fun and heartfelt at the hands of Jordan Brittley‘s photographs. Have a look for yourself right here in the full gallery of images.
From the Bride… Our wedding venue was a pretty easy pick, because it was my home church. I wanted to celebrate our special day in a place that was important to me. For our guest book, we had our guests sign their names using a bottle of paint. We had this done on canvas so that they became a work of art we could display in our house!
I really wanted our wedding reception to be semi-informal, comfortable and FUN. The stage was a spot to have the wedding party sit where they’d stand out from the rest. For our first look, we were each holding a bouquet of balloons and released them once we were in front of each other. This day was all about happy, and I think balloons totally give off that vibe! It was exciting to have a moment together before the craziness of the wedding ceremony and reception began! I. love. color. I get SO much joy from seeing bright colors together, so I knew for sure that’s what I wanted the wedding colors to be. It took a painstakingly long time to get those colors…in that order…perfect.
My favorite part of the day, was really the day itself. It’s something I longingly looked forward to for so long. But even more than that day…all the days after…because I’m living life with my best friend. I also really cherished the message our pastor gave – encouraging us, “as iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” He gave us a hands-on analogy with some pruning sheers and a sharpener – it was a great visual.
