Color is an intrinsic part of this wedding. It’s the glue that holds all the pretty moments together. From the bright florals by Blossoms By Lisa to the details awash with color by Going Lovely and Emily Blake’s photography that showcases all those pretty hues in such an elegant way. It’s a wedding that goes POP and you can see it all right here.
From the Bride… Nick and I met while working together. I noticed him first and asked a mutual friend who the cute guy was! For several days I would wear my cutest outfits and re apply lipgloss in hopes that he would notice me. Nick ended up asking the same mutual friend about me and we went out on a lunch date. After that, the rest was history!
I always wanted a romantic outdoor wedding. Nick and I have had so many amazing memories over shared bottles of wine and a vineyard seemed like the perfect venue. I searched for months for a local vineyard that fit our budget and style. When I found Grace Vineyard I immediately fell in love with it! The colonial style estate combined with the vineyard was the perfect amount of romance!
I knew that with a summer wedding and Nick’s Greek heritage that I wanted bold, fun colors combined with leafy ivy and cascading flowers. I chose pink, coral, orange, aqua, and soft touches of green to bring together summer and the numerous pinterest boards i obsessively made.
My favorite part of the wedding day was our first look. We opted to have a first look so we could share a special moment alone instead of in front of all our guests. I was so nervous for Nick’s reaction to all the hair, makeup, and dress, but when I turned around and saw his reaction I knew that everything was perfect.
I would tell other brides that they should definitely hire a wedding planner. I obsessively used Pinterest and combed through wedding blogs, but it takes a good wedding planner to see your vision and to make everything cohesive. Going Lovely thought of so many personal little details that I never even considered. I thought that I could pull it off by myself but leading up to the wedding I was overwhelmed with work, wedding appointments, and corresponding with vendors. I was so relieved that I knew that Going Lovely was on top of everything and knew my exact taste and that they could anticipate what I would like.
