There’s no doubt that as a bride-in-planning myself, I search the depths of Pinterest and of course, our very own galleries for unique little touches. But the weddings I come back to time and again are simple and sweet, with subtle pieces of pretty that will sneakily steal your heart, like this affair from Jacqui Cole. Little pink bows on silverware, a basic but beautiful naked cake and effortless white florals… all together, it makes for a lovely day.
From Jacqui Cole…My absolute favorite weddings to capture are when the couples stay true to themselves. It’s so easy to get caught up scrolling through Pinterest and clinging to the current wedding trends. Although they are great forms of inspiration, the key is to stick to the wedding elements that you genuinely love and take it from there!
Keri and Connor did just this.From the ‘Roth’ vineyard wine bottles to the timeless details it was just the perfect wedding for them. The men’s navy suits tied in with their blush/navy/tan color theme. It certainly added a unique touch and perfectly complemented the garden wedding. Keri chose her rose gold wedding band to go with her platinum engagement ring. When I asked her where she got the idea she simply said she saw it at the jewelers and just loved it! Her Jimmy Choo flats were absolutely stunning! Keri was able to party the night away without relinquishing style :)
Personal touches throughout the wedding day are so important. Keri had her mothers wedding dress lace wrapped around her bouquet as her ‘something old’ and she wore her Grandmothers ring as her ‘something blue’. As the new Mr and Mrs Roth, each reception table had ‘Roth’ vineyard wine bottles, filled with babies breath and ivory roses. Such a simple, yet elegant centerpiece. Their naked-cake was the focal point of the room! Neither Keri or Connor like cake icing so this wedding-trend fell perfectly into their hands!
Above all the entire wedding day was filled with so much love and emotion. The rain swept over and the clouds parted just before the garden ceremony took place. It was such a joy to capture an incredible couple becoming husband and wife after 10 years together. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Roth!
