Tiffany + Derek – where to start with this G O R G E O U S wedding! This couple was a D R E A M to work with as we helped plan their wedding for 250 guests. We loved digging into the planning process with these two in order to ensure that their day ran smoothly.
The wedding party had 5 friends/family members on each side [+ one of the groomsmen was Derek’s twin!]. They spent their morning getting ready in their separate areas, and met up to take some pictures with Sophisticated Grace Photography. We were graced with some R A I N in the afternoon, so had to implement our back up plan. Luckily, they rented umbrella’s from Rustic Elegance, which created some G R E A T photo opportunities as the day went on. Even the photographer, April from Sophisticated Grace Photography was prepared with plastic over her head/camera in order to capture the memories that she wanted to! The Rustic Elegance team of Angie + Kellie continued to work the set-up [despite the rain] with the A M A Z I N G help of the Joan + Britni from Legacy Hill Farm. The couple also rented barrels and a door from Rustic Elegance, and we assisted with the set up of a S U P E R fun popcorn snack display – which included a Chicago Mix + Salted popcorn in apple baskets.
Since it was raining outside, the ceremony took place underneath the pavilion which turned out P E R F E C T L Y even with the rain! After the wedding party made their way down the aisle, Molly [the bride’s niece] and Hadie [the groom’s niece] stole the show as the [most adorable] flower girls, followed by Lawton [the groom’s nephew] as the ring bearer. It was now time for Tiffany to make her grand debut. She was escorted down the aisle by her dad, to the song “When I Say I Do” by Matthew West. The couple had a beautiful ceremony, and for their unity symbol, opted to have two colors of sand and each poor a layer of their colors in a frame [F U N keepsake for the couple!].
After the ceremony concluded, guests were seated for the dinner. This Little Piggy provided a roasted pork buffet [Y U M!] and also an ice cream bar which included FUN toppings! The couple also had cupcakes for dessert from Top Tier Delights, which we placed at each table on wood slices that were made by the groom [love this idea!]. Throughout dinner, the couple opted for a “kiss-for-a-kiss” when the guests would clink their glasses + we loved every time this happened!
By this time, the rain had cleared and guests were ready to D A N C E the night away! We loved working with DJ Tony from Showtime Entertainment, and he kept guests dancing all night long. Their first dance was to Hunter Hayes “Wanted” + they looked so in L O V E while dancing with one another. The couple also decided to include the “married couples dance” to honor the longest married couple, which was such a C U T E touch to a special night. As the night went on, the newlyweds also played the “shoe game” which led to some great laughs from their guests. Guests were also able to finally enjoy the outdoors, and even a bonfire with S ‘ M O R E S!
Tiffany + Derek – we L O V E D working with the two of you! Your love for one another is inspiring and we hope that married life is nothing short of M A G I C A L!
