Verdant Alabama Wedding

If you’ve ever wanted to see a monochrome wedding done right, today’s your day. Rebecca and Sam chose a color palette of rich greens with just a hint of blues to produce a relaxing, calm, and at-home feeling on their wedding day. White Rabbit Studios was behind the camera while Kris Clark of Sugar Rock Events helped the couple plan their ideal day.

From the bride, Rebecca: I wanted our wedding to represent us. I envisioned a laidback, relaxed wedding with a focus on décor and design. I’m an interior designer, so the décor was the most important part to me. I knew I wanted to incorporate vintage items because the majority of the furniture in our home is vintage. Our house is extremely colorful, and I carried that through to our wedding. Our home is decorated in blues and greens, which are the same colors used in the wedding. For our color scheme, I used the same colors that are in our house – blues and greens. I would describe our wedding as vintage mismatched. Some people looked at me like I was crazy when I mentioned that I didn’t want anything to match, but thankfully the vendors we chose all understood the vision for the day.

I LOVE working on crafts and projects. I always have multiple projects going on at the same time, and our wedding day was no exception! DIY projects that I tackled were the save the dates, invitations and programs, all the flowers, my veil, church wreath, cake toppers, signage, and ribbon wands for our departure. I made paper flowers for the bouquets and backdrop. This was definitely the most time consuming project! I started on the flowers as soon as we got engaged and kept making flowers for about 7 months. My bridesmaid, Melissa, was huge help! We made about 60 flowers in one weekend! Sam also was great at making flowers! He made all the boutonnieres for the groomsmen.

My sister, Megan, helped with the invitations. She drew the border that was used on the invitations and several signs. She also drew the map that was included with the invitations. My friend, Ashley, offered to make the bride and groom couple cake toppers. Sam wanted our dog, Finn, to be included on the cake, so he made the tiny Finn topper to go with the bride and groom. I made the state shaped cake toppers to represent our home towns and states. My hardest DIY project was the veil. I read a couple tutorials on making your own veil and it seemed easy enough and a huge money saver. I’m sure this would have been a very easy project for someone who is great at sewing, but I am not that person! Both my parents are very talented at sewing, and my mom was able to help me with some of the more challenging aspects of this project.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Hire a wedding coordinator! Hiring Kris from Sugar Rock Events was the best decision I made! She made the whole day run smoothly, and I didn’t have to worry about a thing! I’ve been to weddings where the bride’s mom and/or aunt are acting as wedding coordinators, but coordinating is a full time job and I wanted our family to be guests at our wedding instead of worrying about tons of details. Planning our wedding was so fun and not the least bit stressful, which is in large part, due to Sugar Rock Events. If you are planning any DIY projects, start working on them WAY in advance! My goal was to have every project complete one month before the wedding, which I didn’t quite make. I ended up finishing everything two weeks before the wedding, and I’m so glad I didn’t have any last minute details or projects in the days leading up to the wedding. I was able to relax and enjoy being a bride!

Bridal Processional: “Perfect For Me,” Ron Pope
Interlude: “Three Rounds and a Sound,” Blind Pilot
Recessional: “First Day of My Life,” Bright Eyes
We aren’t really dancing people, so instead of a First Dance we wanted to do something that was more representational of our relationship. A typical weekday for us consists of Sam playing the guitar while we sing together. It took MONTHS of convincing, but Sam finally agreed to sing together at the reception. We sang “Cake and Eggs” by Deer Tick and Sam played the guitar.

From the event designer, Camden of Emerson Events: I was looking to create something fresh, new and modern, while keeping some natural raw elements. After a few brainstorming sessions, I developed my theme. My tabletop inspiration came from an old tree branch that I had picked up at a site visit for a client. I knew I wanted to incorporate it with some mixed metals and different textures. After a trip to a local fabric shop, I picked my color palette.

The venue I chose is local OKC restaurant, Red Prime. They had the perfect setting with the exposed brick and natural lighting. I gave the baker creative range with her design, and she executed it perfectly. Lighting was also an element that I felt was important in the overall design. The lighting arrangements hung above the table were all custom designed by my go-to lighting company here in OKC. I told them what I envisioned, and they delivered! A lot of the details were custom made and crafted by myself and my team. I wanted to show brides that they can think outside the box, and still have a chic design!

Fruit Packing Shed Wedding

Where to begin with this wedding? I could start with the incredibly unique venue choice, a fruit packing shed in Australia, or the colorful handcrafted wedding signs, or even the bride’s eye-catching bejeweled wedding gown, just to name a few points. I think my favorite part of this wedding, though, has to be the couple’s first dance, where the guests wrapped the newlyweds in streamers – such a cute idea! Thanks for your lovely work, Love Katie + Sarah and The Style Co.

From the bride, Renee: We wanted a relaxed yet fun party atmosphere for our wedding. We had a vision that centered around family, food and fun. We believed that every guest that attended the wedding would leave with a smile on their face, a full belly and memories of an amazing celebration of love and family. Our colour theme was pink, white, green, grey and yellow. Basically lots of natural and raw backgrounds with pops of colour.

Our bonbonniere was tea infusers with a charm ‘let love brew’, a loose leaf tea and wedding cake. Quite a few hours with the family to attach the charms to the infusers, bag and label the tea and label the boxes made for a yummy treat to guests the enjoy the day after the wedding. My father (Mick) and some staff from the orchard picked two large pear trees in the rain the Wednesday before the wedding. They also managed to get them to stand in fruit bins for an amazing back drop for speeches and centrepiece for the main bar.
