Pink Christmas Wedding

Pink Christmas Wedding

Thank you to everyone who applied for the position. We will be in touch with applicants who we believe are the best fit, so please sit tight!

Personality, personality, personality! Chelsea and Brock were determined to infuse their day with plenty of it and the final product is a day full of fanciful color, favorite foods, amazing design and cozy holiday details. A wedding photographer herself, the bride had in mind exactly what she wanted out of her big day and started curating knick-knacks and attire that perfectly reflect her relationship with her fiance. I love how Chelsea describes the reception as “a world that reflects all that you and your hubby love!” You said it, my friend. Thanks to Jamie Delaine for the amazing photos!

From the uber-creative bride, Chelsea. Our colors were red and green originally. Red is Brock’s favorite color (one of his alma mater’s colors) and bright green is my absolute favorite color–I drive a green Beetle and all of my own business branding is green. The red and green really worked since we were having the wedding so close to Christmas. Then, I decided on a pink dress and started adding in touches of pink everywhere and the vision came together.

I acted in college and love the arts in general (Brock is a musician and I am a photographer) and decided that I would love the look of a black theater that gave me free reign to decorate as I desired. We had three pieces of furniture on stage, symbolic of the home we are building together. When we exited after being announced hubby and wifey, all of our family threw fresh long stem roses on stage, reminiscent of classical theatre!

I did all of the planning and coordinating myself, which may not be right for some brides, but being a professional wedding photographer myself, I knew JUST what I wanted. With our invitations, we sent out “tickets” that our guests signed and dropped in a box at the ceremony instead of a standard guest book. When our guests entered the ceremony, there was a red vintage suitcase with all of the programs in it as well as the “ticket box.”

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? To start with, your wedding day ia ALL about you and your hubby. Don’t ever forget that. Be respectful and sweet when family members and even friends try to tell you how it should be done, or what tradition is, etc, but remain firm in what YOU want for your wedding day.

  • Everything about this is brilliant…it was there style on their terms and that’s why I think it’s brilliant!

  • Amanda,
    oh no! Is it too late too apply for the position?! I was just finishing it up and opened the page and the app is gone! Say it isn’t so!

  • AWW! I love this!! Her pink dress is just amazing and they are such a sweet couple. Didnt notice in the post but is that their son helping them cut the cake? If so…aww! 🙂 LOVE THEM! Congrats!

  • Did she change her dress, did anyone else notice this? The first is a long pink dress and the second is a short white one. Well she looks amazing in both so perhaps she was unable to decide between the two. It looks as though they had a wonderful time!

  • My morning check in . to see what’s new on ruffled. Typically, I don’t care for big flowers in the hair but Megan’s red feathers passed my litmus test with flying colors, wondering if the feathers came from an air bound bird? ( who appointed me arbiter of good taste anyway? LOL!

    The tickets instead of guest book, what a great idea and ever so much more fun.

  • Awesome! Anything Gwen Stefani inspired gets my approval! 🙂
    Would love to see the program and “ticket” invite!
    Thanks for sharing these photos and ideas!

  • Hey, this is the groom. To answer a question, yes my wife wore two dresses. The first was a complete surprise to me as I had seen one pink wedding dress but she actually got a different one that I discovered during our first look. The second dress was a white dress to dance in at the reception. Chelsea loves to dance and this gave her the freedom to move about gracefully and comfortably. And look quite hot I may add. By the way, it wasn’t mentioned in this post, but the most unique part of the wedding to me was the fact that my groomsmen and I played Your Song by Elton John on our horns as the bridesmaids entered. Most of us met in marching band in high school (with the exception of my brother, the best man, who played trombone and inspired me to learn music). It was an incredible experience and I am grateful it got featured. By the way, you can see a link to our wedding video trailer here:

    Thanks all!
