For Amy and Wes, the most important aspect of their wedding was for it to be personal and intentional. Choosing a neutral palette, Amy’s bridesmaids wore different shades of blush, ivory, and beige. Their venue, a family member’s farm in Luther, OK, was full of trees and greenery, so the neutrals were a lovely compliment to the scenery. We absolutely love that the couple included a family dessert table, which offered homemade specialty treats. Melissa Green Photography perfectly told the wedding story through photographs.
Amy and Wes
Private Residence, Luther, Oklahoma
From the couple: The most memorable moment was the first look. We wanted to have a private moment together before the ceremony. There was so much anticipation, nerves, and excitement leading up to that moment and when we finally saw each other for the first time, we were overcome with emotion. We cried, and laughed, and held each other. It was definitely one of the most memorable moments for sure.
From the bride: My bridesmaids DIY’d my guestbook and display with all our engagement pictures. I bought a brown paper journal from Barnes & Noble and had one of my bridesmaids customize the front with our name and wedding date in handwritten script. We had people take polaroids of themselves and paste them in the guestbook. It was so much fun to go back and look at all the photos. The girls displayed our engagement pictures behind the guestbook on an old door. They ran twine across the door and taped our engagement photos to the twine. It made for an awesome display for the guestbook table.
From the bride: I walked down the aisle to a recording of Wes singing and playing “The Wine We Drink” by Drew & Ellie Holcomb. Our recessional song was “Love on Top” by Beyonce, naturally. Our first dance song was “Turning Page” by Sleeping At Last.
Advice from the bride: Wedding planning does not have to be stressful. Choose to be intentional about the details that really matter most to you, that reflect you as a couple, and let the rest be what they are. For instance, I have no clue what color my napkins were at my wedding. But I vividly remember tasting my MeMa’s pound cake from our family desert table. It’s the details that are the most personal that matter most. Your wedding day only happens once and the only thing that truly matters that day is that you are marrying your best friend. Be present in every moment, and ENJOY it.
