The couple: Joy and Brad
The Wedding: 7.16.11 – Morganton Community House, Morganton, North Carolina
What three adjectives that best describe your wedding? Fun, Elegant & Simple
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? I am a simple girl and so is my husband. I wanted a elegant yet simple wedding with accents of coral. White flowers for center pieces along with greenery. I wanted our personalities to reflect in our wedding. I also saw several pictures in the bridal magazines that inspired this elegant and simple wedding style.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? My dad and I did a surprise dance for our reception. We had practiced for months. It started out with Butterfly kisses then it went to Do You Love Me, Baby Got Back, and finally ended with Butterfly Kisses. It was such a surprise to everyone and we pulled the entire dance off perfectly. Another moment that I will always remember is seeing my husband tear up as I walked down the aisle. That was such a magical moment for the both of us.
