There are few things sweeter than a wedding at home! Brittany and Tim’s intimate and eclectic wedding was full of handmade details, mismatched decor and table settings from thrift shops, and tons of beautiful colors that made it a true one-of-a-kind celebration. No two tables were decorated the same, which made their poolside reception look like it was pulled straight out of an antique shop. We love that Brittany chose a modern twist to classic bridal style with an embroidered Hayley Paige gown and pink fur stole so that she stood out against the all-white attire their guests wore. Emma of The Bold Americana brought every moment of this eclectic wedding to life and made us fall in love, yet again, with the inherent charm that comes with at-home weddings!

The most important thing to me was that I did anything/everything to avoid being a bridezilla. My mother was our wedding planner because my mother has an incredible eye and Timothy and I work a ton and lacked the time and energy to pull our wedding together. Weddings can be incredibly stressful and I trusted that we would all collectively create a beautiful wedding to kick-off the rest of our lives together in the most peaceful and loving way possible.
As for my now husband, the most important things he focused on was his “Thank You” speech, providing tasty food, and building our cornhole structure. We just wanted to see our families get together to send us off on our journey and to thank them for their support.
Our ceremony was one I feel I can never forget. It was incredibly intimate and emotional in all positive ways. Just having all the people we love present and pledging our lives to one another was truly a magical experience!
For my bridal look, all I wanted was a Hayley Paige wedding dress! I love her design technique, taking traditional silhouettes and putting tasteful spins with modern fabrics, embroidery, and beading. I never felt prettier! I also loved the headpiece I found from Free People! As for the wedding party, we did not have bridesmaids or groomsmen. Instead, we opened the wedding up to our friends and family’s and asked that everyone wear white.
Our photographer Emma was great! She really was like secret ops. While I was getting ready, she captured all the decor around the location. Once the show began, she was seamlessly present. She never interrupted and captured all of our beautiful moments.
We didn’t necessarily select a color. My mom had been thrifting for over a year to put together place settings, decor, etc., so we couldn’t pinpoint our color palette. We just had to stay open minded so there was a flow to the decor. We had different place settings for each table (family style).
My husband surprised me with a ‘sexy’ dance. It was overwhelmingly hilarious! Many of our friends and family probably were embarrassed but I love my husband and, for once, I felt everyone knew what a riot that kid was and what I now have to deal this the rest of my life!
