I'm so excited to finally be able to bring you guys some more photos and details from Colin and Maranda's wedding that I mentioned here. The wedding photos are in, so let the oooh's and aaah's begin!
The couple got married at the charming American Village in Montevallo, AL. The weather was perfect. The date was January 7th, but the temps would have made you think it was a spring wedding. The chapel decor was fit for a winter wonderland with snow and pine cones anchoring the aisle. The bridesmaids picked out their own black dresses and carried baby's breath bouquets while the groomsmen coordinated with mix-matched silver and black ties and baby's breath and pine cone boutonnieres.
From Colin's studebaker (used as the getaway car), to Maranda's twin nephews' outfits, to the barn reception site, the day was filled with vintage charm.
One of the things I was responsible for was the entry table and signage. Maranda had the great idea of using puzzle pieces for people to sign instead of a guest book and a calendar for everyone to sign on their birth date. I styled the table with an antique candelabra of my grandfather's, some old books, baby's breath and Paul Revere bowls. And of course, their silhouettes I painted for their shower, had to make another appearance.
Maranda opted for a simple and classic cake with layers of white chocolate strips while Colin, being a big Virginia Tech lover, went for a groom's cake fit for a Hokie fan.
Personal touches were everywhere. The couple's last initial appeared throughout and a Bible featuring the couple's new names as husband and wife was used in lieu of a traditional ring bearer pillow.
It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple! And it ended with a snow toss to send them off into their new life together.
Congrats, you two! I wish you all the happiness in the world!
