Kristi ♥ Steve
Talk about a sweet start: Kristi and Steve were childhood sweethearts. The couple met on a birthday and had become inseparable ever since they were 15. Steve proposed on Valentine’s Day and fittingly, the couple planned a classic and romantic wedding. Their color scheme choices of gold and deep red made for a rich and glamorous event. Ahh, the photos are so gorgeous that I’d want the same color palette when my lovey and I renew vows!
Extra Special Wedding Details
The proposal. On Valentine’s Day last year, Steve surprised me by taking me hot air ballooning (I’d always wanted to go). We were watching the sun rise and absolutely freezing, luckily I had Steve to keep me warm. At one stage though he had stopped cuddling me, by the time I turned around to see what he was doing he was down on one knee with my stunning engagement ring gleaming up at me.
The wedding style. Our wedding was definitely glamorous! I really wanted our guests to be blown away, by everything! With this in mind we really had no limits set — the more glitz, the better! Thousands of flowers and hundreds of candles, we wanted every element of our wedding to be incomparable and unforgettable.
The wedding dress: I couldn’t decide between having a big princess dress, or having a more sexy fitted dress. So in the end, I decided to combine both! I also wanted to wow our guests with another dress for the cutting of the cake, so I chose to literally match my dress with the cake and have gold detailing throughout.
The wedding décor: We focused our wedding décor around the contrast of gold and different shades of red. Our reception included over 2,000 individual flowers which really popped again our clear glass furniture and gold detailing.
Tips for The Brides-To-Be
♥ On your wedding day; take a deep breath and enjoy yourself! Your whole day goes so quickly so you really don’t want to spend it stressing about minor details that may or may not go wrong.
♥ Your bridesmaids and groomsmen are there to help you, take advantage of that! If there’s anything that they can do to help, ask them so that you have one less thing on your mind and you can really embrace the day!
