Calyn & Adam’s wedding is simple but it has distinct details that are just remarkable, like the bride’s brooch bouquet which makes for awesome wedding keepsakes (because it doesn’t wilt!). Also, we love the usage of the deep shade of purple, sangria. This color should be in weddings more! It’s such an elegant shade of purple and we all know how tricky it is to look our best in that color. It’s also refreshing to see the groomsmen wearing suit vests that are not colored in the shade of blue or black. And sangria is a nice contrast too if your wedding is filled with bright or white details. Congratulations Calyn & Adam!
Here are some photos from the wedding plus some insight from their photographer. Enjoy!
What do you think is the overall story for this album?
Young couple become best friends, begin dating, and choose to make it ‘forever’. They were on a budget, but chose details thoughtfully to create a very personal wedding. And they were planning from out of town so things had to be manageable.
What inspired the wedding day outfits?
Her color scheme was sangria and yellow with purple accents. She tied the bridesmaids dresses to the groomsmen’s vests. She even kept the jewelry for her girls simple….pearl studs. The groom’s wedding gift was a pair of Star Wars R2D2 cufflinks. He’s a huge fan.
What was your favorite part of the day?
Their ‘first look’ reaction (his HUGE smile and her tears) and watching everyone party down at the reception.
Was there any Do it Yourself (DIY) projects? If so, can you describe them in detail?
Her bouquet was made of vintage brooches which her sister mom and grandmother collected the year prior to the wedding. On all the tables at the reception were old fashioned paper games ‘cootie catchers’ with trivia facts about the couple written on them and truth or dare statements for the guests to interact with each other during the reception. Her sister even found a little frame and put a picture of her late grandfather in it and pinned it to the bouquet.
What were the highlights from the ceremony & reception?
The couple walked down the isle to a recording of their late grandfather playing the trumpet and recessed after the ceremony to the same trumpet song the brides mother used at her wedding.
Was there a theme for the ceremony and reception?
She admitted that she didn’t really have a specific theme, but wanted everything to be elegant and classy yet simple.
What part of the ceremonies do you think was the most memorable for the bride and groom?Guests?
Probably hearing the music that meant so much to the bride’s family during the ceremony was very special and brought back many wonderful memories of family members no longer around and other very special days in the family’s history.
