Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
I fell in love with the ethereal drapery of the gown and chose my accessories to compliment my 1920s engagement ring. My look was inspired by the natural elegance of the venue, my family’s farm.
What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
It was most important to Christopher and I that are wedding be a relaxed, fun time for all involved. We wanted it to be a reflection of us and we worked very hard to make every detail special and unique to our style. Featuring my Grandma’s homemade jam as wedding favors and using antiques and handmade items from around the farm added a personal touch.
What was the most memorable moment?
The most memorable moment was my husband and I driving from the ceremony to the reception in my Grandfather’s restored 1953 Ford F350 pickup truck with the windows rolled down. It was a beautiful day and the perfect opportunity for us to relax before the excitement of the reception.
If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
I would encourage brides to not let the wedding become a production. At the end of the day it isn’t about the perfect tablescape, entrance song or floral arrangement…it’s about the commitment to be made and celebrating with those you love most. Also, remember that you can’t control the weather! Plan for the worst and hope for the best, so that you can relax in the days leading up to your wedding instead of stalking the weather channel!

This year the Emmy Awards had so many amazing fashion moments, from bright colors to jewel tones, slinky silhouettes to ballgowns. Here are a few of our absolute favorites!
Metallic was definitely having its moment! We are getting so much inspiration from these ladies and hoping that our designers do too!
Fourteen year old Kiernan Shipka is giving her fellow actresses a run for their money! This darling fashionista is certainly one to watch!
Another trend that totally gets our vote is red hot! We think brides should start hopping on this train!
And one of our absolute faves Lauren Parsekian Paul looked ready to walk down the aisle instead of the red carpet! Plus she comes complete with groom by her side (her handsome hubby Aaron Paul!)
