Blush. There is not a more feminine, romantic color out there, and we are swooning and crooning over Alexis and Jesse’s pink-infused wedding. From the bridesmaid dresses, to the floral arrangements, to the accessories, this bride nailed this ultra-sweet style in her Watters ‘Sonara’ gown, that she purchased at Lovely! Immaculately photographed by Elisabeth Millay, this sunny country wedding will have you wanting to hold on to summer for just a tad longer.
Lovely: Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
Alexis: I wanted an overall look that would complement the historic house and gardens where we were getting married. When I saw my dress at Lovely, I wasn’t sure if I even liked it, but Cassandra convinced me to try it on. As soon as I did, I knew it was perfect. I particularly loved the floral and lace details on the dress – it was so romantic, but still provided a modern fit.
Lovely: What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
Alexis: The venue was the most important choice for us. Our wedding was held at a historic bed and breakfast on a 300-acre farm with several gardens. Once we chose the venue, the details just fell into place, because there was a specific look that we could build upon. We placed a lot of emphasis on the flowers and vintage elements, such as custom signs and homemade jam favors to create an elegant “country” feel.
Lovely: What was the most memorable moment?
Alexis: I can’t say there was one specific moment, because the best part of our wedding was that we were able to spend three full days at the bed and breakfast. We were fortunate that the sheer length of the wedding allowed us to spend so much quality time with family and friends from all over the country, creating countless smaller memorable moments.
Lovely: If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
Alexis: Make sure to hire vendors that you have confidence in and are comfortable with. Then, just trust that they will take care of everything, so you can relax and enjoy! Jesse and I couldn’t have had more fun at our wedding, which was due in large part to the fact that we spent the entire time talking, laughing and dancing, instead of trying to manage the day.
