Wowza Romancers, it’s been a bit too long since my last full-fledged wedding feature! The holidays came and went and I am hunkering down and getting my life (and inbox) organized and ready for 2014! So what better way to kick off a brand new year, than with a wedding feature – full of love, laughter, and some awesome personalized details. Kristen & Tyler used bright colors in their wedding design and also inserted some seriously fun details – like exiting their reception to the Jurassic Park theme song (YES) and having Star Wars cake toppers! They used the theme “stuff we love” and so naturally their wedding was a perfect fit for us here at Capitol Romance. Let’s get it going.

Love this overview of their wedding from the photographer:
Kristin and Tyler crafted a wedding that was a complete reflection of them. From Kristin’s floral head wreath, to the Star Wars cake toppers (complete with matching veil and tie), to the variety of single-layer cake centerpieces on each table, to the overall theme that was simply “stuff we love”. Together they we calm, cool, and collected. Laid back and ready for whatever the day brought, just as long as they ended it together as a married couple.
My wedding dress didn’t have much pomp and I decided to go without a veil, and instead wore a crown of flowers – I think this was my favorite fashion decision because it brought some color into an otherwise neutral ensemble.
From the bride on their color choices:
We chose orange and yellow as our colors because they’re so bright and cheerful. We also chose the charcoal gray suits because Tyler’s favorite color to wear is charcoal, and it just happens to go really well with bright colors. We really liked the old-fashioned cut of the suits because they looked great and traditional while still being “out of the norm”.
