This rain is KILLING me, but at least I’ve finally gotten my allergies under control. Looking forward to seeing the sun again, and trying not to think about how grim the outlook is on COVID trends :( New Federal leadership cannot come soon enough … trying to focus on happy thoughts and happy couples.
With the wedding being planned in only 21 days it turned out perfect. It was simple but also elegant. Even though, it was in an outdoor park setting, we still did all the traditional elements of the wedding day –the first dance, bouquet toss and cake cutting.
We loved the simplicity and natural beauty of the park. One of the reasons we fell in love with Turner Station Park is the waterfront view. We thought it would make an awesome view for the ceremony and background for our wedding photos, but mother nature had a way of changing our plans. Since it rained earlier in the day, and the grass was wet, we had to go to plan B and have the ceremony under the pavilion. Following the ceremony, we were still able to get our photos with the waterfront view.
We knew that we wanted to incorporate our favorite colors into the wedding. My favorite color is rose gold, and Maurice’s favorite is navy blue. Naturally, the colors together made a beautiful combination. We kept the decorations very simple with navy blue tablecloths, sequined rose gold runners, navy blue napkins, and the silver charger plates gave it an elegant pop. A DIY element that we added were the navy blue, rose gold, and silver wedding tissue paper flower balls that hung from the ceiling. They were an easy and inexpensive way to spruce up the pavilion and add in more of our wedding colors.
The most special part of my wedding day was reading our vows to each other. We wrote our own vows and it just felt so romantic sharing with family and friends the real story of how we met and the funny start to our relationship. I think reading our vows just brought a more personal touch to the ceremony.
