What was unique about the bride and groom’s attire?
It is no secret that we LOVE a good veil here at AKW, but Abbey’s custom Sara Gabriel bridal wings may have just taken the number one spot on my list of favorite bridal accessories! They were the perfect finishing touch that took her gorgeous Anne Barge gown from elegantly understated to something completely unique and one-of-a-kind. I loved that she wasn’t afraid to do something bold to make her gown perfect for her!!
What was special about the first time the bride and groom saw each other?
Abbey and Matt chose to do a first look, so they could get the majority of their formal portraits finished prior to their ceremony. Typically, regardless of why my couples have chosen to do a first look, I like to create an atmosphere that is private and intimate so they can have a moment just to themselves. Abbey, however, wanted to share the moment with ALL of her nearest and dearest though, and all of her bridesmaids and parents watched with excitement just behind where we stood to photograph them. Instead of being the quiet, private moment we usually see, it was joyous and full of happy energy!!
Was there unique transportation?
There is nothing like a good golf cart getaway at the end of a Watercolor wedding, after all, it really is the best way to get around this idyllic 30a community. Abbey and Matt made their getaway even better though, with the help of Mingle 30a and their phenomenal balloon decor talents! I am completely obsessed with how cute their golf cart was!!
