Tell me about the couple’s choice of color palette.
When I first met with Ashley and asked about her wedding vision, one of the first things she mentioned was wanting ALL the colors. No monochrome bouquets or selective color palettes, just as many fabulous hues as possible! The bride chose softer shades to compliment the season and what we were left with can only be described as a taste of springtime in winter. Chrissy florals knocked it out of the park with her assortment of gathered blooms. From bud vases and asymmetrical centerpieces to a sprawling display on the venue’s show-stopping fireplace, the space was like something from a fairy tale.
What made the reception enjoyable?
Ashley + Jack knew they wanted their party to have something for everyone and planned out their space accordingly. The outdoor lawn of the Pensacola Country Club was tented and turned into party central, while a handsome cigar bar was set up across the way. Guests spent their time between the packed dance floor and relaxing with a stogie in hand.
What was unique about the bride and groom’s attire?
One of the things I always ask my brides to do during their gowning is to take a minute to admire and name their dress (if she doesn’t already have one.) Ashley took one look at her stunning Justin Alexander gown and the name “Ava” came to mind. It’s not often I get a bride with multiple looks, so why not give those names as well? After the cake was cut, Ashley slipped into and debuted her second fit, a kicky bridal pantsuit and embellished jean jacket combo named “Emma,” complete with pink heart-shaped glasses.
