I chose a deep red for the bridesmaid dresses...one for the wonderful crimson color...Roll Tide...and two they were included in an Amazing sale at David's Bridal for only $89 or 99 (I can't remember)...you can't beat that! I had 7 bridesmaids, 2 are my sisters, 2 are great friends from grade school, 3 are my best friends from college (and 1 is now my sister-in-law too). A great group of girls that I treasure so much in my life. I also had 5 flower girls (all mine and Zach's nieces) and 1 ring Bearer (our nephew).
Since the town was so small, we all walked to the Church. I loved this picture....our take on the Abby Road Rendition.
My dreamy husband. This is one of my favorite pictures from the whole day!
All the groomsmen and our little ring bearer.
The flowers I loved. They included calla lilies, hydrangeas, roses and coffee berries. My bouquet also included Tulips....my absolute favorite flower. The boutonnieres were mini calla lilies...not too girly which was a request from Zach.I didn't decorate the church really because it didn't need it in my opinion. It was simple and I found that to be absolutely gorgeous. The church had stained glass windows down the aisles and the decorations the church had up, I liked and were free! Always a plus.The reception was at Wolf Mountain Vineyards...I am quite the wine enthusiast. The staff at the vineyard was phenomenal and I didn't have a care in the world once we arrived. They took care of everything! The dance floor was on the back deck of the vineyard looking out over the mountains. It was beautiful. The food was delicious (even though I didn't get to eat it until afterwards). The cake was designed by a local baker. I would suggest anyone getting married to always start local, rather that big names. The cake was so good and for a whopping price of $250. If you haven't noticed, I am also loved to save a pretty penny anywhere I could.
