For this real wedding spotlight, I am thrilled to get to share the details of my own wedding with you all. We made every decision with love, and I couldn’t be happier with the way it all turned out. After all, our wedding is the reason I decided to start this business! Take a look at the highlights of our Huntsville wedding below.
You can say I was a very traditional bride. Our wedding ceremony took place in the beautiful, historic First United Methodist Church in downtown Huntsville, Alabama. This church is very special to me because it was also where my sister got married. So, I wanted the invitation suite and program to portray the same traditionalism. That’s why I went very classic with a formal script font and no extra colors or illustrations.
Our ceremony program was a small booklet program with an old venue illustration of the church on the front cover. Then, we tied the finished product together with an ivory ribbon. Truly, the programs were one of my favorite details from our wedding that I will always cherish!
We held our wedding reception at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. This gorgeous space really speaks for itself! I created a guestbook sign and coordinating bar menus for the reception to have a few coordinating paper good elements.
I still went very simple with the decor because I wanted to let the beautiful venue speak for itself. We played up the black accents in the room and added in touches of gold. I didn’t plan on having a distinct theme, but as the planning went on a subtle bird theme evolved. There were bird cages holding candles and small gold birds on tables. Although you can’t see it in the picture, the wedding cake is sitting on a bird bath.
The groom’s cake table added such a fun element to the reception. We wanted some aspect of our wedding to highlight our Auburn background which is the reason behind the Auburn Tiger cake toppers. And they perfectly matched the Auburn plate we got as an engagement present!
Our wedding reception was one of the first in this new facility, and I still can’t get over how stunning it is. The details of our wedding came together beautifully. Ultimately, we created a special day to celebrate our marriage with all of our friends and family.
