Two country lovers got hitched! Today we’re sharing a rustic green white and black wedding in Innisfail, Alberta with loads of modern details. Captured by Kelsy Nielson Photography, you’ll love the sweet ‘stache’ stationery at the reception, the bold design for the backdrop and the vintage auto junkyard which made for some pretty awesome photos.
What was your favorite moment from your wedding day?
As we were announced husband and wife, and we turned to look at our family and friends. The song “Good Life” was playing in the background as we walked down the aisle, and I could just feel the love and happiness radiating from everyone. I was smiling like a fool and crying the whole time.
Another one was When my Dad gave me away, Curtis took my hands and whispered, “I blew out my pants”. I thought he was joking, and trying to get me to stop crying. I found out after the ceremony that his suit had been ripped from crotch to knee when he bent down to pick up his niece, our flower girl, as she got to the end of the aisle. You can see the draping pant leg in a couple of the photos, haha.
What was your inspiration behind your overall wedding decor and colour choices?
Curtis and I are both country kids, and wanted to keep the theme simple with a country feel, which is why we chose white as one of our colors. We also love the outdoors, and felt that green was a fresh, outdoors-y color. It’s also my absolute favorite color, so I think Curtis just assumed it would be part of our decor.
Do you have any advice for other brides-to-be?
DELEGATE!!! I had several family members and friends ask if there was anything that they could do to help out the day of, so I assigned everyone with tasks. It was so nice that I didn’t have to worry about anything the day of, because everything was taken care of.
