I just can’t get enough of the use of gold in weddings. For today’s wedding captured by Jill Coursen Photography, gold is paired with shades of pink and boy, does it look good! With the help of Jennifer Bergman Weddings, Shannon and Nathan, were able to create a wedding that was romantic and elegant with hints of vintage elements. Enjoy.
What was your favorite moment from your wedding day?
We loved our entire day – it’s hard to pick just one moment! I loved the feeling of walking down the aisle towards my future husband, surrounded by so many of our family and friends there to help us celebrate. It was such an overwhelming feeling knowing we were so lucky to be loved by each and everyone of them. Also, the speeches were a roller coaster of emotions and memories – I rememberlaughing so hard I was crying! The speeches are my favourite part of every wedding I attend.
How did you two meet?
We originally met in while I was in High School through a mutual friend, but it wasn’t until a couple years later when we really connected. I had been out celebrating my 19th Birthday with my friends and Nathan just happened to be there too. We started to talk more after that evening and it wasn’t long before we started dating. Almost 9 years later to the date we were married!
What was your inspiration behind your overall wedding decor and colour choices?
We wanted our wedding to feel romantic with some vintage flair, while at the same time keeping it streamlined and simple. Gold and ivory were used as our main colours to evoke elegance and romance. I have always loved the colour pink so we decided to incorporate touches of it in the flowers, the sweet table and lighting.
Do you have any advice for other brides/grooms-to-be?
I know everyone says this but it’s so true….enjoy every moment of the day! Take it all in because before you know it the day is over! If issues come up (and they will), try not to worry as things will work out!
