Alex + Justin- Shabby chic wedding with a latin flair featured in Style me pretty
I was so excited to walk into meet the bride for the first time, as Alex’s father had surprised her with a “wedding planner” to make her life stress free and a wonderful gift for a father to give to his daughter. who doesn’t love a surprise wedding gift. Having met her parents I knew that Alex and i were gonna have so much fun planning from the minute we sat down. We had an amazing time planning this Romantic shabby chic theme with all the DIY elements we could find. We spent hours on Pinterest, Instagram and Etsy!!! Im sure the UPS driver loved her.
With simple lanterns, with romantic candles, created a beautiful wedding centerpiece. Meanwhile the tables were set with crisp ivory linen and touches of blush and White. Touches of wood, pearls and roses, spread through the reception, created the perfect shabby chic night. The DIY favors were burlap bags of the couples favorite kettle corn. Custom made coffee cup wraps. The cake was made by mom and yes! She did make the sugar peonies herself. More DIY, the groom made the dessert arch and the chandelier was just the perfect touch.
While the bride wore a sparkle fest with her Jimmy Choo heels, they were Prince charming’s dream. We all cried when the groom sang a song he wrote just for the bride. From her wedding gown to her sparkler exit, the whole night shined bright.
