holly + bryson {married}

We are seriously so blessed to have such amazing brides, and Holly is one of the reasons I get to say that!  This lady was such a beam of sunlight any time she came into the shop! Working with her was such a dream and we looked forward to her visits every time.  Even when she got a little nervous with her dress choice and had to come in and revisit her dress, she was such a dear, and the addition of her beautiful sash made her fears melt away and as you can see the result was nothing short of perfection!  

Congrats Holly and Bryson!!! We wish you years of love, laughter and adventure!

From The Bride: 

I wanted my wedding to be like a fairytale, with pastel colors and pure elegance and romance! I wanted to feel like a princess, marrying my prince charming. One of the major themes of the wedding was pearls. My grandmother (Nanni) who passed away a few years ago was so elegant and LIVED in pearls. We had such a special relationship, so not having her there was hard for me.  I thought it was a cool way to incorporate a touch of her into the day by having pearls in the bouquets and the arrangements! I even had pearls on my dress. My favorite part of the reception was the big pink tutu skirt on the cake table! It was over the top princess and I loved it. Carrie, at Merci Bouquet, created the skirt and also did draping at the reception! Amy at Merci Bouquet did the flowers. They were the best.

Bryson and I wanted to have our ceremony at our church, where we met.  I sing and he plays guitar so we met volunteeringon the student ministry worship team (this was when we were out of high school – we were just volunteering in that area)J Now I sing regularly on the adult worship team and he is the pastoral intern there. Having our ceremony there was so important since our relationship with the Lord means so much to us and it was where our relationship began.

One unique fact about the ceremony is my mom made ALL the décor, even the flowers on stage and going down the aisles! She spent so much time and effort to transform the sanctuary into a dreamland!  Merci bouquet made the boutonnieres, bouquets, and did all the reception flowers and décor!Another fun fact is that when we kissed, fireworks went off on the screen behind us at church!
