I thought this sweet, romantic pink wedding was perfect for the week of Valentine’s Day! I absolutely love that the couple chose a non-traditional venue! The ampitheatre gives all of their guests a unique view of the ceremony- so fun! And how cute is their cupcake tower? So sweet! Hope you enjoy this lovely budget wedding, with gorgeous photos by Brittany Anderson Photography! xoxo – Jessica

How many guests did you have?
What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?
Jeff and I are both in ministry so we incorporated that into the ceremony with singing, scripture reading, and my pastor gave a brief devotion before we said I do. Also instead of doing candle lighting, we took dirt from our parents properties and our property where were building our home and mixed it together, symbolizing a good foundation.
What was the biggest thing you did to save money?
Used what resources we had: family and friends!
What’s the best advice you have for planning your wedding now that you’re on the other side?
Don’t stress over what other people want for you. It’s your day and all about you as a couple. So let it be just that!
What was your biggest splurge?
The photography. You only do this once. Memories are priceless.
What was your favorite detail?
The wedding ceremony itself was lovely. I loved the music, flowers, country decorating, scripture reading, dirt ceremony, and poem written by my previous pastor who was there when I was born. Every aspect was so personal.
What is the most memorable moment of your day
When my pastor said you may now kiss your bride. I was finally a Mrs!
