Ok! Now that the house is done, we can get back to important business. WEDDING PLANNING! I’m excited, nervous, happy, anxious, and stressed all at the same time. The last time we spoke of wedding news, we were planning on getting married in The Redwood Forest in San Francisco, CA and then hosting a reception back home in Atlanta. Well, that has now all changed. Plus, my wedding inspiration board is complete!
We have now decided that we will get married back home instead. It was becoming too costly and with the recent move, we really didn’t need to be adding to the stress of it. So, the wedding and the reception will now be on the same day, 10.21.2017, in Fairmount! We actually lucked up, our new neighbors have a beautiful pavilion that they held their daughter’s wedding, so we are planning to have it there. Also, my trusty sidekick/ bridesmaid/ cousin /event planner is my wedding planner, so it will be a beautiful event, to say the least. Above, is my wedding inspiration board. I am going for a rustic, Art Deco theme. So, imagine the roaring twenties on the countryside (that’s the best way I can explain it, lol) Decadent, earthy, eclectic, but with modern elements. I chose copper and rose gold as my metal tones, paired with a deep jewel tone green, burgundy, teal, and neutral earthy browns. I feel that this palette gives me the best of both worlds, both earthy and luxurious.
Though it has been a rollercoaster ride to get this much figured out, especially since we are running against the clock, I couldn’t be happier! I’m excited about our big day and spending it with our friends and family back home. Only 162 more days to go! What do you think of my wedding inspiration? What would your dream wedding be like? Any wedding tips from my fellow brides-to-be or recently married? I sure could use them!

Although the Redwood’s would’ve been an amazing setting, I believe it’s not as much about the location as it is about the day itself. So good for you taking it down a notch and using that pavilion instead! If I were to have a wedding of my dreams… jeez, can’t figure out where it’d be to be honest. It might as well be on the beach alone with me and my future partner or in a church filled with people. It must be so exciting however! 🙂
How exciting that you are getting married. I remember how stressful was our planning for a wedding and it actually turned really well and beautiful, everyone had fun and a tone of food. I remember I went to wedding of my husband’s best friend and we left super hungry because it wasn’t enough, also for alcohol. It is why we planned small wedding, but with open bar and a tone of food. I would advice you to do same, that people can have fun 😉 Wedding at redwood would be beautiful, sad that you changed your plans.

This is beyond exciting! Congrats on having accomplished so much and putting together a truly beautiful wedding inspiration board 🙂 It sounds like it will be an absolute dream! I got married two years ago so not too recent, but the best advice I can give is to never second guess your gut and trust yourself in making the wedding planning decisions. It’s *your* day after all! Good luck with the rest of planning and have fun!

I’m so excited for you and honestly it’s probably better you’re doing it all in the same location. It’ll just feel better overall. Loving the mood board and can’t wait to see what you come up with. Wedding planning is so much fun and a lot but in the end worth it

Ok Kayla I love your wedding theme!
I adore art deco styling and I also love nature so I think these two really well mesh together
I love your mood board and also have a huge wedding inspirational board pinned on Pinterest too.
Yes weddings cost so much these days for one day so it’s really good that you were able to find a place locally that’s affordable and having your cousin helping you must also take the stress out of things.
Good luck for the big day!
Girl, you got your wedding planning game going strong!! I loved every bit of my wedding planning process because I knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted it (I didn’t even hire any coordinator until the day of). Pinterest is basically my best friend hahaha. I really can’t wait to see your style and decor for the big day!!
Nothing gets me more excited than wedding related ANYTHING! I’m such a sucker for all of this! Ahh the wedding board you made is gorgeous, I can really see the theme you’re trying to achieve for your wedding. I agree, as much as it sounds nice to have it done somewhere else, it definitely is costly… but there something so comforting doing your wedding right at home don’t you agree? I’m so excited for you, it’s not too far away only in a few months! I can’t wait for you to do a wedding recap, now that’s something I’d love to read!
I have to congrats to your upcoming wedding .
I’m not married but one day I would like to happens on the ocean side or some luxury resort in the paradise .
Congratulations on your up coming marriage! I love every bit of the theme you’ve chosen! It definitely fits my style! It would have been beautiful to be married where you first planned but it seems that you are making a good choice by getting married back home! My husband and I got married in a little garden chapel in south GA with only close family in attendance. We wanted to just focus on us and I’m glad we did it that way. So it’s still my dream wedding! My wedding tip would be to roll with it. Remember what it’s about when something isn’t perfect!

This wedding board is giving me all the vibes! OMG, it’s going to look like a dream!
Congrats on your new house and I think I like the idea of having it back home 🙂
I think my dream wedding would be something small and simple by the beach
Thanks for sharing and good luck with everything!
Aww, wow! That’s fantastic. Congrats! I’m so happy for you! And your mood board looks fantastic. Having a wedding in the forest is so fascinating and so beautiful. Like a fairytale. But if the forest is not an option anymore, it’s great anyway that you decided to go for Art Deco. The roaring twenties and its fleur! To be honest, I can’t wait to see the photos! Please-please-please, keep up updated!

You definitely have some of my visions when it comes to the planning of your wedding! I am a big fan of a country style, outdoor wedding and the color scheme in general! My fiancé and I are also getting married in the fall (of 2018), but we’re planning on moving to TX first, then buying a house soon after. So many steps! Your process reminds me of what we’re trying to do. Keep pushing girl. You’ll be at the end in no time! 🙂
