Inspiration for your Wedding? nature and vintage romance (see inspiration board)

What Color Scheme where you trying to achieve? greens and beiges. I wanted a very relaxed natural feel to everything

Any DIY projects, you loved the most? My bridesmaids and I made a lot of things for the wedding. I think I had the most fun making the little favors. :)

Any Bridezilla moments while the planning process? Not really but I know I was definitely stressed. I am really happy that I mainly just gave my vendors inspiration and let them use their creativity and expertise instead of trying to control it all. 

Thoughts on the final outcome? I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding. Everything turned out exactly the way I wanted it to. :)

Are you glad its over? Yes. Planning the wedding was a pretty stressful time in my life but definitely worth all the work.  

Special thanks to Rachael and Ryan for sharing their special day with us!
