When you’re headed to Napa for your honeymoon, why not get the trip started early and have it serve as your wedding inspiration!? That’s what Kellye and Sean did for their Maryland wedding ceremony, captured by Timmester Photography. They held a traditional Catholic ceremony in Maryland before moving to their country club reception, filled with vino-inspired details! But, you’ll have to come back later this morning for that!
From Kellye: Our wedding was traditional with a romantic feel. We both love wine and planned to honeymoon in Napa, so we used that as inspiration for our color palette. The colors were vino (deep purple), sage green, and ivory.
We also cut lace from the sleeve of my moms wedding dress for the florist to wrap the stems of my bouquet. That was probably the most special detail.
I was in 6 weddings in 2012 (the year of our wedding) and attended a total of 12 weddings. It was an expensive year for my friends and I, so I really wanted to keep costs down for the bridesmaids. One way that I ensured that was with the bridesmaid dresses. I ended up finding them at Ann Taylor online and was able to find a 40% off coupon code and free shipping for the girls to use. The dresses were true to size and were super cute all while being affordable.
My favorite memory is having all of the people that we love and care about all in one place. It was truly an amazing feeling. We felt so loved. One person that could not be there was my grandmother who is not well. The day before the wedding my Aunt gave me my grandmother’s wedding ring as my something old. I got to wear it on my wedding day with my rings and have not taken it off since.
