Fairytale South Coast botanic garden wedding // ©2016 Sun & Sparrow Fairytale wedding photographer
Our wedding day came and went in a blink of an eye! I cherished those moments where time stood still and I could just breathe everything in and focus on just what our day was all about, Love. While getting ready for my day, I remember watching my mother get her hair and makeup done as I sat on my bed with one of my 13yr old dogs, petting her and listening to some Alicia keys was just the perfect start to my day! My heart just felt so overjoyed in that moment. Everything else was just a fast forward and pause kind of day. My favorite pause was our first look, my nerves were thru the roof and I knew as soon as I saw Edson I would not be able to control my emotions. Sure enough, one look at him and I just couldn’t hold back my tears, here in front of me was standing the love of my life moments before becoming my husband, it just felt so surreal! So many talks about getting married, to being engaged and then the crazy planning phase and the day was finally here! All my morning nerves were at ease after that, I felt so relaxed and ready to just enjoy our wedding day together and finally be married.
I’m a simple kind of girl! I love natural light and beautiful soft colors so from the get go I always knew I wanted a garden wedding. I didn’t want anything to take away from the natural beauty our venue had to offer. My amazing florist, Laura was the mastermind behind it all. She just knew exactly what made me happy and made my wedding a dream!
Brides to be, take it all in as much as you can! Do not worry about a single thing on the day of because something WILL go wrong or at least not how you planned and it’ll all be ok!
Enjoy it all as it comes and bask in all the love that surrounds you two. Truly treasure those moments alone with your husband because those come so little. People really weren’t kidding when they say your wedding day comes and goes, I am so glad I have all these beautiful images to help me relive such an amazing day in our lives.
