WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR WEDDING? // From the Bride: We were really lucky to have a wedding venue that needed nothing added to it. Twin Oaks Garden Estate is what I imagine the Secret Garden would have looked like in real life. It became the inspiration for any choices we made (after the venue was booked), whether it be the color of the bridesmaid dresses, our air plant favors or all the eucalyptus leaves our florist used.
WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE/FAVORITE PART ABOUT YOUR WEDDING DAY? // From the Groom: Finally being able to see Michelle in her dress was like a dream come true. Also, having everyone all there together in one place was one of the best things for me. Everyone we care about in one spot. From the Bride: When I was walking down the aisle with my dad, I saw that Nathan was crying and I wanted nothing more than to get up there quick so I could wipe his tears away.
WHY WAS PHOTOGRAPHY IMPORTANT TO YOU AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE SUN & SPARROW? // From the Groom: Photography and videography was a huge thing for us. We had to properly document a day that we knew would be over in a flash (pun intended). Quality pictures and videos that will last us a lifetime. From the Bride: In the search for our perfect photographers and videographers, I instantly fell in love with the way Tiffani and Ellie use and see outdoor lighting and colors. I don’t think there were any other contenders that I was so quickly drawn to. Add on that they are some of the nicest, hard working people I have ever met and that could only be a recipe for success!
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR BRIDES WHO ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PLANNING PROCESS? // From the Bride: There were a lot of small details that I put effort into that not one person noticed. There were also a lot of small details that I forgot to take care of that ALSO never got noticed! At the end of the day, your guests are there to see you and your future husband say “YES” to that forever kinda love. So don’t freak out, that will be wasted energy that you can store for dancing the night away!
