When we heard from Amylynn last July, our FIRST reaction was "now THIS is an OAK bride"!! We were thrilled with her story, connected by our love for the Lord, and excited to get started. We've written about Tanner and Amylynn's story several times in the past, so this time, I want to focus on her WEDDING DAY!!

Amylynn selected a palate of pinks and whites, with a request for a white bouquet. We selected a combo of gorgeous ranunculus, garden roses, astilbe and scabiosa with olive leaves for an accent. Pops of color were added to the bridesmaids bouquets with amazing double tulips and pink ranunculus.
One thing I love to do with my brides is design every element of their wedding around their desired look, so we also created custom invitations and programs with a logo designed especially for her!
Spinelli's Venue offered a beautiful backdrop for a beautiful ceremony. After walking her down the aisle, Amylynn's dad surprised the bride and groom with a song! Later, at the reception, the groom did the same! One thing is for sure, this family is FULL of unconditional, raw love and the desire to make each other happy.
One request that the bride had for me was to work some cotton boles into her wedding SOMEHOW! So, we created a guest book arrangement that was full of the perfect white cotton.
The most fun part of planning weddings is looking for a way that incorporate something unique into the day. We have used caricature artists in the past, and they are always a hit with the guests! This caricature artist, from Jay Garcia Magic, came with an extra special treat. . .Jay Garcia came along and performed some on site magic for the guests during the cocktail hour!
While there are too many amazing photographs from Allison Jeffers to post, these show a glimpse of what turned out to be an amazing weekend. As this wedding was a destination wedding, it brought it's own challenges, but in the end, the vendors, the venue and the people in Texas, as well as both families (from Hawaii, DC, and lots of other states!!!) were delightful to work with. Regardless of WHERE a wedding is, it is all about the sacred ceremony of joining two lives before God.
We are honored to have been part of Amylynn and Tanner's wedding, and know that their "forever" will be amazing. We can't wait to see what God has in store for them and the future they create. Much love -
