Get ready to be captivated by an elegant wedding with soft blue tones that is simple but yet so stunning, this small celebration was documented beautifully at The Mill at Fine Creek. Alongside it’s beauty is great wisdom, below you’ll find the couple gave a piece of advice that spoke volumes to me about making wedding day choices that are valuable to YOU!
“This was a beautiful smaller wedding restricted in size and postponed from the original date (due to Covid-19). Still, it was chic and elegant with minimal reception details beautiful florals and gowns. The best part though would probably be the brass knuckles for each of the bridesmaids, pretty damn cool if you ask me. The groom wore a midnight blue tuxedo while the bride wore an half embroidered half lighter fabric which often appeared windswept. As the golden light of the setting sun shown on them while walking through the field of hops we closed their coverage with some beautiful moments which was the perfect end to their day.” – David Abel
Any special ways you incorporated your family or family history into your wedding day? “We surprised everyone, including our family, by having my uncle officiate the wedding. He is a show of his own, so everyone thought he was kidding when he stood up from his seat as we pretended to wait for the officiant to arrive. We can clearly remember my aunt and mom going through the full range of emotions- annoyed that he thought he was being funny, shocked that he really was our officiant, and full of happy tears when she realized we had chosen him for such an important job. The ceremony was full of laughs, just as we wanted it to be.”
What was your favorite part about planning your wedding? “It was so awesome to have our wedding at a venue that not only speaks for itself, but is so “us.” I worked on a photoshoot there five years ago and knew from the minute I stepped onto the grounds that it would be our wedding venue because it has such a distinct, natural beauty of its own. We had been so excited about the venue for five years and didn’t have to do much of anything to make it perfect for us or to wow our guests.”
If you had one piece of advice for other couples, what would it be? “Make sure every aspect of your wedding day is valuable to you. Keep it classy but leave out the traditions that don’t suit your style and incorporate things that are special to you. It’s a wedding, not a performance.”
What is the most honest thing you can say about love? “No matter what you’ve seen or heard, love shouldn’t be difficult.”
