Real Wedding Wednesday: Justine and Brian

Happy Wedding Wednesday my fellow wedding lovers! Tilley here, bringing you this week’s beautiful wedding that joined Justine to Brian. Can you believe her ring above?! Lets dive in!
The pair met while Justine was in nursing school. She says they laugh when looking back because neither one of them thought it would be serious and here we are talking about their everlasting love!

They had their first look inside the Hermitage Hill’s stable. “I knew we would both be emotional the first time we saw each other on our wedding day and wanted to spend that moment with us and our close family.” said Justine. Y’all know I am a first look advocate so I couldn’t agree more!

Would you look at Brian’s face as he see’s her?! Priceless and full of such sweetness.

Also, nothing beats having your group photos done so you can go straight to the party after saying “I do!”

Justine looked amazing in her lace, v-neck gown.

Her hair looked especially stunning in a curled updo that allowed the amazing back detail of her dress to show!

The ceremony took place outdoors.

Justine’s father escorted her to Brian at the end of the aisle…

…where they said their vows and sealed forever with a kiss!

Inside, the reception sparkled with gold accents.

Tables were decorated with blooms and small gold votive candles. It was simple but stunning. Proof that less can be more!

Congratulations Justine and Brian!

From the Bride:

What was your favorite detail of the day? “The only detail that mattered that day was that everyone I love and care about was there to celebrate. My grandmother who just passed away was able to make it to see me walk down the aisle as well as everyone else that means so much to my husband and I.”

What advice would you give to a bride to be? “Keep is simple. The more involved and detailed you get the more room for things “to go wrong.” No one remembers what color your napkins were or what your water glasses looked like. They remember the company and having a great time dancing the night away. Also in my head, as long as myself and my husband were there to say I do nothing could go wrong. Enjoy the day because it goes too quick.”
