Happy Friday, Lovelies!!! Today’s fabulous featured wedding was submitted to us by Ryan Price of Ryan Price Photography, a Texas based wedding photographer. Ryan has been so sweet and accommodating to GSS and we have truly enjoyed working with him on this feature.
Kelsey and Bryan were married on August 28, 2010 at Amber Springs in Montgomery, Texas. What a beautiful venue! Kelsey was kind enough to answer a few questions for us:
How long have you and Bryan been together? We’ve been together for 4 and a half years.
What sold you on your wedding venue? I wanted something outdoors and rustic but that had an indoor venue for the reception that could be used as a back up in case of bad weather.
Your dress is gorgeous, where did you get it and how did you know it was “the one”? Honestly, this is a funny question. I hate shopping and especially trying on clothes. As excited as I was to get married, finding a wedding dress still fit into that shopping/trying on clothes category. We had 3 dress appointments one day to look at dresses. The one I picked was at the first store, and it was maybe the third dress I tried on. I knew it was “the one” cause it had pockets, everyone loved it, it was reasonably priced, and I didn’t want to shop anymore. I canceled the other appointments and stopped looking. Done & done! Haha!
What was your “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue”? One of my bridesmaids gave me a bracelet on the wedding day that was blue, I borrowed another one of my bridesmaid’s rings that was borrowed and old, and then everything else I had was new.
How did you choose your wedding color palette? My favorite colors are shades of blue and I wanted summer colors… I didn’t really stick to one color palette. I just went with whatever I liked and looked good.
What song did you dance to for your first dance? “Everything” by Michael Buble.
Do you have any advice for brides that are in the planning process? Everything can get done… even at the last minute. I waited until about 3 weeks before to do cakes, flowers & many other little tasks… more expensive doesn’t always mean better. The best thing I did was completely stop stressing and worrying about anything a few days before. What’s done is done and what’s not isn’t but you might as well enjoy yourself.
What was your favorite part of your big day? Oh gosh, I don’t have any complaints at all… the whole thing was my favorite. There were a few things that I was really pleasantly surprised by… my DJ went over and beyond his normal DJ duties, making sure the wedding party and my family always had a drink or food if they wanted it. He made sure Bryan and I sat down and ate something. If he hadn’t gone and made us a plate, I would have never eaten my own food! The wedding planner just made everything so easy and laid back for my family and I.
