GSS Wedding Inspiration Board :: Navy Blue & Lavender

There’s just something so serene and soothing about this inspiration board… Maybe it’s the soft hue of Lavender against the dark Navy… We’re not sure what it is, but we’re LOVING this Navy Blue and Lavender board!

GSS Wedding Inspiration Board :: Robin’s Egg Blue & Rose

Happy Monday, Lovelies!!!  It’s Easter Week!!!  We just love the soft pastel shades associated with Easter.  So we thought we’d make a pretty pastel inspiration board using Robin’s Egg Blue and Rose.  Normally when you hear the color combination blue and pink you might associate it with a baby shower, not  a wedding.  But if you choose the right shades and/or hues of these colors, you can create the most beautiful palette for your wedding.  This Robin’s Egg Blue and Rosey Pink board is so feminine and classy…  And it’s a far cry from the baby blues and bubble gum pinks!

GSS Featured Wedding :: Amber & Brad’s Country Chic Wedding :: Miranda Marrs Photography

Happy Hump Day, Lovelies!!!  Today’s fabulous featured wedding comes from Miranda of Miranda Marrs Photography, a Gainesville, Texas based wedding photographer.   She has been so sweet and very accommodating to GSS on this feature. Thank you! This wedding is very special to GSS, as Tamra is good friends with the bride and her sister!

Brad and Amber were married in McKinney, Texas on May 21, 2011.  Amber was kind enough to answer a few questions for us:

How did you and  Brad meet? Brad and I had mutual friends in college, and one night he came in to the restaurant where I worked and I was their waitress. He asked for my number and the rest is history.


How long have you been together? We have been together a little over 4 years.

How did Brad propose? Brad wrote “Will you marry me” in the steam on the bathroom mirror. Ha!

What sold you on your wedding venue? We searched forever for a little white chapel that had a reception hall and outdoor area all in one space and when we found Chestnut Square it was a perfect fit.

Your dress is gorgeous, where did you get it and how did you know it was “the one”? It’s made by Allure Bridals.  I found it at Mii’s Bridal in Dallas, TX and as soon as I put it on I knew I loved it from the shape to the lace it had everything I had been looking for.

What was your “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue”? My something old was my grandmother’s hankie, My something new was my dress and shoes, my something borrowed was the garter my mom and sister wore at their weddings, and my something blue was my headpiece and earrings.

How did you choose your wedding color palette? I had the hardest time sticking to a color pallette. I finally fell in love with shades of blue and brown when Brad bought his boots for the wedding which were chocolate brown with blue stitching.

Side Note:  Amber chose the beautiful wedding color palette of Chocolate Brown and Cornflower Blue.  For more wedding inspiration using these colors, click  here!

What song did you dance to for your first dance?  “Just By Being You” by Steel Magnolia.

Do you have any advice for brides that are in the planning process? Remember it is YOUR day. We had a hard time trying to please everyone and I worried about everyone one else with every decision.  Finally, Brad reminded me that it was OUR day and we were the ones that would replay the moments millions of times in our heads so we did what we wanted and could not be happier.

What was your favorite part of your big day? It is really hard to just think of one thing but I am so glad we did a “First Look.” That time where Brad and I had a few moments alone to see each other was perfect part of a hectic afternoon and to have those pictures is great.
