4 Points Farm in Sevierville, Tennessee is where we are headed today and what a treat we have in store lovely ones! The gorgeous Sidney and Trevor were married there on April 13th 2018 on the most stunning Spring day. Being Sidney’s favourite season, it was a natural choice and the colour scheme and blooms were inspired by the time of year too. Think delicate pastel hues of blush pink, teamed with a navy blue accent colour. It works just so beautifully.
The florals are just outstanding and the David Austin Roses really stole the show in the fluffy bouquets and flower arrangements. The semi naked cake is one of the prettiest I’ve laid eyes on and the outfits just perfectly suited to the occasion. I mean everyone looks just stunning! So much love, so many smiles, what a delight.
Huge thanks goes to Ashley Spangler Photography for sharing these dreamy photographs with us.
My favourite season is spring so I knew from the start I wanted the wedding to be during a spring month. We were going for a garden theme because I love flowers and it’s perfect for the spring months. The colours we chose were blush and navy blue and we did work some accent colours in the decorations. The colours worked so well together! It was elegant, yet simple and classic.
The Details & Decor
Almost every table at the reception had a different centrepiece. I love when the tables are different yet similar. I think it makes the decorations really stand out. Our guest book was actually my Husband’s ideas. We took a large picture frame from Hobby Lobby that had a canvas type background and hot glued the letter “H” in the centre. People had the opportunity to sign this and we are going to hang it in our house! We wanted something that we could look at every day.
Flowers were a big part in the wedding planning process. We used a blush flower as the main flower called a David Austin Rose that is absolutely beautiful. It went along well with the colours of the wedding too. We also used other pastel colours as well as greenery and texture flowers. Different types of greenery were used to decorate the tables along with flowers that matched the bridal bouquets.
My Grandfather was our officiant for the wedding which really meant a lot to me. After the wedding we had a “Guest Mad lib” which was pretty fun! They got to fill out a questionnaire about their enjoyment, where they were travelling from, and what they really came for (food, cake, couple).
I’ve always had an idea of what I wanted my wedding dress to look like. I went in the bridal store looking for something completely different than what I walked out with. I tried on different styles of dresses but the one I found, I just knew was the one. I loved that the dress was beaded along the body and the bottom of the dress was simple. I knew for my jewellery I wanted it to be simple because my dress had a lot going on already. I just chose a simple silver/pearl necklace as well as pearl stud earrings. For my hair I knew I wanted a low, loose bun. It turned out great!
I met my fiancé when he came in to a sporting goods store that I was working at in Alabama where we both went to school. He had actually already graduated and I was still in school, but we had the same degree and didn’t even know it. He stayed in the store for about 2 hours talking. A few weeks later I decided to add him on Facebook and the rest is history!
My fiancé had actually moved back to Tennessee from Alabama so I was visiting him for a weekend. I had told him that I wanted to go out to eat somewhere. He told me to make a reservation and I jokingly suggested Ruth’s Chris because I know it’s on the expensive side. He thought it was a great idea and told me to call and make a reservation. On our way to the restaurant he surprised me with 24 red roses and I started getting nervous! Haha. Once we got to the restaurant we went inside and they actually took him to the side to make sure our table was okay because he told them I got cold easily, but really he was telling them the plan. So when we get seated we are at a table overlooking the river and it was beautiful. Once we finished our meal he came up with an excuse to leave the table. We he came back, he looked a little nervous. He asked me to stand up and I hesitated, but stood up. That is when he got down on one knee and popped the questions. They always say you don’t remember what they say during the proposal and I found that to be true! Hahaha!
The most special moment of the day was when my Husband saw me for the first time walking down the aisle. He was totally against the first look and wanted the first time he saw me the day of the wedding to be when I was walking down the aisle towards him. The reaction he had when he saw me was something I will always remember. It was so worth the wait.
Advice For Other Couples
Just remember that the day is about what you and your future Husband want. It’s nice to have the opinion of others, but in the end it’s your day and all that really matters is that your have it the way you have always dreamed it would be.
