Wedding Wednesday: Audrey & Nathan

We have a beautiful local wedding to share with you today, it’s especially fantastic because our own Audrey is married to a Nathan ….. so we are partial. No but really this one is darling and full of fun details and charming romance all at one of our favorite venues, the Salt Lake Hardware Building. Thanks to Green Apple Photography for sharing with us! Audrey {the bride} wrote to us to share her thoughts on the big day! I have always loved weddings! I kind of knew from the beginning what colors I loved and imagined for my wedding and based a lot off of our color scheme of gold, cream, and some light pinks and peaches. A lot of the decor was influenced by my love for antique pieces (pink depression glass!), chandeliers, and anything gold! Apart from that, I am in love with flowers, and knew I wanted a LOT of flowers incorporated into the wedding. Calie Rose did a remarkable job! I could hardly believe how pretty every floral piece was! My bouquet was a dream come true! It was really important to Nate and me that we get married with our friends and family. We chose Utah- the state we attended college and a good central location for our family and friends. I had seen the Salt Lake Hardware Building on Pinterest actually, and fell in love with the exposed brick and wooden beams. It is definitely Nate’s and my style. Because Nate and I live in Virginia, we wanted to be able to visit a lot with everybody that came to the wedding, both near and far! We used Refined Vintage Events for all of the vintage furniture at our reception to create a large seating area. The colors of the furniture matched our color palette perfectly and it was the most beautiful, dreamy lounge area you ever saw! My favorite moment, apart from marrying my best friend, was walking into the Hardware Building and seeing the final product of all the months of planning and coordinating. I could not have dreamed up a more beautiful wedding. It was everything I hoped for and I loved every detail. Lindsey Stewart of Green Apple Photography captured those details perfectly. How I cherish our wedding photos! I distinctly remember while sitting down at the dinner, looking around and just trying to take in how beautiful it all was, and just smiling while I looked out at the dining area at all of our friends and family. It was a perfect day. The preparation for the wedding was fun! My mom and I went to every antique story in Utah looking for pretty glass pieces so we could make our own cake plates and other decorations. Each of my three sisters made decorations for the reception as well that I will cherish forever.
