Aisle Perfect: Jessica + Michael

Kunbi O / Tuesday May 21, 2013
Get excited Ladies! We have not one but THREE Aisle Perfect weddings coming to the blog this week! Kicking off our week of inspiration perfection is this Houston, Texas wedding by Civic Photos. Jessica and Michael have known each other since middle school but never dated. They reunited after college and the rest as they say is history. The couple went for a rustic chic wedding with enough burlap and DIY to bring out the romantic in anyone. I love that a lot of their wedding details were created by family members and that the couple’s personal touch was present throughout. This wedding brought a smile to my face and you deserve one too. Enjoy!
From the Bride:

Our theme for the day was rustic and chic. The colors were ivory, blush, lace and burlap. We wanted a little bit of romance, but clean and casual with a flare of country, thus the burlap. We decided on the Gallery as our venue because it was unique with its lay out and romantic feel. Being able to have both the ceremony and reception at the Gallery was very convenient. The area could fit 220 people comfortably and close. I liked how everyone was close together and not spread out.

 There were so many special projects for our day as a lot of the details were DIY and handmade. From our DIY thumb print tree guestbook to the table runners, non-floral centerpieces and fabric/burlap roses handmade by our parents, the wedding really was a labor of love.

 Favorite Memory of the Day: There are so many… but one of my favorites is being announced as husband and wife, turning around and seeing everyone close to us so happy.

Advice from the Bride:

 Enjoy EVERY second! It goes by so fast. Take time to enjoy all of the hard work you put into this special day. Try to have someone set aside to help with the organization of the actual wedding day. Things will come up, time will disappear, and you(the bride) and family do not want to be stressed with small things. Spend money on the things that matter to you- the bride and groom, not what you think the guests want. Lastly, Photo Booth is a GREAT idea!!!
