Memorable Weddings: Keeping it Classy Post Covid
One thing we love to report on is how couples meet the challenges of planning a wedding and do it with grace and class. Lauren and Brian are a great example of this. They got married in August of 2020 after having to postpone their wedding due to COVID. Despite all of the frustrations of finding a new date, paying extra fees, and cutting their guest list; they still managed to make the most out of their day. Skys the Limit Production shared their story with us along with the stunning images to follow.
A Unique and Unforgettable Wedding
Lauren’s smile. That’s what people remember about Lauren’s wedding, that her smile and lively spirit were contagious. Every wedding is going to have its challenges and the present times don’t make it any easier. But having an attitude of gratitude and an appreciation for the moment makes it memorable in a good way, not just for you but for all your loved ones around you.
They also had this adorable way the bride and groom exchanged gifts just before the ceremony. There was this old-fashioned pulley system within the building. Brian placed the gift for his bride on the platform and pulled on the ropes to send it up to her bridal suite. He could hear Lauren open her gift. Sarah from Skys the Limit Production said, “There was nothing like seeing Brian smile while he overheard Lauren’s reactions.” We love how they built this moment into their day just for each other.
A Vintage Theme
Planning a wedding is like directing a movie. Francis Ford Coppola said “…always try to discover what the theme of the movie is in one or two words. Every time I made a film, I always knew what I thought the theme was, the core, in one word…The reason it’s important to have this is because most of the time what a director really does is make decisions. All day long: Do you want it to be long hair or short hair? Do you want a dress or pants? Do you want a beard or no beard? There are many times when you don’t know the answer. Knowing what the theme always helps you.” Lauren and Brian clearly chose a vintage or antique theme. The theme played throughout the furniture in the venue: Avalon Legacy Ranch, Brian’s suspenders and bowtie, the pearls draping down the back of Lauren’s dress, her deep red lips and her gorgeous birdcage blusher veil.
Wait, What’s a Birdcage Blusher Veil?
If you want that vintage bride look, you should know. A birdcage veil is a shorter veil that covers part of the face. They became the rage in the 1940s when there was a fabric shortage due to the war. They fall around the face in a birdcage like shape that can be seen through. A blusher veil means that it covers the face until the groom brings it back to prepare for that holy matrimonial kiss. Now it represents modesty and purity but back in the day it was believed to protect the bride from evil spirits.
What Have We Learned?
Pick a theme and roll with the punches. Let the music match your dress as you walk down the aisle. Like the way Lauren chose a song that cast her as the starlet in a black and white film. But most importantly, smile baby. It’s your memories that you're making.
Oh, and hire an incredible team to make you look great, like the good people at…
