It’s family time on this week’s blog feature – we’re revisiting the amazing day back in October where my brother Matt got married to his beautiful bride, Kelsey! Now, I’m realllly biased over here but this was my favorite wedding of the entire year. 🙂 The weather was amazing, the food was great, and we gained a new member of our family! Doesn’t get much better than that. Scroll down to see more images of their big day by Abby Weeden Photography!
Kelsey and Matt met back in college, after going on a trip with some mutual friends their senior year. They dated for a year and a half when Matt knew he wanted to propose. The proposal took place at The Pick Inn, where Matt set up a fall picnic for the two of them on the property with hay bales, pumpkins, and lanterns. The moment kelsey arrived to the picnic site he couldn’t wait any longer and got down on one knee!
Kelsey’s vision for her wedding day was for it to be a fun, relaxed, and beautiful event. Both Matt and Kelsey have worked weddings at The Pick Inn before, so they know how overwhelming the process can be – they chose to focus on what was important to them and make sure it was a fun event with their family and close friends. Their colors were a beautiful shade of dusty rose and burgundy – a perfect fall palette. We incorporated the burgundy with lots of greenery and eucalyptus to complement her dress as well as the bridesmaid dresses and centerpieces.
The color scheme continued through the reception and we added burgundy napkins to the tables to tie in the colors as well as a loose garland of greenery and silver dollar eucalyptus to their head table (which was 22 feet long!)
The reception was an absolute blast and everyone got to join together in celebrating Kelsey and Matt. The dance floor was packed all night, and some of the groomsmen even surprised the couple with a live performance! It was such an honor to get to be a part of this monumental occasion in their lives and I will always cherish the memories of their perfect day!
A huge thanks to all the vendors who came together to make their day so special. Be sure to check them out below!
