Whenever I mention “traditional” weddings in the bridalsphere, there seems to be a collective groan – which is a pity! I’m not sure when “traditional” became code for outdated or frumpy but, goodness, can I attest that tradition can be just as stylish and modern as any other wedding style. Just take this bright and vibrant wedding of Cristina and James, for example.
Cristina and Jim, middle school sweethearts, finally (per family and friends) got hitched last year in a beautiful church and had a festive barn reception. As you can see, Cristina is a fan of color from her shoes to her bouquet. The couple grew all the flowers for the wedding and arranged them all the day of. Wow!
According to photographers, Bethany & Dan Photography, “the decor was all DIY, made lovingly by friends and family. Did I mention it was colorful? I haven’t even mentioned the awesome clothing choices this girl made. Check out those Kate Spade shoes and designer dress by Francesca Miranda. Swoon. We loved being there to witness this wedding and share the day with everyone. It was one of a kind.”
