It’s all pretty pastels in today’s southern wedding captured by Devon Donnahoo. With charming handmade details (the bride made all the groomsmen ties) and the sweetest color palette, this wedding is perfect to get you in the spring mood. My personal favorite detail is the cute paper airplane exit!

We originally wanted to have an outside wedding, out on a farm or in a field with a big oak tree, but we started thinking it might be hard for all our out of town guests to navigate to and from. We decided on the Old Cigar Warehouse because it was unique, and it had that charm and character that we wanted to have for our wedding. Our colors for the wedding were soft pinks, shades of cream, and a light teal. I would say our style for the wedding was southern, simple, and romantic.

James: My favorite part of the day was our first look, partially because I got to get a good bit of the crying out. And I got to see my wife before everybody else did. It helped relieve the nerves a little, and it felt so intimate and special for us to have that time together.

The most important thing to us while we were planning was our ceremony. We wanted our whole wedding day to be focused on God’s purpose for marriage, to point us back to relationship with Him. We spent time with our pastor in premarital counseling talking and learning about what this would mean for our marriage and how our pastor could share this with our friends and loved ones during the ceremony.

Sara: I have two favorites because it’s too hard to pick one. I loved sharing communion and praying with James after we said our vows. I felt like it really helped us focus on why we were getting married in the first place. My second would be our surprise choreographed father-daughter dances that had all my friends and family cracking up!

We actually had several DIY projects because I love to craft and thought it would be fun to have handmade, personal details scattered throughout our wedding day. I sewed the groomsmen bow ties using different teal patterned fabrics, which was a fun project for me to let their personalities shine through their bow ties. James’s mom made wonderful homemade soy candles of some of our favorite scents as wedding favors for our guests.

My mom made paper airplanes that our guests wrote notes on and flew as we made our way out of the reception. It was neat because our friends collected them for us to keep and read their notes when we got back from our honeymoon.
