I’m so excited to share this fun and unique wedding from Al Gawlik Photography to start off some fab wedding features for 2015! This whole wedding is arrow themed and they weave it through every little detail of the wedding, making one super cute event! The chair details are absolutely amazing and one of my all time favorites that I’ve seen!
When planning our wedding we both wanted something that captured us in all of our elements. We chose crossed arrows to be the main focus of our wedding, sort of a brand for us if you will. I have an obsession with arrows & Weston is an avid bow hunter. I loved a quote I saw that stated this “An arrow can only be shot forward by pulling it backwards. When life is dragging you back with its difficulties, it means its going to launch you into something great. So just focus & keep aiming.” They are such wonderful words to live by. It was a reminder of how far Weston & I have come as a couple & where we want to go in life, but grounded me & reminded me that not everything in life comes easy.
We had a vision of what we wanted our wedding to be like but found it a little difficult to figure out how to merge all of our styles together. I have so many different sides to my style I guess the best way to describe my style would be bohemian chic glam. Weston on the other hand is more country chic. Katherine with Sweet August Events knew just how to bring our dreams to a reality. She blew us away with the design elements & incorporated all of the little details that meant so much to us. We wanted our wedding to be very different & original, yet keep some of the traditional elements incorporated as well.
It’s hard to pick a favorite design element because everything was just absolutley out of this world. Our head table was just to die for. We had an overhang with flowers & draping grennery that added such a bohemian feel to the wedding. Our His & Her chairs were probably the most creative & different chairs I have ever seen. Katherine attached greenery to the back of our chairs & had our arrow his & her signs, I just about died when I saw them. Each of our tables had custom rustic boxes with our crossed arrow branded into them, it was fabulous. To make our guest feel engaged in the wedding, each of our tables were named something special to us & had a description listed below.
We wouldn’t have been able to bring our vision to life with out our to die for vendors so Thank you! We were truly blessed with all of our amazing vendors who did such spectacular jobs.
