How about starting your day with some straight up pretty with this classic blush and ivory wedding from Pepper Nix Photography! Stefani and Braedon planned a timeless, elegant wedding in romantic shades of rosy pink, cream, and taupe.
According to Stefani, the wedding design all centered around finding the perfect dress! Once she found her stunning champagne Justin Alexander lace gown at Bridal Expressions, the entire theme fell into place. Their choice of reception venue beautifully tied in with her vision for their day – Tuscany in Salt Lake City fully lived up to its namesake, with a courtyard of warm stone and lovely, old world architecture.
This relaxed and radiant couple juggled falling in love with their humanitarian work around the globe; when they were reunited after working separately in Cambodia and India, they both knew that they were ready to start an adventure together. Their easy-going nature carried into their wedding day – they chose to keep the wedding day traditions to a minimum and focus on enjoying their guests’ and each other – and the dancing!
Their wedding was truly a family affair – Stefani’s mother and future mother-in-law were an enormous part of the planning process, even down to helping with all of their crafted details. Stefani’s favorite were the hand-made bouquet charms her mother-in-law made, to represent the couple’s parents and grandparents – they hung from the trailing ribbons on her bouquet and she plans to make a charm bracelet with them! When Stefani’s search for the perfect pair of bridal shoes to complement her dream gown turned up fruitless, she stumbled across the perfect pair of relaxed and comfortable sandals in her mother’s closet. Her wedding day bracelet came from her mother’s closet as well, and a friend handmade Stefani’s pearl cluster earrings to match. Braedon had a hand in adorning his beautiful bride – he designed her wedding ring!
