For their wedding, Kristen and Blair chose a glam country theme. “We went with a black, white and gold palette to keep it simple but still elegant. For decor, we included a few rustic pieces like branches and antlers, and had large vases with big pine cones and gold-painted willow branches–it was beautiful when it all came together,” Kristen says.
Décor aside, the bride says that the ceremony was one of her favourite parts of the day. “We were both so nervous beforehand, but so happy once we finally got to see each other. We asked a friend to perform the ceremony so we felt more comfortable. We were able to focus on each other and really be in the moment,” she explains. The couple agrees that another big highlight of the celebration was getting to spend the day with their small wedding party taking photos and having fun. “Everyone was so relaxed and seemed to be having fun. We even had enough time to stop at a pub for beer!” Kristen says.
