I recently celebrated my wedding in June, and I’ve discussed some of my theme park inspiration in my previous post.
Finding a healthy balance between tacky and understated was a challenge.
Disney Princess Hair
Ever since I saw Frozen, I’ve been obsessed with Elsa’s elegant braid. When it came time for bridal portraits, I asked my hairstylist, Emily Summerville (out of Tuscaloosa, Ala.) to create Elsa bridal hair. She did an amazing job.
The hairstyle held up well throughout the day. I loved hearing my guests tell me I looked just like Elsa!
Remembering Loved Ones
Many special people in our lives have passed away, and we wanted to remember them throughout the wedding. In addition to placing the flowers on the altar in memory of them, we had a table featuring photos at the reception.
I loved the line “The ones who love us never really leave us” from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This quote is from the film, as Sirius Black comforts Harry. The original quote from the book is offered by Albus Dumbledore.
You think the dead we loved truly ever leave us? You think that we don’t recall them more clearly in times of great trouble?
