Southern & Organic Amelia Island Wedding

Sweet and southern is the only way to describe this beautifully organic Amelia Island wedding planned by Dairing Events. Kristen & Harrison were married under a moss covered oak tree in the golden sunlight that is like something out of a dream. With a neutral color palette and lush greenery details, this couple kept to a natural vibe with a gorgeous touch of whimsy and romance. Lots of candlelight created an elegant mood, while still being fun and relaxed, and of course a cigar bar was the perfect late night activity for guests to enjoy! We can’t wait for you to enjoy all of the beauty captured by Finny Hill Photography!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

Google spreadsheets! I have a very busy job so wedding planning on top of that was a lot. Google spreadsheets helped to keep me organized and maintain my sanity. You can share them with your wedding planner or whoever is helping you and you can edit them together from different locations which is great! Also, my mom! She is was a saint throughout the whole process and helped take a lot off of my plate. I couldn’t have done it without her.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

I worked with Adair Currie from Dairing Events. I was planning my wedding from Dallas so I knew I needed someone that got my vision, was highly organized and a great communicator. When we had our first Skype meeting, I knew Adair was that person. She came to the first call with so many ideas and I loved them all. I love when people go the extra mile like that.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

I made several versions of inspiration boards on Pinterest before I narrowed it down. I decided I wanted the whole wedding to have a very organic/natural feel while also being whimsical. My color palette was lots of white, wood, greenery and copper accents. We also had light gray throughout which was the color of my bridesmaid’s dresses.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

My favorite thing was first and foremost, having everyone from different parts of Harrison and I’s lives together in one place. It is overwhelming how loved you feel on your wedding day. 
Also, the location – it was a dream! The hotel was on the beach and our wedding site was on the marsh under these beautiful Florida oak trees. The sunset was magical.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Just remember, the wedding is one day. Marriage is what it is really about. It will be the best day or your life but don’t sweat the small stuff. Be sure to stop and take it all in because it is over before you know it!
