Veronica and I met well before her wedding. She actually inquired to be my assistant for weddings the summer before her own.

GUESS WHAT?

I THINK THIS IS A GENIUS IDEA.

It gives you some AMAZING insight into what you yourself will want to have happen at your wedding (and what you certainly will NOT). And because Veronica is superbly organized, terribly hard working and a real go getter, it was amazing for me as well.

**Minus that one time I had a panic attack when we lost her keys in vineyard vines.

Veronica was able to whittle down the details of her own big day by seeing how other’s plans play out. It’s one thing to put it down on paper, it’s another thing to actually have it executed.

No wedding party, no formal dinner, no fuss, maximum party.

Take a look at the beginning of Veronica and Xavier’s day, as captured by Danny Photography, after learning 6 things we can learn from them.

 

6 THINGS WE CAN LEARN VERONICA + XAVIER:

  1. It’s okay to not have a wedding party, it’ll make your morning of very chill, you can still have friends and family with you while you get ready for the day

  2. DIY projects are always best accomplished by starting them early, like an oversized flower wall backdrop. Don’t procrastinate on that shit

  3. First looks can easily be more dramatic when you include a staircase

  4. Live music is the best way to walk down the aisle

  5. Chicken is waffles is a superb combo, however, feel free to serve chicken for dinner and then waffles for dessert

  6. If you have candles on the ground, lining your aisle, just be aware that probably someone will kick them over splashing wax all over the floor (and their pants), no matter how much you warn people to ‘be careful’, ‘watch out’ and ‘go around’
