Happy Saturday! What’s a more perfect pick-me-up for your weekend? A little wedding inspo brought to you by this beautiful wedding at Heartwood Hall of course! Olivia and Chris’s celebrations were so them, and we absolutely adore it! After all, that’s what it’s about, right? Get the behind-the-scenes details from Olivia below!
What is your favorite quality in your husband?
“My favorite quality about my husband is his heart. He is the most giving person you will ever meet. He will give you the shirt off his back if it is the last thing he has. He is always thinking of others before himself, even when he is sick he will take care of me before himself.”
When did you know you were falling in love?
“My family is my constant in my life and we are a very close knit bunch especially having a military background. Once I saw how perfectly Chris fit in with my family, that’s when I knew he was the one. My family accepted him like he was their own and that is huge to me!”
Did you have a specific theme or design inspiration for your big day?
“I have always wanted a barn wedding with the golds and blush colors. I chose navy blue dresses because that is my husbands favorite color so I wanted to give him something he would love, too.”
What was the most memorable moment?
“The most memorable moment was when we were saying our vows. The officiant was not done talking and Chris just yelled out ‘I Do’ before he was supposed to. That will always stick with me because I knew at that moment we were ready to finally be husband and wife. Plus, it made for a good laugh for everyone and we got a good picture out of it.”
What traditions did you incorporate?
“We did not incorporate many traditions, but I did have my grandmother be my flower girl. Which was a very special moment and memory for me.”
What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it?
“‘Yours’” by Russell Dickerson. We chose this song because when we started dating we both made each other a better person.”
Tell us about your grand exit!
“We left the most amazing night of our lives by the most beautiful sparkler exit. We walked and danced our way past all of our family and friends to my brothers lifted truck. We are a country family so it was only fitting that our getaway car be a lifted F250.”
Best wishes Olivia and Chris!
