Jon Ames & Bria Parker
What was the overall creative inspiration for your wedding?
An elegant and eclectic wedding day in the valley.
What was your color palette?
Soft pastel shades of off-white, brown, purple, and pinks. I wanted a mix-and-match palette of colors that all went together.
What was your favorite moment in your ceremony and reception?
Being surrounded by the people we love most. The ceremony was by far the most special and thoughtful moment of the day.
What advice do you have for other couples planning their weddings?
Go with what you want. Lots of people will have lots of different opinions, but it is your wedding, so do what you want. Find a time during your wedding to give each other something meaningful. That was one of my favorite parts of our day.
