Justin & Carolyn Shaffer
WHAT WAS THE CREATIVE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR WEDDING?
Romantic, rustic, traditional.
WHAT WAS YOUR COLOR PALETTE?
White, ivory, gold, and black.
HOW DID YOU PERSONALIZE YOUR WEDDING AND MAKE IT ABOUT THE TWO OF YOU?
We had a small, intimate wedding personalized with a cross and Bible verses. We livestreamed it for our friends and family, and we had flowers everywhere.
IF YOU COULD TELL COUPLES PLANNING THEIR WEDDING ONE PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
If you’re able, get a great wedding planner like Weddings by Nancy. It will greatly reduce your stress! And great photography is worth it. Boxcar Photography does excellent work!
WHAT WAS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF YOUR WEDDING DATE AND/OR LOCATION?
It was in our favorite season: fall.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WERE GLAD YOU INSISTED ON?
Having white roses.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT IN YOUR CEREMONY AND WEDDING RECEPTION?
The groom’s reaction to seeing the bride walk down the aisle, and then the father-daughter dance.
WHAT WAS THE MOST CHALLENGING OBSTACLE YOU OVERCAME WHEN PLANNING YOUR WEDDING?
Making sure we had the marriage license by the appropriate time.
WHAT DID YOU OBSESS OVER THAT YOU REALIZED IN THE END DID NOT MATTER?
