Real Wedding: Abbi + Brent
Today’s gorgeous Real Wedding submission comes to us from Wes Roberts Photography. Abbi and Brent Kohn tied the knot last year on April 12, 2014, at the fabulous Wynfield Estate in Montgomery. We’ve had the pleasure of shooting one of our Signature Style Series shoots for the 2012 issue of AWM at this venue and it is truly breathtaking. Although the fashion, the design and the couple are all just beautiful, the most perfect part of this wedding is the thoughtfulness of incorporating sentimental details throughout the entire day. Abbi gives us an inside look at how tradition and nostalgia made their wedding so special to them:
“On April 12, 2014, a fairy tale was brought to life! We had so much fun all day long; we couldn’t stop smiling. The Wynfield Estate couldn’t have been a more perfect venue to watch our dream wedding unfold before us. The weather was beautiful, the flowers were stunning, and the food was delicious. We had a fun-filled time dancing the night away with all of our friends and family to Tim Tyler and his dueling pianos. We were honored to share this special day with so many family and friends. We had several sentimental elements entwined throughout our ceremony. The ring bearer’s pillow was hand made from my grandmother’s sixty year old wedding gown. My bouquet was wrapped with lace from my mother’s wedding veil. We drank champagne from the same glasses that my parents used on their wedding day thirty-four years ago. I wore my mother in law’s garter, and sewn into her garter was blue yarn taken from my childhood blanket. The mother of the groom’s bouquet was adorned with a silver locket that held a picture of her late husband; they shared 29 years of marriage. The flower girl’s baskets were filled with dried flower petals that I had been given by the groom throughout our ten year courtship. We strived to make our perfect day a classic look, with touches of nostalgia that have enriched our memories, and brought us together to share a life. It was a magical day that will be forever etched in our hearts.”
No matter what look or feel you want for you wedding, tying in those special details makes your wedding uniquely you. It represents the heart of a relationship that begins long before your walk down the aisle and the future you will share together after your honeymoon. Congratulations to Abbi and Brent!
