"Today, two years ago, we were on the beach watching the sunset... when you asked me to be your girlfriend. Now it's about three weeks until our wedding day! You are my life, Phil. I cannot wait to be your wife."
Ana - Instagram post
I met Ana and Phillip at Yellow Gold farm in Albany where they both prepped with their Bridal Party & Family. As predicted, Ana was very well organized and had everything ready upon my arrival. I gushed over her wedding dress - adorned from top to bottom with a beautiful lace detail. The bridesmaids had beautiful matching robes that made the backdrop of Ana getting ready pure perfection. Every detail just how I envisioned!From there, Ana met Phillip at the bridge where they did their First Look. Bridal Party and Bride and Groom photos followed at Yellow Gold Farm - which isincredibly beautiful. We were surrounded by lushes trees and beautiful flowers. There Wedding Ceremony also took place at Yellow Gold Farm amongst family and friends. Ana arrived with her dad on a beautiful white carriage, the guestcheered and looked in awe as they saw the bride & her dad arrive. Everything was pure perfection.
Ana & Phillip were and absolute joy to work with same goes for the friends and family. I look forward to seeing their marriage flourish.
WORDS OF WISDOM
FROM THE BRIDE
"We live in a time where the internet can do so much. Pinterest & Youtube were my best friends! That's were I educated myself about everything I needed for the wedding. There is also a page on Facebook called "Bride on a Budget" where all the brides sell their wedding decor, vendors share their sales, or simply start a conversation for advice. That is where I found most of my decor"
-Ana, on her Wedding Planning experience
"BUDGET YOUR LIFE! Honestly, I did not stress about anything except for money. I was working two jobs, trying to come up with all the money for the wedding and I still went to sleep completely stressed. If you just got engaged, make sure pinch your pennies until the wedding. It's nice to have a little extra than not enough. Financial problems were just the worst feeling ever and I would not want any bride to go through that."
