Vintage Peach Wedding by Belathée Photography

Happy Monday everyone! I feel so happy to be back to our regular scheduled programming over here on the Hey Gorg blog. With the craziness that was my birthday, last weekend's amazing wedding, an entire week dedicated to giveaways and then a birthday surprise weekend (which ended up being a surprise visit from my parents planned by hubby; marking the first time we've seen one another since Christmas. Eeek!) it's safe to say I feel refreshed and ready to rock this week with even more prettiness than ever. Also, I just wanted to send another big thank you to everyone who sent me happy birthday tweets, texts, emails, comments and calls. You all know how to make a girl feel so completely lucky and loved. And without further ado...


I am completely smitten with this vintage peach wedding sent over from Belathée Photography. Jolene, the sweet bride, wore a gown we're not afraid to admit we've all fallen in love with (yup, that's Melissa Sweet's 'Fern') and the flowers are something straight out of a dream. Add in all the pretty pale pink touches and the spiffiest vintage car I've ever seen and voila, you get this beautiful celebration to kick off the start of your week. Be sure to catch the very detailed vendor list to find out where you too can score some of the lovely touches that completed Brad and Jolene's big day. Enjoy this fabulous new week, blogettes! xo


{From Jolene, the bride} Brad and I got to have the wedding that we both wanted. We wanted a wedding that felt intimate and cozy. Brad and I could have easily had a 150 to 200 guest wedding but it wasn't what we wanted. We wanted to share this special day closely with loved ones. I didn't need an 'audience' of people I didn't really know or hardly ever see. I wanted to look around the candle lit table at all those people who mean the most. We tailored the wedding to suit our personalities so a garter/bouquet toss, dollar dance, and not seeing each other before the wedding were traditions that didn't feel right to us. If you want a fabulous wedding, hire fabulous vendors. Our vendors were beyond amazing. I love them and will forever be grateful for the incredible work that they did. Also, hire a wedding planner that is lovely and supportive. My fairy godplanner was a dream and I felt like I didn't have to worry about a thing. This leads me to my last piece of advice, relax. Relax and enjoy.

This color palette is one of my all time favorites - it instantly puts me in a good mood:) I love that the bride and groom kept it small and intimate - I bet the guests felt truly a part of their special day.
