Bright colorful blooms and bold navy and white stripes created the a fun and cheerful design palette for Sam and Mike’s Ohio wedding. They said their “I Do’s” in an outdoor ceremony under a beautiful greenery and floral arch while the aisle was lined with brightly colored ribbons blowing in the wind. We love that they chose such a fun and bold color palette for their late spring wedding, and it gives us all the fun summer vibes that we would hope for.
Between the design of the day by Oak & Honey Events and the beautiful imagery captured by Mann & Wife – Visual Storytellers, we feel like we were brought right into Sam and Mike’s celebration. Our favorite detail is the unique bar setup they chose with Sweet Water Caravan– it was a perfect fit for the eclectic and laid back style of the day, and made for the perfect photo op!
Sam has shared some great insight behind the pretty images from their wedding day. We hope you enjoy!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Melanie Tindell of Oak and Honey Events was our wedding planner, so she helped a lot with the planning process before the wedding and the day of, she was a saint! The day wouldn’t have gone so perfectly without her!!
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
We decided to hire a wedding planner because I knew that they would help us pin point exactly what I was envisioning for our day, while working within our budget. Melanie was able to do both of those things!
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
Our wedding was more of a color scheme, navy blue with bright colors. Our wedding day was May 28th, so I wanted the colors to reflect the season. It looked perfect!!
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
Oh my gosh, it’s hard to pick just one thing that I loved about our wedding!! My top 3 would have to be our flowers, (by Fair Rarity flowers, they were stunning!), our food was delicious! It was BBQ food by Old Carolina BBQ. Our photographer Mann & Wife Photography was phenomenal…Honestly, it’s so hard to pick one because I loved everything about our day! It was perfect!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
The best piece of advice I could give is to not stress about the small stuff, because honestly the only thing that matters is that you’re marrying your best friend, everything else is just extra!
We love hearing their favorite moments from this special day. We definitely agree with Sam’s last bit of advice. She and Mike sure look like they enjoyed every moment of their wedding day, and that is truly what matters most!
