The planning process was incredibly fun for the couple and Hillary’s mother acted as wedding planner while Ben was the artistic one who put it all together. Ben designed the table numbers, programs, menus, and seating charts.Hillary-&-Ben-Simonson_StephanieBakerPhotography_BridalCoutureMagazine
The entire day was marvelous for the couple and they are hard-pressed to choose a favorite moment.  “We were very happy with our Candy Buffet and Photo booth.  They were both a huge hit at the reception!”Hillary-&-Ben-Simonson_StephanieBakerPhotography_BridalCoutureMagazine

Alison & Bryan Harden

Married June 3, 2012

After getting engaged in Knights Ferry, Alison thought she was bringing Bryan home to his surprise birthday party she planned. Little did she know that was also all part of Bryan’s original plan. As they walked into what was really a surprise engagement party that only his mom and sister knew about, the newly engaged couple were able to celebrate with loved ones on the day of their engagement.

As the planning began, Alison knew she was taking on a lot with writing her thesis, finishing up her graduate program, and planning a wedding but she took every effort to be involved. One way that she accomplished this was by incorporating several DIY projects where she could enlist friends and family to help create and also spend quality time with. She loves how this brought a very personal element to her wedding planning.


Together they made banners, the wedding invitations and programs, and delicious jam for favors. The bride’s father also handcrafted signs for the wedding venue and the adorable speech bubbles used in their photo booth at the reception.

Alison’s closest friends also gifted her little things that made the day extra special. A cherished hanky as her Something Old, hand-made navy rosettes on her white Toms created by her maid-of-honor as her Something Blue, a Borrowed veil from a family friend, and her beautiful dress as Something New.

Harden_Dial_GroverStyle-BridaCoutureMagazine-FallOf all the special moments on their wedding day, one of their favorites was against a barn before the ceremony. They had decided not to see each other beforehand and as Alison’s nerves grew, they came together at the corner of the barn to just hold hands for a picture. In that moment all nervousness was swept away and on that day she married her best friend.

Carissa & Stanton Calloway

In the words of the Bride; “Stanton and I met in the 7th grade.  I was the new girl at a small country school and his first impression was that I was a little dorky, which I blame on my wearing glasses.  We became best friends in high school (yes, I got rid of the glasses) and his opinion of me changed drastically.

I was the only girl he ever loved, a fact he kept quiet for a few months (so as not to ruin our friendship) until I came around to the same idea about him.  Being of an impatient nature, I didn’t wait at all to share my feelings immediately after becoming aware of them.  We had been dating for three-and-a-half years, always knowing we would marry each other, when Stanton proposed while on a quad ride through Almond Orchards.

We were engaged for a year and in that time my wonderful fiancé gave my mom and I the freedom to plan our vintage country-garden wedding.  I love all things soft, vintage and romantic.  The colors we chose were ivory and gray with touches of peach that appeared mostly through our flowers.  I wasn’t able to find accessories or decorations I loved, so I came up with a lot of the ideas myself and had my sisters and cousin help me with my D.I.Y. projects.  Some of our favorite projects were the bridesmaids’ shoes and our reception centerpieces.  Everything came together beautifully.  There is nothing we would have changed.”

D.I.Y. Projects included the bridesmaids shoes, bridesmaids hairpieces, brides hairpiece and veil, invitations, aisle shepherds hooks, reception centerpiece jars, hanging jars above the bridal party table, candy bar, the shutters, doily covered Chinese lanterns and “Carissa and Stanton” flags.
