You can almost always tell when a wedding planner plans her own wedding, rich in details yet not overly done. That’s the whole look of Brenna and Galen’s modern neutral colored wedding.
With some touches of bohemian elements from their favorite vacation spot- Tulum, along with the perfect neutral colors to keep thing timeless, the couple celebrated their love in a stunning and romantic wedding at the Cambridge Mill.
About the Modern Neutral Colored Wedding
“[Tulum] This is actually where My husband, Galen, proposed to me and where we took much of our inspiration from. One of our favourite parts of our vacations to Tulum is counting the amount of VW “surf-buses” we can spot, and so naturally we had to have one as our wedding transportation. it acted as our arrival and getaway car, and also as a shuttle for families leaving early. This was so much fun and one of the best investments we made for our wedding. It was something that was totally, uniquely, us and helped to transport our event to our happiest place. We also had several stone, macrame and natural decor details, as well as “shake for a kiss” maracas.”
“The florals were a mix of live and dried flowers to give as much romantic texture as possible, and we were sure to prominently feature some dried thistles and dried protea, the national flowers of our ethnic backgrounds (myself, Scottish and my husband, South African). Admittedly, there were more proteas integrated into the decor, as it is also where we first met and became friends.”
It was also important to us to get married in a place full of light and so a glass room overlooking the grand river seemed to be the perfect chose. The old world limestone building paired with the timeline Architecture, chandeliers and exposed wood beams certainly gave off some European vibes, which made our guests feel like they were transported somewhere else, their words, not ours”
