Happy Anniversary Angel and Justin! See Their Barbie Pink, Franklin Wedding
Friday, October 5, 2012
Angel and Justin were married a year ago last week! Their wedding planner, Tiffanie of Elliott Events, loved their hot pink aka "Barbie" wedding and especially loved working with this fun couple.
"Justin and Angel are truly an amazing couple. The entire day was filled with so much joy and love. Angel loved all things pink, bling and feathers; which are all things I think are amazing. So planning and designing her wedding was so much fun." ~Tiffanie
When you hire a planner that respects your vision and complements your personality, everyone is happy. Angel stated that planning with Tiffanie was effortless. While rare, that's exactly what I want to hear from brides. Planning your wedding can be effortless when you hire the right team. Yes, it takes some time but it's money and stress-saving in the end.
Oh - be sure to note that Angel regrets not hiring a wedding videographer. Hmmmm, where have I heard that before? Maybe here :)

How would you describe your style as a couple?
Justin is extremely laid back and has little opinion on most things pertaining to style! I love unique and fun things. My style is very eclectic!
How did you incorporate that style into your wedding?
From the beginning, I was determined to create the most perfect day. I loved the idea of having the damask because it has a fun, yet formal feel. We incorporated the pink as an accent color to really make everything pop. We added feathers and crystal designs throughout to give the wedding a couture feel. All the candles, pink up lighting, and twinkle lights were added to set a unique ambiance. It was truly a romantic paradise. I was absolutely blown away with Tiffanie. Her attention to detail is something I couldn’t have been more pleased with. We opted to have a photo booth and an AMAZING candy bar to turn up the fun! There were pictures of the two of us framed and scattered throughout the venue, which added to the uniqueness of it being “our” day. The natural feel of the venue is very rustic, which was a neat detail to incorporate certain aspects of that into our décor and photos. We also chose to have break dancers come perform which was such a cool touch. They incorporated everyone making it an interactive performance. So fun!
What was the favorite aspect of your wedding?
I had two things that I truly was impressed with. The first one being the ceremony set up and décor. I remember walking in that morning and my eyes filled with tears just thinking all of this is for us?! It was so incredibly beautiful in person. The other was our cake. It was so unique!
Where did you splurge? Where did you save/DIY?
We splurged close to the end of planning with the photo booth. Planning with Tiffanie was effortless. She does a lot of DIY! She created all the flower bouquets herself. I also bought cheap frames in bulk to frame our own pictures to place throughout. My sister made our unity candle, which was another saving. Buying the candy in bulk over the course of planning helped provide a better variety and helped with getting more for your money. We also used the same venue for both the ceremony and the reception which was a HUGE help on money and convenience.
Now that the wedding day is over, is there anything about your planning process you feel you could have done differently?
I think every bride can and will say at the end of the process that they wish they had stressed less and enjoyed the little moments more. As far as décor and actual wedding day, everything couldn’t have be more perfect! I do however wish we had gotten a videographer to capture it all in motion.
In one sentence, what words of advice do you have for couples in the midst of their planning?
If your significant other says “It doesn’t matter to me” about something, don’t mistake this for lack of concern in wedding details. Chances are, they just want what makes you happy!
