We’re going to let Hunter + Justin, two high school sweethearts, with a love for nostalgia, take us into the weekend. Their wedding was a true homage to their families, with rustic and antique details that told a story. If you knew them, you’d know that their celebration wasn’t just about them, but about the people that took the journey with them. That’s why a great deal of their inspiration came from their countryside upbringings. We’re very thankful Anthem Photography chose to share this gem with us!

That gorgeous veil was gifted from her mom’s friend.

Bouquet recipe: Garden roses, olive branches, astrantia snow star, green amaranthus, and lisianthus.

Big money saver: Hunter purchased the flowers for wholesale price, didn’t hire a florist, but gathered her bridesmaids and made a party out of making all the floral arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnieres.

Hunter shares a few lessons learned with brevity: Lesson 1, don’t spend a fortune! It’s truly not worth it and there are so many ways to cut costs. Lesson 2, your wedding can be beautiful but remember what the day is actually about. Don’t get caught up in making it perfect, your wedding is a party and not a performance! Lesson 3, be careful about who you DON’T invite. Remember that although the wedding is “about the couple,” it’s also about the people who brought you to where you are. 

Great advice. We simply adore this two. Best wishes Hunter + Justin!
