Traditional Episcopal wedding with quirky DIY touches
Brianne and Crystal describe their Tennessee wedding as “elegant and romantic, with quirky, vintage and DIY details.”
“Everything from our traditional Episcopal ceremony to our Legend of Zelda ‘Broom’s Cake,'” they continue, “was an expression of ourselves and the love we have for each other.”
In the planning, the couple said they settled for nothing less than absolute support and acceptance from vendors.
“We adopted a zero tolerance policy from the beginning when choosing vendors,” they say. “If we sensed something was the slightest bit off, we moved on. It’s your time, your money, and your day. Don’t settle for anything less than 100% supportive vendors. They exist, even in East Tennessee!”
Their advice to vendors: Do everything you can to make sure the couple knows you are there to give them a wonderful day.
“Everyone involved was genuinely excited and happy for us. They made us feel cared for, like our wedding was not just another job. Also, though we knew our church was supportive of our decision to be married, we were overwhelmed by our parishioners’ show of love and involvement.”
