justinketchem6To know this wedding is beautiful, all you have to do is look at the five words Gwen & Chris gave us to describe their big day: “Natural. Elegant. Simple. Blush. Green.” For proof, however, view Justin Ketchem Photography’s insanely gorgeous images.

Wedding Colors: Blush & Green

    From the Bride:“We wanted to keep things sentimental by asking our wonderfully talented family to help with different aspects of the wedding. My sister-in-law, Mackenzie, made all of our stationary. My sister, Allie, did my make-up. Chris’s cousin, Gwen, did all the bridesmaids’ hair. Everyone was involved and had a part in our wedding, which made it extremely meaningful for Chris and I.”

Advice from her: “When planning for our wedding, I would constantly ask myself, what is important and what do I want to get out of this wedding event? I would look back at other weddings I had attended and think about what aspects of their wedding I liked – entertainment and memories. In the end, it helped us cut out things that weren’t important to us and kept us on budget.”

Advice from him:“Remember the small things in life, like hugging and kissing your fiance. When you have problems, resolve them immediately so you can wake up fresh the next morning.”
