For the most part, mothers play a large part in a daughter’s wedding day – from helping to plan to being at every vendor appointment to sharing in the anticipation and excitement, your wedding day is bound to be just as special and important for your mom! It goes without saying that you’ll want to capture some precious mother daughter wedding photos to look back on this cherished time together.
Personally, my mom is the most important person in my life besides my husband. She’s my best friend and confidant, and she has been there for me every step of the way throughout my life. When my wedding day rolled around, I specifically requested that our photographer capture some sweet, candid moments of my mother and I, as well as traditional portraits that I knew I could frame and cherish for years to come. Two years later, photos of my mom and I throughout the morning of my wedding day are some of my favorite pictures from the entire event.
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, get inspired by how to incorporate your mom into each part of your wedding day and capture the moments on film. Even if your wedding day has come and gone, use this as a reminder to pull out those proofs and get some pictures of you and your mom framed!
If there’s one thing that never goes out of style for weddings, it’s the color pink — blush pink not only screams romance, but has the soft, pretty pastel look that gives so many weddings that sweet springtime atmosphere. Today’s outdoor blush pink wedding is a quintessential example of a timeless looking celebration. Perhaps you remember the bride, Caitlin, from her lovely pink backyard bridal shower we featured earlier this spring? If so, it comes as no surprise that her blush pink wedding was even more gorgeous than that special shower!
Married in the mountains above Denver, Caitlin and Jimmer’s wedding had a gorgeous, old-world romance to the ceremony and reception. However, there’s also so many handmade and unexpected touches — their photo booth had DIY props, and (if you can believe it) their gorgeous trio of wedding cakes was from Whole Foods! It’s a truly special wedding day you need to see to believe, so get inspired with even more gorgeous photos by Connie Whitlock Photography after the jump!
