Congrats to bride Mindy on her beautifully rustic wedding in Dallas, Georgia! The ceremony took place in a gorgeous converted barn house and Mindy’s daughter was able to participate as the flower girl! Watch the couple’s beautiful ceremony and even more touching (and sparkly) sendoff in their Dallas, Georgia wedding video!
Mindy’s guests were able to have a hand in their gorgeous wedding video by using the Weddingmix app to document the whole event, from preparation to sendoff!
One of my very favorite moments was when my husband and my daughter did a daddy and daughter dance, you could see how wonderful their relationship is and also being able to see the look on my husband’s face when I walked in the door at the ceremony. Seeing how much fun everyone had watching me turn bright red when my husband decided to give me a brief lap dance during the garter removal was actually priceless to me! Probably one of the silliest moments of the night but he got me good with that!” – Mindy
Love their look? Here’s how you can do it!
Advice from the bride!
1. What part of your wedding planning are you most proud of?
We are both proud of the fact we pulled our dream wedding together in less than three months! We were engaged December 1st, 2018 and married February 23rd, 2019. My husband schemed with one of my best girl friends to plan a family photo shoot and catch our engagement on camera! It was the best and most memorable day, and then we were both just so ready to be man and wife and officially start our lives together that the next week we went to this little venue up the road from our home and booked it for February!
Wedding planning was very easy for us, we agreed on basically everything, with the exception I had to add a pop of color to the flowers for my husband! I wanted all pale blues and dusty greens and we added pink and wine flowers to satisfy his need for color and I am so glad we did because it was beautiful!
2. Where did you get married?
We were married at Bullock Springs Manor in Dallas GA. It is a farmhouse that has been converted into a wedding venue. They recently built this beautiful open air barn with an exposed brick wall and it was the exact feel we were looking for.
Very simple and intimate feeling, having a small wedding was very important to us. We really wanted a laid back affair where most of the guest knew each other and felt at ease! Everyone was able to sit back and relax and enjoy the time together.
3. Why was using WeddingMix appealing for your big day?
Honestly we are just not the type of people who are gonna sit back and watch a wedding video so spending a ton of money on a videographer was out of the question. A friend of mine saw weddingmix on pinterest the week of my wedding and on a whim we downloaded the app to give it a try.
It wasn’t until the week after the wedding I purchased the package in hopes they could pull together a cute little video for us and man, did wedding mix deliver! I was amazed at the quality and the moments that were captured. It was the best last minute decision ever!
4. What were the most important moments that WeddingMix was able to capture on your special day?
So so so many moments! Being able to see moments in the wedding that I had completely missed that other guest were able to capture, such as when the bridal party walked into the ceremony, and that our little ring bearer fell asleep and his beautiful mama had to carry him in, being able to see my daughter as flower girl!
One of my very favorite moments was when my husband and my daughter did a daddy and daughter dance, you could see how wonderful their relationship is and also being able to see the look on my husband’s face when I walked in the door at the ceremony. Seeing how much fun everyone had watching me turn bright red when my husband decided to give me a brief lap dance during the garter removal was actually priceless to me! Probably one of the silliest moments of the night but he got me good with that!
5. What is your top wedding budget tip(s)?
Create a wedding journal and write everything down and paste your receipts in it! I have to jot things down to remember! Talk with your spouse about your budget; do not make any decisions without each other being completely on board!
Going with an all-inclusive venue helped us out and using all of their preferred vendors saved us a lot of money! Also being flexible with your date! Many wedding venues will give you a deal if you book a cancelled date or during off peak season. Buying a wedding dress at a sample sale is also another bit of advice I received and was so happy I used.
