callie-pence and panache featured brideWhat is your #1 tip for brides in the planning process? Planning should be fun. If it isn’t fun, put it away. Enjoy your engagement because it’s a very special experience. On your wedding day, just enjoy the ride. Whatever happens, be joyful.

How do you describe the theme of your wedding? Boots and Bowties

What color palette did you select and why did you choose it? Ochre, blush, and white. Yellow is my favorite color because it’s so warm and cheerful. I picked blush because it would be a flattering color on my bridesmaids.

Do you have any advice for brides who are still searching for their perfect bridal gown? Be patient and trust in the power of a good seamstress.

 What was your favorite part of your wedding day? We loved just looking around and seeing our joy reflected in our family and friends.
