We tend to see more weddings with red in them in the winter, (around the holidays and at Valentines Day), which is why Fab You Bliss is featuring this classy red and white winter wedding today, in honor of “Love” month. But I think red can be used beautifully anytime of year. In fact, a red summer wedding would be brilliant as well!
With MyLife Photography on hand to capture every classy moment, Erin and Stephen’s wedding color was not a season choice at all. Rather the red was picked to honor Erin’s mother who was diagnosed with a brain tumor one week before Erin met the man she would soon marry. Let’s hear the story in the bride’s own words:
“The one thing I wanted at our wedding was a bold red to honor my mother and the type of woman I want to be. The most distinctive thing about her is her amazing red lips. It’s her thing. Sadly, we almost lost her about one week before I met Stephen. She had a brain tumor that caused some unusual behavior, including speaking with no filter. So on the trip to the doctor she tearfully blurted out, “I can’t die yet, my baby girl hasn’t met the man of her dreams.” Little did either of us know I would meet him only a few days later.
The chemo took my mother’s hair, her energy, and a lot of her memory, but she still had those red lips. So that was my inspiration. My mother. Classy, timeless, and always full of grace and passion. Happily, she made a full recovery and enjoyed every minute of our wedding. What a blessing!”
