Real Wedding: Alicia and Michael’s Tallahassee Wedding

So a few weeks ago, I found out that I had been accepted as an editorial partner for Two Bright Lights. Wah-Whooo! Why so exciting? Well, it's because that means that I now have access to many, many KILLER real weddings and engagement sessions to share with Tulle Nation. And guess what, y'all? Today, I'm debuting my FIRST ever Two Bright Lights submission – Alicia & Michael's chic budget wedding in Tallahassee, Florida.

My favorite bits? The simple reception decor of jars, beans, and candles. The tulle wrap around the gorgeous rose bouquet. The simple guest book table featuring photos of the couple (including a digital frame of rotating images). But hell, don't take my word for it – check it out yourself!

Other fab budget touches are the flower-filled silver buckets as aisle decorations and used only on the reserved pews (a lovely way to tastefully save money). And can we talk about the getaway car??? Looks like they borrowed someone's old white Volvo (it looks cool and they probably saved a bundle that way)!

So Tulle Nation, whattya think? I've already told you my favorite parts – what are yours? Did you see something that you're going to steal for your wedding day? Or maybe there's a particular shot that you just have to get your photographer to do for you. Fire away in the comments!
