Berry and Gold Holiday Wedding At The Mulberry

If you are one of those people who are already counting down the days until Christmas, we have just the wedding for you!

It was Brianna’s dream to have a Christmastime wedding, and Michael was on board to make this dream become a reality! Each color in their Christmas inspired color palette represented something different. Red is their favorite color, green is both a winter color but also a natural color that they wished to incorporate into their floral. White is the color of celebration, and then finishing it off is Gold-which is their last name!

As for the personal wedding details, there are plenty! The guestbook was actually a box of post cards from places that have special meaning to both of them – places they have lived, places they have visited or places they wish they could visit  (Brianna may have snuck a Hogwarts postcard in there!). Then, their cake was special because it incorporated Michael’s last name of Gold and Brianna’s maiden name of Berry. They had gold fondant “dripping” down the cake and then blueberries and strawberries placed on the different levels. In addition, three blueberries formed a hidden Mickey Mouse as Michael and Brianna met working for Disney and still work there to this day!

What advice would you give other couples about the wedding planning process?

Be organized! I’m a planner, and my in laws gave me a wedding planner that helped a lot. Michael and I also made sure to split duties. Maybe not evenly, but we both work full-time, demanding jobs, so we knew it wasn’t fair to put everything on one person to plan. It’s important to lean on each other!

Is there any advice you would give engaged couples about married life?

People kept asking if it felt any different than engaged life, and our answer is no, which we think is a good thing! We’re each other’s best friends, and we think a foundation of friendship is so important. It’s important to choose each other every day, support each other, and know that no one, not even this amazing person that you’ve married, is perfect, but they are perfect for you.
