Breakfast at Tiffany’s ~ Amber and Darrel’s Wedding

Amber Darrel wedding 02

What woman doesn’t want to be just a little bit like Audrey Hepburn? Amber is no exception, and she and her new husband Darrel fashioned their wedding after Hepburn’s classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

From the music for the couple’s first dance, to the bride’s ring (obviously from Tiffany’s!), to the touches of Tiffany blue, this wedding invited guests to revel in the world of Audrey Hepburn.

On this day though, Amber and Darrel were the stars of the show. The bride and groom were all smiles as they said their vows in front of family and friends. There was great food, plenty of dancing and tons of fun all around. A lot of planning went into this wedding, and all the details came together to create a beautiful and memorable day.

Amber and Darrel were married in October of 2011 and are now settling into their new life together. When they look back on this day, they can’t help but smile as they remember all the great memories. Even the sky was channeling that Tiffany blue.

I asked Amber and Darrel some questions about their wedding day and here is what they had to share.

Which one moment will last for each of you forever?
The entire day – from getting ready with our wedding party and parents, to our first look, to our personalized vows and first kiss as husband and wife, to a fantastic meal and night of laughter and dancing with our families and friends.

Best advice for future bride/grooms? 
Have the wedding that fits your vision and enjoy every moment.

Best wedding related decision?
Having a one-stop venue for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception.  Also, our choice of wedding photographer!

What was the funniest memory from your wedding day? 
The speeches from our fathers. One included Amber’s horoscope indicating that the day might bring a boring task, but do it anyway!  The other included a humorous Irish tale.

What is your favourite image from your wedding day and why?
That’s a tough one as they are all beautiful. Loved the black and white bride and groom portraits and fountain shots!
