An Aqua and Orange Wedding at a Private Residence in Auburn, Alabama

Candace Aikens (26 and a communications specialist) and Conner Robbins (22 and a student) had a specific goal for their wedding in Auburn, Alabama: to personalize every detail. "We wanted it to reflect who we are—from the clothes and shoes we wore to the location, food, and decorations," Candace says. "It all reflected the things we love most.” Aqua and orange (their favorite hues) also covered the celebration. We're talking DIY aqua and coral bow ties, aqua bridesmaid dresses with lace details, orange DIY daisy bouquets. To make things that much more tailored to them, the reception at her parents' house in Auburn, Alabama, also included a checkerboard dance floor made by her father. Candace's parents also added to the party with a surprise. "We expected two of our friends to sing live for our first dance, but my dad hopped up on the microphone and sang "I Loved Her First," Candace says.
