Vendors We Love: Brittany Lott from Elle Affairs
What made you decide to start wedding planning?
When I was in college I fell in love with the wedding industry and its creative beauty. I loved that each and every love story was different and equally beautiful. I began to dig deeper and find my place in this world of love and creatives. I prayed constantly about what my next step would be, talked with my husband and knew that wedding planning was the creative outlook and organized avenue for my future.
What is your favorite part of a wedding to plan?
The small, personal details are sometimes the most special and fun parts about a wedding! I love getting to know my couples, hearing their stories and coming up with creative ways to intertwine their love story with their wedding celebration. I'm also a sucker for a good design board! I really enjoy coming up with a unique vision for each wedding day that incorporates everything the bride and groom have dreamt about!
What are your favorite colors to see right now in weddings?
I love a good neutral pallet, this will always be beautiful and classic! But it is also fun when a bride is willing to add some pops of color to her day. At the moment I am really loving a pallet with creams, whites with romantic lavender accents. Multiple shades of blue and aqua are also gorgeous and perfect for summer or a wedding along the coast.
How did you come up with the name 'Elle Affairs'?
This is rather simple. I wanted something that was personal to me + my family but was searching for something other than my name. My last name is Lott so I finally narrowed in on using the first letter of my last name, "L" but spelled out as "Elle".
What is something special/unique you offer your brides?
I offer customizable packages for full planning + design, partial planning + day of coordination so the wedding planning package you choose is exactly what the couple desires. I also send special 'welcome gifts' to congratulate the bride and groom and welcome them to the Elle Affairs family!
What inspires you?
I am inspired by many things in my daily life, but a few things that leave me refreshed and inspired are color - I love experimenting with different color pallets and working with 'non-traditional' wedding colors; the sea - the fresh salt water air and the amazing beauty of the ocean and it's millions of ripples leaves me dreaming of new ideas; creative friends - there is something so great about brainstorming and being creative with friends, this always leaves me content and thankful for the community of creatives in Birmingham!
In 3 words, how would you describe your personal style?
My personal style in three words : simple, romantic, vintage
