Amy wasn’t the type to be forced into a traditional bridal portrait so we didn’t push it. Her career is to be in nature and soak it all up as an interpretive naturalist. Amy spent her wedding day naming trees and plants and refusing to wear shoes- the last thing she is meant to do outside is stand still. . Instead we led her outside just after the sun had dipped, played Mt. Joy per her new husband's request, and asked her to just enjoy the moment. She picked wildflowers, danced with her husband, and got her feet dirty. It was a moment where everyone was incandescently happy and truly themselves - something we work really hard to make space for on a chaotic wedding day. . We always tell couples that they’ll look back on their gallery and see moments instead of posed photos, and man, if barefoot Amy doesn’t prove that, I don’t know what will.
How to make your tablescapes/centerpieces to DIE FOR ⬇️ If you’re a classic overthinker/researcher like me, I know you spent HOURS trying to create a perfect tablescape for your wedding. It’s not something we do on an everyday basis and it’s SO hard visualizing the room and making it look unique. Here’s a few of my faves from the past year and a few tips: * Incorporate varying textures and colors. Your linens don’t have to match your bridesmaid dresses exactly and don’t stress if the gold candlesticks don’t match the vases exactly. Mix it up! * Simple is sometimes better. See the cute lil chapstick and linen plate marker? Cute, elegant, and affordable. * Mix it up between tables. You can have statement centerpieces on one table with a mix of candles on the other - it will provide variety throughout the room * Trust your florist/decorator and give them creative freedom (more on this later). They know what works best and gives the room dynamic! * A few of my faves if you scroll through - which one are you absolutely obsessed with?
I’m posting twice in a row today because two couples got married yesterday in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and they need to be CELEBRATED. The way all the vendors and humans same together yesterday overwhelms me. From @rubymoonflowerfarm flower crown and bouquet that literally exceeded all imagined expectations to everyones hearts practically bursting when Katelyn saw the little embroidery Quentin had @onefinedaybridal sneakily sew in her dress. And guys, I wish you could have felt the moment where their guests sang the Diocese acapella after they shared their first kiss. Intimate weddings are so powerful and are not to be underrated. Maybe a blessing in disguise that more of these will be happening this year ❤️
I’m posting twice in a row today because two couples got married yesterday in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and they need to be CELEBRATED. These two said vows on the land that they’ll build a house and raise a family on. Family and friends gathered and cheered from afar and literally every ounce of joy and happiness still existed, and will again when they celebrate at the reception in six weeks. Proud of our couples is an understatement. ❤️ Associate Shot by @madi_indigolace
By far the best quarantine activity has been utilizing a hands free running leash to no, not run with the dog, but to walk the dog and drink a beer at the same time. Never regret your impulse purchases folks, they might just come in handy two years later in the middle of a pandemic.
If you had 5 minutes to grab your most prized possessions and leave your house, what are the 5 nonessential belongings you would grab? - If your answer is your wedding photos, stop and think. Are your wedding photos actually in physical form? Or are they just a filename floating around in the cloud/on your computer? - Your photos DON’T EXIST until they are printed. There I said it. Until they are in physical form, they’re just a .jpg.
