hello! okay, so i have been dying to share this with everyone! a year of planning and a pretty intense couple of weeks led to this…my wedding and marriage to my mr. sean!
i worked with amazing people and a lovely photographer: Courtney Wilson. when i first met with courtney, i knew she would be shooting our wedding. our style and ideas were very similar. she is getting married in september and as we were trading ideas we realized we shared many details…right down to our future husbands name (sean!), our dress designer (melissa sweet!) and a homespun desserts table.
these are just some of the photos courtney has sent me (and given me permission to share ASAP!). i can’t wait to see the rest!
about the wedding:
sean and i had been engaged 4 1/2 years prior to our wedding day. we took our time, finished school and pinched our pennies to throw a wedding that we hoped would be full of fun, food, family and much dancing. we chose amazing vendors that helped us create an event that was uniquely us. many of the details were DIY, including all of the decor, the favors, and the desserts. with the much needed help and support of my amazingly talented best friends, i spent the weeks before making the tuile pom-poms, canning jam, sewing flags, paper-crafting banners and food labels, creating a guest tree, and finally…baking desserts. my best friend, maid of honor, and hair stylist extroidinaire, brooke did all of our hair. she is amazingly talented. she also brought me back from the edge more than once ;) my friends bailey and josh made all of the bow-ties. my oldest friend katie ran errands and fetched coffee like a pro. my dear friend amber officiated our wedding with the sweetest words and most tender thoughts. sean created a killer playlist of songs that have a lot of meaning to us–courtney even discovered her new favorite song, “to be young” by ryan adams!–along with plenty of dance jams a la michael jackson, whitney (before the crack made her wack) and some vintage madonna. we asked our wedding party to follow a loose dress code: vests and slacks with homemade bowties for the boys. garden party dresses for the ladies. it was truly an amazing and unforgettable day.
i have so much more to share and its all still a bit overwhelming, but i will surely share more as the photos come in!
