I thought I’d share:
a few rad polaroids from our amazing officiant, Ann “Moxiee” McGarry.  I LOVED seeing “our kiss” from her perspective since you rarely see that photo.  it was so fun to look at the smiles on our guests!!

happy friday, friends!!  I’m so glad you liked the photos from our wedding.  makes my heart swell.  xoxo



A + L = love

I hope you don’t mind me sharing some more photos and details from our wedding with you today.  ready?

our wedding was a dream.  after months of planning, it was so much fun to see things unveil throughout the day.  from the invitations to the dessert table, each and every detail was planned and formulated by us.  proof that you don’t need a planner for a pretty wedding!

my dress: “once worn” J. Crew gown from Pre-Owned Wedding Dresses
my pearls:  my “something borrowed” from my mom & grandmother
my hairKira Pinski did an amazing job with my hair.  she flipped and curled and played around until we found a style that suited me best.  I picked out two airplants that I had her attach in my hair and we even sang wedding songs while she was dolling me up!
DLB’s outfit:  suit – J. Crew, shirt – Nordstrom, shoes – Cole Haan
tiesFieldguided with Liberty of London fabric.
invites & paper goods:  all designed, letterpressed, stamped, tied and typed by DLB and me.
flowers & centerpieces: the wonderfully talented Megan from Fieldwork Floral Operation put together our bouquets and provided all the plants for our center pieces.  I told her I like weird and unusual but still graceful and she did such a great job.  I ordered all the airplants online, purchased the cloches, amber reagent bottles, 20ml graduated cylinders and 100ml beakers and gave her a semi-set up but really just told her to have at it.  I la la la LOVED what she did, especially the little nasturtiums in the tiny graduated cylinders.  my bouquet was a combination of pale peach roses, scented geranium, green blackberries, string of pearls and tillandsia and it was tied off with my something old, my great-grandmother’s hanky.
catering & pies: Phresh Organic Catering.  we served meat burgers, bean burgers and fancy sausages as our main food, combo’d with some incredible sides.
pound cake: made by my favorite baker, my mom.  this is the same pound cake she used to overnight to me on special occasions when I was in college!
cake flags: Herriott Grace
venue: Bridal Veil Lakes, a beautiful venue surrounding a lake in the mid­dle of the old growth for­est in the Colum­bia River Gorge, complete with wildlife from our wildlife cheat sheet: salamanders in the lake, dragonflies, a few little chipmunks and a baby bear!  95% of our guests trav­eled from out of town for our wed­ding, so we wanted them to fall in love with the Oregon outdoors, just as we had on our first adventures in the Pacific Northwest.
photography:  Erin of Erin Grace Photography was truly a dream to work with.  she captured some incredible moments and I’m so lucky to have found her!

I want to graciously thank the ladies at 100 Layer Cake for featuring our wedding among so many other gorgeous Real Weddings.  I feel so special, really ladies!  if you missed it this morning, hop over to 100 Layer Cake for some more photos from our day.

thanks for letting me share more photos from our wedding with you.  it was truly the most amazing, memorable, love-filled day of my life.

I’m still enjoying:
newlywed bliss.  {look at my handsome husband!}

I’m thinking about:
dragging out my old film camera again.  it’s been awhile.

I think I want everything:
from the new Fall {!?!} arrivals at Frances May.

I’m really looking forward to:
a getaway to Willamette Valley wine country with dlb this weekend!
sipping on some fine fine Pinot Noir.
with a stop at the Aviation & Space Museum on the way home.

sorry to only give you little peaks of the wedding my friends!  it’s been killing me not being able to share our special day with you, but as many of you who’ve had professional photographers know, it takes eons to get your photos but it’s well worth the wait.  lucky for us, a lot of our guests were exceptionally good photographers so we’ve seen quite a few great shots, like this one from our friend Ann {aka Moxiee} who just happened to officiate our wedding.  more details soon, I promise!  until then… I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  chat with you Monday!
