It’s finally time to post about our big bash in September!! Justin and I tied the knot on September 12th and it couldn’t of been a more beautiful day (even though it was raining)!
As you know, when I cover weddings, I love to capture the details of the day (One of my favorite parts, since it really captures the mood of the entire event). I mentioned this to our EXTREMELY talented photographer, Tiffany Atlas, and her beautiful coverage blew us away! Here are a couple of her details (after the jump!):
We wanted to support small businesses and artists for our big day, so we bought the majority of the wedding items on Etsy! One designer, Andrea from Everyday Grace made our stationary from her house in Texas!
Flowers were made by my friend and very talented lady, Mary Elizabeth McVeigh! We had worked together for one wedding and I loved her simply graceful touch to all the flower arrangements, so I decided to go with her for our wedding. I’ve been happy ever since! Her flowers were absolutely amazing, better than I ever could have imagined! My jewelry was all Givenchy.
Here’s amazing Allen Cline, stylist at Pagave Salon. I’ve gone to him since middle school, so he’s like family to me and it was so great to have him there! Also, makeup was done by the talented Fo sisters, Jen and Jess. Amazing ladies, I’ve worked with them in the past for fashion shoots and I’ve always had a blast!
Walking up the aisle with my dad, probably the most surreal moment of the day! And the sweetest!
Yes, we did an uneven bridal party, but they sure looked great! 🙂
Our cute little ringbearer, Xavier. You can see his grandmother in the back laughing at his shenanigans! The ring pillow was designed by Etsian Irene of 5eizen!
Apparently, we weren’t allowed to have confetti at the church, only bubbles, but someone didn’t get the memo (ahem, little brothers). But man, does it make for great pictures (and getting in your hair and clothes)! My bolero was handmade by another artist on Etsy, Angelika, from Tel-Aviv, Israel!
Big ol’ kiss!
Us posing for Tiffany and her assistant at Goodstay Center (we fell in love with the extensive garden in the back!):
His ring: Spexton
As you can see, it was pretty wet out 🙁 But overcast skies make for gorgeous photos, so we couldn’t complain!
My lovely girls! Best friend since we were 5 on the left and my sister on the right. Aren’t they gorgeous?!
I love how Justin is a head taller than everyone in my family!
Mary Elizabeth provided the beautiful birdcage for our wedding cards and we had a “Best Wedding Wishes” tree for guests to hang up advice and best wishes on the tags we bought from Story By Mia on Etsy! We loved the little notes!
One of our centerpieces (the other was a tall vase of roses and ribbon around the glass!) We held up our menus with wine corks to pay tribute to MY love of wine, sorry Justin! 😀 We bought the wine cork holders from Corkey Creations on Etsy! We also had interchanging lilac and ivory flower napkin rings for each setting, made by MandyCrafts on Etsy as well!
Our last huge detail was the cake, which was designed by Dragonfly of Bing’s Bakery! The flowers were added by Mary Elizabeth and the cute bird toppers were a gift from Justin to me on our past Valentine’s, made by Etsian Cynthia of Red Light Studio!
Emma’s embarrassing toast, recalling a particular embarrassing childhood moment! Oy vey!
Dancing with our wonderful parents:
My brother Mike is rocking it with my uncles from Texas, Tom, Chris, and John, THE EGGMEN!
The legendary Uncle Chris!
Uncle John, having an epic moment! (with Uncle Tom and Aunt Rita rocking it out in the background!)
Joey’s got the moves!
My attempt at disco and Justin just accepting who I am. 🙂
My adorable grandparents from England (and apparently I’m very surprised by an exciting dip by Justin in the background)
My Dad and Uncle Chris, rock legends!
Party ova here!
I think everyone is doing the “AHHHHH” buildup from Twist and Shout.
My Aunt Rita sing Say A Little Prayer by Aretha. She was amazing!
My close friends/family, Bart and Dustin Frohlich singing “Love and Some Verses” by Iron and Wine (i was getting teary-eyed then :P) and “Rocky Raccoon” by the Beatles (Justin’s favorite song of the Beatles)
Mom and Dad singing as well as Megan with my brother Mikey playing guitar. We were so moved that our close family came together to sing songs that meant so much to me and Justin!
Flower toss, what what.
Emma catches it of course…I think she cheats.
Half of our guests though this little stunt by J-man was HI-larious, while others took it the wrong way and were disgusted. Thanks, babe.
Alex, Justin’s best friend is obviously very excited in catching the garter.
Two best friends, very uncomfortable.
Pretending to clean up and then….
But we made up! 🙂
Hope you enjoyed and if you made it through all of these photos, I’m very impressed, because I ended up putting alot more up than expected!
Next post on our life should be ARUBA, the honeymoon! Man I want to go back, just typing about it!
