This last weekend I had the honor of watching one of my dearest friends get married. The ceremony was simple and beautiful (Just imagine walking down the aisle to Jean-Yves Thibaudet’s “A Postcard to Henry Purcell!), set in an acoustic dream of a chapel, and the reception followed shortly after at a nearby barn used for events.
Here are my thoughts/observations of the joyous evening:
The Bride and Groom!
Statement pieces made from vintage jewelry is a thoughtful and special wedding gift. In this case, given by the groom to his beautiful bride.
Love Sarah's colorful straw bracelet-perfect for this outdoor summer event..
As are these shoes! Cowboy boots & burlap TOMS fit the barn setting of the reception.
We took advantage of "Golden Hour" to do a quick photoshoot. More about Katherine's adventures to come: www.beinghere-gettingthere.com
Rachel always looks like she's stepped out of an Anthropologie catalogue, but in this setting, it was especially evident. Notice the usual fall colors are given a summer flair with the cut of the dress and loose top.
Rachel & Mark. This mini-photoshoot was perfection mixed with much hilarity.
These wonderful people are not only gracious & generous hosts of garden parties, baking sessions, and last minute overnights, but they also know how to dress for a wedding. By this time of the evening, the bow tie & seersucker jacket had been discarded due to the temperature, but David had been sporting one of the most fabulous wedding ensembles for men I have seen in a long time.
This stylish family certainly knew how to dress their daughter for a summer wedding--by pinning that pink roset to the front of her sundress (pictured here in her hair), they added a dramatic touch that not many children can pull off.
All in all, a delightful countryside celebration– Congrats, Allison & Will!
