The lovely Laura Dart, who photographed our wedding, recently put up some of the photos from our big day on her blog!
Choosing a photographer for our wedding was not an easy task. As you can imagine, I’m picky- and there was much fret over it. When a mutual friend recommended her to me, I was thrilled! I knew that Laura’s style would mesh perfectly with the aesthetics and vibe of our wedding- and of course, she did not disappoint. Not only did she do a spectacular job documenting our day, but I am happy to now call her a friend. A win-win situation if you ask me.
The photos I’d like to share with you today are just some of my favorites from her post. Please have a look at her blog to see them all.
A few words:
John and I were married in a apple orchard, under a driftwood chuppah that we made ourselves. Almost all of our wedding, actually- from the tables we ate on, to the salt & pepper holders, bread platters and signs- was handmade (with love!) by the two of us.
I’ll admit it, it was a little crazy at times- and in the midst of making everything, we joked that maybe we had “taken on too much”. In the end though, we wouldn’t have had it any other way. Eating dinner in the secret garden, looking around at the beautiful people and the beauty we had created- it all felt so personal, so us- just as it should be.
Since the wedding, we’ve given most of the bread platters and the salt & pepper holders away to friends and family. Some of the tables have been given away, others broken apart and repurposed for our new wooden bed frame (more on that later). So you see, we’ve put everything to good use.
Thank you for letting me blab about the wedding again! Hope you enjoy the photos as much we do.
