Our Wedding Story

I'm excited to finally be able to share our wedding with you (at least a longer version than this post).  For those of you who don't know, B and I got married a little more than a month ago.  We had a small courthouse wedding on a Tuesday afternoon.  
Some fun tidbits about our wedding day:
*B got a bloody nose on the steps of the courthouse, right before we walked in.
*All of the courtrooms were full so our very nice judge suggested that we get married outside.  It was perfect!
*I cried through much of the ceremony much to my surprise (but not to my makeup artist who layered me up with waterproof everything thank goodness).
*There was little wedding planning involved. We kept it simple and small and loved every second.

Here's the breakdown of what we wore:  dress- Anthropologie (it went on sale right after I bought it, you can imagine my disgust) shoes- UO, B's suit and tie - J.Crew, B's shirt- Banana Republic, flowers in my hair- Ban.do, flower on B's lapel EmersonMade, birdcage veil twigs & honey, photographer Mike Knapp (he can be reached at mikeknapp84@gmail.com), photographer of 5th photo- Keith Rein


 Thank you for all of the love and support you've shown us throughout this whole process.  From the moment we got engaged, we have been cheered onward and we are so thankful for all of you. More photos can be seen here and here.

Toni said...

Beautiful! There are so many times I wish we would have done something like this for our wedding. It's so easy to get caught up in all the details that you lose sight of the love and joy of the person you're marrying. You look beautiful and I love your dress and veil. Congratulations to both of you and best wishes!

Where in the world did you find those amazing shoes in picture 6? I'm not even a shoe girl but they'd be perfect for when I get married.
