Allison Garrett has done it again! The first shots of our wedding are back and she has blown me away once more! The girl is good. Really, really good. I mean, really!
The top two are from our ceremony held at the Sunken Gardens here in Lincoln. We completely lucked out on the weather and place--dappled sunshine, perfect temperature, flowers blooming everywhere. Just right for all the flowery dresses of the wedding party. The top right photo is my grandmother and S's mom (my new mother-in-law!) releasing monarch butterflies at the end of the wedding. These little creatures have always reminded me of my mother who couldn't be with us. I can't begin to say what it meant to me to have these two very special people send them off into the gardens and up into the sky. My grandmother is wearing a sun hat I had made for her by Kathi at Hat-a-tude. You can't see it in this shot but the hat has three big beautiful roses on one side. Needless to say, my babci (Polish for grandmother) was really working it.
The bottom two shots were taken just before the reception held at our home. We just love our neighborhood (we have block parties every few months) and, well, we're writers so we're homebodies--it seemed the perfect thing to do. The photos also show two of my favorite details of the whole weekend. In the bottom left photo, the sweet monogram sign was made by Laura of TextStyle--more here in my previous post. She sent the piece all the way from Alaska--which rhymes with Nebraska but is much, much farther away! In the bottom right photo is the perfect hair flora from Kelly of K. Autumn. More on the hairpin here and here.
Can I just say again how amazing Allison is? We were so happy to get to spend the day with her. I can't wait to work together again soon!
