holly + aj (wedding), part one

can i tell you... i love my job? I LOVE MY JOB.

there are some days that remind me of this very simple fact. holly and aj's wedding happened to be one of those days. throughout the day, i felt kind of like this:


whee!

if i had to pick one word to fit their big day, it would be details. this bride has style, let me tell you. almost everything was DIY- the flowers, the decorations, the little touches that were pulled together in such a classic yet current and cutting edge way. vintage, summer, shabby chic. i loved every beautiful minute.

there are so many great shots that i want to share, this is only part one of two. i'm saving the sugared lemon centerpieces for next time... stay tuned, your mouth will water. :)

this was in lieu of a traditional guestbook. guests placed their thumb in either light green or yellow ink, then literally left their print on this picture. what a great keepsake for aj and holly to have in their home!

















the bride's bouquet had charms pinned to the base... a personalized present from each and every one of her bridesmaids. these charms represented something that each girl wanted holly to "carry" with her into her marriage. here are the oh-so-cute flower girl and her handsome ringbearer brother checking out the little gifts. :)







the bride's best friend was a huge hit with her stories during the toast... she was a natural and had absolutely everyone's attention!




that's all i have time to share today. part two- including even more details and shots from the ceremony, coming soon!
