sneak peek . . . a BIG sneak peek!

As you know, Amy and Aaron entered the realm of Mr. & Mrs. on June 19th. Their wedding was all kinds of sublime. My plan is to make their wedding a feature wedding on my website (that's how much I loved it!). Although the site gallery will feature many more photos than today's post, it won't be put up for about a month or two. Therefore, I wanted to give you a pretty big sneak peek of their event most fantastic.

Photography by the most talented Miss Kate Osborne.

Amy & Aaron underneath the tree, k.i.s.s.i.n.g.! One of my favorite images of the bride & groom:

Always a bridesmaid . . . and loving it! Who wouldn't love to be a bridesmaid with dresses and flowers like these:

One of the best features about the venue were the large trees, particularly this unbelievably beautiful tree which has branches overhanging the reception. To best utilize this decor asset, we hung Martha Stewart paper flowers (which were beyond adorable), and hanging masons jars which alternated floating votives and various shades of pink peonies. This tree became a real focal piece of the wedding!

under the tree, the bride and groom could be found receiving their guests in front of an iron archway featuring large floral pieces which were stunning, to say the very least.
In the center of the archway, we hung a distressed birdcage filled with mason jar arrangements. Gorgeous!

As guests arrived, they were greeted with this one of a kind, showstopping fresh wreath hung on an antique, distressed door. What a great prelude to the event!
some of the corsages & boutonnieres:

this cake was the perfect choice for the garden party event:

a few of my favorite centerpiece photos - the hydrangea were some of the most beautiful I've ever seen:

the decor pieces were all quite grandiose, so for many of the centerpieces, we opted to go with minimalistic blooms in hob-knob vases. It was the perfect balance next to all the larger pieces:

the buffet, close up:

Leading up to the spot where the couple received their guests, the path was adorned with freestanding shepherd's hooks featuring hanging mason jar arrangements which were most adorable:

And last (but certainly not least) are a few of my favorite bouquet photos. Amy's bouquet is one of my all-time favorites because it was the perfect fit for her vision, it embodied beauty, and because I've never seen another one like it!

Amy made a simply stunning bride. What a pleasure to work with you, Amy! Thanks, thanks!

Wow. You really out did yourself! Everything was so breath taking, and that was just the photos, so I'm sure the actual event knocked people off their feet! (I know your feet got knocked off for awhile after! :)
