You know those perfect wedding days that you see in movies? You know the ones; the daughter has met an amazing man to spend her life with. She comes back to her childhood home to get dressed in her bedroom. Mom makes the dress, Dad greets her at the bottom of the stairs with sparkling proud eyes, well this is it!
Julia and Alex met in Mexico. After waiting, anxiously, for the papers to come thru from immigration I got the call from Julia’s Mom, Sue. “Can you come photograph Julia and Alex’s civil wedding?!” Of-course I said, “OMG!! Yes!!”
All the special meaningful details through out this day just melt my heart. The bride’s Mother, Sue, is a very creative and talented lady! Sue made Julia’s amazing tea length dress. The lace details over the illusion netting are from Sue’s own wedding gown. She also crochet Julia’s delicate little shall and sewed the little grey flannel suit the ring bearer, Snoopy is wearing!(Because both families love Snoopy!) Alex’s tie is borrowed from Chris, Julia’s Dad. (Which was a pretty funny moment to witness as Julia approved a handful for Alex to select from.)
It’s always such an honor to be a part of weddings that are this special. Sometimes the simplest events are the most beautiful. I’ll be sharing more of these cuties after their wedding reception party this summer at the Old Lantern Inn and Barn!
