I am overjoyed to be sharing Arielle and Andrew’s wedding today. They are such a special couple and planning their wedding was absolutely wonderful. Arielle and Andrew lived in California throughout the entire planning process. Arielle was in school full-time and therefore, we had to be creative in our planning meetings together. It was filled with many Skype calls, emails galore, inspiration lookbooks, and lots of texting. We had so much fun and through it all, we established a trust and friendship that allowed for their wedding day to be seamless and absolutely gorgeous. They were a picture-perfect bride and groom, all smiles and laughter, celebrating with their closest friends and family.
Ahhh…I smile as I go through their wedding album because together we designed a soft, romantic, joyous ceremony and reception filled with lavender aroma and mouth watering cookie favors that were almost too pretty to eat (but don’t worry, that didn’t stop people from eating them…. myself included!)
My all time favorite moment of their wedding was when their fabulous photographer wanted to get some shots by the river. Well, the gate to the river was locked, so the groomsmen picked Arielle up and lifted her gracefully over the fence. This happened during the cocktail hour so everyone cheered and applauded as the group successfully carried her over the fence.
