After narrowing down our favorites from Amy and Drew’s wedding to 140 images, I asked Steve if that was an acceptable number of photos for a blog post. He just rolled his eyes (one of the many reasons we’re hiring a marketing intern this year). If you know any fantastic graphic design or marketing geniuses please send them our way. We have an internship position available for this summer, and we’re now accepting resumes!
Two weeks ago we had the honor of working with not only a fabulous couple, but also a wonderful team of creatives. If the lovely couple wasn’t available to be photographed there was never a shortage of delightful details to occupy our lenses.
I loved this blue handkerchief Amy carried down the aisle, and it even included a piece of lace from her mother’s wedding dress. Although this photo was taken in one of the nursery rooms of the church you would never know it. I was able to close the blinds on some of the windows to help keep the background a little darker, and opening a small gap in the curtains of the window at camera right gave us some beautiful, soft and directional light to illuminate their faces. I think this is one of my favorite images from the wedding. And thankfully I was able to keep the Noah’s Arc stickers out of the background. This logo Amy and Drew had designed for their wedding is adorable. If you caught their engagement photos we posted on Facebook a while back you’ll remember that we included a few culinary-themed photos, and you might be able to guess that cooking is one of their favorite things to do together. A quick pre-ceremony photo shoot…On loan to Amy and Drew for their getaway was this amazing Mustang.Unfortunately it wouldn’t start, but some enthusiastic volunteers helped them make a trip around the parking lot. Suede bridesmaids shoes in vibrant spring colors!Each bridesmaid carried a white flower of a different variety that matched up with a groomsmen’s boutonniere. And each groomsman wore a pocket square that was handmade by Amy’s mother.
I loved the look of the amber iced tea with the blue linens (which varied in shades of dark blue to white in a beautiful ombre pattern, designed by Emilie Duncan), and the way the sun made the whole room sparkle. Reception guests found their table number in recipe boxes and could leave well wishes and advice on recipe cards in a cookbook.
At Amy and Drew’s ceremony one of the readers recited “Twelve Rules for a Happy Marriage” from a newspaper clipping that was found in the desk of Amy’s grandfather, which he had kept with him through his entire marriage to Amy’s grandmother. It was framed and displayed at their reception.
