I'm so glad I stumbled on your TR. We actually talked about your wedding at my PS (my planner is Ken) while drooling over photos of your cake. Everything looks incredible!

Haha! I'm pretty sure Ken is going to try to sell that cake to every person now! He seemed almost as excited about it as I was!

At this point we started doing "posed" pictures of the two of us. It all felt really easy and natural though.

Fun picture for me to point out buttons. I have more than just a slight obsession with them. Evan's coat has horn buttons (I almost did glass, but thought that might be a bit much). Mine are "death head" buttons. Since this isn't an 18th century site, I'll explain that I covered wooden buttons with thread that creates a particular pattern akin to the pirate cross bones.

They took a few individuals of me for the gown and we decided to see what happened to the huge skirt when I spin. Totally going for little girl fantasies right here:

Have to have the picture of the picture being taken:

And the goal of the day seemed to be making me laugh. Which happened a lot.

We then ran through our first dance, which was definitely not choreographed to go with this gown. Or a top hat. But it was fun and made for some great pictures!


One of the most awesome things about the location we shot in was the light. It was a small portico just between the Beach Club and the Villas. So much fun to play with.


I love lattices.

Some more session shots before we got ready to move on to the ceremony.
The requisite hand shot from the Roots (love it!):


I realized after that this shot actually forms a heart. It's a really nice location, but I could imagine it being far busier during warmer months.


One more classic lattice shot:


The bouquet I had was inspired by a 1930s image my planner had found and certainly looked the part:



Bring in the bridesmaids! We were oh so glad that we choose to build coats and caplets. It was very chilly that day and they were the perfect weight.


I have no clue what we're trying to do here except look funny


The whole crew. And no, the two groomsmen are not related. They hadn't even met until the wedding! Nic (on the left) was Evan's college roommate and Mike (on the right) is in the Navy and Erin's (right again) husband. If that's not confusing think about the fact that we have me, Nicole, my bridesmaid Nicki (but technically Nicole), and groomsman Nic.


The groomsmen's suits came from Carolyn Allens. Their top hats were their "gift" and boy were they excited about them. The bridesmaids designed their own gowns and the coats/muffs were their gifts.


It was at this point we all headed to the lobby to go our separate ways. I stayed there to wait for the Rolls to be ready. Of course, I had one of the DFTW people with me so I was never out of the loop. I even answered a few questions for Reverend Knox that way! The bridal party and photographers walked over to SBP to meet with Ken and get ready. Once I walked out to the car someone stayed in the lobby to meet with Evan's family and escort them to SBP.
I have to admit, of the entire day I felt most like a princess when I was sitting in the car waiting. The weather had warmed enough for people to be out and everyone that passed by waved and offered congratulations. Sitting on the sidewalk right behind the Beach Club was apparently a high traffic area! We even had to shoo away the growing group of men oogling the car to get going.

A few good pictures pre-guests as the photographers arrived at SBP. The chairs are the standard ones now. The urns with palm leaves and peacock feathers are the only decoration we had. They moved them to the reception after.


Such a beautiful view from there. It may have been chilly, but the sky was clear and the day so bright.


I had custom petal cones made. I used the logo from our invitations (the lighthouse at the Yacht Club).


Our Jazz Trio. I honestly don't remember anything about them. I obviously didn't get to hang around before the ceremony and was a bit distracted once I got there. I payed attention to them at the reception and they sounded great there. I do faintly remember hearing When You Wish Upon a Star, but until I got the pictures I didn't even remember where they were at SBP!


Our wedding planner, Ken Weaver, being all sorts of organized. Probably calling me with questions in this picture...


Nicki taking a few moments to go over their speech for later (aka making trouble):


And Nathan being....Nathan?


My family arriving and milling about.


All the guests have arrived so the bridal party line up to get ready!


I was secretly sneaking up behind them in the car by this point and could see most of what was going on. Not much time left until the ceremony begins!

Hi Nicole! Just wanted to say I love that you are the "face" of the Roots new blog—I absolutely adore that shot of you, and your wedding's fabulous style is perfect for their new site.

Can't wait to read the next installment!

I just have to say this has got to be one of the most gorgeous weddings I have ever seen! Also, and I hope you take this well and wear it as a compliment you look exactly like Juliette Binoche. One of my fave actresses.

Well done!

I refreshed that blog page at least five times, expecting it to be on a rotation or something!

Thank you! I can definitely see some resemblance. I get asked a lot if I'm French, which I'm not at all!

The car begins to sneak up on SBP. We stopped just after crossing the bridge so we could hear the music, but not be seen. Waited for the cue from Ken and kept rolling.


The bridesmaids entered to The Way You Look Tonight, and the groomsmen/groom came in to Let's Misbehave.
I don't know if this is the bridal party coming up or if everyone has caught on. Wait, the multitude of top hats up front says they're looking for the car...


I love this car so much (I have framed pictures of it up around the house!)


The big moment of the day. Yes, making sure you can get out of the car without falling flat on your face or ripping your gown!


Just a little bit windy that day


I won't bore you with the five-gazillion shots of us standing in the same position looking goofy, so here's just one:


One of two small issues that day; I apparently tie a complicated bow system. Who knew? The other was when some idiot on the street yelled "Don't do it!". But don't worry, he won't ruin your wedding. My bridesmaids gave him a look that surely disintegrated him.


The Kiss


Making our exit to De-Lovely being pelted with petals (which don't really pelt, but that's why I don't like rice!)


On a completely unrelated note, my 15 lb puppy is sleeping next to me on the sofa and snoring as loudly as my husband. I think she's taken over his jobs during his deployment.....
