a journey toward non-traditional wedded bliss, with style

Local Love August 27, 2009

Remember the couple from A Picnic Wedding? Well the actual event occurred last weekend, and despite all sorts of near disasters (rain, cancellations, a visit to the emergency room) everything worked out in the end, and the whole event was absolutely beautiful.

I just love weddings where every detail is a clue to the couple’s personalities, and this one was one of the best examples I’ve seen. Both the bride and groom are very involved with their community, and are passionate about trying to live as green and locally as they can. Almost every detail was handmade, and every detail had meaning. In fact there were just so many moments that were tear-jerkingly sweet that I think I should rename this the Warm & Fuzzy wedding.

To summarize briefly: the ceremony was in a beautiful little church with a gospel choir, the whole wedding party travelled in petty cabs to the reception closeby, the food was all local and organic (including the best lavender iced tea ever!), the flowers were put together by the bride and friends that morning, and dancing was under the stars. Here are just a few of the many, many pictures we took!

    The tables look quite elegant and perfect on the stony steps. Hhmm, I think this is a brilliant idea. Love the outdoor ambiance and the candles sparkling creates a romantic mood for the newly weds and guests.
