jeff & andy are not only the funniest people we have ever met but they really know how to do a wedding up right! they started the day out at the biltmore hotel, los angeles which was such a vintage-y treat! everything was just so classic & exquisite in every way!
andy’s dazzling polka dotted tea length number had us ooohing & ahhhing & drooling a bit as well, OMG we LOVED her cute retro veil & shoes to the max! jeff cleaned real nice as well, & schooled us on the use of a shoehorn. which was something i should have known how to use, haha! there was so much swagger going on that day, along with pretty much everything we laid our eyes on, all of the details were nothing less than first rate!!
then just as we didn’t think it could get any better, we headed off to the legendary park plaza hotel for the wedding! & let me tell you this wedding made us weep like a willow. i haven’t cried like that since watching the notebook. there is no doubt in our minds that these two found their soul mate in one another. they just go together like butter goes with corn on the cob. it’s unanimous,
we LOVE jeff & andy!
this was one of the most happiest, sweetest, & most genuine weddings we have ever photographed!
we all wept happy tears though out the day, as well as laughed our faces off so much when we asked the guys to dance while brandon played his banjo. it was just a wee bit of impromptu-hoe-down that we will never ever forget!
just that head-shaking wonderful stuff that the good things in life brings on! :)
lizzy is such a natural beauty, she is so free spirited & just incredible in every way, we knew from the minute we met her when she had fresh flowers in her hair that she was our kind of gal. ;)
this wedding was just so dang lovely, the sunshine came out to say hi, & the whole place was covered with bright happy summer colors & flowers that made our hearts so cheery.
the live music was just as superb as it gets, the florist was such an outstanding talent, along with brandons mom, who made all of the bow ties using vintage materials!
lizzy & brandon have hearts of gold & are such incredible people, we wish them many happy years together!
celeste & justin’s nautical wedding was so much fun & mystic was such an unbelievably charming place to have it. OMG when we found out it was nautical inspired we were so super excited!! we were swooning over the happy colors & details alllll day long. we especially loved the engraving in the rings which read, ‘good journey’ which is a family saying & so meaningful. these two sweethearts have lots in common with us, as they love to see the world together & travel all the time! celeste & justin are such beautiful people with such amazing hearts & we know they will have such a good journey together as husband & wife!!
alicia & tony are so cute together & are going to make such great parents! omg, they really brought the inspiration out of us, spending time photographing them in the california sunshine was so heartwarming & beautiful. we just scooped up our film cameras & headed out to the countryside, & omg they blew our minds with their sincere love & stellar style. these cuties are so carefree, natural, relaxed & full of love. can’t wait to soon be meeting their new little fellow. ;)
the murphy & english families are among the most gracious & sweetest people in this whole wide world!!! they flew us out to their canada farm to document the wonderful wedding of hollis & jason, we instantly fell in love with the place & everything that we laid our eyes on was like a total dream, i think canada might be our most favorite place ever!! from the soil to the food to the people to the air to all of the antiques to the love that hollis & jason have for one another! oh they go so adorable together!
the food, omg the food, let me tell you that i could zip my pants up just fine in california, but after a few days on the murphy farm,& i had to do the ol’ lay down to zip up trick!
grandma made the wedding cakes & the bread was all fresh & yummy, the vegetables were super fresh from the garden, homemade cinnamon rolls in the morning, & OMG mrs. english makes the best lasagna in the world! not to mention the family style 20 course meal that was served at the wedding! ;)
now let me tell you a little bit about this wedding,,,
my gosh, so many giving & hardworking people helped with the wedding in so many ways, we were watching all of the hands & hearts that went into making the day so absolutely wonderful! it was truly amazing on so many levels!
the whole place was covered with tons of amazing antiques & oodles of homemade diy details, hollis even made her brooch bouquet the day of the wedding!
fun wagon rides were provided to the guests taking them from the breathtaking wedding site & back to the super fantastic reception site.
the most fun-loving band played & the family even entertained an open bar!
