First comes love, then comes a baby, then comes marriage. That’s how the saying goes, right? Maybe that’s not how it goes but things seemed to work out A-O-K with Andrea, Nate, and baby Oliver. Andrea’s a graphic designer and her eye for all things visual was apparent. They took “DIY wedding” to the extreme with all their lovely details. Andrea’s paper flower bouquet was unlike anything I had seen in all my weddings, I love the addition of the yarn poms to soften the look. Something unique that they did for the ceremony was have everyone grab a cap gun when they got there, when the couple kissed the guests all fired their cap guns and blew their bubbles. And I can’t say I’ve ever had a balloon launch at one of my weddings before (but really should have). The guests all took turns aiming a wobbly waterballon at a target over a hedge (or any passers by). So. much. fun. The Prettiest You did a really great job with makeup and hair and Boneshakin BBQ made such good food (they even made BBQ tofu and veggie beans!). All those fabulous details and orchestration of the day went without a hitch (except the part when Andrea and Nate got hitched) thanks to Jessica Church and crew at Bash Weddings and Events. The most poignant image of the day for me was the image of her nursing her baby in her wedding dress. I’ll add – in her adorable, tea-length, vintage wedding dress. The tiny house that we took photos in was her grandmother’s playhouse when she was a child. We (June Lion) set up a photo booth and you can see those wacky photos here. At the end of the night the family showed them to their honeymoon hut isolated in the woods (a comfy bed in a screened-in hut), the path to it lined with candles. The perfect end. Special thanks to Erica Bader for being my trusty second shooter (you did awesome!).
