What happens when these two fall madly in love and get married? This delightful "hipster-pinterest" wedding, that's what!
It was a grand event, meticulously planned, in which SO many people gifted the bride and groom with their time and talent. Everything came together seamlessly. There were a shocking number of flowers. There were punch bowls of craft cocktails. Chalkboard signs handwritten by the groom himself. A peanut butter and jelly bar. Walls of polaroids. So. Many. Pies. There were more hand crafted details than can be put in a blog post. It rained - a lot - which was actually perfect. The vows were touching. And the dance floor was packed until the very, very end of the night. I'm pretty sure it was the Best Wedding Ever.
When we first sat down to talk about their wedding photos, these cute nerds had a conflict. According to Angie, all photos need to be portrait orientation so that they will look amazing on Pinterest. According to Reed, the photos should be landscape because they work better that way on websites. Which is the most adorable argument I've ever heard of. (I hope I gave you enough of each!)
Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day. It was truly amazing.
