What are the necessary elements of a truly unforgettable wedding? In my book, they are: a loving couple, a pretty setting, unique and thoughtful details, joyful friends and family, and a good ol’ dose of fun. Tom and Julia’s North Carolina wedding had all of this and more. I was so struck by how exquisite everything was, that I’m pretty sure I spent most of the day looking like a giddy deer in headlights. You couldn’t throw a bale of hay without hitting something awesome. Yes, there were bales of hay. They were used as seating for the ceremony. Are you getting an idea of why I’m so excited?
I’m going to try to keep my comments to a minimum, because I’d rather let the images tell the story. I’ve posted lots of pics here, and the slideshow at the end of the post has a whole bunch more. I do have to give a huge shout-out to my hubby Matt, who did such an excellent job as my second shooter. He’s almost a little too good, really. I think he might be reading my mind at times. Get outta there!
Tom and Julia, could I possibly adore you any more? No, I could not. I’m so very happy for you, and I’m fortunate to know two people who are as kind, smart, hilarious, and generous as you.
Here are all the yummy details
Wedding Planner – Elizabeth Hempfling – Thanks so much, Elizabeth. You did such a wonderful job!
Dress Designer – Rodica Lazarian – There’s a photo in the slideshow of Julia standing in line with several other ladies in her family. ALL of those ladies wore the dress Julia has on (9 total now)! Rodica did an incredible job altering it and making it extra-special.
Flower Design – Carolyn Clement of Millefleurs – Really beautiful!
Catering – Eileen Gaddi of Gadabouts Catering – So delicious!
Cake Catering – Stickboy Bread Co. – Cupcakes AND a shark!
