Our Wedding / Part 1

   Pre-ceremony & Blind First Look






















The most amazing, special day of my life happened almost a year ago on February 24th, 2013. 
I have been meaning to share the photos with you all and I am finally doing just that. 
Our wedding took place at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in their Big Red Barn. It was vintage and soft. The colors we used were mainly peach, blush, beige, and ivory. I definitely wanted the day to be about Jarrett and I and all of the love, rather than bright colors. I gravitated towards a soft, neutral color pallet that would showcase who we are, perfectly. There were so many aspects of that day that I adored. I think my favorite photos were of our blind first look. We chose to do a blind look, meaning we got to talk and hold hands and pray together before the ceremony without breaking the tradition of not seeing each other prior to the vows. I am so happy we decided to do that. It calmed my nerves and gave me butterflies. He even surprised me with a beautiful Tiffany necklace during the blind first look. I am such a lucky girl to have married such a thoughtful man.
As a fashion blogger, I thought I should mention what we wore! My dress is a White by Vera Wang strapless gown in ivory. It is made of taffeta and tulle with an A-line shape and an empire waist. It has a bow tied in the back and like 6 layers under the skirt! I am in love with my wedding gown. My favorite aspect of the dress is that the top is layers of raw edges... How perfectly undone. It fits my personality so well and made me feel absolutely beautiful.
My now husband wore a gorgeous ASOS suit in brown tweed. He wore boots and a plaid tie to give the look a more rustic feel. He was so handsome that day (and everyday)!


More details and portraits to come!
