Today Charlie and I celebrate 2 years of marriage. I cannot believe it has gone by this fast… but at the same time it feels like we have been together forever! (we dated for 4 years before we were married)
Our wedding was one of the biggest and most important design projects of my life. It’s amazing how much event design and interior design go hand in hand. You have to use space planning, color coordination, think about texture and lighting… fabrics, “accessories”… the list goes on and on. I loved every second of planning our wedding. I knew I wanted it to be a night we would never forget… something we would talk about for years. And I had 15 months to plan it.
In honor of the anniversary of the best day of my life, I thought I would share with you some images from this special day.
The beautiful flowers and our unity candle on the altar of the church
The Aisle candles and flowers
Wreaths on the church doors
Handmade programs for the ceremony.
Walking out of the church after the ceremony, such a happy time!
We made our guest book out of our engagement pictures. It was nice to be able to have something we could keep on our cocktail table so we could go back and look at all the nice messages everyone wrote to us.
One of my favorite details. We placed the place cards for our guests on beds of carnations. We had 2 large tables right when you walked in…. I loved the statement it made!
I love being able to share family pictures at a wedding. And I was also able to share my bridal portrait, done by the fabulous Gregory Rademacher.
I loved our wedding cake. Dorothy Ann’s Bakery in Woodbury made it for us and I think they did a great job!
My Dad loves to make his own wine and has been doing it for many years. He was kind enough to make all of the wine for the dinner. The labels were custom designed by graphic designer Zac Wand of Graphic Executions. (so lucky to have him as my brother-in-law!)
I was absolutely in love with our head table. Lit with candlelight and large candelabras, it really set the romantic tone I wanted for the ballroom.
Something most people do for the head table, the bridesmaid bouquets used as centerpieces.
I loved The Depot because of this ballroom. It’s so architecturally beautiful but still has a hotel connected so we didn’t have to worry about people driving!
And finally, our monogram shining on our dance floor!
It truly was the best day of my life. every detail turned out just the way we wanted it, but more importantly we were able to celebrate our love with the most important people in our lives.
Saying our vows to each other
I love this picture, isn’t my hubby handsome?
Happy anniversary to the best husband ever! Here’s to 2 years, and so many more to come!
