Friends, I have a backlog of weddings I haven’t shared with you. This one in particular has been sitting in the blog drafts folder since last fall, waiting for me to find the right words so I could share it with you. But I finally decided that the perfect words don’t matter. What matters is just showing up with what I have. And while I can’t promise to share all those backlogged weddings immediately, I’m going to try – really try – to keep showing up here, imperfect as it may be, and share the highlights when I can.
This was the first wedding that I shot at Misselwood and the venue became an instant favorite. Just scroll on down and I’m sure you’ll be able to see why… Because holy heck! This venue provides the glamour of a New England manor house, the natural beauty of a coastal ceremony, and the timeless elegance of a white tent, dripping with string lights and chandeliers. Any why would you ever choose just one when you can have them all?
But more importantly, this couple. I talk a lot about how every wedding has a different energy – a reflection of the couple’s personality. Well these two look glamorous (and they are), but their energy was pure hilarity. I was cracking up through the whole ceremony, as the groom’s brother shared crazy stories and cracked silly jokes and when the bride rapped her vows. I was cracking up as they awkwardly fed each other cake and as they tore it up on the dance floor. I loved the quirky touches, like temporary tattoos with the bride and groom’s face on it.
As elegant and beautiful as this venue is, as the details were, as the whole day appeared, the richness of this day was in the way these two couldn’t help but let their fabulously fun personalities pour through every moment.
