This is the beautiful wedding of Scott and Lauren, my dear friend for over 20 years! We have been bffs since 5th grade when we bonded over our mutual love of King Arthur stories and musical theater. :) Like my brother's recent wedding, I wasn't the hired photographer but snuck in photo-taking in between my duties as bridesmaid. (That's why there are no photos of the ceremony or the dance party - I can't have a camera hold me back on the dance floor!).
The day was full of artful details and DIY elements. Scott is a talented artist and illustrator and created all the chalk drawings on the table settings. Lauren's mother altered Lauren's vintage dress, made the bouquets and all the terrariums on the tables as well. In addition, my dear husband played guitar during the ceremony, my brother-in-law officiated the ceremony and another friend of ours sang a beautiful Mexican ballad during the first dance. The setting for the day was University of Virginia's campus gardens and Colonade Club - you couldn't have asked for a more perfect summer day to celebrate love and all the beauty of life. The evening ended the way every wedding should - eating pizza on the hotel hallway floor amid fits of giggles. xoxoxo
