Hello from the newlyweds! Rob and I have been married for 1 month and 1 day and we are still in awe of our magical vintage wedding day. Thank you to everyone that has extended their heartfelt congratulations and prayers for our marriage. We count our blessings every single day and are so touched that people we have never met face to face care so much about our new life together and have showered us with their support.
We wanted to capture the love that surrounds our lives every day in a unique way and incorporate it into to our wedding. Our good friend Brian from BTW Photography worked through our portfolio at lightning speed and we are so excited to finally share some of our favorite moments of the wedding with you today. If you follow us on Instagram, you probably already know that Rob and I had a traditional Catholic wedding with an outdoor vintage-theme reception that was held in my parents back yard. The local weather forecast called for torrential rain, storms and hail that day; but we prayed a rosary, laid it in bush, and left it in God’s hands.
As it turned out, the weather could not have been more perfect. The overcast skies created the most stunning dramatic effect in our photos and we enjoyed the unseasonably cool June air that kept our guests dancing well into the night. As much as I enjoy writing for you, I am going to sit back and let you enjoy the following photos. They provide an excellent narrative of our day without any additional elaboration from me.
Announcing: Wedding Wednesday
As you can see, the day was truly spectacular and so much more elegant than Rob and I were anticipating. I plan to share more specific details from our vintage wedding in the coming weeks. All summer long, Rob and I will be featuring a different element of the wedding on the blog in a new blog segment we are calling “Wedding Wednesday.” We plan to highlight our favorite vendors from the metro-Detroit area, share some of our favorite DIY projects from the wedding, and share some giveaways and exclusive discounts with you! Be sure to check back this Wednesday for our first feature. If you have any questions about our wedding, please ask them in the comments of this post. See you again on Wednesday!
