Today's couple is too simply too cute! Ann Ahrens & John Teigland met early in life & havent let go of one another for a moment! When the time came to bring their wedding together, Ann, along with a small army of close friends & family rolled up their sleeves & went to task! Essentially every aspect of this wedding has been personally touched, worked on, created & so much more! From the heirloom brooch bouquet to signage, chalkboards galore, fabric bouquets, even the men's gorgeous boutonnieres! This wedding is a DIY'ers dream!
First order of business, Happy 4th of July everyone!! This is literally one of my most favorite holidays of the year if you can believe it. The Americana, the parades, the food, the drinking, the hanging out together laughing & of course, the fireworks! For the last few years we have been heading up to Stowe, Vermont for the 4th and it truly has become a staple in our lives. Beyond the town's beauty lays small town America personified. Stowe takes their Independence Day quite seriously here with everything from well done games for children to live bands playing while outstanding local food wafts through the air. The firework display here is one of the best I have ever had the privilege to see. Perhaps my absolute favoritest part (yes bad grammar but I don't care), the explosion of the fireworks actually echos off the mountain ranges. It truly is, AMAZING!

Soft dreamy whites with touches of pastels work in harmony for this modern vintage feel Jame's Island South Carolina wedding. Katie Hloderwski & Mike Vitale were not only fortunate enough to find true love in one another, they had a gracious friend who opened up their private home, playing host to this sweet southern black tie affair. Finding ways to make sure their wedding was truly theirs, our lovely couple personalized guitar pics for the wedding guest meanwhile our stunning bride Katie, hand made the lace sashes that her bridesmaids wore! Our bride was simply stunning with orchids in her hair and the perfect wide champagne colored ribbon sash completely her looking. Grab a sweet tea and stroll this gorgeous wedding!
I had been dogging Casey for sometime to submit a damn wedding to me already!! Finally, I was greeted in my inbox with a submission from Casey and oh how funny can life be... Not only did I love the super Manhattan featured wedding, but the reception took place at.... PUBLIC! Now allow me a small digression for a moment. Hubby & I did finally have our VIP experience at PUBLIC that we had won. With not the slightest bit of embellishment, it was by far one of the nights of our lives. It was....perfection. From Chef Brad, to various staff members there (PS-our waitress was amazing, she really really needs to write a food blog, like now!), to the mega delicious food, to all the wonderful things we got to experience while there, it was beyond a home run. When I saw Casey's submission of a wedding at PUBLIC all those lovely feelings came floating back. Having a close connection with PUBLIC, I thought it would be a rare great opportunity to actually hear a bit from the vendor side of things too. I reached out to the fine ladies and asked for a bit of commentary from their side as well, and they were all to happy to volley up some great stuff about Randi Anderson & Karlo Pastrovic's wedding! So now that I have written a mega intro, allow me to STFU and let you guys get to strolling through this absolutely lovely New York City wedding!!
