November Wedding: Lydia & Drew


In the days leading up to my first wedding anniversary I’m excited to share some of the beautiful pictures of our special day. We didn’t hire a photographer but asked an army of talented friends and family to take pics. We are forever grateful to Jen, Patrick, Beth, Aaron, George and Buck for these memories.

    Happy Anniversary Lyd and Drew.
    I loved how all of our family got to be part of the planning for your special day. Lyd you pulled it off with great style and grace. I am so in awe of the beautiful bride you were, and so proud of the wise and kind woman you are a year later. Your love for each other is a joy to my heart.

    Oh my! The love story idea is a GREAT idea! I make alternative bouquets for brides that don’t want to “waste” flowers, but your idea is even more personal. Love, love, love it!
