Happiest Thursday Kids!

This wedding that i am about to share with you is so special on several different levels. For one, it was our first DIY Wedding we have ever shot. Secondly, i was obsessed with it from the Save the Dates to the invites, imagine how i was the day of the wedding. I had a massive crush on it.. 😉 Lastly, it was our last wedding of the season. Well that one is bittersweet, but we have our engagements to look forward too and 2014! The wedding was in Cape May, NJ, it was actually the first time Erik and i had ever been, so it was quite exciting. Just a note, when i tell you this was the craftiest bride ever, she literally DIY’d everything… From Bouquets to boutonniere’s to center pieces to escort tea cups. It gets better, she even made her own – waittttt for it… WEDDING DRESS! It was absolutely stunning!!!  Here’s a little history on our beautiful bride Lauren, she crotchet’s hats, scarves etc for kids and adults and sews the cutest items which of course is on her ‘Curly Hair Conspiracy etsy page’. So the wedding was just perfection when it came to showing her talent and John’s love for music. Oh enough with the rambling… the photos will just narrate the weekend. PROMISE!
