- Wedding: September 2011
I never thought I would share so many pictures of our wedding online, but now that I see all the shots, I simply must. If anyone in the Philadelphia area is looking for a photographer, I cannot recommend ours highly enough. All photo credit here goes to Georgi Anastasov and his work truly deserves this kind of sharing.
These photos document our 6 PM wedding ceremony and some of our reception. Photos from before this point are linked above. Not pictured is the food or cocktail hour, which you can see in the first link above with the detail pictures. Most of the elements of this wedding were DIY, from the groomsmen vests and dog outfit to the flowers and all the paper goods. I hope you like what you see!
Above: Our violinist played awesome music, like The Beatles and Jeff Buckley. For me to walk down the aisle, I selected a melodic rendition of The Final Countdown.
Above: Our dog, Meatball, was escorted down the aisle by my (now) sister-in-law.
Above: Our rings were in a nest and passed around to everyone in attendance, starting with the Mother of the Bride and ending with the Mother of the Groom, aka, a ring warming ceremony. This was our unity element.
Above: This little table held our program fans and ribbon wands. The table was the first wedding-related purchase we made. We also used this table in our engagement photos. It now sits in our living room!
My husbands vows were a little funnier than mine. Also very touching. He actually wrote the entire ceremony. 🙂
Above: I love this picture of my sister and husband hugging!
Above and Below: Our photographer really has “emotional radar” or something. He always managed to catch people in the moment! The groom’s brother really broke down after the ceremony was over. It was very sweet.
Above: We held the reception inside this log cabin. The cocktail hour was outside on the wrap around deck.
Above: Making good use of the puddle, since we had so much rain the day before!
Above: My first ugly-cry-face picture! I suppose it had to happen. 😉
Above: I am from Canada and so was my side of the bridal party along with my family and some friends. We tried to incorporate some Canadian elements into our Philadelphia-area wedding. For instance, our favors were little bottles of Nova Scotia maple syrup, purchased in my hometown!
Above: A guest enjoys one of our three signature beers, brewed by a homebrewing friend. We had Hoppily Ever After, Something Old New Borrowed and Blueberry Ale, and ‘Til Death Do Us Porter. I got to come up with the names, which was the fun part for me. Otherwise, I stick to wine. 🙂
Thanks for looking! I hope you liked the pictures. 🙂
