- Wedding: March 2012
We got our pro pics back a few weeks ago and I am so excited! Our wedding was chock full of DIY details that we didn’t want to forget, and our photographer – Rebecca of Red Fern Photography – did a fantastic job of capturing them.
Here is a link to her blog post about us, which hits the highlights. It’s a better recap than I could write here:
And here are some of our favorite photos that she didn’t include (all photos by Red Fern Photography):
Our self-designed, self-printed invitation with rings around the birds we placed in the trees.
The backdrop – with real birch poles, ribbon curtains, and paper flower pomanders – that took us about FOREVER to complete.
Our officiant had just finished saying how no two people are “perfect” for each other – and then I began my vows by reminding Jason (ScottSouth) that when he proposed he told me I was “perfect” for him!
We were nervous about how the mismatched dresses and suits would look, but it came off wonderfully!
I love this shot of us crossing the street on the way to our reception. This was the most anyone saw of my shoes all night.
Each of our centerpieces featured a different animal from NC – this one was a beaver. When making these, it was tough trying to track down all the animal figurines we needed!
One of our youngest guests – Amelie – crossed paths with my grandmother, who was just delighted by her.
At the last minute, my dad decided to jump in with the rest of the girls and try for the bouquet. On the left, my little sister is cracking up. On the far right, my brother really doesn’t know what to think.
Me with my new husband and my new brothers. Also, may I HIGHLY recommend getting married in a nature museum?
Until we got this photo back, neither of us realized that the beautifully lit NC Capitol was in the background as we made our exit. So awesome!
I love how our day turned out. LOVE. It felt fresh and fun, and it didn’t feel like anyone else’s. We had tons of people tell us it was the best wedding they’d ever been to, and I believed them. I know that a wedding isn’t the same as a marriage, but at the end of the day, ScottSouth and I both felt that the wedding celebration we planned together was the perfect way to kick off the rest of our lives.
