an iphone wedding recap: the ceremony

Friday, April 15, 2016

Hey y'all! Spring has sprung in Kentucky and I couldn't be happier! I finally had a day off today and thought I'd do another wedding recap (because I MISS blogging SO much). SO today is ceremony photos from my friends!

So the week before the wedding we had been monitoring the weather VERY closely. While planning I knew that I wanted my girls to wear nude shoes but because we knew it was going to rain I told them to bring shoes they wouldn't mind getting wet/dirty. Day of we all ended up wearing rain boots/boots/chucks which I ended up loving because it showcased our personal styles.

Showing off our boots!

The ceremony was perfect. Abe cried. I cried. Our guests cried. Afterward everyone told me that they loved our ceremony because it was so genuine. We were all so in the moment. Total perfection.

Some of the smaller details:

  • I walked down the aisle to Somewhere Over the Rainbow and we walked out to All You Need is Love.
  • We had two poems read during the ceremony. Sonnet XVII from Pablo Neruda's 100 Love Sonnets and Married Love by Kuan Tao-Sheng. Look them up, they're beautiful.
  • While Abe was saying his vows he got so choked up that his groomsman on the end took out his hankie and passed it up the line of groomsmen. It was adorable...and you can see the hankie handoff in our wedding video.


Next time I'll be back with a reception recap!

  1. I just attended a wedding here and despite my absolutely strict taste, I had an amazing experience here and I thought to myself that this place is perfect! The food at wedding venues NYC is delicious and the ambiance is elegant.
