How cute are these garden party details from Ali and Garrett Wedding Photographers? Love that they wanted something timeless for their daughters first birthday and settled on this sweet, classic theme. "We were looking for a baby friendly theme for our daughters first birthday party. We were looking at Dr. Seuss, Up, and a storybook theme, but then decided we didn't want her miss out on a theme like those when she got older, so we decided to go with a secret garden theme. Lots of pink, moss, and garden themed desserts." Great idea!
Happy Wedding Wednesday! We are so happy to share this simple and sweet fall wedding from Deborah Zoe Photography. Love the color palette and sophisticated style of this couple married in Massachussetts.
From the bride, Samantha: "Michael and I grew up in the same home town. He started going to my middle school in 8th grade and we became very close friends. In high school we grew even closer - just as friends. After we graduated we went off to different colleges and just lost touch. In 2008 Michael was interviewing in Chicago at the same exact time I was visiting my Aunt and Uncle in Chicago. A mutual friend suggested we all get together and once I saw Mike for the 'first time' as an adult it just hit me and we fell head over heels for each other. We still have moments where we take a step back and still can't believe we are together!
Michael proposed in the most beautiful park in Paris at a quiet hour in the morning. It was just the two of us and I wouldn't have wanted it to happen any differently. I always figure out surprises before they happen but I had absolutely no idea, not even an inkling that this was going to happen. Before I could even take a bite of food Michael held my hands and just started talking with me. He got pretty emotional and I didn't understand what was going on until he said that he wanted me to remember this moment forever. Then he said he wanted to get married and we both cried. It was absolutely beautiful. "
From Deborah Zoe Photography: "Lovers of history and antiques Michael and Samantha chose to marry at the Milton Hoosic Club in Milton, Massachusetts. Though the two reside in Chicago they wanted to say their vows in their home state surrounded by their friends and family who still live in the area.
Samantha did much of the details herself including the invitations and decor and splurged on larger details like her dress and heels! Her mom even created the evening's favors, home made chocolate truffles!"
