Who needs Pinterest and a Honeymoon Surprise!!

Can you say....GORGEOUS'????? AND....this bracelet was made from her grandmother's pearls.

We found the perfect flower for her hair at...wait for it...Claire's in the mall. Yup. True Story.

Beautiful bouquet of baby's breath, pink roses, frosted leaves, antique lace, and a crystal broach.  Our Aunt Tami of Tami's Floral Expressions in Wellsville, NY did all of the flowers. She is amazing.

Baby's breath bridesmaids bouquets.

Personalized hanger. GREAT gift!!


Pictures I took of the bride and groom as they got ready for the ceremony across town from one another.

What is cuter than this??? Umm...nothing.

The groomsmen pre-gaming.

Look at these cutie pies!!! Lots of nieces in the family and they were all a part of the big day!

The New York Bridesmaids.

The North Carolina bridesmaids with the Bride.

Guests were greeted at the reception by this adorable burlap sign hanging from the ceiling.

An ombre cake. It goes from blush on the bottom to cream on the top. Gorgie!!

My favorite part of the reception. Each little window had a picture of the bride and groom throughout the years. From their junior and senior proms, to high school graduations, to last year in NC, and finally, their wedding save the date. It was hilarious, and SO touching to look at them over their 10 and 1/2 year journey. Yes, I just said that. 10 1/2 years. Now that's love.

Antique candelabras, baby's breath, and fleur de lis!

Burlap and crystals. Classic, vintage style.

Burlap, crystals, mirrors, and candles...so pretty.

The bride and groom outside of the church after the ceremony. My Aunt Tami did all of the flowers and made the wreaths for outside of the church...and since the happy couple is away on a honeymoon, I am now the proud owner of this wreath. Looks great on my front door. Thanks guys!
As promised, Part 2 of my little brother's wedding. I did my own hair and make-up for the wedding, which allowed me a few free hours before the ceremony. I took a some pictures of the groom getting ready, then ran across town and tried to capture some of the bride doing the same. Here are some of my favorite shots of all of the details that made Josh and Brie's day so amazing. With all of these great ideas and stylish elements...who needs Pinterest? Annnnnnd...since I'm sure they don't want the celebration to end, I decided to surprise them with some quintessential Honeymoon decor for their suite! They didn't know it, but I called the resort they are staying at yesterday. The front desk stalked them for me, and when they returned to their room last night from dinner and drinks they found it filled with rose petals, chocolate covered strawberries, and champagne! Time to pop bottles and get all ROMANTICAL!! I love thinking about their faces when they walked into that suite. What may or may not have happen next though???? I'd prefer NOT to think about that at all! HA!!!!
