If you follow me on facebook or twitter you know I posted about learning a life lesson at this wedding. Annie, the bride, had emergency surgery 2 days prior to her wedding. I had gotten the call that the wedding may not take place as the bride could hardly stand. The wedding did not go exactly as planned, but Annie decided to go through with it and she did not let one thing bother her. Even though she was not at 100%, she smiled and took the day in stride.
This spunky sweet girl decided to infuse her wedding with DIY and unique ideas. From the vibrant blue ruffled stilettos, to the hot pink bridesmaid shoes and bouquets, there were so many fun details to capture. Even her wedding ring, necklace, reception flip flops, aisle decorations, and peacock feather bottle center pieces were all do-it-yourself. Her Marine husband, Devlin was very dashing in his official ensemble.
Boys being boys
Meet Annie and her something blue.
Devlin holding the custom made wedding rings. Swoon worthy!
Annie had a supportive bridesmaid entourage to help her with everything and make her laugh
Hot Pink stilettos. Enough said.
There were giant vintage family photos displayed on the Lahr Atrium windows. A beautiful touch I thought.
Needless to say the shoes didn’t stay on long so of course I took more photos of them. I love wedding detail photos!
The crowd tossed birdseed as the couple excited… cute idea except there was a pound of seed on Annie’s gorgeous custom gown we had to shake out. Still it didn’t bother Annie a bit.
This is where Devlin proposed (right by the fountain) so it was natural to take some wedding photos here.
Photo perfection. With a tiny bit of planning with the photographer the couple can get these dreamy sunset lit photos. Stunning!!!
First Dance. The Lahr Atrium was a great back drop for Annie’s wedding cocktail reception theme.
Cake with gorgeous back lighting. The topper was unique as it was brought back from Spain by her bridesmaid.
Tossing bouquets and garters.

I’ll end this post with this sunset kiss.
