The day started at the home of the bride and groom. When I arrived, they were sipping mimosas and grinning like fools. One of my favorite parts about this wedding, is the fact that they helped each other get dressed. There is something extremely intimate about a couple getting ready together, and it set the mood for the entire day. In Bridget’s wedding details, included a necklace with the saying “Resist”. It has personal meaning to the bride, to also resist conforming into the confines of what is seen as “normal”, and stay true to herself. Their rings were created custom, by melting the gold of a family heirloom.
Bridget and Alexander tied the knot on the family property. The 1920’s manor served as a backdrop for their nuptials, as they married in the garden mid morning. Guests arrived in elegance, being shuttled to the garden in a collection of vintage cars.
After the ceremony, guests were ushered to the Manor’s garage. Inside featured some authentic vintage cars and paraphernalia. It was truly something unique, and tied into the property’s theme! Gold animals served as table numbers, and each guest has a hand-painted golden doily place card. The bride’s parents are bakers, and created a cake specially for the occasion. There was a mimosa bar, a variety of different pastries to eat. In leu of traditional reception dances, guests were free to roam to property and mingle with the bride and groom.
