intro

I was thrilled that Amy was getting ready at the Hotel St. Cecilia. I had been dying to check out this unique, little hotel, and it definitely did not disappoint.

Since Amy and Greg wanted to see each other before the ceremony, we had plenty of time for some fun bride+groom portraits.

Amy’s dress was custom-made by a designer in LA, Magda Berliner. It was so gorgeous and unique. Amy, you’re a knockout!!

On to Mercury Hall for the ceremony. Check out all of the colorful details. They had haybales brought in for guest seating at the ceremony and draped handmade quilts over them, made by Amy’s great-grandmother and aunts. Such a wonderful idea.

Now this was one of my favorite things I’ve ever seen at a ceremony. They had everyone sing along to “All You Need is Love.” It was such a sweet moment that got everyone involved. Loved it!!

The coolest wedding officiant I’ve seen. Sweet threads! And this signature cocktail was created by Amy and Greg-a grapefruit, basil margarita. Yumm…..

Allright brides, you’re gonna want to steal this idea! In lieu of a guest book, Amy and Greg set up a photo booth with a chalkboard. The guests would write their well-wishes on the chalkboard and then we’d snap their picture. Then you could make a little album of all of your guests and their sweet/funny/kind words for you. How awesome is that?!?

On each place setting was a vintage handkerchief with a handmade name tag. Amy sewed these “Mr.” and “Mrs.” herself. Fabulous.

All of these flowers were done by Amy’s friend Allison-they were gorgeous!

Here’s another first for us and one of the coolest things I’ve seen at a reception. Amy + Greg’s talented friends put together a shadow puppet show telling the story of how they met. It was just perfect and so entertaining for everyone.

And then Greg surprised Amy by serenading her with a Townes Van Zandt song, “If I Needed You.” That sealed the deal. You guys are our favorite couple ever:)

Where do I start with how much we loved this wedding?? I guess I’ll start with Amy + Greg, one of the coolest couples we’ve had the chance to work with. Not only do they have fabulous taste in music, and a great eye for details, but they gave us an entire hour for some fun bride+groom portraits. And we got to shoot at one of our favorite venues, Mercury Hall. They really brought it to life with their colorful, personalized details. We enjoyed this wedding from start to finish and feel so very lucky to have been a part of it. Thanks so much, Amy and Greg! Congratulations to you both!
