I’ll bet you all thought I’d been buried under that snow I wrote about last, eh? So sorry for the long pause between posts…it’s been seriously hectic getting all of this year’s last minute Christmas orders together!!! But here we are, at last, ready to begin the blog-a-thon of scrumptiousness that is Louie and Mary Elisa’s Manchester wedding!! I want to thank the fabulous Emy Fleck for her mad second-shooting skills…you’re awesome, Emy!! I’ve kept you all waiting long enough, so I’m going to dive right in!!
I absolutely LOVED Mary Elisa’s J.Crew dress…simple but sophisticated and easy to add fun accessories to! Oh, and if I could go back in time, I would definitely wear a dress with pockets!!! So fantastic!! And her bolero is yet one more reason to shop etsy! Love!
What do you get when you mix 1 part super-hot-and-sexy with 1 part punk rock? 2 awesome pairs of shoes, that’s what!!!
Mary Elisa’s nephew joined in on some of the fun…SO dang cute!!
You may recall Louie and Mary Elisa’s super cool hand-letterpressed invitations. Well Mary Elisa, in all of her artistic glory, designed matching EVERYTHING to keep that theme running throughout the day…seriously, everything from the amazing programs featuring a few shots from their engagement session to the signs for coatcheck and the restrooms! Keep an eye out for more when we get to the reception!
Can’t. stop. shooting. babies. (ummmm…that didn’t sound quite right…I mean photographing babies, photographing, not shooting!…oops!)
Mary Elisa had her talented friend and artist, Yung Bagley, design and make her amazing wedding day jewelry. I love that she had different jewelry for the ceremony and reception…such a great way to shift from the somewhat more serious nature of the ceremony to the big ol’ party that is the reception!
I love the clasp on this, and the tiny little guns…so fun!!
Last one, I promise…he’s just too cute!
While I was hanging out in hair and make-up with Mary Elisa, Emy went to hang out with the guys for a bit…
When your hotel room overlooks a baseball field, I think that there is only one appropriate thing to do…Big League Chew!!
Meanwhile…I loved that Mary Elisa kept referring to the fact that she wanted her hair to be “like a big rat’s nest”! It looked awesome, of course, and the girls from 26th on Hanover rocked it out!
And then it was dress time!! Mary Elisa’s mom was such a good sport…she was totally halfway through getting her hair done when it was time for Mary Elisa to get dressed, but she joined the party anyway!!
One last touch-up and it’s off the the First Look!!
Louie and Mary Elisa’s First Look and amazing portraits are coming at you next!!
