Real Wedding by Amanda Kraft, II

Here are a few more details from the oh-so-pretty Amanda Kraft wedding...

From Melissa, the bride...

The theme of the wedding was a shabby-chic garden wedding with ivory and muted greens and blues as the primary colors.  It was very important to match the existing atmosphere of Lauxmont farms, as well as show my own antique, shabby-chic taste.  The ceiling of the rotunda (ceremony site) is green...

A Real Wedding: Heather and Kevin, IV

Thank you so much to Heather and Kevin for sharing their big day with SMP! Aside from the fact that the fashion alone is enough to make a girl swoon, the attention to detail and the sweet sophistication of this family inspired affair, is just lovely.

A Real Wedding: Heather & Kevin, III

I absolutely adore the chic approachability of this wedding. It just seems so pretty and intimate, filled with perfect little details...

A bit more from Heather...

Wanting our guests to feel as involved as possible, we included a space to fill in a song request on the response cards, then complied the entire playlist based on requests and songs that were special to us. We used our Ipod instead of a DJ, which not only cut costs, but was perfect for a dinner party-style...

A Real Wedding: Heather and Kevin, II

And now on to the reception! Here are the pics first with details to follow...

From Heather...

The reception taking place on the lawn, our guests were greeted with a bucket of comfy flip-flops to change into.  Our cheery color palette of chocolate, green apple, and lemon was portrayed everywhere, from the bright yellow flower girl dresses (J.Crew) to the key lime pie dessert shots.

My sisters and I did all of the baking ourselves, and also made big jars of...

A Real Wedding: Heather and Kevin

Since the number one request that we have here on SMP is for Real Weddings, I thought that we could really treat ourselves to a solid week of the prettiest, most stylish weddings that I could find.

I am going to let the bride, Heather, give you a bit of detail...

A Real Wedding, Kelly and Colin, III

Kelly and Colin's ceremony was held at Kelly's parent's home in Ohio, at 7 PM with a small reception to follow (light appetizers and desserts only). The family is Greek, thus they had all of their Green Aunts make Greek Cookies, along with macaroons from Sucre, pellegrino and lemonade. It was intimate, it was personal and most of all...it was beautiful!
