Polka Dots Drumsticks The Carousel New Haven Connecticut Justin Mary Marantz Truck Get Away

We started off this morning talking about the details. Always the details. Julia & Mike's New England wedding from this past year is a perfect example of how to infuse a sense of playfulness into one of the most intense days of your lives!

From polka dots and drumsticks to pick-up trucks, sassy yellow shoes and sneakers ...

Gotta' love the Chevy!

Justin & Mary Marantz are two of our favorite Little Black Bookers ... We've featured a couple of their really great weddings (Katie & Colin, Josh & Beth). But to be perfectly honest, Julia & Mike's engagement shoot is probably the all-time BEST Little Black Book Blog feature ever. Mary guest-blogged for us about engagement shoots {Getting to Know You!} and Julia & Mike's was a real hoot! Take a look ... {click} A 1952 Better Homes & Garden spread. Super cute. And for more of their vintage-themed engagement shoot, here's a link to the original Marantz post.
