Erin Samuell of A Simple Photograph is one of our favey fave photographers. She always captures the most beautiful weddings where the love and emotion is so vivid, you can almost touch them. This particular wedding is on our awesome list because A) it was held at an uber cool loft called The Tannery, B) the bride is rocking a party in the front, business in the back dress (which we soo love) and C) the whole wedding was planned in 8 weeks!!! Say what?!? For all of you who have planned a wedding or are in the depths right now, you know that is a CRAZY short time-frame but the wedding turned out beautifully and definitely gets our SMP stamp of approval! See more of the lofty goodness in the gallery.

Shelley, the bride, also happens to be a great wedding planner and she decided to prove it when she planned her own wedding this summer! She announced her engagement EIGHT WEEKS AGO! That’s right, she managed to do this with EIGHT WEEKS NOTICE! How she managed to do it all I have no idea. The attention to detail was outstanding! She hand embroidered hankies for each and every guest! She had a beautiful custom cake made that displayed a poem that the groom wrote himself! She lavishly decorated one of Kitcheners newest hotspots, the Tannery! She framed the actual proposal (it was on a napkin) and placed it on display. The sand ceremony, the gourmet meal, the everything!! Eight weeks!! I tell you, that’s a girl who knows how to host a wedding!!
