There’s just something about a charming outdoor soiree that gets me every.single.time and this fabulous Postcard Inn affair has my heart jumping right out of my chest.  A marriage of sweet vintage details, uber-romantic moments and a courtyard filled to the brim with sparkly lights and chandeliers, it’s whimsical perfection meets an al fresco paradise.  Thank goodness Lauren Piper Photography was on hand to capture all of the pretty, because I seriously can’t wait to spend my day in the gallery.  Join me there for more.

From Lauren Piper PhotographyFinley and Jonathan chose to get married at the truly unique and beautiful Postcard Inn. They went with a whimsical, old-world theme with such things as an old typewriter, a cigar roller, an accordion player and wish lanterns. The ceremony was gorgeous, and so was the bride — her veil seemed to go on for days. The bridesmaids held bouquets of wildflowers and wore dresses in different, coordinating colors. Even with the 150 person guest list, the reception felt very intimate because the only lighting came from lanterns and lights strung throughout the trees in the courtyard. The night was filled with love, laughter and plenty of dancing. At the very end of the night, the wish lanterns were lit on the beach and released by all who attended this very special day. Upon their release, everyone was asked to say a wish for the bride and groom. It was such a wonderful experience photographing this beautiful wedding. Thank you, Fin and Jon, for allowing me to be a part of your special day!!
