Pure genius. If you were curious what pure wedded genius looks like, you are about to find out. It’s one part fab florals from J Morgan Flowers, one part a-freaking-mazing photography from Michelle March Photography, and one part vintage Hemmingway chic, complete with a bride and groom with impeccable style. Throw a puppy into the mix, and you’ve got a whole gallery of pure wedded genius.

After a year of thinking about practically every setting; loft in Manahttan, beach club in the Bahamas, boutique hotel in Europe, the Patent office in DC, a picnic in Central Park, and the list goes on; Clayton rediscovered an old favorite, The Sundy House in Delray Beach, FL.  It was a perfect mix of everything we wanted: intimate, vintage 1920/1930s, unique, on-site cottages and close to where I grew up and where my parents still live.

We decided from the start that we wanted a small wedding, one where we could spend time talking to everyone and still have time for each other.  The Sundy House was amazing at coordinating all our vendors and keeping us on schedule, which was great, since we only ended up with 5 months of planning (too much time spent daydreaming).  We chose our vendors carefully and were thrilled with how our vision and their styles mixed perfectly to create our not overly thematic, Old Florida, Hemmingway-esque, evening, garden party wedding.  

The day of was surprisingly effortless!  Once we woke up on Sunday, everything was taken care of and Clayton, our family, wedding party and I just enjoyed eachother’s company in our respective cottages and waited for I Do’s.  Our ceremony was personal and touching, our vows were handwritten, the first dance (“If You Were the Only Girl in the World” – a chart topper in 1916) was beautiful and dinner was delicious.  I only wish it lasted longer!
