I had the hardest time putting this wedding together for you today. Why? Because it’s TOO beautiful. The soft pretty colors paired with pops of gorgeous. The photographs by KT Merry that are subtle and yet heartbreakingly sweet and lovely. So beautiful that I secretly want to order a few for myself despite the fact that I’ve never met the bride or groom. And the details. Oh the details. Just so pretty, so organically beautiful. I simply couldn’t figure out a way to do this stunning wedding justice. So please, please, pretty please, make sure you check out the full gallery so that you can really see the celebration in its entirety. It’s SO worth it.
From the Bride… Justin and I met while attending Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. I remember thinking he had really cute shoes and lovely brown eyes. :) We became fast friends, and over the course of a year and half, we became best friends. In 2005, we both finally had the guts to admit to each other that we were both incredibly in love. I remember the exact moment we decided to be together — it felt like I had just made the most important decision of my life, and I was completely and totally, happy. We supported each other through three HUGE moves back and forth across the country. Supporting each others’ hopes and dreams, failures and accomplishments. Then, finally deciding after six years together to make things official, Justin proposed to me on a beach in Seattle on Feb. 25, 2011, with our German Shepherd, Charlie, and my mother and sister looking on. It was perfect. Justin is my absolute best friend, confidant and soul mate. He makes me laugh every day and brings absolute joy and happiness to my life. I’m so incandescently happy to now be his wife.
