When two architects with an eye for design tie the knot, you know you are about to see a wedding that wows. And not only did they craft a lovely fête, they also learned how to jam for their adorable favors and even brewed their own beer for their guests. Talk about impressive. It's personal, heartfelt and all them - and thanks to Olivia Gird Photography, every moment is waiting for you here.

From Olivia Gird Photography...Amy and Brendan, a pair of architects, both have a strong eye for design. While planning the wedding, the two teamed up, bouncing ideas off of each other and ultimately, incorporating a bit of each of their personalities into their day! It all began with an overly involved plan to make their own Save the Dates. What began as a small idea soon turned into a labor of love (or frustration!). Along the way, the two went strawberry and blueberry picking, a nod to an activity that began their engagement weekend the year prior. They then taught themselves to make homemade jam with the fruit that they picked to use as names/table numbers. Lesson learned: research first! Neither had any idea that jam has to be made in small batches. Two weeks and 70 jars of jam later, the favors were complete! Amy and Brendan also teamed up in a friendly rival beer brewing competition to brew the best beer for their guests. The beers were handed out as favors. "His" was "Paddler's Poarter", recognizing the pair's love for kayaking. "Hers" was "Hoppily Ever After." And so they shall be.
