I’ll be honest, there’s not much that I don’t absolutely adore when it comes to weddings, but this stunner from Diane + Mike Photography has really blown me away. Show me a dreamy lace gown from Pronovias and I’m sold, but throw in The Ranche’s breathtaking Queen Anne style architecture and the beautifully bound books decorating the reception from the Bride and Groom’s personal collection? It’s like someone reading my mind. And you can see every detail in the gallery right here.
From Diane + Mike Photography… Emma and Kammryn had a particularly lovely wedding because they infused their own personalities into their details. It was held at The Ranche on October 7, 2012. The books used as centerpieces are their own, which they arranged and had Kam’s aunts place on the table. They even put specific books at each table based on who was sitting there (Dr. Seuss at the kids’ table, etc.) They had a flower arranging party with family and friends to arrange their wholesale flowers. They designed the labels for the guest favours (jars of salt water taffy) and the “wish jar” at the sign-in table.
