Real Wedding: Stephanie and Nathan, III
June 8, 2009

I heart today's real wedding. And in a big way. It's casual, while still seemingly formal. It's budget, while capturing a completely expensive style. It's all about the romance, the beauty of the day and the absolutely fabulous couple.

If you are just now joining us, Jennifer over at Alders Photography sent us this affair, and I am in love! It took place this past May at Sailboat Cove in Paradise, Missouri...

From Jennifer at Alders Photography...

This was a really personal and intimate wedding.  It is also a "low budget" wedding...the bride found the chandeliers, lanterns, and table decorations at flea markets and consignment stores and dressed them all up with home-made crystals. They also had a fun DIY photo booth with props borrowed from their four nieces.  It just goes to show that you can make personal decisions without breaking the bank. So while this isn't an example of an extravagant and expensive wedding, I think it's the perfect example of a detailed, personal, and unique wedding.
