There is a lot to love about today's featured affair. It's sweet simplicity. It's utter charm. It's approachable, effortless style. But most of all, I am totally smitten with the laid back elegance of the day. The umbrellas plopped inside a rain bucket, friends and family helping with the flowers, the picnic table and chair set up for guests. It's all just so lovely!

Oh and I am completely and madly in love with the flowers...the perfect pink flowers tucked inside milk glass bowls, set against a simple burlap (or otherwise neutral) table runner. Total gorgeousness. Jessamyn Harris is the talent behind the photos that completely tell the story of the day. I love that.

Here is a cute little detail from Jessamyn...

The cute's the best man, Ben. Ben cleaned up quite a bit for this wedding - hard to describe how much if you don't know him personally - and rented a tux with pink details just to show Scott how much he cares. I think Scott was worried Ben would show up shaggy and dirty and punk rock , so Ben took the challenge to the extreme. I told him he looked like a mean jock from a 1980s movie - remember when preppy men could wear pink and still beat you up? - but I should've also said, he looked very nice.

The weather was cold and rainy.  Meredith and Scott came close to panicking in the week leading up to the wedding, then decided that, instead of moving it to a boring and impersonal location, they would cover some of the arbors, ask everyone to bring umbrellas and rain boots, and hope for the best.  And it worked!  The wedding proceeded beautifully and the occasional drizzle just added to the overall romance of the wonderful day!
