Photographed by the always wonderful Kristen Marie, this wedding is the epitome of a perfect day...where the pure love and the unabashed joy took center stage. I only wish I had been there to get in on all of the fun! Click here to see even more.
Meredith and Tommy met in grade school and once they were engaged in Paris, Meredith started planning with the help of bridal blogs. She actually found me through a feature on SMP! Her dress was custom made, with many jcrew details. The venue was at a small country golf house outside of Baltimore, MD, built in the 20s, where Meredith walked downt he aisle to "Penelope's Theme" from The Brother's Bloom (edited by their friends Matt and Tim). All DIY details, the centerpiece flower boxes hand made by Meredith and her father. Flowers put together by Mother and Tommy's aunt, and included paper flowers in the arrangement as well. Thrifted vases and bottles, and vintage display pieces. Gifts were placed in wheelbarrows covered in old quilts.
As an added bonus, Monachetti captured the day on film...
