From the second I caught wind that Mindy Weiss was deep in the throws of planning her son's wedding to his love Tali, I just knew this wedding needed to find a pretty home on SMP. And the good ol' Texas cheerleader spirit fingers came out when Mindy and Elizabeth bestowed the goods. Not only is the beauty in the details lovingly crafted by Mindy Weiss but it's the sheer joy and love found in every last ounce of Elizabeth Messina's imagery. That is a palpable combo. You might need a break just to come up for air because this is a big one. It may be the biggest wedding spread we've ever done on SMP; but it's so worth the heart palpitations and eye strain. I promise you that. Part II is coming up next but if you just can't wait a minute longer, get cozy with the gallery right here and we'll be back in a bit with so, so much more!

From the Bride... I married the most wonderful husband in the world last year. Our wedding was a magical day for us, and we were both so elated all day. I don't think I could have stopped smiling if I tried. There were a couple of things that were very important to me and Jordan when we were planning. Aside from the ceremony, we cared most about the food, the music and the general aesthetic. We knew we'd be having a big wedding, but we didn't want it to feel formal. We wanted it to be warm, cozy and just endless fun for our guests, who had traveled from all corners of the world to celebrate with us.
