When a wedding has this much heart, you can almost feel it.  Like the pure joy and love that went into crafting this Big Day is almost too much for the internet to handle (it is).  I guess that has a little something to do with the darling bride and groom, who went about creating a day that will not only stand the test of time, but knock your socks off with its pretty.  Think lush, pink blooms from Violet and Verde meets a gorgeous backyard setting. See every beautiful moment captured by Minnow Park in the full gallery.

From the Bride... My husband John and I were married on June 22, 2013 after 8 1/2 years together. We had just over 100 people, and carried on my parent's tradition of marrying on my grandfather's beautiful property in Woodbury, Long Island, NY.

We were so lucky to have had so many amazing family heirlooms to use that tied in perfectly with our vintage theme. We utilized my great-grandmother's 1920's sewing machine as a cake table (also a nod to my fashion design career), milk glass from our families (including some from my parent's wedding on the same property) for our centerpieces, and lace from my mother's dress adorned my self-made veil and wrapped all the bouquets.

Aside from all of the family antiques we injected into our big day, our wedding was largely DIY and definitely budget! I handmade my veil, sash, hair pieces for my MOH, and some signage. Our whole entire family pitched in to landscape the property, which was severely damaged by hurricane Sandy.

Basically, we put our hearts into this, everyone had a great time. and we are so proud of the finished product!
