L & J Wedding

Flash back Friday post!

I feel like I say it all the time, but I loved this wedding.  I loved the bride, the groom, and the families.  I felt so blessed to be able to be part of this wedding.

Have you ever been to a wedding where you think back ..."that was such a lovely and sweet wedding" and then you let out a literal peaceful sigh, because it was that lovely?

Well, this wedding really was that type of wedding.

The wedding was a wonderful mix of simple yet elegant.  The bride and groom were sweet and loving.  The couple  emanated a deep devotion and joy towards one another.  The details of the wedding were simple, yet clean and delicate.

The wedding had an exuberance of happiness intertwined with child like silliness.  The ceremony took place at a church that was intimate and simple.  The natural lighting inside the church filled every crevice of space, making the place feel warm and inviting. The grounds outside of the ceremony, was lush green grass and tall leaf filled trees.

The reception was a beautiful wood lodge with large outdoor space.  One of my favorite parts of the wedding was how the outdoor space was utilized to have lawn games and family activites.  How wonderful is that!?!  I loved how the bride and groom wanted the wedding to be family / kid friendly.  There were tons of games, activities and snacks for kids and families to enjoy.

I think lots of times with weddings (and understandably so), tend to be an event that requests parents to enjoy an evening away from the kids.  

But this wedding was the opposite, this wedding was a more kids the merrier affair.  Having kids in attendance gave a wonderful energy to the whole event.  You saw kids playing with bubbles, running around and just being kids.  The kids brought a delight and laughter that filled the wedding day.  It was also a great reminder of the future to come.
