Our fabulous photographers, The Wiebners, captured so many amazing moments on our wedding day, and they have now gone above and beyond, posting over 50 teaser photos from our day on their blog. It will be a bit longer until I have all of the proofs to share with you all, but until then, here are some snippets that I can’t resist sharing. (Click on any photo to enlarge.)
Getting my makeup done by the fabulous Emily of Cheekadee! She made me feel like a princess. Natalie Pagano did everyone’s hair beautifully, and both she and Emily came right to my room (The Presidential Suite, woohoo!) at The Desmond. Being able to hang out there all morning was really relaxing and I never felt rushed.
Checking myself out! (You can sort of see here my “Team Bride” tank top…. SIL Cupcake let me borrow hers, which she sported getting ready for her own wedding to my brother last summer.)
Our Day Of Coordinator, Jenn Poletti of Perfect Planners, helping to secure my veil. It was really surreal seeing myself as a bride. I thought the day would never come!
We saw each other for the first time at Valley Creek Park, up the road from The Desmond. The Wiebners took some great portraits in front of the old farm house after we first saw each other.
My flowers were everything I ever wanted but never knew how to express! Wade at Blue Moon Florist in Downingtown somehow figured out what I was looking for, despite my flip-flopping back and forth, and what resulted was the most perfect bouquet I could have ever imagined.
Our programs! I slaved over these in the week before the wedding. I used the die-cut pieces left over from our invitations as front and back covers (go, recycling!), Gocco’d the covers with silver ink, and attached the covers to an accordion style interior with all of our ceremony information. I finished them off (and held them closed) with a 1/8″ wide silver satin ribbon. I promise that a detailed DIY tutorial is to come soon!
The walk down the aisle with my parents… my mom was excited! And I couldn’t keep my eyes off of Mr. Cupcake. I teared up a tiny bit, but I held it together much more than I expected to.
The photo mats that I Gocco’d for people to showcase their photos were a big hit and it was great seeing everyone show them off all night.
Our well-wishes memo board was also a hit…. we got some great notes from friends and family throughout the night!
Our cake! You may remember that I came up with the design myself, based on our invitation design, and the wonderful bakers at Sweet Jazmine’s made it a reality. Flowers from Blue Moon topped it off perfectly.
Mr. Cupcake’s best man gave a very memorable and wonderful toast. He included some heart-felt words about his best friend, Mr. Cupcake, and then at the perfect moment, he threw in, “and now you join together for better or for worse… Nick couldn’t do better, and Brooke couldn’t do worse.” It was perfectly timed and the laughter erupted. What a perfect way to lighten things up. 🙂
Mr. Cupcake and his mom sharing a sweet moment after their adorable dance together. Here you can see a good shot of the dance floor lighting (a cool peacock feather pattern) that was set up by Synergetic Sounds and Lighting.
A cool shot of one of our photo booth pictures, our teal napkins, silver chargers that I bought from Save On Crafts, our toasting glasses, and our “little blank book” place cards! (I promise to blog more about our place cards soon.)
Setting up our Tastykake dessert display towards the end of the night!
So, there you have it…. the teaser to end all teasers. BIG thanks to the Wiebners for putting together such an amazing collection of shots! (And also for putting up with our stalking… we were a little excited to see these!) As soon as we have more photos to share, I will be posting about all of the details of our day in greater detail. I can’t wait to share with you all!
