Real Wedding: Jenn & Chris

i am really excited to show you this wedding sent to me by the talented Levi Stolove Photography, for a couple of reasons. first, i LOVE that the bride wore blue! yes! so lovely to see such a gorgeous color on a bride! second, the charming quirkiness of the backyard setting is refreshingly inviting. and third, kind of like the'll see :)

here's a little from the bride, Jenn:

Chris and I had our wedding in my parent's beautiful tree lined back yard in Fairport, NY in June 26th. There was some rain but it was a perfect spot for an outdoor wedding. We had a big tent with a small dance floor. We wanted the wedding to have a handmade kind of feel, and used paper lanterns, handmade origami objects we made ourselves, tea lights in pretty cupcake cups and wild flowers in vintage blue Ball jars to decorate. The flowers came from generous local friends who arrived with buckets of flowers before the wedding. My sister Amy arranged the flowers and created bouquets with wild sweet pea flowers.

My dress was a miracle, it was a gown by Carmen Marc Valvo found on sale (75% off!) at Bergdorf Goodman's in NYC. The color was perfect for me, I didn't want a white dress and I loved the cut and tiered layers. Chris's clothing and shoes were from Barney's in Boston, his suit was by Jill Sander. We really wanted live music for our wedding and found a fantastic band from Boston willing to travel out to Fairport. They played bluegrass and covered a few songs we requested, including a song during the wedding ceremony. Our phenomenal photographer Levi Stolove did an amazing job capturing our wedding, his energy and eye for detail come through in his pictures.

It was a great day, we were really pleased with everything!
