When Annalily first approached me to do her wedding, I have to admit it: I was nervous. You see, you know those amazing displays at Anthropologie? You know, the same ones that are so awesome I’ve even blogged about them? Yea, Annalily makes those. She is gorgeous, creative, and – lucky for me – also incredibly sweet. And, when she and Michael decided to book me for their summer nuptials I couldn’t have been more excited.

So, one cloudy June afternoon, Annalily and Michael got married on the gorgeous porch of their neighbor’s home and threw an amazing reception in the backyard of her parent’s home. It was coordinated down to the very last detail. Stunning handmade florals, jarred sweet tomato pickle favors, self-written vows, hand-painted wooden signs, you name it… and they thought of it. Though the morning brought a huge downpour of rain, I think it’s apparent that even that couldn’t put a damper on how lovely the day was.

And, I couldn’t have been more honored to be a part of something so wonderful.

As a preface, check out Annalily & Michael’s adorable engagement session here.

Annalily’s gift to her bridesmaids – stunning unique rings. Aren’t they gorgeous?

And then it was on to the ceremony…

Handmade and hung by Annalily. Amazing, right?

After the ceremony, one of their “must have” shots was a fun, relaxed shot of everyone standing altogether. So, up on a ladder I went and… voila!

…and then on to the lovely reception…
