Happy Friday! Finally Friday has arrived, and that means we are hours away from departing for Puerto Vallarta! Yay!! Bring on the wedding weekend!
I have to wonder, though, why does it pour down with stress just before leaving for a little vacay? It makes the vacay that much more meaningful, but I could go without the real job dramas!
Anywho, we have a fun wedding to share with you today! This wedding was submitted today from Laurie Carpenter Photography. There are unique elements in this wedding that really stand out, from an extraordinary venue to a cake unlike I've ever seen!
I reached out to the lovely bride, Lindsey, to shed some pretty light onto the unique elements of her wedding, which I will share throughout the post.
I present to you Laurie Carpenter Photography!
From the beginning, I knew I wanted to pick colors that I would be happy looking at for the rest of my life, since wedding photos are always around! My favorite "colors" are black and white; they're just timeless. But I wanted to add a little bit of color to accent the summer yet modern feeling. I decided that the clover green would be perfect; plus it looked great on all my bridesmaids!
We knew we didn't want a hotel wedding, and we had a challenge on our hands because of the size of our wedding. So we set out to find a place that was large enough to hold our group but also a place that we could really show off who we were. It ended up being the perfect venue for our day!
Zach (my husband, obviously! :)) is a huge comic book fan. He was really set on having an amazing superhero cake, and Jay Qualls of Maple Cakes totally delivered! He not only did superhero's, but really incorporated other comics/cartoons that my husband loved as a kid...and still loves. :) I knew it was important to Zach to have this be a huge part of the wedding, and I'm glad it was; everyone LOVED it and just couldn't get enough!
Many thanks to Lindsey for sharing her details to her planning process! I love the groom's cake!
I also love the street images, especially the walk across the street, à la Abbey Road style-classic! Laurie Carpenter truly grasped Lindsey and Zach's fun style, their energy, and most importantly, their adoring love.
Thanks to Laurie Carpenter Photography for submitting Lindsey & Zach's energetic and beautiful wedding!
