You must, must go check out this amazing wedding on The Little White Book. I hesitate to call it a budget wedding, because that would strip away some of it’s magical essence. This is the kind of wedding you read about happening 40 years ago, and you sigh, and think “Why can’t that happen now?”
The bride wore her mother’s veil.
Susan planned the wedding in less then a month. She says it’s because she’s lazy, I say it’s because she’s brilliant! This is what she told me about her planning process: “All I knew was that I love both colonial-era style (I have a famous crush on the founding fathers en masse) and the early 1960s. And that I wanted to save all my money for our honeymoon.” See? With the awesomeness?
The couple got married in a small ceremony on the capital lawn in Richmond, Virgina… which is free, all you need is a permit.
They took pictures on a walk about town – that were Isweartogod based on old movie stills.
See, this the the way to toss the bouquet – silly style to your best friend.
The evening ended with a family dinner at a formal restaurant.
And by popular demand, they had a big party with all their friends to celebrate a week before the wedding. (Don’t you just want to hug them?)
And while you are there, you must check out The Little White Book. This is her maid of honor’s wedding, so you know she’s good people!
