Justin & Mary Brides: Killer Details!

And now, here are those killer details from Kristin & Chad’s wedding I was telling you about!! This post should really double as a killer details/people who blow us away post because most of these crazy insane details came about at the hands of one of the most talented artists we know: Katherine Jacob of KDJ Botanica. My cursor is taunting me as I try to put into words how lush, thoughtful, nuanced and truly moving her work is. What she does with flowers makes us want to be better at photography. Because to see someone else excel in their craft the way that she does at hers should be an inspiration to artists everywhere. There. I think that says it pretty well!! :)

As always, the itty bitty clothes pins and just the presentation that goes into every project Katherine works on is awe inspiring.

If you think the bouts & bouquets were impressive, just wait until you see what was waiting for us at the cocktail hour!! Go ahead….feast your eyes on this! Come back for seconds.

Kristin & Chad get the credit for these super cute homemade drink stirrers. They served Chad’s mom’s secret family recipe for sweet tea during cocktail hour, and had these set out with it!


Ok, now brace yourself for the visual euphoria that is about to take place….INCREDIBLE, right?!


Mint & peaches on a golden summer afternoon. Perfection.

Look at the attention to detail. Can you believe those little antique pots??


Then we headed inside and found that the tables inside were just as perfect. Simple, delicate deliciousness.

Kristin & Chad’s delicious cake from The Cake Boutique looked so good that I wanted to smush my face in it. But I didn’t. I almost got arrested the last time I did that.

Chad is from Kentucky and Kristin is from Connecticut, so there was some good ole fashioned rivalry!!

The super cute table numbers were handmade for K & C by one of their family members.

Yea….I know. I’m hungry now too!! Happy Monday!!

    Beautiful work you guys, and beautiful work as always, Katherine!!!

    Awesome shots you guys!! You guys do a great job at real-life quality photos, that you feel you can jump into. I loved the floral arrangements for the cocktail hour, especially the second photo. And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all of the attention to the detail that this couple put into this wedding. Things such as "paying extra special attention" to detail, especially for a wedding, makes life so much more worthwhile (if that makes any kind of sense. Hehe).

    I just love when people put their all into something (especially something like a wedding). Katherine Jacob did a wonderful job. And you two are just killer with the lens. =D

    Just once, just once I would like to turn up to a wedding and have details like these. Aussie brides don’t spend a lot on flowers at receptions or the little details. I wish I could be a wedding planner to my brides as well as a photographer! These shots rock my world :)
