And now, Part II of Rachel & Terry’s Romance, WV Wedding!!!
Right after the ceremony, we snuck off to grab a few pictures while R&T soaked in the feeling of being married!! This is something we like to do with all of our couples because you can never get back that what I like to call “Holy crap we’re married!!!” feeling!!! :)
Yea….I know! Rachel lived by Karen Bussen’s Simple Stunning Wedding Planner, and this candle set up came straight from there!
Now how about this for things working out perfectly: it had POURED the entire day. Like with massive flooding and all. But as soon as R&T were ready to walk out of the church: it stopped. Just long enough for us to grab some super fun portraits with the crazy fog in the background!!
Now, back to the peacock feathers!! They were in the flowers, as you can see, and then each bridesmaid wore a different one. We have a necklace, a belt and a hairpiece!!
Ok….so now I have to give a lil’ dissertation on the power of Yes. Sure, sure it’s also probably a dissertation on the power of Asking, but really it was all about the Yes. The coordinator at the Clay Center was the BOMB DOT COM!!! Seriously!! See, Justin & I ever so innocently asked if they could just, y’know, open up the entire theatre and give us unfettered access to it….FULLY expecting to be shot down Top Gun Maverick style….when this coordinator simply said: Yes.
Ahhhh, yes. The sweetest word I’ve ever heard. And it didn’t stop there.
Ok….but could we play with the house lights to light everything up? Yes. Hmmm really? Well what about the stage? Can we go on the stage? Yes. Uh huh, well how about that Steinway baby grand you got there that’s probably worth about $100k? Can we let our bride sit on it with her red heels on….would that be possible?
Yes. And let me take the cover off for you.
And as they say, that has made all the difference. So thank you Clay Center coordinator lady. If you lived in CT, we would be best friends forever. Muah!
I kept telling these guys to rock it Mad Men style. Even though none of us really knew what that meant. But somehow, these guys just GOT IT!!! BAM!!!
Yes, she is the cutest thing EVER!!
So Matt the Best Man was actually one of our very first clients from 2006. Terry was the best man in his wedding and that’s how these guys found us. Erica (Matt’s wife) was also a bridesmaid (the one with the peacock feather headpiece), so it was like the best reunion ever! I love it when that happens!
Stay tuned for more of those killer details coming up!!
