It’s hard to contain the beauty from Andrea & Scott’s wedding day. So I stopped trying. Let’s just unleash it. It’s everywhere. The flowers are ah-mazing (yes, that misspelled kind) and there might be 200 extra pictures of them below because of it. Andrea was made for the dress she chose, the flutter of the bridesmaid dresses, the swagger of the guys, the fun of the lawn games, the whimsy and magic of The Farm at Dover, and most importantly (and most apparent) the so-thick-you-can-taste-it love between Andrea & Scott. This little snippet from their ceremony says it best:
And just as sure as seasons are made for change
Our lifetimes are made for years
So I… I will be here
We’ll be together
I will be here

The symbols of love are always different. For some, it’s jewelry, having his favorite drink on hand, a particular spot for dinner, or a favorite sweatshirt maybe. For Jamie, it’s a hand-made stocking from his Mom. For years, Jen had coveted the collection of stockings at his family’s christmas celebration. She had joked that there wasn’t one for her, and Jamie’s Mom had always quipped back “Not till there’s a ring!”. When she opened the door one October day after work and found her house decorated for Christmas, somehow it didn’t register. But, when she saw the stockings on the mantel – the familiar one with Jamie’s name on it, and right next to it….one with her own. Then she knew. This was it, she was in.

For Matt and Laura, love is bold. Bright-blinking-neon bold. Against a backdrop of soft minty green and filmy white layers were numerous pops of neon pink, stunning baubles, sparkling rivers of gold, spicy popcorn and the cutest little puppy flower girl. Theirs was a stylish day, one that had careful consideration in every detail. If you push aside the boldness, you find so much depth. And that is really a great synopsis of Laura & Matt themselves. They are outwardly gregarious, fun, and colorful as a couple. Look past that and you’ll find a woman who plans each day, each moment of their lives to be as beautiful and meaningful as possible. And a Man who with a wink and a touch of his hand can calm her.
