i have been waiting and waiting to share this very special wedding with you, and i am SO thrilled the day has finally arrived that i can!! :) nancy & eddie were wed in june of this year and once the photos came back, we knew we had something very special on our hands. i held off on blogging as there was a high probability of the wedding being published in a magazine, but when the magazine shut its doors, beautiful bride nancy wanted to send this wedding to one place and one place only: mecca of all things gorgeous, style me pretty. abby is featuring the wedding today (eeek!!! our 2nd SMP feature in 3 weeks??? someone pinch me please!) and i am finally able to share the L&S view as well! make sure to click over here & here to see the SMP feature.
when anna and i met nancy and eddie, it was seriously love at first sight. these two are SUCH a darling pair! nancy came to that meeting so excited and enthusiastic about her big day, and i could see right away that this wedding was going to be three things: bursting with details, a joyful celebration, and SO much fun to work on! although i knew i was going to be out of town the weekend of nancy’s wedding, we suggested something very special (for the very first time) for her. i asked if she would be open to having me *and* anna work with her on the planning side, and then have anna lead the coordination efforts on the big day. our consultation was one of the most memorable yet. after our hour-long meeting, gushing over ideas and inspiration, we gave our hugs and saw nancy and eddie head back to the parking lot. anna and i were still sitting at the coffee bean, enjoying the last bit of our coffees, when i received a phone call. it was nancy and eddie IN THE PARKING LOT!!!, ready to book. :) i was overjoyed.
over the course of the months of planning, anna and i developed a wonderful friendship with nancy and eddie. she is one of the most thoughtful and kind people you will ever meet, and her anticipation for the big day paired with her overwhelming sweetness to us) made working with her a true pleasure in every single way. on the morning of nancy’s wedding, i texted her from palm springs (where i happened to be) and told her i had prayed a little prayer for her wedding day and upcoming marriage. she texted me back saying that she knew she was in great hands with anna and could not wait for the wedding! around midnight that evening, i received another call from nancy, who left me a thankful voicemail. could she be any sweeter??? we met for lunch a few months ago and we’re already planning another get-together. i know we will continue to share a beautiful friendship for years to come.
i hope you enjoy a glimpse at this beautiful, romantic, absolutely adorable wedding. nancy poured her heart into so many DIY projects and the result was simply lovely. the UTTERLY FAB photos were captured by two of my very favorite photographers (and people!), amelia & justin lyon. they were the perfect pair to capture the joy on this special day.
