On June 21, 2015, the very 1st day of the summer, I had the pleasure of meeting Lara and Sean for their wedding day! It was filled with warmth, laughter and family.
I had never met them before, only speaking over the phone and I was so happy to be greeted with a hug from the gorgeous bride and her maid of honor, her sister.
That set the tone for the rest of day-sweet smiles and genuine affection! Meredith Manor in Pottstown, PA was the backdrop to this burlap and lace, vintage wedding.
Lara wore a vintage lace overlay worn by her mother on her wedding day. It was made by her grandmother, who although is no longer with us, was a part of day…The overlay is so gorgeous! It has stood the test of time and was a symbolic representation of a mothers love and covering. It was so beautiful to see Lara wear this for her very own day! She twirled in it and it was in a word…enchanting!
Lara’s hair was divine! Her tendrils were swept up and carefully constructed into a perfectly loose bun. Honestly, I adore this look! It is boho-chic at its finest!
Each bridesmaid wore a blue dress with fabulous nude heels. I loved that they each had the same color, and each dress was just a touch different. The groomsmen were outfitted in coordinating vest and had burlap covered boutineers.
Every detailed put into this wedding was vintage, burlap and lace. The contrast in textures was achieved in a completely flawless way. The cake topper with the Mr. + Mrs. Owl was hand painted by the grooms mother. Lara and Sean’s family were a complete joy to be around. We had such a wonderful time capturing the formal images. Lara and Sean have a beautiful connection. At one point she said ” You’re my husband!” she broke into a giggle and Sean scooped her up and gave her a sweet tender look. I live for these moments! I get to be a witness and memory keeper of their love story. I am surely blessed to do something I love!
Lara and Sean, I wish you every happiness as you begin you lives together as Mr. + Mrs. O’Connell. You are off to an amazing start. Being with you on your wedding day was so much fun! Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your day!
