Oh friends, have you ever had one of those days where it felt like everything that could go wrong, did? You put your heart into something and things just didn’t go as planned? It can be hard to get back up from that. I’m not going to lie, this shoot was definitely one of those times. But, I think it needed to be.

Because despite all your efforts, your wedding day probably will not go off without a hitch either (and it will be okay!). The flowers might get mixed up, a groomsmen might forget a tie, it may rain, or the cake may have the wrong icing. But at the end of the day, you are getting married and that is worth celebrating. That is what everyone is there for. That will outshine even the prettiest of details, because love is the only gold. 

The vision for this shoot was from a play by Alfred Lord Tennyson that goes like this:

” ELEANOR: We can’t all of us be as pretty as thou art–

… Come, here is a golden chain I will give thee if thou wilt lead me to thy mother.

GEOFFREY: No–no gold. Mother says gold spoils all. Love is the only gold. “

I first saw the quote on a Lindsay Letters print and loved the idea of putting together a shoot that focuses on the riches of love and marriage and would hopefully inspire brides that are real romantics.  Kat from Dear Sweetheart Events helped design the shoot with me, and it was so fun to work together because it was once something we had once only day-dreamed about getting to do in college.

The vendor team for the shoot was amazing and helped pull something beautiful together even with all the hiccups along the way. Special thanks to:

Bekah, I love your perspective on the hiccups we had with this shoot. You're so right that this can often happen on the actual wedding day (it happened to me!) but the love you share is really all that matters. I always tell people when looking back at my wedding day that a lot of the details came out wrong and it did frustrate me that day, but in the grand scheme of things I'd rather have a kickass marriage and a mediocre wedding than the other way around. 5 years later, I still feel this way! Thanks for the sweet reminder, and thanks for including me in this beautiful shoot. I always love when we get to work together. <3
