During my creative session with Joy I remember saying “I think I want the wedding to feel like this scene in my head: A group of family & friends attending a baptism at a fountain in an Italian city & then together celebrating the baptism over dinner at a family’s small garden in the village.” It sounded weird saying it out loud, but that vision embodied the refreshing, life-filled, warm, intimate celebration I imagined ourwedding to be. We were blessed with amazing family and friends who are not only incredibly talented but also so selfless & giving. All of these people made our wedding more than I could have ever imagined & filled our hearts more than I knew could be filled. My Italian grandmother and aunt made the delicious feast, while Caitlin made the perfect little panna cottas for dessert. My sister and I made the hypertufa pots for each table and Katie potted beautiful, unruly arrangements in them- which I proudly still nurture & keep today! The candles were a therapeutic project my sister and I took on; making them tall, thin, and perfectly imperfect. And my dad, who gave the most of all, built our long wooden dinner tables and hand laid century-old bricks for a patio for us to eat on- both of these tasks being completely new to him.

I’m so thankful for this celebration we have of beauty, love, and family. I’m grateful for the beautiful process of planning for a wedding & every conversation leading up to ours with Joy, Ginny, Tec, Meagan, Joanna, Katie, Emily, Caitlin and our sweet family & friends…. Our hearts are so full. We are so thankful for each of you.
