Emily & Ryan

"Wow" is all I can say. Occassionally we will have a wedding that turns out even better than we could have imagined. This is one of those times. Emily and Ryan were married at Saint Benedict's Catholic Church which happened to be literally next door to Emily's parent's home, where the reception was held. Emily knew early on she wanted a green color palatte infused with ivory, natural brown tones and plum. Emily wanted a very organic look and chose natural elements for her decor- moss, branches, artichokes, succulants, water, candlelight, etc., even using wood pieces carved by her father to hold the table names. The table names were inspired by Emily and Ryans love of travel and nature. Instead of cake, the couple decided to go with Ryan's favorite- brownie sundaes! A dessert station allowed guests to customize their very own sundae. The band was amazing- complete with "Michael Jackson," who even managed to get Emily up on stage. It was a pleasure working with the lovely Orchard family to create this stunning event. Tina Rowden captured these amazing images.
