Sam and Tom wrote to me about their wedding plans : “Having things handmade or DIY was very important to us; even our wedding bands are handmade! We rallied several of our friends and family for help, from the paper moon and flowers to the desserts to the officiant (a longtime family friend)! We wanted this wedding to feel uniquely ours but also to allow our loved ones to feel involved in several aspects of the day.”
Thanks to their family, friends and wedding coordinator what could have been a wedding disaster, when Tom and Sam’s original ceremony venue was unavailable due to the government shut-down, a new location was secured with only days to spare and all of their plans came together wonderfully on their big day!
It has been my pleasure to get to know these two and we couldn’t be happier for them!
First the rings, the wedding bands were handcrafted from designs that Tom and Sam created. The engagement band is a family piece.
Loved Sam’s Whichgoose floral crown.
And her Jeffrey Campbell shoes.
It’s always so special when the father-of-the-bride sees his baby in her dress for the first time.
Sam’s dried lavender bouquet and other floral decorations were from Paula’s Garden.
Tom and Sam chose to see each other for a First Look before the ceremony.
These two are my favorites of Sam right before she met Tom to exchange vows.
I’m so grateful Robert was positioned to capture Sam’s emotions!
The image below on the right is my favorite image that Robert captured, I love everything about it!
The next two are from Robert as well.
The couple of stargazers so we wanted to make sure to capture the starry night sky on their big day.
Tom & Sam - Thank you for letting us share you special day! We loved seeing your dreams for your perfect day come together in such a wonderful way! XOXO
