How thrilling to share these photos from Katie and Josh's summer wedding. The couple + Suann of Simplesong Design + Ritzybee Events + photographer Bryan Johnson + florist Sidra Forman = what a vision! It was delightful working with them.

As I was thumbing through the photos let me tell you what blew my mind. The breakfast pictured above. I didn't know what the menu and place cards would be used for at the time but now I get it. And if I have surmised correctly, somebody had the foresight to arrange for a quiet moment the morning of the big day on a grassy lawn where the couple could enjoy each other's company, and a delicious meal-- the calm before the storm. Genius. I won't get into what I was doing the morning of my wedding but let's just say it involved floral tape and chalk pens.

Huge props to the folks responsible for this idea, and for executing it -- and the entire day -- so beautifully. And heaps of thanks to Suann, Ritzybee, Bryan and Southern Weddings (which featured the day over here).
