Mike and Charlotte's Wedding

It has been a long time coming but here are just some pictures from Mike and Charlotte's May 30th wedding. I have known Mike for a few years now (he is a fraternity brother of my husband's) but I really enjoyed getting to know Charlotte and the two of them as a couple. I had such a fun time working with them and they really did plan a beautiful wedding. Both the ceremony and reception took place at Mary Nelle's Windswept Farm in Lebanon OH. The ceremony took place overlooking a small lake followed by a tented cocktail hour and then everyone moved into the barn for some dinner and dancing. Avant Gardens did a beautiful job on all of the flowers and a delicious cake was provided by Dorthy Lane Market. And thanks so much to Jessica, of Images by Daniel Michael & Co., for the beautiful pictures.

The Wedding Cardigan

It makes me a little bit sad that I can't find a picture to show you what I will be talking about, but I will do my best to describe it anyway!

We have been blessed with some cooler weather here in South-West Ohio and it has started to get me excited for fall which is my favorite season for weddings. I was watching a "wedding television show" today and noticed that one of the brides was wearing a beautiful ivory cardigan over her strapless wedding gown. I loved the contrast of something as glamorous as a wedding gown covered by something as comforting (but still equally as beautiful) as a cardigan. Then, I received a J. Crew catalog in the mail today and in the J. Crew Weddings section, there was a bridesmaid wearing a cardigan!

It is a look I have seen on flower girls before as summer evenings turn chilly but I love that this look is turning up on the more mature members of the bridal party too!
