This just makes me smile. And laugh. And cry a little :) Colleen and Christopher are so perfect for each other, they have this amazing connection. Then again, what’s not to love? Christopher is funny, talented, kind. Colleen is exuberant. She’s caring, honest, and absolutely hilarious. She had everyone cracking up that morning, making light of the craziness of the day while Julie Strating finished up her makeup. It was pouring rain outside, of course! Luckily, Bay Pointe Inn has an amazing outdoor pavilion with rain walls that come down and still let in tons of natural light. It’s one of our favorite places, and we can see why Colleen & Christopher chose it. It’s cool and casual, and it’s a blank slate. Perfect, because these two had LOTS of ideas. Working together with amazing vendors like paper + pinafore, Modern Day Floral and Sweet Cake Designs pretty much guaranteed amazing details, and they did not disappoint! Jamie and I, along with Ryan and his team from Epic Motion pretty much went detail-shooting crazy when we saw the incredible setup! Flowers, burlap, coffee beans, branches, lanterns, succulents, all kinds of etsy goodness. Add in an amazing couple, a bride and her bridesmaids in Lazaro gowns… ::sigh:: I die. You’ll see. It’s SO beautiful!
And, as luck would have it… that rain? Totally cleared up. They had an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day! We were SO glad – we had been looking forward to their wedding since we met them! They are so fun, adorable and so real. We love them! Not to mention, Colleen has “liked” or commented on pretty much everyone else’s wedding and engagement we’ve posted. What a honey, right? I think it’s time to show her the same sweetness! Leave her some love! AND… today just happens to be her birthday! Happy day, beautiful!!
