I am learning how to make bride and groom cookies today for our wedding favors, and I can’t wait to report back. Depending on the results, I may or may not want to show you my cookie designing talent!
Today’s mint and coral shabby chic wedding was captured by Erica Mendenhall Photography, and I love that the ceremony location was on a bridge. Plus, the bride is wearing a Maggie Soterro gown, so it is truly a win-win all around.
Photographer’s Comments: “Jessica and Jimmy’s beautiful May wedding took place at the gorgeous Classic Club Golf, which is famous for it’s course, but also an amazing place for weddings! Earlier in the year we photographed their engagement session there as well.
“Their wedding style was a mix of DIY, vintage (her gown was a gorgeous cream tone with detailed lace), and luxury – given it’s venue location. As a hairstylist and makeup artist herself, Jessica styled her own hair and makeup as well as many of the Bridesmaids.
“The hashtag #1eyewedding was used throughout – the history behind that is actually unfortunate, but this couple has turned the focus into something fun, not something to feel bad about. Jimmy lost his eye in an accident at work and despite his loss of sight in one eye, their commitment, love and joy has never ceased but only grown stronger.
“They were a delight, full of laughs, jokes, especially during their bridal portraits. This wedding was nothing short of jokes, laughter and love.”
