Let’s kick this Wednesday off right with a perfectly adorable wedding shot by Megan Plenge Photography. Full of handmade touches and heartfelt gestures that went beyond decor, Blain and Russell’s wedding marks the spot for a sweet homespun fête.
From the bride: We wanted our wedding to reflect our sweet, playful love & our fun, artsy and musical families. I imagined a whimsical, home-made and vintage backyard wedding with our families playing the music with coca-cola bottles in hand, and what we came up with was truly a dream come true! Growing up in the Arizona desert the one thing I knew was cactus wasn’t for me! I wanted lush greenery and cooler air and I immediately remembered a sweet yellow school house that I had passed on the way to my Grandmothers house as a little girl. When I was researching it, I found out, lo and behold, they now hold weddings! Once we booked our dream location, Twin Oaks Estates, everything fell into place.
From Megan Plenge Photography : Aside from their full time jobs, Graham is a member of the Professional Disc Golf Association & Lauren has spent her free time working in theater & 50’s pin up modeling. This wedding was a true representation of their personalities & love. As a definite labor of love, this wedding was full of amazing details including handmade bridesmaids dresses by the brides mom, centerpieces created from antiques collected by relatives, personalized handkerchiefs, candy bar filled w/the couples favorite treats, one-of-a-kind boutonnieres made of embroidered flowers, scrabble letters & antique keys. The venue, Twin Oaks Estate, was the perfect fit for this couple complete with an 1800s schoolhouse for the bride to get ready in & serve as a perfect vintage backdrop. The owners of the Estate had recently purchased a section of a pub bar sent from London to add an old-fashioned feel. Other details included the grooms younger brother singing “I wanna grow old with you” during the ceremony & the band made up of the bride’s grandparents, groom’s father & brother. A completely adorable evening, with a new detail around every corner, was spent with this couple whose vision of a backyard vintage wedding came true!
