FROM MORGAN :: Maren and Quint’s mutual love for art inspired a lot of their wedding choices. They picked the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art as their venue, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect backdrop. Maren and her mom collaborated on all of their paper goods, incorporating Mrs. Brown’s paintings and some pretty fantastic hand lettering. They even had their parents and some of their bridal party members draw illustrations of them, which they displayed on a giant easel at the reception, alongside some of their own artwork from their childhood (TOO CUTE).
But what got me the most, more than any of the design elements (although those were wonderful to photograph), was the sheer amount of joy and emotion that was so evident throughout the entire day. From the moment Maren’s father and brother saw her in her dress for the first time (during which there wasn’t a dry eye in the room, including my own), to the bridesmaids chanting Quint’s name and cheering as he showed up to the house for the first look, to the graceful way in which Maren handled the news that the outdoor ceremony she had envisioned would have to be moved inside due to rain, to the playful and affectionate way that Maren and Quint interact with each other…. it was all just about more than any one heart (or camera) could handle.
