Vibrant. Unique. Eclectic.
Julia is an art teacher at a local high school, and a photographer herself. Her artistic eye was evident throughout the wedding day. Their choice of venue, C. Barton McCann School of Art, was one of the most interesting venues that I’ve ever seen. Statues, an entire art gallery, even a totem pole adorned the grounds! It was a truly fascinating place to celebrate a wedding. Add some vibrant colors and some off-beat spins on typical wedding traditions, and it was a perfectly unique Andrew & Julia wedding day.
Hemlock Cottage. Otherwise known as “the bridal suite.”
The groom & the “best woman” (the woman who introduced him to his future bride!) stepped inside the art gallery for a few moments before the ceremony.
The wedding ceremony took place in the Sculpture Garden. Stunning, peaceful place.
On a hot summer Saturday afternoon, these personalized fans were perfect, pretty and very useful!
A surprise exit with a bagpipe player!
The bride & groom created a lounge area for their guests from some of their own furniture. From all the people often crowding the area, it looked like the most popular spot of the day!
I loved that the bride changed into a bridal cocktail dress for the reception.
This fantastic cake by Kim Morrison was absolutely stunning on the outside and delicious on the inside. It also happens to be the only cake I have ever seen… cut by a sword-wielding bride and groom.
Congratulations, Andrew & Julia! May your life together be joyous and fulfilling!
