Monika & Kevin. 20 Mile House Wedding.

The pine trees that surrounded the 20 Mile House seemed to reach all the way to the blue, blue sky. While Monika’s ivory lace dress hung in the corner of the room, she chatted with her bridesmaids, wrote a note to Kevin & excitedly laughed as she prepared for her walk down the aisle. Just down the road, Kevin’s groomsmen helped him tie his tie & he opened a gift from Monika-he was just as excited as she was to be married. Monika & Kevin are the kind of people who are constantly happy-and in turn, they are constantly making other people happy…they could have been married in a hurricane & they STILL would have been blissfully happy. Monika & Kevin couldn’t wait for their wedding to begin-to finally begin their lives as husband & wife. Monika cried as she walked down the aisle to a beaming Kevin who held her hands during the ceremony. They both laughed & cried as they were announced husband & wife. It was an exciting, beautiful, romantic day that was made even better because Monika & Kevin are such wonderful people.

Their reception was completely, perfectly detailed-beautiful floral arrangements on each table, a bag of seeds for guests to take home & plant in their gardens, delicious food, a bluegrass band, and at each corner & area, there were cute details that Monika & Kevin had put together to customize their wedding. They danced, laughed at the hilarious (and heartfelt) toasts, mingled with each guest & spent the evening laughing & holding each other. The 20 Mile House in Graegle was the perfect backdrop for their outdoor wedding-pine trees for miles, great open spaces & just the kind of feeling that they wanted for their fun wedding.

Monika & Kevin-thank you sooooooo much for not only choosing me to document your wedding, but for treating me like a dear old friend. You both have the ability to make everyone around you feel happy & it’s because you both exude joy in everything you do. You are a darling, fun & perfect couple & I couldn’t have asked for better clients who put total trust in me. Wishing you the happiest life EVER-you both deserve it. XOXO, marielle.

Aren’t Monika’s shoes DARLING?!?!

Monika was a totally amazing DIY bride-she painted these signs!
