Wedding Bliss: Ambiance & Decor

With this past record breaking blizzard, Zach and I completely forgot that our 6 month anniversary was this past Sunday (1/24/16).  

So in celebration of being half-way to our 1st year of marriage, I am so excited to finally share memories of the most amazing day in our lives.

Thanks to my fabulous photographer Ica (IcaImages) for capturing every beautiful moment that we will cherish forever.  She is an amazing photographer if you're looking for beautiful talent in Maryland.

This will be the first of a five chapter (post) series titled "Wedding Bliss".  I hope these photographs inspire you, whether you are planning a wedding or are a design/decor fanatic like I am.

In this chapter, I want to share our wedding decor which many were handcrafted by yours truly and my crafty friends.  I also wanted to share our beautiful venue space.  My day-of wedding coordinator made my vision come together so perfectly.
