Kerry and Justin were high school sweethearts (let me hear those “awwwwwws”!) that dated for eleven years before getting married. Their wedding in September 2007 incorporated a color palette of green, brown, tan, and bronze and incorporated natural elements as a design motif.
Isn’t the bride stunning? I love the floral hairpiece and birdcage veil!
Kerry designed their invitations herself with the help of Paper Source – they’re positively lovely, aren’t they?
And now for my favorite shots of the day… two of the couple!
