Real Wedding: Natalie + Lincoln

by Niki in — Updated December 21, 2019 — Reading Time: 3 minutes

I love Courtney from Merriment Events, and it’s not just because she’s incredibly sweet. There’s something about her work that is always very warm and intimate to me while still including grand gestures or quirky details for the WOW factor that brides are always looking for. When Courtney sent me this wedding (shot by Jennifer Colina Photography), it was hard not to smile at how charming and romantic it was and then – I fell over when I saw the vintage sheet music flowers on the wall. Talk about traditional with a spin! Courtney incorporated them because Lincoln, the groom, is a musician – I love that it all comes back to the couple!
