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!

Where did they get their invites from? I love them!
Thank you so much for all of the sweet comments! Katie, Natalie and Lincoln’s invitations are from Linda & Harriet.
There are two things I love about this wedding, the bride’s shoes and the musical sheet flowers!!! Simply fabulous and glamorous.
The shoes are to die for!!! They are simply gorgeous!!! But what amazed me the most are the paper flowers and the gray initials N & L on the table that gave an impact on the whole wedding ambiance.Quite creative and romantic!!!
