In typical Molly style, her "something borrowed" was her mom's wedding dress. She had it altered (to fit her insanely tiny waist), and it looked absolutely gorgeous.When Molly came to visit me several months before the wedding, we hit up flea markets to find tea cups, dishes, and vases to use for the centerpieces. She collected old books, spray painted them white, and painted the table numbers on them.
The cocktail hour was outside in a bricked courtyard with snow cones and croquet for guests to entertain themselves.
All of the lovely images you're seeing were taken by our sweet friend Laura Kackley of Lark Photography. Laura was so nervous to shoot Molly's wedding because she had never worked any of her friends' weddings before. (A little bitterness there on my part...Tanya ,bow tie baby shower mama, and I not-so-subtly like to give Laura a hard time about not shooting our weddings. She was only 9 months pregnant at Tanya's wedding and about to deliver during mine...I really think she could've pulled it off.) By even mentioning this right now on a public forum, I think I'm breaking some pact that I made to never speak of it again...oops. Seriously, aren't her pictures divine? Every wedding she shoots looks like it's straight out of a magazine. She's featured again this month on Style Me Pretty.
It was so nice to be a part of a wedding post the massive wedding rush that happened in our circle a few years ago. We told Molly it was pretty smart of her to wait and get married after our broke, recently graduated years were over. She got much better wedding gifts than the rest of us, took a European honeymoon, and is living in an AMAZING loft in St. Louis. (House tour coming soon.) Honestly, I'm so happy for my "little sis" and felt so proud to be a part of her beautiful day.
Congrats Moll and Ed. Love you!
