This wedding was my first one back after having our baby girl last summer and let me tell you, it could not have been more perfect! I may have teared up on several occasions throughout the day partly due to hormones but mostly due to how adorably loved and fun and kind Justin and Olivia both are. It was no secret how much they mean to each other, to their families and to their dear friends. Showered with love and support, their dewy warm wedding day couldn’t be brought down by the heat but instead lasted through the night in celebration of two very deserving individuals. It was such a joy to look through these beautiful images again after finally getting around to blogging it nearly 1 year later. Enjoy this preview of J + O’s stunning late summer wedding at the Ritz Charles Garden Pavilion!

Things I personally loved about this wedding: the stunning late summer/early fall color scheme and flowers to match by our favorite Molly & Myrtle, the beautiful taupe bridesmaids dresses and their long flowy hair styles, the luminous light let in by the garden pavilion’s gorgeous white windows all evening, the sweet exchanging of a handkerchief by Olivia’s father right before their ceremony, the first dances at the reception where all the tears flowed from my eyes, and the never ending smiles on the bride + groom’s face all day long.
