Handmade Wedding!!

So... Tim and I got married this past weekend!  

Here are the deets:

The ceremony: held amongst the flowers in the gardens at the Landis Arboretum in Esperance, NY

The dress: hand sewn by the Real Martha based on this Butterick Suzi Chin Maggy Boutique pattern with cross-over bust, empire waist and full skirt.  Made with white linen (from Hancock Fabrics) and mauve linen (from G Street Fabrics).  Easy and comfy to wear, beautifully made!!

The necklace: handmade by moi using multiple strands of freshwater pearls from Stars Beads, chunky and funky to contrast the sweet dress

The tie: revamped from one of my dad's old ties from the '80s by the super cute, friendly and talented ladies at Ginger Root Designs on U Street

The rings: hand-hammered from recycled sterling silver by Beth at Elizabeth Scott Designs

The dinner: catered by the lovely folks at A Taste of Europe in Cobleskill, NY.. my favorite was the spicy and rich goulash, or maybe the coq au vin.

The photography: beautifully shot by Jennifer
