Andrea + Jeff Get Married! { by kitty }

I clearly recall my first meeting with Andrea... which was all of 30 minutes, if memory serves.  It was very clear that the wedding was going to be a small, intimate, no fuss, relaxed get together.  And that it was!

The dress: Wow. Pink!  Love it.

Fun moment: Andrea giggling during the bridal portraits due to feeling like a "fake model"...when in fact, she did a fantastic job.

 Favorite thing about Andrea & Jeff's portrait session: they are excellent cuddlers and easily make each other laugh.  Second favorite thing: their little son in his teeny suit.
 The aesthetics melded seamlessly into the Bridal Garden at Franklin Park Conservatory.  Everything was soft and light and airy.  Caroline and I couldn't stop taking photos of the arrangements by TeAmo Flowers and the ephemera by On Paper.

Fabulous thing: flavored lemonaid and punch outside for guests before the ceremony.  Great idea for hot wedding days!
 Practical thing: Ohio weather is about as predictable as a wild animal and the forecasts change by the minute.  It looked like it would hold off, but there in the middle of the ceremony, it decided to rain.  I keep that pretty antique brolly in my car for such occasions and I was glad to have it on hand - Andrea and Jeff braved through the shower and continued on.  Funny moment: the officiant asking "Can I put this down now? My arm's getting tired!" - the rain had stopped about 5 minutes beforehand. :)
 More fabulous things: calligraphied favor bags doubling as seating cards, macarons, little suitcases full of fun "busy" toys for the kids.
 "Awww" moment: Andrea and Jeff finishing their first dance with their son in their arms.

Andrea's dress: Vera Wang, spring 2011 - Bridal and Formal, Cinci / Andrea's hair: Beth Seitz / Andrea's makeup: Leigh Ann Ehmann / venue: Franklin Park Conservatory / flowers: TeAmo Flowers via Flowers on Orchard Lane / cake: Jan Kish ~ La Petite Fleur / macarons: Pistacia Vera / invitations, programs, etc: On Paper
