This wedding, aside from taking place at one of my all-time favorite venues, was a particularly musical and artistic affair. The groom’s father actually hand-wrote and arranged the music for their Villanova ceremony which was so beautiful. Laurie texted me while she was shooting groom’s prep to say ‘they are rehearsing the ceremony music and its magical – you’d be in heaven!’ Meanwhile, back at the bride’s childhood home, I was immersed in my own version of magic: thoughtful gifts were exchanged, tears were shed and there was just a feeling of quiet love all around.
Colleen, an avid book lover, had these special ‘book-quets’ made for each of her bridesmaids. Inside the covers were heartfelt inscriptions to each of her girls. Check them out down below, they were just perfect.
