Real Wedding - Denton, TX

I know that you're all going to love this wedding, not only because its filled with personal touches but there is a custom damask cupcake stand! Not to mention, Lynn Michelle Photography has a quirky little gnome that makes an appearance during each of their weddings (you'll see him in the next post). But before we get to all that, meet Mandy and Michael - married September 6, 2008. The ring pillow above was actually from Mandy's Great Grandmother, with whom she shares a middle name. Mandy's "something blue" was the ribbon on this handkerchief, given to her by Michael's three year old cousins:
After Mandy's Nana passed away, her Papa gave her this ring (which belonged to Nana) as a gift at her bridal shower. Mandy wore it on her wedding day as her "something old."
The bridesmaids bouquets are all in white and the flower girls bouquets are in pink. Instead of throwing flowers or carrying pomanders, the flower girls each carried their own little bouquets.
Mandy's other "something old" and "something borrowed" was her mother's locket, given to her when she was 12 by her own mother. Mandy pinned it to her bouquet:
The bridesmaids wore long black satin dresses by Bill Levkoff (style 557), which you will see a full shot of in the next post, and the necklaces were ordered from Majestic Bridal.
Mandy and Michael decided to see each other before the ceremony, but when she got down the stairs to meet him he was too nervous to turn around! The next to pictures are so sweet - completely nervous and then really emotional...
The boys boutonnieres, made up of hydrangeas and roses:
The ceremony took place at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Denton, TX. Mandy and Michael's little flower girls and ring bearer are as cute as they come. I think they look so sweet carrying their little bouquets - and they held hands down the aisle!Stay tuned for the reception and the amazing cupcake stand in just a few minutes...
