I am excited to share this wedding with you for a lot of reasons, but most of all for the level of perspective it brings to wedding planning. As I was planning my own someone told me that if you say "I do" at the end of the day, that is really all that matters! Ben and Anna Grace are proof of that, and their joy and excitement shines through in the pictures from T2 Photography.
Ben and Anna Grace met at their church, and Anna Grace said that one day she wanted to "marry a guy just like Ben." So sweet. When they decided to get married they knew that they wanted it to be at Ben's grandparents cabin in North Carolina, and they planned for the wedding to be next year. But when they decided to take advantage of the beautiful fall colors they moved things up and planned the entire event in 8 weeks! And when they realized rain was inevitable on their day, they moved ahead regardless and the family scrambled to come up with a tent just in case. Thomas and Sarah Boutwell (the fantastic photographers) bought 8 umbrellas so that they could get some outdoor shots, and clearly those are some of the most beautiful images of the day. As it turned out, the rain only lasted for about 15 minutes and Ben & Anna Grace had a gorgeous outdoor wedding!
The his & her mugs you see were filled with warm apple cider, and Anna Grace adorned her shoes herself (below) with flowers. I just love that this was truly a family event, and that the show went on despite what could have been considered setbacks!
