Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. I had so much fun celebrating the wedding of my dear friends Sarah + Joel in Cape Cod the past few days. What a gorgeous location for a wedding! And to start the week off on Green Wedding Shoes, I have a lovely backyard wedding to share from Love Me Do Photography. The celebration took place in Lydia’s parents backyard which overlooks fields of grasses in Worcester, PA. It was a family affair as Lydia’s dress was her mom’s which she hand made when she got married and her grandmother did the embroidery. The invites + rings were by her brother adam smith, and her sister-in-law Halligan Norris made the cake topper + programs.
I LOVE the seating with the hay bales and the pretty ribbons lining the aisle.
My aunt did the girls bouquets. Jessica Knarr and I made the center pieces, and my mom did all the potted plants.
The dancing in the last images if from a West African dance group in Philly – Croatan Studios – that Lydia is a part of. They taught all the guests some West African dances and then they had a dance where all the girls are on one side and all the guys on the other, a sort of mating ritual dance.
