Julie & Chris | brownfield, maine {wedding}

Julie is possibly the most creative and artistic person I know.  Ever since we were little kids I’ve known this girl was going places.  With a hugely successful fashion blog (Orchid Grey) Julie is taking the fashion world by storm.  Because of her creativity and hard work Julie’s wedding was full of killer DIY details that had me snapping thousands of photos.  I have been looking forward to this wedding for months and being able to be there to capture every detail and smile of Julie’s wedding day was truly an honor.

Julie & Chris were married at Julie’s childhood home.

The vintage typewriter guest book.

I know all of Julie’s thousands of blog followers have been dying to know what she was wearing as a wedding dress.  Julie saw this dress in the window at a consignment shop and scooped it up before she was even engaged.  This Betsey Johnson made the perfect wedding dress.  Don’t even get me started on her shoes- ugggh so pretty I may or may not have taken over 100 images of these shoes… can you blame me???

Trying to be budget savvy Julie did all the flowers herself- with the help of her bridesmaids and other family and friends.  They ordered some of the flowers from Sam’s Club and gathered the rest of the wildflowers from the side of the road the day before the wedding.  I am blown away by this girls talent… fashion blogger turned wedding planner and florist?

I’m very impressed that any of the images of the ceremony are in focus- thank god for auto focus or they would all be blurry.  I was crying like a baby.

How stinkin’ cute are they?

Oh the desserts!!!!  They had pie, cake, cupcakes and more.  All homemade.  I love the little “XO” and heart details on top of the pies.

What a fabulous wedding!!!!!  The party lasted long into the night with loads of fun and dancing.  Thank you Julie & Chris from the bottom of my heart-  There is no where else I would have rather been, then with the two of  you as you started and celebrated your lives together.
