Our Constellation Wedding

Brad and I were married one year ago, on September 6, 2009. We loved planning our wedding together- which may be why we love being a part of other people's weddings! It's such a special time of excitement and anticipation - we can't help but enjoy it!

Our wedding took place in Sarasota, Florida at the historic Powel Crosley Estate. Our photos were taken by the fabulous duo of Mandy & Me, our flowers were artfully arranged by Sarasota Enchanted Flowers, and our lovely and scrumptious cupcakes were by the Wired Whisk Bakehouse.

These are a few of our favorite wedding details.

Tequila provided by my hooligan uncles, our flower arrangements (all were in different vintage milk glass vases), and homemade white chocolate snack mix made by Brad's mom!

Table settings lovingly set by family members before the wedding - my parents own an equipment rental business, Punta Gorda Rent-All, and the whole family came together to get the mansion ready. It's one of my favorite memories from that day, seeing everyone together in one place, working for a common goal. I felt (and feel) very loved.

Our first dance - Little Trips to Heaven by Tom Waits

I don't need to take no trip to outer space All I have to do is look at your face And before I know it I'm in orbit around you I thank my lucky stars that I found you When I see your constellation, you're my inspiration And it's you...
