purple and green wedding details

Zack & Lillian described the idea of their wedding to me last year at their engagement session and I was immediately hooked!! They had the SWEETEST celebration at the home of her parents friends with the prettiest reception in the yard. I’ve known Lillian for years (I did her senior photos!!) & it was truly the perfect embodiment of her ideal wedding day. From her untraditional wedding dress to the dogs of honor (there were 4 dogs in the wedding party, YOU GUYS) to the homemade floral hoops, it was the perfect day. Her mom catered it (she’s my favorite caterer in the the history of ever), and everyone pitched in to make it their dream wedding. Watching Lillian & her mom dance down the aisle to James Taylor’s “How Sweet it is” made me SO happy because in the end, your wedding day needs to be about you – and if that means you and your mom dance hand in hand down the aisle, then that’s what needs to happen. Despite the bugs (we decided we’d take the bugs over the blizzard at their engagement session), Zack and Lillian had the perfect wedding day, topped off by a giant cocktail hour/reception that lasted WELL into the night. You’re going to LOVE how their reception was set up – it was so great to see everyone mingling together the whole night, playing basketball, dancing, laying with the dogs & playing lawn games. Honestly, I wish more of my weddings were like this ????. Congratulations, Zack & Lillian!! I’m so happy that I was able to capture your wedding day & celebrate your love!!
