K & R's Wedding: Part 1

K and R got married on a gorgeous day at The Kaaterskill in upstate New York. Every last detail was so beautifully planned and executed. This truly was a DIY wedding, and all of K and R's friends and family helped out. The ceremony was incredibly unique and reflected them so well as a couple. And the reception was full of fun and surprises.

There were so many amazing details planned, that I had to break this down into two posts! This first post includes photos from the wedding party getting ready through their ceremony. Post #2 highlights the fabulous reception.

The Chuppah included 36 vases of alstroemerias for the "36 righteous ones" in Judaism and the canopy was made out of K's mother's wedding dress.
They cut vintage ribbon and asks guests to write a blessing and tie it to the chuppah before the ceremony (seven of which were read at the end of the ceremony). 
Vintage handkerchiefs were collected off Ebay and silkscreened with K and R's initials and wedding date. Each guest got to take one home.
The flower girl tossed a coin to see if R or K would walk down the aisle first!
During the ceremony, the couple wore rosemary remembrance wreaths during the ceremony made from rosemary from K's Grandmother's garden. 
K's wedding band belonged to her grandmother, and R's wedding band was her father's.
The next post will be filled with all the photos of their fabulous wedding reception!
