Seeing as how I have had a few things going on this year (a budding partnership with It’s Your Day Catering, many weddings, holidays, football, etc.), I have let my blogging of gorgeous weddings fall to the wayside. This is bad. So, I’m making up for lost time. Today, I give you Nancy and Marcelo’s perfect wedding on May 1st at the Arboretum at Auburn University. This has to be one of the sweetest weddings I’ve ever had the honor to be a part of. Totally in love couple, small intimate gathering, perfect spring weather. Just lovely.
Here’s the backstory. Nancy and Marcelo were legally already married. They had met in Spain and moved back to the States. Marcelo, a native of Paraguay, couldn’t stay in the States without being married to Nancy. So, they had a simple courthouse wedding. But, they wanted to share their wedding with their family living in the United States, so an intimate affair was planned. While a true southern wedding is one of the best things ever, it is always refreshing to me to work with a couple that has experiences and another culture to bring to the mix. Nancy and Marcelo had this in spades. Their only wish for their wedding was that everything that was planned didn’t overshadow the reason for the celebration – their love for each other and their desire to share this with their closest friends and family.
I give you a few of the beautiful shots that photographer Tristan Cairns took. He captured their personality perfectly. Ceremony site was held at the Auburn University Arboretum and the Auburn University Hotel and Conference Center provided the perfect reception spot. Florist Jess Margeson of Frou Fou added to the spring feel of the wedding with the cream and peach flowers and cake maker extraordinaire Robin Fowler made a lovely and delicious cake that incorporated the invitation design. Many thanks to graphic designer Lisa Mosow for the custom invitations that were commissioned at the last minute. Her design helped set the tone for the rest of the wedding design.
Now, on to the photos!
