Weddings to Celebrate: Carrie & James

Carrie's BFF gave a toast during which she said, "On a day that is supposed to be all about Carrie, she made it all about us."  That sums Carrie & James' wedding up perfectly.  It was extraordinary. (If you know Carrie & James, you know that's par for the course.  Nothing about them is common or ordinary.)  Here is some eye candy from Akil Bennett Photography (he is fabbo!).


You only have to read the invitation to see these two are out-of-the-box thinkers. :-)

Carrie wanted a bouquet that was just "thrown together."  

Carrie and her adorable mother.  I puffy heart both of these women.

Yep...those are exposed wires and flowers just "thrown" around.  And was on purpose.  :-)

Along with a jazz trio for the ceremony, they had a poet read a custom poem for them right before Carrie walked down the aisle.

The food at this wedding was outrageous.  No one went away hungry.  But, just in case they *might* have .. there were late night snacks and full to-go boxes :-)

Cast of Vendors.  Brace yourself:  I think this was a record.  And they were all fabulous.
