We have a tale as old as time. A tale that stems from Romeo and Juliet and the writings of Shakespeare. A tale that starts with a double tap. We met on Instagram, purely by accident. Kimber found me (Sophie) on the popular page and started liking my pictures, which sparked my interest so I liked hers back, and nearly 5 years later, here we are, married, and moms to 3 dogs.
Kimber found her dress from David’s Bridal and was drawn to the style because of its versatility. It had a short crop top overlay that easily could be pulled off to be a strapless dress. It also had a vintage farmhouse feel that fit the theme of our wedding. I (Sophie) found my dress at a boutique called Kinsley James in LA. I loved the off the shoulder look, and the delicate lace detail. I wanted something that would compliment not only me, but our venue and vision.
Flowers were done by the incredible team at Grayce Floral! They transformed the entire venue into our dream. Food was Top Tier Catering who made a special exception to do our wedding as they only take on 2-3 weddings per year. We had filet for the meat eaters and eggplant and quinoa for the vegetarians. Our sister in law baked our cake and knocked it out of the park. And, how could we forget our incredible photographer who captured every precious moment between us?
Gurss Barn for rehearsal, ceremony & reception! The Gurss barn holds a special place in our hearts- it’s the place where Kimber grew up, where we really looked at each other and said “she’s the one.”
Our ceremony was very special. Our officiant was a longtime family friend who knew Sophie’s grandparents, who passed away a few years ago. We felt them there as we promised our love to one another. We also wrote our own vows which was a really beautiful process.
The party. was. epic. Tammy from DJ to the Max was our DJ and she kept the party going all night. From the cha cha slide, to friends in low places, us, our friends, & our family were singing at the top of our lungs, arm in arm, having the best time.
We couldn’t have asked for anything more from Sara. She kept us calm when it was pouring rain outside just before our first look, she directed us perfectly while letting our personalities and love be the star of each photo, she was thoughtful, invested and determined. She is wonderful.
