I LOVE (love love) that Ali + Matt had a theme without being too “theme-y.” Since Matt travels for work during the week, they wanted to bring a feeling of “house and home” to their whole celebration, and I think they did it in a really unique way — incorporating tea kettles and keys into their decor, hanging fabric wreaths on the door, placing family photos on the mantle, and giving each guest a napkin hand-embroidered by Ali’s Mom (yes, all 100!!). Ali herself pitched in with the paper goods — all self-designed, and printed by Mirabel Press. The Frogtown Winery was truly transformed into a home away from home, from the looks of it. The mini cake came courtesy of a dear friend, while the pie bar was baked by Razzle Dazzle Bakery. Guests took home mini jars of jam (made from wine — how appropriate!) from Emily G’s Jam of Love. And the lovely photographs that recorded this most special day? That was all Jill Thomas.

For even more details from Ali + Matt’s wedding, pick up a copy of V3!

Ali (a photographer herself), Matt, and their families and friends really put together something special for their big day. A few of the most darling details? The vintage quilts, collected by a friend, for guest seating at the ceremony; the groom’s custom cufflinks from Beads in the Belfry; Ali’s oh-so-chic shade of coral red lipstick and Matt’s Thomas Pink tie that somehow matches it perfectly; and Ali’s birdcage veil from Fascinating Creations. Dear friends designed + coordinated the celebration, put together the flowers, and took care of hair and makeup (Dawn Gahan, Courtney Garvin, and Laura Goddard, respectively), but the photographs were left up to a true professional: Jill Thomas. Check back soon for more from the reception!

Bonus! Check out Ali’s posts here + here for a few more behind-the-scenes details!

    Just in case the bride ever looks at these comments:

    I’m bought the same shoes for my wedding in August! Were they comfortable?

    Hi Krystina! Well… I had a little bit of trouble with these shoes, simply because I’m only 5 feet tall and the shoes added another 3 1/2 inches! I’m just not really used to being up that high, nor were my ankles! ;) So, when it was time for dancing, I switched to a lower 2 1/2 inch heel that still worked with my dress and allowed me to dance freely, without worry (or stumbling)! Also, they weren’t the best shoes for walking in a vineyard – they sank about an inch into the ground! Whoops. Here’s the proof: http://aliharperphotography.com/blog/2010/05/27/very-loved/
    But as you can see, they were very loved!
