At the center of every wedding is an amazing couple who is blissfully in love! Laura + Doug are literally smack dab, dead center in today’s beautiful lakeside wedding snapped up by Johnny Vy Photography, and I am blissfully in love with this wedding! In every sense of the word, they were surrounded by the people and things that they love and cherish the most. Proving that a personalizing your wedding doesn’t necessarily require a lot of resources, just the always-around-you-forever-meaningful people and things that make you happy.
From the photographer:
In a world of commercialized weddings, Laura and Doug were a throwback to the old school way of doing things, and that’s what I love most about them. This wedding was full of personal touches, starting with location. Doug had grown up around the lake, and it was great to hear all the stories that were told by his father and groomsmen. It really made me realize how closely knit this entire group was, and it really showed. All the little details were not overlooked, and these two really took D.I.Y a step beyond the norm.
Johnny wasn’t exaggerating either. All of the centerpiece bottles were from Doug’s collection that he’s had since he was child. Laura and Doug personally grew the flowers that they used. And those cutie-pie pencils, well good thing Johnny Vy also carries a pocket knife along with his camera, since a couple of the guestbook pencils needed some sharpening throughout the day. Talk about going beyond the DIY call of duty. I’m kind of obsessing over the chicken wire seating chart with soda pop table names. I don’t know about you, but I think may have to make one of those just to hang pictures in my home now. See! Inspiration for your wedding and yo home, how cool!
Well, it’s for certain that Laura and Doug and the center of each other’s world, and Johnny Vy Photography did an amazing job of capturing that and every little detail central to this fantastic gallery. Thank you for sharing this wedding that’s sure to stay at the center of our hearts for a while, and congratulations Laura and Doug!
