a girl after my own heart, boho, forest, details and a kind of love that you only find in fairytales! sorry I’m not sorry, this is a loooong post! enjoy!
Love story from cory:
Justin and I went to high school together. He was best friends with Jacob and Gabe (best men), and I was best friends with Angela and Bethany (maids of honor). Little did any of us know that God had an amazing plan where 10 years later, we would all be married to each other.
He was the hottest, most popular guy in school (biased? maybe). He was also very taken. I was the skater-goth-wannabe obsessed with Tim Burton, the kid who read Edgar Allen Poe to her friends in study hall. If you had told me back then that we would’ve been here today, I would’ve either laughed or cried… basically, I would be literally incredulous.
We re-met when Bethany (maid of honor) kept trying to force us to hang out so I invited him to my 21st birthday party.
Long story short, all it took was that nagging, a few too many whiskey sours, and as best said by F Scott Fitzegerald, we “slipped briskly into an intimacy from which (we) never recovered.”and i saw a pic that miss cory posted on Facebook with her brothers for a tbt (throw back thursday) … so i had to try and recreate it! From the bride: justin and I wanted a wedding that was unique to us, and that’s exactly how it turned out! I love bohemian, ‘Free People’ decor, and he loves the natural beauty of the woods. We were inspired by the Wes Anderson film ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ to build a sort of fairyland in the woods where people would want to live forever. Everyone chipped in to help, from the Father of the Groom buying all the tee pee’s, the moms going to estate sales every weekend for 6 months, the best man putting up the outstanding lights, the maid of honor providing hundreds of moroccan lanterns, to weeks of what we called ‘wine & wedding craft nights’ we put together the wedding of our dreams!
