Here’s another throwback post for you – this couple will be celebrating their 2nd anniversary in just a few weeks!!
Holly and Dan found us through A Practical Wedding. They were living in San Francisco and planning a wedding in Indianapolis, and wisely decided to get some help pulling everything together!
So, we harnessed the power of the internet for video chats and many emails, added a few phone calls for good measure, and then made the quick drive down to Indianapolis for their wedding weekend! (Yes – we travel!)
Speaking of details, there are so many from this wedding that I’d like to share with you…
This is Holly’s grandmother’s house. It is unbelievably beautiful. Of course they leapt at the opportunity to use it at the backdrop for their wedding! Aside from its obvious charm, this house is a place where the two of them had spent many, many days together so it holds a special place in their hearts.
They decided to fully embrace the era of the home, using vintage colored glass goblets at their place settings and retro cotton prints for the napkins and table linens. Each table had a different print, and Holly sewed all of the linens herself.
And my favorite thing? The seating assignments! Holly made magnets using the same fabrics as the tablecloths and napkins and used them to hold up polaroids of each guest; they found their table by matching the magnet to the tablecloth. What fun!
After a lovely ceremony in the side yard, everyone moved through the historic home for cocktail hour, and then into a tent in the backyard for the reception. Though they’d loaded an iPod with music for the night, it ended up mostly collecting dust – Holly’s Uncle and his band were expected to play for an hour or two, but they honored the crowd’s request to go all night long!
Congratulations and Happy Anniversary, Holly & Dan!
