Our wedding was more beautiful and special than we ever could have imagined -- partly due to luck & perfect weather, and partly due to our incredibly talented friends and family without whom this event would never have been so bleeding PERFECT! And I use the term perfect loosely. I was definitely stringing together the escort card chart an hour before photos with the help of a team of slightly hung-over (but still gorgeous) bridesmaids.  But I wouldn't have it any other way. Special thanks to our friend Chelsea Wakstein who catered our rehearsal dinner like a boss! And to Stephen Ockham who brewed us a big keg of gluten free Imperial Ale, which ruled hard.
