jenee + chris {part 1}

my husband's best buddy married the girl of his dreams a few months back and all i can say is wow.  the bride was absolutely beautiful and the details of the wedding were jaw-dropping. i'm showing this one in two parts because between the craftyness of the bride and all the amazing pics, there is just so much to share!
the wedding and reception were at mcmenamins road house, inside the rustic barn.
so many fabulous details...all hand-made by the bride and groom...including the coolest ladder ball game ever.
and lots and lots of gorgeous flowers!!! it was so much fun working with such beauties!
so much loveliness... part 2 here: the wedding, reception and photobooth!!
