Everything about this wedding was modern. I think Ralee and Erik are trend setters of some kind. :) One thing I love is when a couple chooses a theme for their day: Theirs' was "Country Mouse Meets City Mouse." I thought their modern ideas mixed with their vintage flair blended in perfectly to reflect this idea. One of their many ideas that I loved was that they both got ready together. There was no bridal party, so rather than be in isolation the whole morning, they got their hair done together in the same room. They were both so relaxed and had so much fun while doing it! And not to mention Erik's hair turned out pretty rad. I've never see anything like it before. They got dressed separately so it could be a surprise to see each other in their wedding attire. When I was taking a photo of the dress on the hanger, Erik walked in and I almost had a heart-attack because he saw the dress! They both quickly informed me that they don't care and that he had been seeing it all morning long! It's pretty awesome when a couple decides to do things a little differently. They were not one bit afraid to deviate from the norm and incorporate their personalities into their wedding freely and unapologetically. For the photos they brought some props that they love and could have fun with. Their were many other little details that I thought were very modern (suit instead of a tux, chandelier earrings and no necklace, orange tie, white gloves, matching gold bands from Tiffany's without a diamond - just to name a few! Erik made a beautiful chuppah out of cherry wood and unfortunately it rained for their ceremony but it was still beautiful and intimate. So I'll let you get on with the photos now!
Ralee and Erik, Thanks for choosing me! Cheers!
