Real Wedding: Trisha & Kevin
Say hello to our beautiful couple...Trisha & Kevin....how cute are they and their "Love Is All You Need" theme wedding is just too cute and it looks as though they had a serious party going on....I love it!  Capturing their special day is the husband and wife team, Joel and Cara Flory of Flory PhotoI adore Joel and Cara...their work is ALWAYS gorgeous and they are truly a beautiful couple...inside and out...let's check out all the magic made on Trisha & Kevin's special day....Enjoy!


Kevin, our groom, share a little info withus....."Our wedding was a ridiculous amount of fun.  Our goal was to have a really good time with the people we love with the right mix of significant and silly...and do it all without spending too much money.  And we wanted to invite a lot of people.  From the beginning, we decided that we wanted our wedding to be intimate, playful, artistic, and centered around our beliefs.  We knew that hosting a wedding for 400ish people was no easy job...especially a backyard wedding.  

So rather than obsess over every tiny detail, we focused on a few elements that meant a lot to us and tried to make those moments perfect.  First was the ceremony.  It was simple, beautiful, and a picture of love, family, and faith.  Trisha is a singer-songwriter, so naturally a lot of the most important parts of the wedding revolved around music.  The ceremony included original compositions by the bride, The Beatles, sacred hymns, Radiohead...etc.  

Next was the reception. The theme of the wedding was "All you need is love," so we tried to strip away some of the elements of traditional weddings that didn't mean much to us, and pay extra attention the parts that screamed "love!"  For us that meant a sing-along first dance, some fall-out-of-your-chair hilarious speeches by our siblings, and a surprise performance by Trisha.  It was a medley of "Yellow," by Coldplay, and "The Luckiest," by Ben Folds with simple vocals and piano.  It was absolutely perfect. As far as the dance party goes, we knew that this was our one opportunity to dance with all of the people we love in one place...at the same time.  The dance party was absolutely epic. It was about 150 people crammed into a space meant for about 40. There was crowdsurfing, breakdancing, glow-sticks, and a whole lot of sweating. This is the part of our wedding that people keep talking to us about. We danced in a pit of sorts, so even the non-dancers of the party (grandma) could watch, laugh, and take pictures as we lost our minds to Ratatat, Rihanna, and some amazing mixes our DJ Mark Spitz put together. 

 So after an hour and a half of intense dancing, the hundred or so brave souls that stuck it out to the end formed a tunnel that ran to my in-laws' suburban.  All in all, it was a perfect night.  We wouldn't have changed anything.  And, amazingly, our photographers were able to capture both the beauty and spirit of our huge, backyard wedding."
