most people know me as elizabeth messina….but in my personal life, i am mrs moore….and today is our wedding anniversary….so i thought i’d share some of our personal weddings photos….both the beautiful images taken by thayer & some of the ones i took throughout the day….celebrate with us…
our day was so amazing….breathtaking & lovely….i collected the chandeliers that hung above our table for more than a year (many of them now hang in our home)…lisa vorce was just incredible….she planned & executed every detail….she literally made our dreams come true….everything was wonderful…from the stunning florals by mindy rice to my couture gown created by kirstie kelly….our entire wedding was also beautifully filmed by paul korver of fifty foot films…we were so blessed…
we also incorporated some very personal & sweet details…i wore my grandmother’s shrug & had her pendant sewn onto my bouquet…we also had poilane wedding bread flown in from paris, this was certainly the most decadent detail…the round loaves had our names & wedding date baked into them….we also enjoyed the richest most scrumptious chocolate truffles made by jessica foster….xoxo
our delicious cake was created by christine dahl & the crown on top of the cake has become a big part of my photography, i use it for my crown portraits all the time….kirstie kelly also made my girls’ dresses & the boys’ ties…and my veil which had the most amazing handmade french lace sewn on the edge….there is something about france, always beckoning me…..and then there was our kiss…..
kiss & tell
“there we were, in front of our friends & family & yet somehow alone…just us..i remember looking at him for what seemed like an enternity…his face was so serene, so kind…i felt so happy & a little shy…he said his vows with his deep soothing voice…mine felt like a whisper…husband & wife…and when we kissed, i knew what i had always known…i was home”
these were the candy bars i made, wrapped in photographs from our life…i love how thayer allyson gowdy lined them up & captured them…and she was very patient while i took some of my own….
here are some of the behind the scenes images i took on our wedding day
thank you to all who helped make our day so wonderful…xoxo
