By Invitation Only: A June wedding...

Posted June 05, 2012 by Christina


I am sure every bride would say that there are things they would have changed about their wedding.  There are so many ways I would have done things differently!  

I was young and pretty simple at the time...

So here is my now wedding if I was to do it again...

gorgeous hand done invitations are a must and I would love to have a wedding in Paris of course... but maybe some where a little bit more quaint more sheltered out in the French countryside ...
 Amazing hand made maps to send the guests straight to us.

Always appetizers and cocktails.. Maybe even break tradition and start before the ceremony just to loosen up the crowd..

Beautiful places to sit make conversation and relax..


A simply beautiful dress..

 Relaxed gorgeous hair..


 A little color with peonies..


Out door seating with candle light.... a small party for close friends only.. not everyone we have ever met!

 An amazing cake..  cake is one of the best parts!


And more than anything I would remember to have fun..


Sweets for each guest along with beautiful delicious food. Maybe I could convince Eddy Rocq to come to France to cater for me?

Its the details of our lives I think that in some respects make the impact. Its only once in a while the big picture matters. I loves these photos of the details.

Beautiful images and about the only thing I would change about my wedding is my dress. Hated that thing!

I think it’s a common theme running through this theme today…everyone would make it more casual, almost everyone would have it outside. I am so happy to see your dream dress, Christina, & I must say it’s not too simple at all. Thank you for always being a part of “By Invitation Only” my special baby. Each one of you add your own dimension to this special group of women. Facets. Kinda like diamonds aren’t they? xx’s

I love the part of how it’s a party for only close friends, not everyone you’ve ever met! Amen.
Love the wedding in your mind, and the photo of bride and groom on the ground. :)
