Real Weddings: Lydia & Andrew

Gently tying in many exquisite personal touches, Lydia and Andrew were married at Benmaryl Winery in Marlboro, New York. As Andrew is a wedding photographer himself, it's no wonder that their pictures were nothing less than gorgeous!

When Lydia found out that Andrew's last name meant "House of Wood", it was the perfect launch into a rustic chic decor. They used wooden logs in centerpieces and to label the table names from specific trees, not to mention this original cupcake stand.

One of Lydia's favorite moments was their "first look". They were nervous about seeing each other, but as soon as they did, all of their anxieties fell away. Lydia also cherished having her sister and maid of honor there to hold her train and witness the moment with them.

Andrew's grandmother had recently passed away, so Lydia chose to wear her light pink vintage shoes to remember her and be the "something old". She also wore vintage earrings from her aunt that had been in the family for years. They happened to have an aquamarine stone, hence her "something borrowed and blue".

The bridesmaid wore After Six Style 6666 in Celadon.

"I went back and forth a lot trying to please opinions and body types, but at the end of the day you just have to make an executive decision. This dress I chose from Joielle was PERFECT. I ordered it sight unseen from the website and the girls looked fabulous - the color was perfect, it complimented every body type and I couldn't have asked for more. Simple, elegant, classic."

Congrats Andrew and Lydia! May all this beauty and joy continue to thrive in your future together!
