Lizzy and Roy love three things (well, four if you include each other): nature, deer and the movies. “We knew from the very start we wanted to have a wedding that reflected us”, says Elizabeth who therefore went ahead and decorated their reception with moss covered centrepieces, plastic deer toys and a popcorn bar with all different kinds of seasonings.
Their DIY affair, held at a beautiful private property in Maine, USA was captured by photographers Nate and Amanda of The Shalom Imaginative – although we doubt it’s a day this pair will easily forget. “The entire day was so memorable for me, from getting ready earlier in the day, to officially becoming husband and wife, to running through the woods hand in hand with Roy, to dancing under an open sky with such special people it was the most magical day of my life”, says Elizabeth who wore a romantic, strapless gown that she spotted on Pinterest by Australia’s very own Anna Campbell and hair piece by Twigs & Honey. “The minute I tried the dress on, I knew it was meant to be!” says Elizabeth whose husband discovered the phenomenon that is Etsy while searching for a bow tie.
Overall their day was a huge success thanks to a team of talented vendors including Amy’s Flowers, Minted and their celebrant Tim (who also happens to be Jeremy’s brother). But most importantly, it was Elizabeth and Jeremy’s awesome attitude that got them across the line. “…it is important to always remember what the day is truly about”, says Elizabeth who thinks H. Jackson Brown Jr. perfectly summed up what marriage means when he wrote, “remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care that they get.”
