Wow wow wow – has it really been a YEAR since our wedding day?
Yes, yes it has been one fulllll freakin’ year! Which makes me feel even more guilty that in that entire year since that day, I have yet to post ANY pictures or write ANY blog posts about it…until today. I also have yet to get our wedding book created – you know, the wedding book that always dreamed of creating someday when I was little and looked through my parent’s wedding book? Yep, that one. Still just an imaginary thought at this point, although I did make some progress this weekend and started a “folder with the best options for the wedding book” iPhoto folder. From that stack of 200+ photos, I will somehow narrow it down to 40. Or is it 50 photos? Lord knows I have no idea where that original photography contract is!
Fortunately for me, my blog can serve as a pseudo wedding book until I actually get my shizz together. :)
Oh oh oh anndddddd so can Buffalo Wedding magazine, which featured our wedding in this month’s issue! Click here to view the digital version – I am planning on posting the PDF scans as soon as I get my hands on a zillion copies. A hugeeee thank you to the RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING Sara Heidinger Photography, who captured all the big – and little – moments of our special day so beautifully.
As I have mentioned over and over again on this blog, I have come to accept myself as an old farmer soul. I can’t get enough of big red barns, old wooden crates, spans of orchard as far as the eye can see, homemade rustic cooking…and don’t EVEN get me started on burlap, twine and yes, mason jars. Gah my heart melts. So naturally, I wanted a big barn wedding. Only problem was, I had no idea where I could make that happen in Buffalo, NY. Turns out the answer was more obvious than meatballs in my Ma’s sauce – of course, Becker Farms/Vizcarra Vineyards!
My favorite childhood retreat became the perfect backdrop for our dream wedding day. We filled it with so much love, so many mason jars and as many loved ones as we could possibly squeeze in. Set the tune to some serious 90s dance music and throw in some broken trolleys, locally brewed beer, barefoot vineyards runs, a photo booth and of course, all sorts of Italian cookies, and it was honestly the most special 24 hours of my life. Here are some (okay a LOT) of the highlights – sorry, I went a little collage happy!
Whew….I wish we could re-live that day a zillion times over! Thank you to all of our family and friends for making our day so lovely, wonderful, crazy, hilarious and simply perfect. :)
