Emily + Eric: 10.26.13

{We’re showing off our gorgeous weddings from the last two years in anticipation of our 10th anniversary on February 24 and we’re doubling up today!  Too many beautiful weddings to share!}

I’ve known Emily for several years – she was the maid of honor in her sister Megan’s wedding back in 2011.  Emily is also Allison’s sorority sister – Columbus is such a small town!  Anyway, I was thrilled to hear from Emily when Eric proposed!  I knew when I first met him that these two are perfectly suited for each other – they’re both old souls but belong in a Disney fairy tale.  Those who know them, know exactly what I mean!

Emily and Eric wanted a soft, vintage feel with vintage books, beautiful flowers, and lace touches.  I’d say we accomplished the look they were going for – it was simply lovely!  This was also another purple wedding – 2013 was a big year for purple and I loved all the different shades we did it in throughout the year!  Emily chose a deep royal purple that went so well at the Athletic Club with all the gold and crystal.

We all got a sweet surprise with the guestbook!  Emily and Eric chose a coffee table book of Columbus history and during set up, I wondered if the Athletic Club’s building was in it – the club just celebrated its Centennial so it stood to reason the building might be pictured.  A little hunting and we found a picture of the building from the 30s or 40s in the pages.  Perfectly apropos for this vintage wedding!

Emily and Eric took dance lessons and their first dance was choreographed perfectly!  Look for the twirling dress and dip pictures – not the easiest thing to accomplish!

I’m sad I won’t get to do another wedding with this family (no more daughters left!) but am so happy to have been a part of both Megan and Emily’s weddings!

Thanks to Cassidy Dawn Photography for the pictures!
