hahahahahahaa, whhhhhhhhhhhat!?!?!? OK, I already picked the photographs for this post and it’ll be the largest wedding post we’ve ever done. Large to the point of overkill. AND I DON’T CARE!! This wedding…was….EPIC. You’re seated, right? Good call. Let me tell you a lil story..
Jenny is from Mass and Trevor is from VT and they met out in Las Vegas. He’s a lighting guy for big touring musicals, she’s a costume designer in Vegas. Anyway, they met 7 years ago and the rest, as far as I can tell, has been a life full of creativity, laughter, friendship, adventure, support, and love. These people rock. They chose Plymouth State Park as a wedding venue because it was roughly halfway between his home town and hers. And because they both grew up being creative (Jenny had no cable tv as a kid, just a crafts closet and the outdoors) and outdoorsy (he’s a woodsman from Vermont).
All their super creative, stage managing, stage-hand type folk all got their asses out to New England and, if only for a weekend, we were all much cooler and more creative for their efforts.
Every single thing in this wedding was hand made. Most remarkably Jenny made her dress. Every piece of lace, every removable part, every. single. bead. (!!!). Her mom made the ‘YAY’ signs, they made their wedding logo (a spool of thread to symbolize her gifts, a lightening rod for his). The tables were decorated with fun table conversation games and random photographs of the couple living their lives together over the years. Their friend who is an amaaaaazing stage manager officiated and guests sat on picnic tables as they watched the Bubble Girl (instead of a flower girl) giggle down the aisle.
The whole style of the wedding is known as Steam Punk which may be new to people around New England, but you can look it up and you should reeeeeeally try to get to Burning Man one of these years. If you do, you’ll know Steam Punk inside and out, you’ll be wearing a top hat before you can ask ‘where’s my monocle?’ Jenny’s dress was designed to be disassembled so every time I turned around she looked hotter and hotter. Her red hat (that she wore later in the evening) was designed by her hat-making idol Philip Treacy (who did a lot of the hats for the royal wedding last year).
Anyway… that’s PLENTY for an introduction. Now it’s up to you to fall in love. Seriously.
Jenny and Trevor, you know the deal. Your wedding was a highlight of our careers and it was an honor to be trusted by you. Shit, if you guys like us we must not suck THAT bad.
thank you again. love.
