A chuppah draped with foliage, a three-tiered buttercream cake topped with fresh flowers, a country barn venue – these are just some of the reasons we wish we’d been at Sandra and Matt’s rustic big day.
The whole wedding was a visual dream, with pops of bright, spring colors against dark, earthy backdrops, at a venue with special meaning to the couple.
Despite dramatic weather, Sandra and Matt soldiered on, even making the rain a feature of their wedding, with the bridesmaids in adorable rain boots (or wellies, for the Brits!).
The beautiful photography below was provided by Don Mears Photography , so we’ll let you go and gawp at it now. Enjoy Sandra and Matt’s big day story (we adore the tale of their first meeting – it’s like something out of a movie!)
How we met
Matt, the groom: Our relationship started as so many do: with Bill Clinton. Freezing in line to see the former President stump for Hillary in the 2008 primaries, I started making fun of Sandra for being short, the surest way to any girl’s heart.
Sandra, the bride: I knew I was in trouble when I bumped into him later that night. I was at a party Matt had invited my friends and me to at his fraternity, and had gone up to the bar to grab a drink. Lo and behold, Matt turned around to serve me. He smiled, and I was smitten.
