here's to you mrs robertson

i love weddings. they are just gorgeous. how could such a celebration - such a grand gesture - be anything else? but, no doubt, there are some weddings that, by virtue of the people and by virtue of the styling, are more gorgeous than others.

it's all a matter of opinion, of course. and, in my opinion, saturday's wedding of scotty (too hotty) and shell was one of the most gorgeous i have ever seen.

scotty and shell have been together 11 years. i make that point for two reasons. one, it's true and two, i think, in an odd way, it is representative of our generation. a generation that will do things when they're ready, not when every one says they should be.

11 years has nothing to do with uncertainty because there's little in life more certain than the 'meant-to-be' status of scotty and shell. they are loved individually and as a couple by family and friends alike. it was such a pleasure to share saturday with them.

plus, s and s are both designers which means the day looked so damn good. a friend nikki said it perfectly: "such a beautiful wedding and so reflective of two beautiful people".

there were so many steal-worthy touches: the picture frame hanging from a tree branch (complete with polaroid camera, scrap book and pen); the bocce set on the lawn; the lanterns up above; the collection of frames scattered about inside, each housing an important moment in time; the giant white balloons floating over the cupcake display; blah, blah, blah...honestly, this list could go on and on.

it would be remiss of me to gloss over the speeches. every speech, but especially those of the mr and mrs themselves, comprised some of the most lovely, heart-felt words i've ever heard. there wasn't a dry eye in the house as scotty wrapped up with a few choice words about his beautiful bride. and she sure was beautiful.

i forgot my camera (because i am good like that) so here is a small collection of photos i have unashamedly stolen from friends.

and the deed is done!

two beautiful (and expecting) bridesmaids

one of countless memorable touches at the charming venue
a better look at the gorgeous dress, the gorgeous bride

our little message to the bride and groom
it starts with photo geek. it continues with 'shin kicker'.

where our nights always end up

congratulations scotty and shell on a beautiful day. i know i am not alone when i say i look so very forward to spending more wonderful (and stylish) moments with you both.

Oh my gosh. I LOVE the idea of the hanging frame and Polaroid camera. Too bad I'm already married (might steal it for my 30th though!)
