We were recently contacted by a wonderful husband & wife photography team, Andrew and Marianne Nicodem of Nicodem Creative, who let us know that some of our Farm Mix Peonies were used in a wedding they’d shot and asked if we might like to use some of the photos. Of course we said yes, not only because Peonies are always a crowd-pleaser, but also because we always jump at the chance to get a peek at what our DIY couples have created with the flowers they ordered through us! (Not-so-subtle hint to all of our customers out there–please share some photos with us, we’d love to see your creations! We’ll love you forever! Okay, shameless plea over.) The Nicodems were also kind enough to share the blog post they wrote up about Amy & Brian’s wedding, which helps give some context for their beautiful photos. Scroll on for the whole story!
Brian + Amy: Wedding In Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
JUNE 26, 2015
One of our favorite things about wedding photography is quite simply the love stories we get to hear leading up to the big day. To hear brides-to-be and grooms-to-be detailing how they met, when they first knew, where the proposal took place, and to watch their excitement as they relive those memories of falling in love. And so when we received an inquiry for a wedding a few months ago from a couple from Seattle, I quickly scanned it looking for the beginning of their story. This is how it started:
“Our love story is simple, and true…”
The email went on, but those words stuck out to me, a quietly beautiful introduction to the love story of Brian and Amy. And when their wedding day finally arrived it really was simply, and truly, a wonderful occasion.
The couple got married at Amy’s childhood home just outside of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, a sprawling farm built in the 1800s set amidst rolling green hills and scattered stone buildings. Even when the rain began to fall, friends and family rolled back the doors of the big barn adjoining the property, swept the floors, threw down some hay and continued on, undeterred. There was no amount of weather that could keep it from being a beautiful day, and the images below are a glimpse of that simple and true love story that Brian and Amy are living.
Can you believe that’s her childhood home?! How perfectly picturesque! This also goes to show that sticking with just one type of flower for your wedding can look fabulously simple and elegant.
