Erin and Devin had an absolutely incredible wedding on Saturday at Abe & Jake’s Landing in Lawrence, Kansas. If I were to describe their entire day in one word, I would have to say organic.
From the florals to the feeling, everything about their day was organic. When I first talked to Erin about their day, she started talking about how important the flower arrangements would be. A lot of brides love flowers, but I didn’t put together how much the florals really meant until I saw ALL the arrangements. The bouquets were hand grown by neighbors and family members. The flowers were planted, picked, and arranged by family. So much work went into the florals that we couldn’t help but all get teary-eyed when Erin talked about her grandmother, whose garden served as inspiration for the whole organic concept.
On top of the beautiful decor, I need to take a moment to discuss the incredible father/daughter dance. Why slow dance when you can jam out to “Forever” by Chris Brown. Erin brought her entire family out for this choreographed dance. Seriously, I have never seen a better milestone dance.
Thanks so much for having me Erin and Devin!!! Special thanks to Devin for tolerating picture taking despite his strong hatred toward it 🙂 Here’s your full preview!!!
