Regency-Themed Wedding for Laura and Evan

Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice  Mansfield Park, Emma -- these works of Jane Austen -- plus the clothing of her era inspired this lovely wedding.

I watched as Laura had her hair done.  Minute by minute she moved from this decade back in time.  Then, she and Evan left to get dressed.


The procession began with Laura's niece, dressed in an adorable matching outfit was adorable!

Then, Laura and Evan emerged.  Fantastic! 

The wedding was an intimate occasion of family and the closest of friends.  It was held at the Angle Lake home of Laura's mother.  The bride and groom wished to marry near the lake but rain moved things indoors.

Even so, the setting was cozy and completely fitting.

It was a joy to be included in the ceremony, which was a blend of contemporary and history. 

The ring pillow made for Laura's grandfather while he was recovering from a war injury in Europe.  His nurse created this for him ... and it is a treasured family heirloom.


Laura and Evan adapted a version of the "seven blessings" into their wording and had a beautiful document created as a keepsake.

Here is one of them:

May we be best friends and work together to build a relationship of substance and quality. May our sense of humor and playful spirit continue to enliven our relationship.  May we respect each other’s individual personality and perspective, and give each other room to grow in fulfilling our dreams. 

Afterwards, all gathered round the table to feast and celebrate Evan and Laura's good fortune.

In the words of Miss Austin, do not you think the two deserve to enjoy a terrific, dear time together! 

Many thanks to Wallflower Photography for these wonderful images.
