Prepping for Kim & Nick's wedding

All bias aside, Kim & Nick's wedding was by far the most beautiful, thoughtful, and fun wedding I've ever been to! To think she planned it almost entirely from Australia is amazing. I took several photos of the prep-work leading up to the ceremony, and then left my camera in the hotel room to have a great time. So enjoy the details shots below, because I left the rest to the professional photographers.

I can't remember the story that caused this reaction, but I think we were grilling the hair and makeup artist on whether she had ever had any bridezilla clients or not.

Jordan Temple made all of us beautiful, she really is amazing!

I loved the light that slipped through the blinds as Kim prepped her veil and snapped a few shots.

Kim's bouquet : something borrowed, plus something blue.

The invitation I designed and the photo I took just the night before at the rehearsal dinner. They never had time to take any formal engagement pictures while they were in town. Of course I was saddened by this.

A closeup of the final monogram on the water bottle favors and the invitation. See the other monogram designs I designed here.

Kim told me that, as part of her "Urban Garden Party" theme, the florist would have tree limbs for the seating cards to hang from. I thought it would be a great idea to make them into a dainty shape. I am so grateful my coworkers helped me cut them out to execute my vision!
