On Green Wedding Shoes

Vitaliy and I are so thankful to see Becca and Orion’s wedding featured on Green Wedding Shoes this week. We owe a big thanks to Allison from Engaged and Inspired who designed the beautiful event for her sister. And to Sarah Seven for the whimsical dress Becca wore. Later this week, we’re going to share some of our favorite design elements, but first we want to focus on the happy couple.

At it’s core a wedding is really about two people in love, committing the rest of their lives to one another. Today we want to celebrate Becca and Orion. Their love. And their promise.

I was so happy to read in the GWS feature that Becca and Orion’s favorite memory from the day was their First Look. Her words are the perfect description of what we hope to give our couples during this special time of the wedding day. Here is what they shared:

“The most memorable part for us was the first look and the photo session we did. Everything was starting to stress us out so heading down the street to an empty field for the first look was exactly what we needed to get away from it all. After seeing each other for the first time, it felt like the wedding had actually begun. Taking photos was really fun and the setting was beautiful. It was bright with some occasional rain and we had fun playing around with it (and I loved wearing my rain boots for it).”

Congratulations Becca and Orion! We are so excited for you! We want to wish you a lifetime of love and laughter as husband and wife. Have fun growing old together! Our one piece of advice – no matter how crazy life gets, always find time to spend just the two of you.

xoxo – V & C
