The only reason this is okay to add in with this blog post is because Alex and Erin Shimkus are awesome, and were just as obsessed with the royal wedding as anyone, despite that it was their own wedding day!

But on a serious note, Alex and Erin held their wedding ceremony and wedding reception here last Saturday, and while we had to constantly check our radars leading up to the outdoor ceremony, the weather held out and turned into a gorgeous day for this awesome couple. 

This wedding was beautifully decorated with simplicity and personal touches. This couple went with a color pallet of white, greens and gold. Erin and her friends and family created all of the floral arrangements for the tables and for the bridesmaids bouquets. Erin's mother and her mother's friend showed off their basket weaving talents by creating beautiful baskets that decorated the aisle/behind the head table, as well as for their card box. As their friends and family gathered for their ceremony, each took a little flag with ribbon tied to it. On one side it said "Always + Forever," and on the other side was their programs. We loved this couple's unique ideas almost as much as we loved working with them. Congrats to this happy couple! Check out more shots from their big day below:
