A March handfasting wedding

What can I say? I love J&L, and I love the way they celebrated their marriage - in their backyard, with a beautiful hand fasting ceremony followed by a festive meal with loved ones. Not only do these guys know how to keep things simple and host a good party, they know how to make use of their own and friends and family's ample talents to do it with style. (Jen is one half of the totally awesome Shipwright and Co. and Jen's sister Emma renders everything she touches beautiful). They also gave me free reign to do whatever I wanted with the flowers, which always makes me feel like I can do my very best work. Add gorgeous food from one of J&L's favorite restaurants, Zuzu, and you have one of my favorite weddings, ever.
