I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Perhaps the most unique aspect of Hannah and Tim’s beautiful wedding was that it was held at the bride’s family’s home—think Father of the Bride vibes!! The ceremony was held under an open air tent just yards from the house and Hannah and her wedding party began their walk down the aisle from inside her own family’s home. After the ceremony, guests walked down a hill to a beautiful lake and a custom tent installed in a clearing in the woods for a stunning white tent reception. Planning, event and floral design  and stationery by Rebecca Rose Events with calligraphy by Calligraphy by Carole  and it’s all captured beautifully in these images by Rylee Hitchner.


Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

The gown is by Sareh Nouri (Alessandra gown). I searched high and low (and tried on dozens of gowns) and finally discovered her at Nitsa’s, a boutique in my hometown. The owners of the store have known me and my family since I was in elementary school, so it was special that I found my dress there. One of the owners had pulled the dress with me in mind, and I instantly fell in love!

What was the most memorable part of the day? 

How can we pick just one moment? The entire day was incredible. But, if we have to pick one, the most memorable part of the day for us was the first look. Having a moment together to breathe and kiss and laugh (and maybe cry a little bit, too) was a great way to keep us grounded and focused on the purpose of the day — to marry the love of your life. It was just a tiny piece of “us time” to cherish.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We are complete homebodies, so a low-key engagement is our style. I was folding laundry and Tim asked me to come into the kitchen to help with dinner. He pulled the ring box down from a shelf and got down on one knee in the middle of our apartment. We celebrated with a dinner of tiramisu and champagne. I was in pajamas and our dear puppy was with us — it was perfect!
