Laura + Connor are high school sweethearts. Many years, a few different cities…and continents…a bi-coastal relationship plus endless dinners and food experiments (Laura is a talented food blogger! You should absolutely take a look at her blog, Blogging Over Thyme), these two finally tied the knot. I had the pleasure of first meeting the couple back at the wedding of Laura’s sister, Pippa and her husband Brian, a few years ago. I immediately fell in love with the sweet family, their big hearts and their knack for entertaining speeches. I couldn’t contain my excitement when Laura reached out to tell me that it was time for her and Connor’s big day and that of course, they wanted me to be a part of the festivities. In fact, Laura assembled a pretty amazing team of vendors, many of whom had been at her sister’s wedding…I also got to meet the newest member of the extended family…Pippa and Brian’s 2 month old son, Arthur! It felt like a giant family reunion all around!
Oxon Hill Manor was in full Cherry Blossom bloom on Laura + Connor’s big day and I’m not sure we could have asked for a more perfect day. Laura + Connor decided not to see one another before the ceremony, but did write one another letters. It was tears on both side…and behind the camera. The speeches proved as entertaining as I hoped, with much laughter and a little bit of roasting of the bride from her family! And of course, it wouldn’t have been Laura’s dream wedding if the food hadn’t been insane and out of this world, complete with delicious, late night snacks like fish and chips and mini ice cream cones and sorbets. Yum!
Such a beautiful couple and a wonderful family…congrats you two!
