Melinda + Matthew {Re-gift 2011!}

Melinda and Matthew were the winners of our little photography contest hosted by the wonderful blog Postcards and Pretties last year! I wanna say that our motivation for our giveaway is purely goodwill, but I honestly feel like we walk away with so much more than our winners.

There is no way for me to be brief and “get-on” to the pictures plus I haven’t found a succinct list of adjectives that can sum up how I feel about them and their wedding, so I’ll apologize upfront for a wordy, rambly blog post. Here it goes …

Melinda and Matthew were married in the village of Arden, Delaware at Gild Hall. The pureness and authenticity of their day is what stands out in my mind. There was nothing slightly lacking or anything superflous or extra. They tapped the shoulders of their local network of vendors, friends, family, artists and musicians to make their wedding uniquely their own.

They had two bands perform at their wedding. Good Dust performed a super sweet set after the ceremony and  The David Wax museum who is a nationally touring band and doesn’t usually make it a point to perform at weddings. But there is a sweet story to their appearance. The David Wax Museum is the first band Melinda and Matthew saw together as a couple. So Melinda contacted them and I’m sure very sweetly and genuinely requested their presence. (How could they say no, right?)

We are very much in the business of capturing other people’s memories but as we were editing through their wedding I fondly realized that at some point we made some of our own. I could easily rattle-off more amazing personal touches, but if you go to P&P’s you can read Melinda’s account of their wedding day and planning.

Thank you Melinda and Matthew for your kindness, authenticity and grace. Thank you, thank you, thank you … for everything!!
