When Adam & Emily told me they were getting married at a library and were going for a library themed event I couldn’t wait – it sounded awesome and it was. Emily and I went to high school together so it was such an honor to be there for her special day and to re-connect with her! Their pup Winnie of course stole my heart immediately and I couldn’t get enough photos of her. Adam & Emily were relaxed throughout the day and really seemed to relax and enjoy themselves – something which can not be said for every couple! Enjoy the photos.
As we get later into the fall I even more strongly encourage my couples to do a first look so we have beautiful natural light for their photos – the leaves also provided a nice carpet for their first look
All the tables were named after favorite authors and decorated with a portrait and a stack of books. Library cards listed who was seated at the table and what their dinner choice was
Bookmarks were placed on top of menus and their guest books were old books cut out in the shape of “love.” Their seating chart mirrored the Dewey Decimal system – so fun
I love when both parents walk their kids down the aisle – such a testament to the support and love they’ve given over the years
Emily’s Brother (a librarian himself!) did a fabulous job officiating the ceremony
A receiving line allowed Emily & Adam to greet guests…..and then took the pressure off of them for the rest of the evening
A few more portraits now that it’s official!
The main room looked so cozy filled to the brim with Emily & Adam’s closest friends and family
Everyone headed up to the Dome room after dinner for dessert and dancing
And Winnie walked them home at the end of the night to where they were staying – perfect!
Congratulations, Emily & Adam!!
