A blended family wedding with two brides and a long-lost ring

Nicole and Julie had a lovely outdoor ceremony in Washington full of emotional touches. They had lots of DIY projects and planned the whole shebang in only two months. One very sweet surprise for Julie was during the ceremony when Julie's father and Nicole surprised her with her grandmother's ring, which was thought to be lost. The wedding party consisted of their blended family, including Nicole's four children. Julie had never worn a dress before and wanted her first time to be her wedding dress! Thanks to Alisha from Haute Pink Photography for letting us share this wedding.

  1. I love the silly bridal party picture. I have been pretty obsessed with finding 'humor in matrimony' photos these days. You'd be surprised at how many wedding albums come back with no humor whatsoever. Beautiful wedding and congratulations to the happy couple!

    • I know, right? What's up with all the angst in wedding photos these days? Weddings are supposed to be happy and fun. Fun!, forcryinoutloud. That being said, my favorite photo is actually the one where Julie sees the ring… that one choked me up. I just love this wedding. Congratulations to Julie and Nicole!

    • I really need to get a post together….I gave my squad parasols instead of flowers, and there is totally a shot of parasol fencing that is the one which makes us deeply happy.

  3. Love this wedding! Looks like a lot of fun – am I the only one who wants to know how Julie felt in the dress? The first dress ever experience… how did it go??

  5. Why does OBB feel the need to point out when it's a gay couple's wedding (ie, two brides, LGBT wedding, etc)?

    I fully support same-sex marriages; doesn't constantly pointing out the difference between these wedding posts and "regular" weddings just reinforce the idea that they aren't equal?
    Just a thought…

  7. I LOVE that she wanted to save wearing a dress for her wedding day, so sweet! But I love even more that she changed later on. It showcases both sides of her so well. Beautiful!
