What an absolutely fantastic wedding! I mean it was just soo wonderful! I completely adore Kara….and Peter…and their families! This wedding was soo full of happiness & love! Before the wedding, I heard Kara say….”you know, I’m really the most excited about getting to marry Peter”. I love that because it shows they have really kept the wedding in perspective…and put love as the top priority. Kara & Peter are sooo in love. 😉

Now…let me just tell you about the wedding, because it was nothing short of INCREDIBLE…not ONE detail was overlooked! I mean it! Kara and her mother were totally amazing. There was such care and consideration put into each and every part of the wedding! From the dress being purchased at a charity for breast cancer and the proceeds going to cancer research, to the antique tussey mussies that each bouquet sat in, to the amazing candy bar (pictured below) in honor of Kara’s love for candy, to the spectacular custom decor done by Kara’s mother in all of Kara’s favorite colors, to sparklers on the top of the wedding cake in honor of 4th of July, to the amazing band that created such a fun party, to the pizza & breadsticks delivered late in the evening for guests to nibble on, to the grand exit with sparklers & a horse and carriage. It was totally spectacular and wonderful! I also love how genuine and kind Kara, Peter and both of their families are. They were always soo concerned about my happiness and my comfort. It really mean’t alot to me! 🙂 It was such an incredible day with such amazing people and I was soo honored to be a part of it! 🙂
