our surprise wedding — featured in a magazine!

by Amy on 3 November 2011

I have some fun news to share – as some of you know, my husband + i married in a surprise wedding about six months ago. Excitingly, a wonderful local magazine, her nashville, asked to feature us + our wedding in their November issue. We were beyond flattered + excited, + of course, quickly agreed.

The November issue is now out + the feature turned out absolutely amazing! Click the image above + expand it to see the full-size feature, read about our story + see pictures from our big day. You can also go to the online issue to read it there.

If you’re in the area, make sure you pick up the November issue of her nashville to check out our story. + thank you so much to Her Nashville¬†for featuring us + our surprise wedding!

OK I just read the online article and WOW, what an amazing wedding! We got married in Colorado by ourselves at a B&B and it was wonderful.

Amy, these pictures are just breathtaking, and your wedding day sounded like it was just fabulous! How wonderful to have these memories captured in print; I know this is something special you’ll treasure always.

thank you so much, ashley! someone on facebook suggested having it professionally framed, which i thought was a lovely idea. that way we can appreciate it every day. =)

thank you so much, steph! the food was definitely fantastic + i thought the wedding was a huge success. there really wasn’t a single thing that i would change about that day, which says a lot coming from a perfectionist like me. =)

congrats! i absolutely adore your wedding story. I too had an untraditional wedding (on a beach in Aruba!), and I know how fun and exciting they are :)

9 amy November 3, 2011 at 3:31 pm

aren’t they the best? i bet your beach wedding was just amazing. we actually talked about doing that before we settled on the surprise wedding idea. we wound up going to the caribbean for our honeymoon, so we still got a little beach time, too. =)

I’m not at all surprised. Your wedding was stunning & such a fabulous event, pulled off to perfection. And the photos had a beautiful editorial feel, like something you’d see in Brides Magazine. I wish I had a copy of Her Nashville – that article looks beautiful. So happy for you Amy! If anyone deserves to have their wedding profiled it’s you! Congrats doll!! :)

16 amy November 3, 2011 at 6:35 pm

you are too sweet! thank you so so much for your kind words, ally. and maybe you’ll make it up to nashville sometime during the month of november + then you can see it in person? =) just an idea!

18 amy November 3, 2011 at 7:24 pm

you’re so sweet, wendy! i’m glad that you’re getting a little time tonight to catch up on some of your favorite blogs. i know how that goes – sometimes my google reader gets so behind that it’s daunting! but i’m thrilled that you made your way back here tonight + thanks for your super nice comments. =)
