it’s that time of year
when the world falls in love
every song you hear seems to say
“merry christmas
may your new year’s dreams come true”

and this song of mine
in three-quarter time
wishes you and yours
the same thing, too

Imagine a windy drive up into the mountains. A cozy cottage-like venue with an accompanying chateau, tucked in the woods and surrounded by trees. There is a quiet fountain, a moss-covered ceremony arch, a set of wooden swings, even a lifesize chessboard! Sounds like something out of a storybook, a fairytale, does it not?

And so you can imagine how it would be the perfect location for this enchanted forest inspired wedding! During our first meeting, Leah explained her love of stories and how she wanted to incorporate whimsical story-like elements into her day. As if the venue itself wasn’t perfect enough, they tied in all sorts of woodsy, fantastical elements – colorful and organic bundles of flowers, stacks of books, birdcages, jars of honey, mushrooms, even gnomes! (With most of these details created by Matt’s aunt!)

I love how Leah and Matt were able to incorporate so much of what they love into their wedding day – the result was seriously magical :)

I resisted it for the longest time, I really did. Because I knew – I knew once I joined, I’d be so captivated by all the pretty images on there, and be incessantly posting my own photos of food, and tea cups, and my feet, and sunsets, and food, and my boyfriend, and trees, and travels, and food, and everything & anything I found beautiful and/or inspirational (read: most things).
