Lynn & Quin’s Mountainside Wedding

I’m convinced I was a butler in a former life. And like Mr. Carson in the TV show, Downton Abbey, I appreciate and expect order. With proper planning, agendas, and lists what could go wrong, right?

For Lynn & Quin’s wedding a couple of pesky episodes reared their heads but deserve a shout out. For example, the days of pouring rain leading up to the wedding. Or the gardeners who very efficiently planted all of 100+ succulents I planned on using to compliment the table centerpieces. On the day of the wedding, the gigantic truck that got stuck in the mud directly behind the ceremony altar – it wasn’t the look I was going for. And lastly, Beatrice, the ‘bridespup’, who decided to poop and pee in front of all guests while the wedding party made their entrance (see photo evidence).

With all that conflama, the wedding day was fine. In fact it was more than fine and as my mom used to say, that’s how the mop flops.

Thank you to my brilliant team, Far/Wid Photography for these stunning images: Leah Nichols from Rodale Catering and Events for the absolutely scrumptious food; Rich from Special Events Rentals and countless others who made Lynn & Quin’s wedding the success it was.

  2. Love, this, Mark and I would play Mrs. Hughs to your Mr. Carson any day! 🙂 Your creativity and eye for detail shows in everything you do. Spectacular event!

  3. Mark, the vintage doors as an altar are truly great — such an atmosphere setter and really a great touch.
