Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Beautiful Harmony

I really, really, really love that Melissa and Robert met on eHarmony. I mean, it feels like yesterday, when I first started planning weddings, that people still met in bars... Just kidding (I mean I met my husband in a bar, but we all can't be that lucky now can we?), but seriously? I do remember when meeting online was somewhat of a faux pas. And now, it's totally commonplace. Seriously, today I'm like a walking advertisement for online dating sites! Just read what Melissa had to say about meeting Robert, and the rest of the deets!

Rachel: "Robert & I met on eHarmony. We actually both remember looking at each other’s profiles. After he saw that I viewed his, he emailed me. We started communicating around Thanksgiving in 2010 and just talked for a few weeks. We went on our first date on 12/11/10 at Cuba Cuba in Denver (Robert is ½ Cuban). We hit it off on our first date and the rest is history!"

Yeah... Wedding Paper Divas! Truly stunning invitations, don't you think?I know that I shouldn't tell you this, but I am really proud of how my little mash up of photographs turned out. I am a wedding planner, not a web designer, and I'm pretty proud! Just sayin'...So honest. So lovely.Loving the purple!!Such a proud papa!! Melissa is barely holding it together...I love it when a couple can't wait to kiss. (Damn... I'm such a softie!)I am OB SESS ED with this venue. OBSESSED. I love the openness, and I love all of the decor. Rachel (on one of her favorite parts of the wedding day): "The entire wedding day & having each person in that room be special to you and there to share the day with you was so lovely. We had friends from different parts of our lives along with our families and to see everyone enjoying each other as much as we enjoy them was just heartwarming."Simple, blingy and perfect.Seriously? Aren't you amazed by this space?Gimme! Gimme! FAB U LOUS!
