{Real Weddings} Anita & Zachary’s Vintage Romance

by Laicie

There’s a time when a man needs to fight and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny’s lost, the ship has sailed and that only a fool will continue. The truth is I’ve always been a fool.”

Did you ever see Big Fish?

It’s one of my favorite movies ever, and particularly meaningful to Mark and I.

If you haven’t seen it, do it now.  I’m serious.  It might just change your life.

If you have, I promise I really do have a point… you know when Edward goes to Spectre (the first time?) and it’s so perfect.  The shoes are hung on the power line, everyone is all smiles, and the lights in the middle of the town just sparkle like crazy?  That is what Anita and Zachary’s wedding reminds me of.

A simpler, more beautiful time.

It stole my heart.

Here’s what their photographer had to say:

Anita and Zach had an outdoor wedding at the family pond, which has long been a location for family picnic’s and get-together’s. They managed to transform the pond from an everyday picnic location into a magical outdoor reception site, complete with candles hanging from willow trees and fireworks to finish off the night. While planning a wedding from out-of-state, Anita was sure to include special details that focused on their relationship as well as their families. Most of the details were either created by Anita herself, or by friends and family members, keeping the wedding as Do-It-Yourself as possible, while still being elegant and enchanting.
