Love, Lights, and Starry Nights

Oh, starry starry night! I think it’s safe to say that when we think of beautiful things, this dreamy, iconic masterpiece of Van Gogh is definitely on the list. Maybe that’s just one of the reasons this wedding turned out so brilliantly, and yay for us! It was also brilliantly captured by Jowell Mariano! How do we begin? How about: a glowing bride who must’ve been a vision down that aisle, the sweetest invitations by Moki Gray, on-point reception lighting, and the piece of art that is that Veluz gown! (Can you say sleeves?) To cake-topper it all off, take a look at that darling creation by Hearts and Bells. It’s a capital Y-E-S to absolutely everything–and oh, it’s a starry, starry night, indeed!

P.S. – Don’t forget to check out their same-day edit by Treehouse Story at the bottom of the post!
