Gwendolyn and Bobby… Oh how I love this couple. You might remember them from their super fun engagement session with the movie poster theme…
Then they turned those photos into some pretty incredible save the date announcements with the help of their buddy Matt Lloyd. Click here to see a pic of those.
You can tell just by their engagement photos they have a truckload of personality… but if there is any doubt… keep reading.
They were married at Bobby’s mom’s lovely home situated amongst the birches and on the shores of a gorgeous lake.
I checked in with the beautiful Gwendolyn just as she was in her final stages of makeup.
And then hung with the groomsmen & women for Bobby’s final prep moments.
This cutie pie pup was watching all in between naps.
Looking dandy, Bobby! Though, at this point, it should be pointed out that I began to call him Bobert, just for fun.
Having a grooms-lady in the mix, makes the mafia pose just that much cooler. Bobby found these awesome Vera Wang Tux’s at Mens Warehouse.
Gandalf would be proud. Bobby gave these great pipes to all of his attendants.
Gwendolyn’s absolutely stunning Alfred Angelo gown was purchased at Anderson’s Bridal. It was the picture of royalty.
Gwendolyn really wanted to honor the women who had gone before her in her lineage.. So she included bits of her grandmother’s wedding gown in her cute little capped sleeves and on her ring pillow… and even on her flowers.
Wow WOW wow!
Gwendolyn gets all perfect, ready and gorgeous… and then she gets down on the ground to say hello to the bear rug. Did I mention how much I love this lady?
I never complain when I see those six foot tall flowers… Fireweed is so lovely. Perfect for this regal photo.
Sometimes I run out of words to express how beautiful the bride is… but holy smokes! Gwendolyn is one purdy lady!
Gwendolyn is so creative, she even made Bobby’s ring!
Bride and bridesmaids and bridesman. Arctic Rose helped Gwendolyn find these gorgeous Liz Fields Bridesmaid’s gowns.
Gwendolyn’s family are all just lovely people!
All I know is he loves her with all his heart!
Occasionally we have summers like this in Alaska… The forecast predicted rain, but this is what they got! Stunning blue skies!
Bobby built the awesome drift wood archway… and then as a surprise and at last minute he added this awesome plaque that had their wedding theme words burned into it.
Shhh, don’t tell Bobby! As Gwendolyn’s surprise, she had a super fun Steam Punk style hat to bring out at the reception. (It was made by her mom, Monica!)
And then it was time… The moment had arrived.
Both of Gwendolyn’s parents escorted her down the aisle. (And I can’t be sure, but I am pretty sure I spotted Bobby wipe away a tear or two)
I’m a pretty sneaky lady… I had permission to take photos of these two’s first few moments together as man and wife… but it is all the more sweet when they didn’t even realize I was there yet.
They took a few moments to snuggle Bobby’s sweet old Doggie and then make things official.
Then we spent a few moments to make some pretty photos as Mr & Mrs.
Love this one:
There she goes again… being all stunning.
Meanwhile, the guests were over at the reception enjoying each other and the fun things Bobby and Gwendolyn had made for them.
Did you see that awesome beer tap bar one in the photos above? IT was super cool! One of their good friends made that for the wedding! (I want one!)
Check out this fun chandelier Gwendolyn made! Recognize the pieces and parts?
These little people at the wedding enjoy the reception in their own way:
Seriously talented Gwendolyn made this great cake topper. Her bridesmaid, Christine Aumick, pulled double duty and made this adorable cake to match! Isn’t it great!?
Gwendolyn has traveled the world… and at each destination she has enjoyed a special bottle of something. This special champagne was supposed to be enjoyed at her next exotic destination (Antarctica). When she met Bobby, she chose to savor it at their wedding.
Even the sky joined in with the color scheme!
I expect these two will have much fun with each other.
Then the couple hopped into the speedboat to go to their super secret honeymoon location across the lake where I would meet up with them for a few more romantic photos.
And then this happened. What a fun way to celebrate!
At the honeymoon location, we took just a few more photos of the two.
At some point on the speed boat ride Gwendolyn got pretty wet from a wave. Her response: “Now, there isn’t any reason to NOT to get in the lake!” What a great way to look at life!
Gwendolyn and Bobby… we truly enjoyed our day with you. Thanks so much for allowing us to be a part!
