Mally + Mike wedding {by liz}

I still have an overwhelming sense that this year of weddings has just barely started, yet somehow I already feel like I’ve seen all kinds of awesomeness! All kinds of smiles, lots of laughs and plenty of love. All of my favorite things of the non-shiny variety! Mally and Mike were married just before the tulips finished blooming this spring. It’s almost as if Mally called in a favor to mother nature so that the world would match her and Mike’s wedding colors. How fun is that?! Just wait…you’ll see what I mean. I figured this Irish couple needed a little green in their photos so I enlisted the help of a house plant. ;)

It’s obvious where Mally gets her smile and laugh from.

Mike didn’t really get the concept of “nuzzling.” Which turned into Mally trying to force him to nuzzle. Which in turn made us all break down in laughter as an exasperated Mike exclaimed that he had no idea how to nuzzle. Which still makes me crack up. I may make him a t-shirt that says just that.
