Some photos I’ve been gathering together of the party, taken by our incredible photographer friends Lili and James. It was such a beautiful night!
My month of preparations is over from making all these tiny paper cranes, driftwood birds, painted flags and tablecloths, silkscreened napkins, making my dress, designing invitations and custom wine labels (with a little borrowed background illustration from here that I loved too much not to use), and hanging lanterns, lights, ribbons and streamers..
More photos from James here and here.
